Great Flash Photography Anywhere, with a PocketWizard Radio Slave
With the range of PocketWizard radio slaves available on eBay, you can find the right device for your camera and flash system. PocketWizard slaves can trigger not only remotely positioned strobes, but also camera flashes at a distance of up to several hundred metres. This makes them ideal for catching those tricky shots in places that you would not otherwise be able to handle a camera, but also need a flash for your shoot. There are a number of models available with different compatibilities, so it is best to see the manufacturer site for details on the best Wizard for your set-up.What do the MiniTT1 and FlexTT5 do?
The PocketWizard MiniTT1 transmitter and the Flex transceivers are used for Canon as well as Nikon DSLR camera and strobe systems. They can control TTL flashes, whether through single, multiple, electronic or intelligent off-camera designs. This gives you the freedom to set up both TTl and manual flashes anywhere, including out-of-sight areas and in brightly-lit spaces. They are also compatible with any PocketWizard radio.Which PocketWizard product should you choose?
There are a number of radios and accessories available, so it is important to make sure you get the right one for you. Many offer specific features and are compatible with certain cameras and flash systems. Some of these include:
- Flex TT6 for Canon: Compatible with newer Canon cameras and flashes with the same PocketWizard flagship TTL features.
- Flex TT5 for Nikon: Very versatile, giving great control over Nikon equipment.
- PowerMC2: Operates Einstein flashes remotely. By combining a MiniTT1 transmitter or FlexTT5 transceiver and a PowerMC2 plugged into the Einstein flash, it is now possible to adjust the flash settings from the camera postition.
Buying a used radio slave means that you can add professional accessories to your kit at an affordable price. Taking a PocketWizard with you on your photography shoots means that you can activate that crucial flash in places that are impossible to stand in. This makes it the ideal companion for shooting sports matches, where you might want to position the camera behind goals or on the sidelines for mid-action shots. As they operate wirelessly, PocketWizard radio slaves are also very convenient, eliminating the need for messy cords and sync cables which can be easily forgotten or mixed up.Content provided for informational purposes only. eBay is not affiliated with or endorsed by PocketWizard.
