PocketWizard’s MultiMAX Transceiver contains many of the features found in the PocketWizard Plus II including advanced wireless transceiver technology, multi-channel switching, sustained 12 frames-per-second high-speed triggering, and a range of up to 1600’ between transceivers. Add to this mix the ability to isolate individual or groups of lights for multiple and/or selective lighting sequences aided by a choice of thirty-two 16-bit, digitally coded channels (up from four in the PocketWizard Plus II). Now the fun begins. For time-lapse imaging, MultiMAX’s trigger time control software includes an Intervalometer for recording timed sequences of up to 10,000 exposures over a time period of 100 hours. Multi-pop shooting - up to 10,000 exposures. Rear-curtain sync mode will capture ambient streaks of light at slow shutter speeds even for cameras that do not have this feature. Each PocketWizard MultiMAX features an easy-to-read, backlit LCD display for fast settings confirmation under any lighting condition. The SpeedCycler mode enables sequential triggering of up to 4 individual or sets of cameras or light sources for high speed sequential image capture from multiple camera positions as a method of further ‘reducing’ recycling times between exposures. The PocketWizard MultiMAX is compact, with a short, unobtrusive, rubberized antenna. The total height of the transceiver and antenna is less than 6.5”, and it weighs in at 6oz including the batteries. The backlit keypad is also rubberized, and has a lock button that secures your pre-established settings when you’re working fast and furious. To ensure a secure fit to your camera or bracket, all PocketWizards feature sturdy, locking rings for hot shoes. Power is supplied by 2 AA batteries, which are good for about 60 hours of playtime. An optional AC adapter allows for continuous, unlimited shoot time.

other than the back yard. If you use slave flash these are a must, these or the Plus II can't find anything
Still need to read the manual and figure out the full capability. Manual straight to the point. Needs to be a guide for useful situation stepping through the menus. The menu is hard to navigate and I'm scared I'll change something I can't change back.
Works 100% of the time so far though. I trigger to a receiver unit on a Profoto B2 battery pack and 2 radio Profoto compacts.
The Multimax is a little heavier than a Plus II, it feels more solid, though the hotshoe and locking ring are still the plastic that i'm worried will snap if twisted too hard. If I were to make a single change to the entire line of Pocketwizards, a metal shoe and locking ring would be it.
The features are great, and even slightly intuitive. Keep the manual on this one until you're familiar with all the options and control features. You can use it straight out of the box, but then you might as well get a Plus II if you don't need the extra options.
The two most notable features-rear curtain sync and intervalometer. Rear curtain sync is not available to canon camera when using off camera flash. The Multimax enables this feature.
along with a motor drive cable (get it at flash blackandwhitestripedafricananimaldotcom for a fraction of the cost of the 'official' cable) you can use the Multimax as an intervalometer-schedule your camera to take a shot at a pre-determined interval, for stop motion photography and such. Considering the Canon TC80N3 remote costs 1/2 as much as the Multimax *without* the remote triggering and transceiver abilities, you're getting quite a bit for your money.
You really only need one multimax, unless you have a desperate need to use zones that you can turn on and off from your camera. Make the rest of your transceivers Plus IIs and you'll be set.
While the new radiopoppers will give Pocketwizards a run for their money, you can't argue with the features of the multimax and its abilities. Highly recommended for Pros, and amateurs with deep pockets.
