5.0 out of 5 stars LOVE IT!!!from SU-800 to PocketWizard believer, May 1, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: PocketWizard Plus III Transceiver Black (Electronics)
II had gone the cheap way many times before and using different triggers for my flash (Nikon SB-910 and strobes) but something always went wrong. I am mostly shoot on location, weddings, engagements, fashion shoots, outside portraits...I shoot Nikon so a while back I decided to cough up about $300. for their TTL trigger (Nikon SU-800) which is great for when your indoors or away from water type location(Such as lakes or the Ocean) or right next to the flash but in my case it would fail constantly and would make me miss shots, I couldn’t walk away from it too far or it would not pick up my signal so I decided it was time to give up on TTL and worry more about my flash firing and of course learning the ways of the Manual flash. I finally gave in and decided to buy 3 of these pocket wizards and learn to use my Manual mode on my Flashes =). Let me just say that the biggest mistake I ever did was not going with pocket wizard in the 1st place. I have use them for about 3 months now and haven’t missed a shot! I have never seen it not fire a flash. I command it to fire and it fires, unless my flash is dead or out of recycle time it will fire and even then it tries to fire a flash lol =). When working with strobes I haven’t seen it miss one yet. Manual mode is AWESOME!!! I have waayyy more control now and my Photography has moved up a level. It took some time to sit there and learn my manual setting on my flash but after you get it down, you’ll never rely on TTL again. I can now walk as far as my heart desires and point my Camera and it will fire the flash =) I’ve tested it near water and its flawless works every time. Yes I might be pricey but in the long run it will pay out. Don’t be like me and go waste money elsewhere just to realize that your missing those priceless shots, as for me I will be a pocket wizard costumer for as long as they keep building products like this one! Should have jumped in sooner.
