Product Description

Style: TT5 Transceiver

Product Description

The FlexTT5 transceiver shares the MiniTT1 transmitter’s(ordered sepretaly) features and adds the advanced auto-sensing and relay modes introduced with the PocketWizard Plus II, as well as camera and flash ports for PocketWizard cable connection to any camera or flash system. Used as a transmitter, the FlexTT5 can provide TTL auto flash at distances of up to 800 feet* and conventional triggering up to 1200 feet* with the aid of a flip-up antenna.The unit feature a two-position channel selector that is factory programmed to the PocketWizard classic channel one and two. Using the included software and USB port, you can program either channel to any of the PocketWizard system’s 32 digitally encoded channels and four zones. A special Learning Mode enables simple, in-the-field programming of all channels.

From the Manufacturer

Use the FlexTT5 Transceiver with the MiniTT1 Transmitter to control single or multiple off-camera electronic or intelligent E-TTL Speedlites. You can now place TTL or manual flashes anywhere to illuminate the scene: Around corners, out-of-sight and in bright sunlight. The MiniTT1 and FlexTT5 are compatible with any PocketWizard radio for triggering manual flash or remote cameras.
Plus X Full Features List

ControlTL™ PocketWizard's newest firmware platform taps into the camera's digital communications to enable an entirely new level of remote flash capability through our proven radio system. ControlTL allows remote i-TTL for Nikon CLS / i-TTL systems as well as Manual Power Control. ControlTL firmware is configurable and upgradeable for "future-proof" continuous improvement.

Dedicated CLS / i-TTL TriggeringLocking your FlexTT5 Transceiver into the hot shoe of a Nikon DSLR camera, and mounting CLS / i-TTL flashes onto FlexTT5 Transceivers gives you full flash exposure control with the freedom and reliability of a PocketWizard radio. There are no special settings to make or modes to call up. Use the camera's exposure compensation controls for basic control of remote flashes, or add an AC3 ZoneController or Nikon Master unit for even more flexibility. High Speed Sync / FPWhen HyperSync can't keep up, FP/High Speed Sync takes over for Speedlight flash photography all the way to 1/8000. Use this feature to shoot wide open in bright sun for amazing results. ControlTL optimizes this amazing feature by shortening the flash burst to the precise amount needed resulting in faster recycling times and more flashes per battery set when shooting in Nikon's HSS/FP Flash mode.

Manual Power ControlAdjust the manual power settings of your remote Nikon Speedlights directly from a SB-800, SB-900 flash or PocketWizard AC3 ZoneController mounted on your on-camera FlexTT5. Working with a Nikon SB-800, SB-900 or AC3 in the shoe of the FlexTT5, you can independently control the power output of up to three remote groups of lights (you can have as many lights in each group as you want) from full power down to the lowest setting. Now you can work with total control with your remote lights, without leaving your shooting position. Nikon SU-800 Wireless Speedlight Commander may also be used.

SpeedCycler with an AC3 ZoneControllerPreviously only seen with PocketWizard's MultiMAX radios, this new mode is designed to rapidly cycle through multiple flash units fired individually in sequence. This allows photographers to fire a camera in sync with flashes faster than a single flash unit can recycle. It can also be used for triggering remote cameras sequentially. SpeedCycler is engaged on a transmitting MiniTT1 or FlexTT5 via the PocketWizard Utility. SpeedCycler mode requires an AC3 ZoneController in the top hot-shoe of the on-camera PocketWizard radio. Zones A, B, and C will be triggered sequentially and individual zones can be disabled by setting the AC3's Zone Switch to the off position. Both TTL and manual flash controls are supported.

HyperSync™Our patent pending HyperSync technology allows photographers to achieve faster X-sync speeds, sometimes up to 1/8000 of a second. Now you can cut the ambient light and use wide-open apertures, outdoors in bright sunlight. HyperSync automatically adjusts the timing of your flash trigger so that faster than X-sync speeds can be achieved. Just imagine what you can do using flash in bright sun with wide open apertures and fast shutter speeds. Since HyperSync is a trigger function you can use any PocketWizard Receiver. HyperSync works with both TTL speedlites and full size studio flash.


PowerTrackingWhen working with the PowerST4, PowerMC2 and AC9/FlexTT5 paired with compatible manual flashes, you can change any of your settings on your camera and the system adjusts for those changes. Change your exposure compensation to adjust the exposure or make adjustments in aperture or ISO and the system balances your flash for proper exposure.

