Press Release:

New PocketWizard AC3 Zone Controller

For many months, customers have been asking when this unit will arrive, and now we can tell you that shipping will begin at the end of June!

The AC3 ZoneController is the gem of the Control TL product line. Add it to your on-camera Mini TT1 Transmitter or Flex TT5 Transceiver and you instantly have three zones of flash control. Whether working in E-TTL or manual mode, you now have control over all your flashguns directly from the camera’s position. Put your flashguns wherever you want without worrying about having to access them during a shoot. With the AC3 ZoneController, you are in total control of your flash.

Three clearly labeled dials allow you to increase or decrease power to three zones of flash in 1/3-stop increments, with a range of up to six stops. Three switches allow you to change zones between Manual, Auto (Power Tracking E-TTL II) or OFF. Best of all, the design is simple with an intuitive interface.

When matched with the new Power ST5, you can also control Elinchrom RX heads from the camera position.

Key Features:

  • Three independent zones of flash control.
  • 6-stops of flash control in 1/3-stop increments.
  • Works in PowerTracking E-TTL II or Manual mode.
  • Turn zones On & Off remotely.
  • Works with Canon Speedlites, Elinchrom RX Alien Bees flash. Nikon coming soon.
  • Put your flashes where you want, without worrying about accessing them during a shoot.

And the good news is the price £59.99 inc VAT.
