The PocketWizard Plus III Transceiver is the most reliable, feature-packed, easy-to-use solution for remote flash and camera triggering available. The Plus III Transceiver features an impressive 32 channels. Whether you're a wedding or sports shooter or working in a busy studio, finding a clear channel is never a problem. Selective Quad-Zone Triggering, a feature once reserved for elite photographers, adds four zones enabling photographers to remotely trigger flash and or cameras in groups or individually. For photographers being asked to do more for less, this added flexibility is a huge competitive advantage.
Whether new to remote triggering of camera's and flashes or a top professional pushing gear to the limits, the Plus III's reliability, simplicity and performance make it the perfect tool for the job. The Plus III is the new standard of excellence.
I use this (& other Plus 3's)to trigger strobes that I have had in inventory for years. I have two Nikon strobes that are close to 20 years old & a couple of studio strobes about that same age that work perfectly with these products. I am currently doing environmental portraits & combining the studio & Nikon strobes (flashes) & getting great results.
Finally bought a few Plus X a little while back for my two cameras and two packs (I sometimes shoot with two of each). Loved having them. Have another set of mono lights I use for portraits at another location. Bought these to use and better control the mono lights (hard getting to the hair light so the III should work well for that).
it is just perfect, light and small
I purchased one plus lll and my intent was to use them with my TT5/TT1. I contacted PocketWizard and they were so Helpful and they practically held my hand walking me through the set-up. I am able to shoot on the go using the TTL settings or i can take my time in manual and shoot all day with the same settings by switching between configuration 1 & 2. I also have the option of 3 Transceivers TT5 & Plus lll and while shooting with my TT1 which is the best part of it all. The folks at PocketWizard are the best and I love the fact that you can interchange your units and you dont have to sell your old units.... I love it.
These work great for both studio and on location multiple light setups. My only gripe is for this price the fact that the hot shoe bracket is brittle plastic is a bit of a let down. These don't seem like they would withstand much of an impact if something should happen, as we all know can with on location environments and guests/clients who have had a little too much to drink. I Would have expected a more rubberized exterior and metal hot shoe bracket.
I shoot often in studio with a photography group and usually have several photographers all shooting at several stations setups. The multi channels on the PocketWizard III ensures that I can find a channel to shoot on without interference from other photographers. The button layout is easy to understand and the LED readout is bright enough to read without my reading glasses.
There isn't anything bad to say about this device. It works as advertised and a fantastic addition to my gear bag!
I believe this to be the best Pocket Wizard unit that they make. It is affordable with great features. I use it mainly to control my Profoto lights with my Nikon D7000, but also to control My D700 with my D7000 and use it with my Sekonic 758Cine.
Choosing plus iii for the additional radio channels for just in case situation that all the original channels are occupied in a large event. But it is an unheard situation at least to my own knowledge. I have two plus iii and will consider to add another two plus x to my setup.
