About PocketWizard MiniTT1

The MiniTT1 Transmitter is easy to use; just slide in place and begin to shoot. The new PocketWizard ControlTL® System interprets the complex CLS / i-TTL data being sent through the camera's hot shoe and digitally transmits it in a reliable radio signal. Change the exposure compensation dial on the camera, and those commands pass seamlessly through the system to your remote flash. Adjust your aperture or ISO and the system automatically corrects for those changes. ne or more PocketWizard FlexTT5® Transceivers connected to Nikon CLS / i-TTL flashes or any PocketWizard Receiver for triggering flash or remote cameras.

Adjust your aperture or ISO and the system automatically corrects for those changes.

Add the PocketWizard AC3 ZoneController to easily adjust up to three zones of light independently, in both i-TTL or manual. PocketWizard ControlTL radio communication allows you to shoot farther, faster, around corners, through walls even at high noon in bright daylight. Now you can deploy a wireless i-TTL flash system wherever you want, without infrared limitations, in seconds. Take advantage of PocketWizard's HyperSync Technology that allows 1/500th of a second camera sync or more with many camera/strobe set-ups. HyperSync allows you to advance the timing of your flash trigger so that faster than X-sync speeds can be achieved.

Need more speed? Push your ControlTL system beyond 1/500th and go into High Speed Sync / FP mode automatically. With HSS Sync engaged in the camera menu, select any shutter speed you want with your Nikon i-TTL flashes, all the way up to 1/8000th of a second. With radio wireless, the possiblities of FP Sync become a lot more exciting.

Use the MiniTT1 with the PowerST4 Receiver, PowerMC2 Receiver, or AC9 AlienBees Adapter on a FlexTT5 and get remote power control with your Elinchrom RX or any Paul C. Buff flash.

Quality !!

These TT1's are just the ticket for on camera remotes !! Much smaller than the TT5's , but only function as transmitters. All work flawlessly on my nikon gear. An added bonus , you can still attach a flash to the top of these on camera if need be !! PW's are the only triggers I'll use !!

TT!, TT5, AC3 Usage with Nikon D2Xs and

As a Pro Photographer I find it strange that Wizard or any other Advertiser never stated that The TT1 , TT5 and AC3 will NOT work with the Nikon D2Xs and earlier DSLR cameras, there apparently also is a problem with some Canons. After contacting the company they stated they have no intention at this time to write a software patch to correct this problem as it would be too time consuming. I would not recommend this product to people with one of the earlier Nikon Flagship's.

Indispensable tool in my toolbox.

By

from Rochester, NY  -  Pro Photographer

The PW MiniTT1 is one of the main tools in my toolbox for my photography business. I currently have two of them along with the TT5's. During a mad dash to obtain a shot during a wedding I inadvertently slammed my s910 against the wall thus snapping the connector on the TT1. I want to thank my TT1 for taking the brunt of the hit which saved my SB910, but was sad for it's demise. At that point I was able to use another TT5 as a trigger and complete the job, but realized how important my TT1 is as my main trigger. I now have 3 TT1's and will never go out shooting without one.

Delighted!

from Mt Iron, MN  -  Semi-pro Photographer

Just getting back into lighting with monolights and for me the mini just revolutionized my photography. Updated software via my computer and only took 5 minutes to figure out how to use it. This is an awesome small tool!

Light weight compact design that works

By

from Las Vegas NV  -  Semi-pro Photographer

The one I bought is for the Canon system. 5D Mk II and Speedlite 580 EX II. When operated with just these two devices this item works flawlessly - however - when I introduced Canon's infrared remote trigger into the setup it would lock up the CAMERA in such a way that I had to disconnect the Pocket Wizard and cycle the camera power off and on to wake it up. Canon had never heard of this problem and so had no solution. Pocket Wizard said something to the effect that Canon firmware was not "pre-releasing" their camera and that was the reason for the problem. I'm not convinced that was really the problem however. I asked PW why the green LED on their unit continued to flash after I shut it off with the switch. Strange, they said, try restoring the PW to factory default using the included USB cable and PW software. Doing that seems to have fixed it. The green LED no longer flashes after I shut it off and the camera no longer locks up. It seems that somehow PW was actually locking up the camera. Both Canon and PW customer service were very helpful in figuring out this curious malfunction.

Reliability and Operation

By

from Saint Louis, MO  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

The miniTT1 on camera with FlexTT5 units works. It simply works. If you are having problems, go back to the basics. The best trick is to start with everything turned off, including your camera. Turn on the flash unit, then its FlexTT5, then the miniTT1, and finally the camera. Using the miniTT1, I just raise the antenna on the FlexTT5 units and never worry about aligning the antennae. I also recommend using the AC3 to control the power ratio, and especially when using your TTL mode.

Sleek Design

By

from Wisconsin  -  Semi-pro Photographer

AC3zone controller should be built in to unit. This is a well built good design. Definitely a bonus to have this streamlined device on camera as opposed to a larger flex transceiver. This system is a must for any serious photographer.

Wonderful! Cut the cord, use this (with a FlexTT5 of course). Simple to use. You will want more of these and strobes too.

Questions about this item:

wayne B  my d4 dose not have a pop up flash how many pocket wizards do i need to fire 2 remote speed lights ?
ENRICO A  U can turn the other speedlight mode to slave, although u wont able to benefit from the TTL when connected to pw.
Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
RAY M  i was familiar with Nikon's CLS system but was sometimes limited to its use because of certain shooting conditions. Having these new radios removed those limitations while still being able to use the i-TTL features of this trigger.
Ron K  So as of today will this work with a D-7100 & a SB-700 flash. manual & TTL????
ROLAND H  Yes I did purchase the TT1 but had to return it as it was nor compatible with a Nikon D2Sx, and there was no plans for that happening. Sorry I wasn't of greater help. You might try the Pocket Wizard web site for their recommendation for your camera.
