PocketWizard of Elmsford, New York has updated its MultiMAX transceiver for remotely triggering multiple flashes or strobes. It now features a new radio chipset which brings with it several enhancements, including:
â€¢ A USB Port for firmware updates
â€¢ Enhanced close range performance â€“ they work better when very close together
â€¢ FAST MODE, a welcome return to the feature set
â€¢ An improved user interface
â€¢ Remote pre-release control â€“ turn on or off pre-release remotely using the proper cables
The USB Port will be used for future firmware updates as needed. It requires a common Mini-B USB cable like those used with many digital cameras, PDAs, cell phones, MP3 players, etc. The cable is not included but is widely available. Firmware updates will be announced on PocketWizard.com. They will be available in both MAC and PC versions.
