Technical Details


Product Description

Style: Mini TT1 & Flex TT5 Kit

The MiniTT1 transmitter is a low-profile unit that slides directly into the camera's hot shoe. It takes the complex TTL flash data sent through the camera's hot shoe contacts and transmits it in a secure, unique PocketWizard radio signal. Flash units must be mounted on a FlexTT5 transceiver for TTL operation or any PocketWizard unit for manual operation. Shoot FP sync up to 1/8000 sec. with Nikon Speedlites or up to 1/500 sec. and faster with full-power manual flash units using exclusive PocketWizard HyperSync. The unique ControlTL system enables adjustable Pre-Flash Boost for better autoflash shooting and remote autoflash at up to 7 fps. As all communication takes place through the dedicated hot shoes, there is no need for cables, brackets, Velcro or tape to use them. The FlexTT5 transceiver shares the MiniTT1 transmitter's 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. Both units feature a two-position channel selector that is factory programmed to the PocketWizard classic channel one and two. Using PocketWizard Utility software, available free on www.PocketWizard.com, and the USB port, you can program either channel to any of the PocketWizard system's 32 Standard or 20 ControlTL digitally encoded channels and zones. A special Learning Mode enables simple, in-the-field programming of all channels. The MiniTT1 transmitter and FlexTT5 transceiver represent a new era of PocketWizard software technology. Simply connect one of the units to a computer and click a button and it automatically updates its firmware. This allows for virtually unlimited system upgrades for new functionality and makes these PocketWizard radios capable of meeting any future challenge.

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.

------

Overview

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. : /