Pre-Flash BoostNikon flashes use a dual preflash system to calculate i-TTL exposure values. In many TTL situations, including shooting in full sun, over long distance or using diffusers or bounce flash, the normal pre-flash is simply not enough for the camera to see. PocketWizard's Pre-Flash Boost increases your remote Nikon flashes first preflash by three stops and, if necessary, the second preflash by one stop. The boost level can also be adjusted at the flash if necessary.

ZoneControl Add the AC3 ZoneController on top of your FlexTT5 and gain three zones of power control right from the camera's position. Works in both auto/CLS/i-TTL and manual. Shut down an entire zone with the flick of a switch.

*AC3 Zone Controller Sold Seperately

Optimized Rear Curtain Sync
Precise rear curtain sync capability is engaged automatically, no buttons to press. Set the shutter speed at which rear curtain sync is engaged with the PocketWizard Utility. Capture natural light trails with sharp exposures at the end – no "after trails!"


Continuous Fast FPSRadios work a lot fast then infrared communications allowing you to shoot with remote flash in CLS / i-TTL at speeds close to your maximum frames per second. Never before have you been able to shoot remote CLS / i-TTL non-stop in continuous high-speed mode. Fill the buffer! Nothing else comes close.

Basic Trigger Mode Allows the MiniTT1 or FlexTT5 to work as a transmitter on ANY camera it will fit. Anyone looking for the small form factor of the MiniTT1 can use it on other DSLR's, SLR's or even medium format cameras with standard hot shoes. The MiniTT1 and FlexTT5 are completely reverse compatible with all previous PocketWizards so they will work with whatever PocketWizards you already own.


Flash Power Control without a CameraPhotographers can now take their AC3 and transmitting radio off-camera and use it to set power levels for any flash with a ControlTL receiver, making it more convenient to use an optically triggered light meter, or control the power levels with just a MiniTT1/FlexTT5 and AC3 in their hand while another photographer takes the pictures. Previously, an AC3 ZoneController on a MiniTT1 or FlexTT5 needed to be on camera to send manual power levels to remote flashes. Now, when connected to a MiniTT1 or FlexTT5, manual power levels are transmitted to remote flashes when the TEST button is pressed even when the transmitter is off the camera. This affects both speedlights connected to receiving FlexTT5s and larger flashes like AlienBees and Elinchrom RX units with ControlTL receivers.

Built-in Hot ShoeLock your Nikon flash into the FlexTT5's dedicated hot shoe and combine your remote flash with on-camera flash or use the on-camera flash for additional CLS / i-TTL or Manual Power Control only. The metal and glass reinforced resin hot shoe assembly is a superstructure onto itself and incredibly durable. The best part; no more cords.

Channels / Learn Mode The FlexTT5 has two channel configuration settings; C1 and C2. Each can be programmed as needed with up to 20 ControlTL channels* for TTL photography or Manual Power Control, or 32 standard channels** for manual flash photography. Channels can be configured with the PocketWizard utility or use the Learn function to quickly program channels, or the reset function to configure back to factory settings.

* - 20 ControlTL channels for FCC/IC 344 MHz radios and three ControlTL channels for CE 433 MHz radios.

** - 32 Standard channels for FCC/IC 344 MHz radios and 35 Standard channels for CE 433 MHz radios.

Auto Trigger Select for ControlTLThe hot shoe on both the MiniTT1 and Flex TT5 will trigger just about any hot shoe flash placed into it in addition to the Nikon Speedlite's it is designed for. Yes, you can now fire just about any hot shoe flash including Vivatar, Nikon, etc., in manual mode only and not TTL mode. (max trigger voltage < 50V, use P2 port for up to 200V)

Low-Profile DesignThe FlexTT5 lies flat, stays out of the way and features a flip-up antenna for additional range when needed.

Auto-Relay ModeEasily trigger a remote camera in sync with distant remote flashes with Auto-Relay Mode. Put a camera where you can't be and have remote TTL or non-TTL lighting at the same time. Expand your coverage and increase your creativity.

Customer Questions & Answers

Customer Reviews

If you shoot adults or teens, you'll love the ease of use and versatility of being able to use ETTL.
Suffice it to say the PocketWizard Mini TT1 & Flex TT5 for Nikon simply work reliably and have a great feature set.
TTL works just like it was on the camera, and being able to control it from the camera is awesome as well!

Style Name: TT1 Radio Transmitter
Bottom line - Cream of the Crop

3/16 UPDATE - Please keep in mind that the next generation PocketWizard has been announced. That said, these are still great controllers.

I've been using this miniTT1 and FlexTT5s with my D90 and D200 for several months now. To say that they are perfect would be an overstatement. To say they work every bit as well as if they were hard-cabled is pretty much dead on. And with these things you don't have the challenges of tripping over or getting twisted in long wire runs.

