Am I missing something - can't get my Pocketwizard to fire flash with RX10
6 months ago

Just received my hot shoe adapter and a Metz 52 AF-1 fash and all seems to work well. I thought I would try my Pocketwzard FLEX TT5 and the receiver that fits in my Paul Buff Einstein unit. When I hit the test button on the TT5 the flash fires but pressing the shutter on the RX10 does nothing to trigger the Einstein. I had been using the AC3 adapter for Nikon and took that off the TT5, and if I am not mistaken the TT5 on its own should trigger any flash. The Pocketwizard fits on the camera hot shoe (I guess the adapter is only for the older Sony/Minolta cameras which must have a different fitting hot shoe) so I am wondering if there is another adapter I need.  I probably need to contact Pocketwizard but maybe not if any of you have had experience using a Pocketwizard system with the RX10.
