PocketWizard FlexTT5

Ahead of CES last week, PocketWizard finally launched the MiniTT1 and FlexTT5 for Nikon DSLRs.  I’ve gotten a couple of emails asking about these, so yes, they should start shipping any day now. I got to play around with them a little at a pre-CES event and I can assure you they are working well with Nikon DSLRs.

Keep tabs on the stock updates at B&H (MiniTT1 and FlexTT5).
