A sister post has been published simultaneously on the Sekonic blog due to the shared technology featured belonging to both Sekonic and PocketWizard.
Here’s some exciting news for Nikon PocketWizard users interested in metering to get the most accurate exposures possible with their off-camera flash.
Dinil Abeygunawardane at Visible Range Blog has posted a most impressive article entitled “Sekonic L-758 with RT-32CTL, PocketWizards & Nikon Speedlights.”
With Sekonic’s new RT-32CTL you can now use a Sekonic L-358 or L-758 to meter flash with PocketWizard ControlTL radios. Dinil centers his post around Nikon-based PocketWizard radio triggers, including the FlexTT5 and the MiniTT1. In fact, he fires off what appears to be seven FlexTT5 radios with his Nikon speedlights!
The post goes into tremendous detail and features screenshots of the Sekonic Data Transfer Software, a meter’s LCD screen, and the PocketWizard Utility Settings software. This post will guide you through Dinil’s configuring of his system.

A comprehensive article has been published on controlling Nikon Speedlights with precision using PocketWizard FlexTT5, MiniTT1, AC3 ZoneController, and a Sekonic L-758DR lightmeter with the RT-32CTL Radio Transmitter Module.
Author Dinil Abeygunawardane has posted a fascinating tutorial on the Visible Range Blog. It’s absolutely worth your time to read. The article details how to set up the above list of gear with Nikon Speedlights and dial in specific light values for different units remotely.
The radio trigger for the Sekonic works with the firmware update for the PocketWizards (at time of writing, still in beta) to make the whole process more convenient. As Dinil writes,”No more running up and down, lowering light stands or opening up soft boxes.” Photos of the lightmeter’s LCD and screenshots of PocketWizard Utility abound.
This is a great job and worth your time if you’re a Nikon shooter. Read the full step-by-step tutorial and check out the rest of Visible Range while you’re there.
