PocketWizard has added a budget model to its camera/flash radio trigger line: the PlusX 'auto-sensing' transceiver, that automatically switches between transmit and receive as needed. The PlusX offers the ability to trigger cameras and flashes over 10 radio channels. It features a side-profile design, backlit display, an internal antenna, and a dual-function LED indicating connection status plus battery life. PocketWizard PlusX will be available towards the end of March at a suggested retail price of $99. There is currently no information about the European price and availability.
PocketWizard has launched its latest camera/flash radio trigger: the PocketWizard Plus III transceiver. The Plus III is a big step forward from the Plus II, offering the ability to trigger four groups of cameras and flashes over 32 radio channels. It also offers faster continuous shooting, triggering at up to 14.5 fps and offers the ability to communicate via a repeater radio transmitter, to extend the system's range. It also gains the ability to half-press, rather than just firing the shutter on remote cameras. The biggest change, though, is the Plus III's back-lit LCD panel, making it easier to use than its predecessor.
