D810 & pocket wizards

Looking at picking up pocket wizards as my radio transmitters are not great outdoors. Is there a model that is specific to D810 Or best for D810.....I have seen a lot of issues with firmware for these with d810 . Also use a pair of SB-800's if that matters...

Thanks for any and all input.

I have been using PW Flextt5 with my D810 to trigger my SB800 and 700. Works great. I also use the same to trigger my AB stuido lights.

Re: D810 & pocket wizards

I got a set of 3 TTL PW's and FlexTT5 and AC3 some years back.   Used them with D700, D800e and D810.   I did have to make firmware updates to cover new models that come out since the PW's, but that's been easy and painless.

Their range is excellent.

Did you mean to say Optical/Infrared transmitters?

I am using my D810 and the Plus 3  and Plus X series and they work flawlessly. I have tested them to 300 feet and they work fine.
