PocketWizard Rolls Out AC3 ZoneController

PocketWizard AC3 ZoneController

The new PocketWizard AC3 ZoneController is a multiple flash controller that offers independent control over three lighting zones. The device piggybacks to the on-camera Mini TT1 Transmitter or Flex TT5 Transceiver to adjust each zone to ±3EV in 1/3EV steps. It can also be switched to manual, TTL auto or turned off.

When matched with the new Power ST5, the AC3 ZoneController also allows control of Elinchrom RX heads from the camera position.

Key Features:

• Three independent zones of flash control.
• 6-stops of flash control in 1/3-stop increments.
• Works in PowerTracking E-TTL II or Manual mode.
• Turn zones On & Off remotely.
• Works with Canon Speedlites, Elinchrom RX Alien Bees flash.

The PocketWizard AC3 ZoneController is available from the end of this month at $70. The AC3 works with Canon Speedlites and Elinchrom RX Alien Bees flash, with the Nikon version coming soon.
