Photographer Joe McNally posted his thoughts on the new PocketWizard Plus® III radio triggers. Detailing a test shoot he did with a car able to achieve speeds of 280 miles per hour, McNally mounted cameras and Plus III units outside the vehicle.
He also extended the signal by placing two units down the track in RP, or Repeater Mode. This effectively allowed him to control the cameras from a great distance away as the vehicle raced across the desert floor. McNally estimates his furthest repeater unit was set up approximately 800 feet away. He writes:
“The PW [Plus] IIIs I had performed like a champ, even though they are not production line units, and they all were short of final firmware, which might have affected their working distance.”