As a simple example, I can set my flash (Nikon SB-800 AF Speedlight for Nikon Digital SLR Cameras - Old Version) with a Gary Fong Lightsphere Universal System Cloud attached on a stand in the middle of a large room. I have my camera (Nikon D200 10.2MP Digital SLR Camera (Body Only)) set to manual exposure, 1/30 @ f5.6. Pictures I take anywhere in the room are perfectly exposed.

They also work perfectly, albeit without the TTL functions, with the original PocketWizard Plus II Transceiver 801-125 Relay Radio Slave Transmitter Receiver 2-piece w/ PockeWizard Case for 2 in the mix.

There were some issues with the Canon version of these controllers and that was attributed to both the Mini/Flex and Canon "natively" using radio signals to control things.

Style Name: Mini TT1 & Flex TT5 Kit Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I'll start the review by noting that this is for the bundle of a Mini (for your camera) and two flexes (for external flashes). I would recommend checking the individual prices of these products first since the bundle seems to be at about the same price if the pieces were bought individually. Since the Mini is ONLY a transmitter (the Flex is a transceiver: it transmits and receives), and because it uses coin batteries and not AAs like the Flex, quit a few people prefer to have all Flexes and not buy the Mini at all. As such, you may want to buy a set of Flexes instead. My personal opinion is that I love the low profile and low weight of the Mini on my camera (though I keep leaving the thing on and draining the coin batteries, which can be annoying to replace).

Also, note that these are (as described in the title and description) for NIKON equipment only. To make the most use of them, you will need a Nikon camera body and a set of Nikon flashes.



Right off the bat, I LOVE the design improvements over their predecessors, the PW Plus IIs. And these do appear to be much more reliable than their Canon Flex/Mini counterparts. The extra time that Pocket Wizard put into developing the Nikon version appears to have paid off. However, several beta testers I know and quite a few users have noted some limitations in these first versions. But each software upgrade (that you can download from the Pocket Wizard website) greatly fixes and enhances the units. As with the Canon versions, I expect them to get better and better over time with each upgrade.

Style Name: TT5 Transceiver Verified Purchase
I spent over $1000 US and purchased a set of the flex an TT5's also AC9 and the Power control for the mini. These have never worked consistently. I shoot Weddings professionally in the Caribbean and have been embarrassed on several occasions asking my assistant if the flash has fired!, this was while shooting with the bride infront the camera.

so after months I of trying with them, updating the firmware and trying different flashes, It got so bad that I sent everything to Pocket Wizard.

No communication for three weeks. when I finally called the office and spoke to rep, she is informing me that all the products that I sent had water damage?????? And that the only thing she could for me is to give me a 15% discount on my next order???????????....

I will never buy pocket Wizards ever...

Since they told me that I have bought the Phottix Odin TTL Flash Trigger for Nikon, 2 Receivers, and OMG- they are amazing. they totally work right out of the box. They work with my SB 910 also the SB 800 and 600.

These guys were the standard once. those days are so gone. no costumer service and shi.. policies

Style Name: TT5 Transceiver Verified Purchase
I purchased 3 of these things a couple of months ago. I'd been excited since they were first announced, and then dismayed at how quickly there were all of the problems reported by Canon shooters, and then the subsequent 2-year delay in getting the Nikon version to the market.

Never fear, I thought... PW MUST have tested the heck out of these things, and made ABSOLUTELY sure that there were NO problems whatsoever, since it took them so long to finally release the Nikon version, right? Uh, no.

Two of my units exhibit very strange behavior... they will not fire a flash when a remote signal comes in! If you hit the 'test' button on the unit itself, THAT flash alone will fire. The other unit will blink red, to indicate it received the signal, but the flash on the other will not fire. Same thing if I press the other one's button. That one's flash will fire, but not the first one. I use one of my old MultiMaxes to send a signal, and both indicators blink red, but no flash.

Frustrating is an understatement. Couple the above issues with the fact that one of the two also only powers up on 'C2', and it's even worse. I thought that one was completely DOA, and only while messing with them and trying to get them to work did I happen to figure out that C2 does actually power the thing on.

I've hooked them up to my PC, and updated the firmware, reset factory defaults, etc... no change.

The others' stellar reviews aside, I would be VERY wary before buying a set of these. SO far they're very expensive little paperweights, and I'm waiting for a response from PW's support department... the autoresponder e-mail said "We are experiencing an unusually high volume of support requests, so your response may be delayed...." Hmmm, I wonder why that might be. : /
