Pocket Wizard TT1 + Plus III = Reduced sync speed?
Jan 8, 2013

Last night I paired a TT1 and a Plus III on a Nikon D300 firing two Elinchrom D-Lite 4's.  When I used this light/camera setup in the past, via sync cord, I was able to shoot at the max sync speed of the Nikon which is 1/250.

In the wireless setup I noticed all of the frames had a black line across the top which I assume is the shutter curtain left in the frame.  In fact, I can get the black line to go away when I reduce the camera shutter to 1/200.  Is there a reason I can't sync at 1/250?
