PocketWizard Updates TTL Compatibility For All Current Canon and Nikon DSLRs
PocketWizard has announced the latest ControlTL firmware upgrade to its line of 'Control the Light' wireless flash transceivers and receivers, updating the MiniTT1 Transmitter and FlexTT5 transceiver and receiver units to work with all available Canon and Nikon DSLR systems. The company has also added resources to achieve a much faster turnaround on updates, as evidenced by new support for the Nikon D810, which was just announced in late June.
As part of PocketWizard's 'Control the Light' ControlTL system, the MiniTT1 transmitters and FlexTT5 receivers offer TTL 'through-the-lens' automatic exposure metering and reliable radio triggering of flashes and strobes individually or in groups without the need for line-of-sight. For Canon E-TTL II and Nikon CLS / i-TTL flashes, the MiniTT1 transmitter will trigger remote speedlights and studio flashes that have been secured to the FlexTT5 receivers at up to 800 feet for TTL operation or 1200 feet without. The ControlTL systems are also compatible with other radio solutions in the PocketWizard lines.
For Canon users, version 6.7 now extends TTL coverage to the Canon EOS 1D X as well as the EOS 6D, 70D, SL1 and the T5i/T4i/T5 cameras. For Nikon, firmware version 3.7 updates support for the flagship Nikon D4S, the Nikon Df, D810, D610, D7100, D5300, D5200 and D3300. The firmware updates and free PocketWizard Utility for updating the units via USB are available at www.pocketwizard.com/support/downloads/

So. Burlington, VT – August 5, 2014 – LPA Design, manufacturers of PocketWizard Photo Products, the world leader in wireless control of cameras, flash lighting and flash power control with Sekonic light meters, announces today a new update to its ControlTL firmware for both Nikon and Canon versions of its MiniTT1 and FlexTT5 radios. Firmware version 3.700 for Nikon includes compatibility with the recently released D810, D610, D4S and other Nikon cameras. Additionally, firmware version 6.700 for Canon now provides TTL compatibility with the Canon 1D X, 6D and T4i as well as other recently released Canon cameras. See the compatibility list below. Any current owner of the ControlTL system can easily install this version via USB and update for free using the PocketWizard Utility. PocketWizard Utility version 1.54 or later is required before installing this update.
"Not only are we now compatible with all current Canon and Nikon DSLRs, we've added resources to our firmware department allowing us to have a significant breakthrough in firmware development. We can react much more quickly to newer cameras entering the market," said Heather Ambrose, Marketing Director at LPA Design, the company that manufacturers PocketWizard Photo Products. "We received a Nikon D810 two weeks ago and our firmware engineers got right on it. A focused look under the hood and they found that the camera behaved similar to the D4S. After a few iterations of firmware, combined with comprehensive testing, it was determined that the D810 could be added to the current firmware release. This is by far the fastest turn around we've been able to achieve, and we hope to keep this momentum going."
