PocketWizard FlexTT5 for Nikon
Are you a PocketWizard user? I am a PocketWizad user. I have investigated several different types of wireless triggers for when I purchased my first studio equipment. I currently use three PocketWizard Plus II and a MultiMax for more specific needs and time-lapse photography on my Canon G10.
I use Calumet Geneses 200 gear for my home studio. However, since my camera gear wasn’t set up with a PC link (Nikon D70s and Nikon SB600) I decided to go wireless. My choice is the PocketWizard Plus II. It was not the cheapest wireless system on the market, however it filled my needs, with the ability to expand and grow as my needs grew.
When I found out last year that PocketWizard released the Flex TT5, Flex TT5 Mini for Canon equipment, I couldn’t wait for the release of the Flex TT5 for Nikon. However, PocketWizard ran into several issues with the Flex TT5 for Canon. These issues delayed the development of the Nikon gear until the worked all the kinks out of the Canon Flex TT5.
Now it looks like they have figured it out and hopefully they have worked all the bugs out, and corrected them for the release of the Flex TT5 for Nikon.
Mark Wallace of Mark Wallace Photography and SanpFactory has put of a short video on his test of the Flex TT5 for Nikon at WPPI last week. Mark Wallace is a Canon shooter, but he is using Nikon equipment for this test.
After talking to a few local photo stores the speculated release date will be some time in April.
