Pocket Wizard Updates Firmware for FlexTT5, MiniTT1 Flash Triggers

Pocket Wizard MiniTT1 on Canon

Pocket Wizard has updated the firmware for the FlexTT5 and MiniTT1 flash triggers for Canon DSLRs. Firmware v4.250 adds a number of enhancements:

• Boosts the High Speed Sync feature of Canon Speedlights

• Provides energy savings for faster recycling, more shots per battery while enabling greater working distances.

• 5D Mark II now compatible with on-camera flash with ControlTL system.

The new firmware also allows photographers to disable HyperSync mode in the MiniTT1 and FlexTT5, allowing use of HSS for shutter speeds down to 1/320 second. This is especially useful for the Canon 5D and 5D MK II whose shutter mechanisms can’t take full advantage of the HyperSync mode.
