Re: Z7 & Pocketwizards

I have used the Z7 with Pocket Wizard III's and it works fine. I do not have PW IVs but I would have thought they would be able to do the same.

You need to connect the Pocket Wizard to the accessory terminal at the bottom of the left hand side of camera under the rubber cover.

The cable I use is an N-MCDC2-ACC-1 which is a 3.5mm stereo plug at the PW end and an MC-DC2 connector for the camera end.

If you want to trigger flashes as well as remotely triggering the camera then the PW's connected to the flashes need to be set to a channel one above the remote and camera PW's.

Remote trigger channel 22, TX mode - Triggers the camera
Camera trigger channel 22, TXRX mode - controls the camera and triggers the flash
Flash trigger channel 23, RX mode - Fires the flash
