First of all, there is a need to update the firmware of both TT1 and TT5 radios to
the Beta firmware 2.123 (to date) found at "Advanced Mode" of the Pocket Wizard Utility.
I got this information from PW tech support when I had trouble triggering my AB1600 with
a D90 + TT1 + TT5 + AC9 (2.100 updated) set-up. They said that this detail was not noted
on the Quick Guide/Manual.

Once I had the 2.123 update everything ran the way PW claims this baby should.
It's almost like having a big brother for my SB-900 where I have control of my Alien Bee
right on my camera. You can't believe how much time you can save and how convenient this
feature is.

A definite must have for Nikon + Alien Bee owners

I bought the PW system with the intent of using them mainly for strobes....spent hours on the PW website learning and watching videos...

I wanted to get some studio strobes and have been working with the Alien Bees at the photo club...

Bees are a solid, good enry level strobe, that won't bust your budget, but, they do not have all the "digital" capabilities that some of the more expensive higher end systems....e.g. Norman's, Einsteins, Photonic, etc...the one thing I didn't like was the running back and forth to adjust the manual Bee's light power..in most system you still ahve to pay for the sync modules...with my system now..it was just another $60 or so to have it digital..

However, with the TT5 and a AC9 controller, I essential have a fully digital system, controlled by the top of the camera through the TT1 with a AC3 controller...

Is the PW system expensive ? Yes, does it work Darn Right !!!

The TT5 allows me now to combine my Bees with SB900, 910, 600's in the studio and outdoor environment....i have 4 TT5's and I now have a fully indepdent system, and while the Nikon CLS system is great when you have line of sight...the PW system works via radio control.

Great product....

When the AC9's are properly functioning, they are wonderful. It is so much more convenient to be able to remotely and separately adjust your lighting from the camera position. However, I have had various intermittent issues with them. To be fair, I'm still trying to figure out whether the problem is with me or the AC9's or the Alien Bees, but at times the lights won't respond to the Mini or a TTL5. At other times, the lights start firing off in a stroboscopic fashion, and continue until I shut them down. The last two outings have not produced these anomalies, so I suspect the problem lay somewhere in my connections or start up sequence (You must heed PocketWizard's instructions on the order of starting up the lights and the various transmitters and receivers.), but it concerns me enough that I cannot go with a full 5-star rating. For now, all appears to be well.

This was so easy to use and it worked like a charm, straight out of the box with my Flex and Alien Bee 400.

I wasn't sure these would work on my 10-plus-year-old White Lightning Ultra 1200s, so I only ordered one. I very quickly ordered two more. These little beauties allow me, in conjunction with Flex TT5s and the AC3 Zone Adapter, to control my Ultras from my camera instead of rushing back and forth from one strobe to another adjusting power levels.
