PocketWizard AC9 Features

  • ControlTL: PocketWizard's new firmware platform taps into the full potential of your camera and flash system enabling an entirely new level of remote flash capability through the proven radio communications. ControlTL firmware is configurable and upgradeable for future-proof continuous improvement
  • Manual Power Control: When the AC9 is used with a FlexTT5 Transceiver and paired with either an on-camera MiniTT1 or FlexTT5, you can adjust the power settings of your AlienBees/White Lightning flashes directly from the camera's position
  • ZoneControl: Use either the AC3 ZoneController or a MultiMAX radio to control up to three zones of light with as many lights in each zone as you want. Use the A-B-C zone switch on the AC9-paired FlexTT5 to assign the zone
  • PowerTracking: In Auto Mode, change ISO, aperture, or FEC and the lights automatically adjust their compensating power setting with PocketWizard PowerTracking
  • HyperSync: HyperSync allows photographers to achieve faster X-sync speeds, all the way up to 1/8000 second, will full power flash. Now you can cut the ambient light and use wide-open apertures, outdoors in bright sunlight
  • Low-Profile Design: The AC9 is tiny and simply slides onto the FlexTT5 hot shoe and plugs into the remote socket on the flash using the supplied cord
  • No batteries Required: The AC9 gets its power from the paired FlexTT5
