|ControlTL™ PocketWizard's 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/-iTTL systems as well as Manual Power Control. ControlTL firmware is configurable and upgradeable for "future-proof" continuous improvement. |
|Dedicated CLS/iTTL TriggeringLocking your MiniTTI Transmitter into the hot shoe of a Nikon DSLR camera and mounting CLS/iTTL flashes onto FlexTT5 Transceivers gives you full autoflash 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, on-camera flash or Nikon master unit for even more flexibility ||High Speed Sync (Auto FP)The MiniTT1 makes Nikon's FP/HSS mode a lot more functional with the freedom of radio. Now you can use your i-TTL speedlights in FP sync all the way to 1/8000 in the middle of the day in bright sun! ControlTL gains faster recycling times and more flashes per set of batteries when shooting in Nikon's FP / HSS Flash mode. Use this feature to shoot wide open in bright sun for amazing results. |
|Manual Power ControlAdjust the manual power settings of your remote Nikon Speedlights directly from a AC3 ZoneController, SB-800 or SB-900 flash mounted on your on-camera MiniTT1 or 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 simply through the user interface on the back of the SB-800 or SB-900 or with the dials of the AC3 ZoneController. 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™ AutomationWith ControlTL Firmware Update 3.0 (Nikon) and 6.0 (Canon), configuring HyperSync has now been automated. HyperSync Automation adjusts HyperSync timing in two separate places – on the transmitter and on the receiving ControlTL radio. The transmitting or on-camera MiniTT1 or FlexTT5 automatically adjusts HyperSync to compensate for changes made to shutter speed. Photographers can further refine HyperSync via the PocketWizard Utility. For more information on Configuring HyperSync Automation, visit the HyperSync section of the PocketWizard Wiki
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 MiniTT1 for Nikon 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 ZoneController sold separately.
Optimized Rear Curtain SyncPrecise 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/iTTL as speeds close to your maximum frames per second. Never before have you been able to shoot remote CLS/iTTL 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. |
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 MiniTT1'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 MiniTT1 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 Speedlight's it is designed for. Yes, you can now fire just about any hot shoe flash including Vivitar, Canon, etc., in manual mode only and not TTL mode.
Low-Profile DesignThe MiniTT1 Transmitter is the smallest PocketWizard ever, utilizing an internal antenna and common coin-cell battery. At just 2.3oz (65 grams) you barely realize it's on the camera.
Power SaverThe MiniTT1 Transmitter will go to sleep 10 seconds after your camera does to conserve energy. Just touch the shutter button half way to wake both the camera and the MiniTT1. It works on the supplied CR2450 coin cell battery (or optional CR2354 for in the field options) that provide hundreds of hours of battery life.
