PocketWizard® Photo Products Announces ControlTL® Firmware Update

New features and free upgrades available now for MiniTT1® and FlexTT5® radios,
both Canon and Nikon versions

So. Burlington, VT – August 6, 2012 – LPA Design, manufacturers of PocketWizard Photo Products, the world leader in wireless control of cameras, flash lighting and light meters, announces today a new update to its ControlTL firmware for both Nikon and Canon versions of its MiniTT1 and FlexTT5 radios. Available now, firmware version 3.150 for Nikon and 6.150 for Canon include several new features and updates including compatibility with more cameras and flash units, support for the Sekonic RT-32CTL module, and a new optimized rear curtain sync utility control. Any current owner of the ControlTL system can easily install these new features via USB connection and update for free using the PocketWizard Utility.

New firmware features include compatibility with the Nikon D4, D800 and D800E digital cameras and Nikon SB-910 Speedlight as well as compatibility with the Canon 600 EX-RT Speedlite and ST-E3-RT Speedlite Transmitter. Compatibility for the Canon 5D Mark III is not available at this time but firmware for this camera should be available in the near future.

“This latest release of ControlTL firmware further strengthens PocketWizard’s compatibility with Nikon and Canon brand digital cameras and flashes,” said Dave Schmidt, Vice President of Marketing at LPA Design, the company that manufacturers PocketWizard Photo Products. “Providing photographers with frequent important upgrades such as this is a very high priority for us because it allows owners of PocketWizard radios to stay current as new cameras and flash units are introduced.”

This update enables PocketWizard’s MiniTT1 and FlexTT5 radios to work with Sekonic RT-32CTL equipped light meters and trigger compatible flashes in ControlTL mode. This allows photographers with an AC3 ZoneController on their transmitting MiniTT1or FlexTT5 to set remote flash power levels on their Speedlights or other ControlTL flashes, and then meter those remote flashes using their compatible Sekonic light meter, all wirelessly within the ControlTL system.

    What about an update on FlexTT5 and MiniTT1 for Canon’s new flagship 1DX camera?
    I’m very frustrated about not being able to use my remotes with this new camera
