    It’s about time! Hasn’t it been about two years since these came out for Canon digital SLRs?

    I’ve been using the Pocket Wizard MiniTT1 and FlexTT5 for several months now as a beta tester, and I have to say that I haven’t had any real issues with them. I’ve heard stories from other photographers of inconsistencies, but I’m going to assume those relate to early test models and firmware. In the time that I’ve shot with them I’ve had no problems, and made a few discoveries that make them even more useful for the work that I do.

    I’ve used them in iTTL mode (mostly to manually adjust flashes remotely, I hate TTL) with no issues. I do need to say that I have very little experience using them with actual TTL flash, it’s just not something I do. I’m sure it works well, I just find it easier to set everything manually the way I want it. One great benefit of using them in TTL mode is the modeling light feature is greatly improved. It’s just as easy to remotely trigger it with the DOF button, and it’s a lot brighter using the MiniTT1/FlexTT5 set.

    I spent a bunch of time playing around with them in AutoFP high speed sync mode, and it works great, no problem shooting with them at 1/1000th I haven’t played around with the feature to light action on a bright sunny day yet, but stay tuned, I’ll get to it sometime soon when it’s actually sunny out here in the NW.

    I also played around a bunch with the Hypersync offset feature, using both FlexTT5 receivers and MultiMAX receivers. It works well, my only criticism would be that I don’t think the offset goes quite far enough. But then I like to push things beyond what most people do…

    I definitely won’t be getting rid of my Pocket Wizard MultiMAX units, they still have a lot of features that I regularly use, however the MiniTT1 and FlexTT5′s have made a great addition to my Pocket Wizard toolbox. If you’ve been waiting several years as I have for the Nikon version of these things get out there and purchase a set, you won’t be disappointed.

    I created a short blog post about my latest shoot with the MiniTT1 and MultiMAX’s, you can see it at http://tinyurl.com/24htgfc

    Thanks for the comment, Ian. You definitely push flash harder than most photographers so it’s good to hear they’re working well for you. Thanks for including the link to your PocketWizard MiniTT1 and Multimax blog post, too!

    hi ,
    i used PocketWizard MiniTT1 and FlexTT5 yesterday in the shooting the flash was working but before the photo is taken , i think it speed was faster than the camera , so i want to ask this pocket should i use it with special kind of camera or there is some option do i have to choose becouse it was faster than the camera and the photo was very dark.
    by the way i used it with 70 – 200 mm nikon and it was faster and it doesnot wrork
    but when i used it with 24-70 mm nikon it was working perfectly and the 14-24 mm nikon it was also good so i want to ask is the problem in my camera the 70-200 and the 105mm micro nikon becouse it wasnt working or do i have to change somthing in the pocket ?

    the options i used in the70-200 and the 105mm micro nikon , was manaul and the shutter speed was 100 and the apture number 2.8 , the flshes were on TTL and it was not working ,,
    so is it something i chose ?

    the camera type was D3S nikon
