PocketWizard Releases New Firmware for Radio Flash Trigger

PocketWizard  ControlTL MiniTT1 Radio Flash Trigger

PocketWizard has released Firmware Version 5.0 for the MiniTT1 Transmitter and FlexTT5 Transceiver. The company said the new firmware adds several new features, many performance improvements and new camera and flash compatibility.

Among the newest key features are Rear Curtain Sync and Pre-Flash Boost. PocketWizard’s rear curtain sync allows the photographer to set the shutter speed at which rear curtain sync automatically engages while optimizing the timing of rear curtain sync to fire at the absolute end of the shutter opening.

Pre-Flash Boost provides enhanced E-TTL performance when using flash diffusers, doing bounce flash, or at ranges just beyond the normal E-TTL capabilities. By increasing the pre-flash power, PocketWizard has offset the loss of light in these challenging E-TTL situations.
