From LPA Design:
 
More timing features, same great reliability, all at a lower price.
 
So. Burlington, VT – July 13, 2017 – LPA Design, manufacturers of PocketWizard Photo Products, the global leader in reliable wireless control of cameras, flash lighting and light meters, announces the MultiMAX II and the return of unique timing features that only PocketWizard technology provides. Whether you are a sports, wildlife or wedding photographer, you will be happy to learn that the most powerfully-featured wireless radio on the planet, the PocketWizard MultiMAX, is back and fully compatible with all other PocketWizard radios.
 
Building on the legendary MultiMAX, the MultiMAX II takes its place as the most versatile, reliable and predictably compatible radio on the market. For the past 16 years, the MultiMAX has helped capture amazing images, many of which have landed on magazine covers throughout the world. MultiMAX Transceivers continue to be found in frequency crowded environments triggering arena flashes or remote cameras behind soccer goals, hockey nets, basketball nets, horse jumps, bull chutes, and the finish line of major International Track and Field events.
 
After a brief hiatus, the MultiMAX II returns with new features including 20 ControlTL channels, Manual Power Control and an improved blue backlit LCD which provides better contrast for improved viewing in dimly lit studios or on-site locations. The key pad is brighter too, allowing photographers to easily change settings on the fly. Its 344 MHz frequency sets it apart from 2.4 GHz noise in crowded venues.
 
“The MultiMAX II continues to provide incredible features that professional photographers have come to rely on. It has a whole suite of built-in tools designed for the demanding sports shooter like Patterns, programmable delays, and a settable contact time. The MultiMAX II is also Custom ID ready. Photographers can create incredible depth of field or stroboscopic effects with Multi-pop, give rear curtain sync to any camera, and even synchronize multiple cameras together, states Patrick Clow, Technical Support and Customer Service Manager.
 
The MultiMAX II has a total of 52 channels: 32 Standard Channels and 20 ControlTL Channels. Photographers can creatively control groups of lights or cameras allowing them to work in crowded venues or with multiple flash set-ups. And now with Power Control, photographers can remotely adjust the manual power settings of ControlTL compatible radios and flashes in up to three zones with as many flashes in each group as you want.
 
“Professional photographers have clamored for years to bring back the MultiMAX. We listened and we responded by making a great radio even better and offering it at a lower price. The MultiMAX II Transceiver is and remains the only radio on the market that performs special PocketWizard features including Infinite Intervalometer, SpeedCycler and Ultra Long Range. It is the most reliable Transceiver on the market for capturing life’s most amazing moments, states Karen Marshall, CEO of LPA Design.
 
The MultiMAX II will be available at retail and on line in the US and Canada starting July 17, 2017. The retail price will be $229.00 USD in the US and $309.00 CAD in Canada.

So. Burlington, VT – May 30, 2017 – LPA Design, manufacturers of PocketWizard Photo Products, the global leader in reliable wireless control of cameras, flash lighting and light meters, announces the new FlexTT6 Transceiver for Canon – the latest in PocketWizard’s flagship TTL radios. With new under-the-hood technology, it is compatible with the Canon 5D Mark IV, 1D X Mark II, 80D, 77D, T7i and T6 cameras, along with Canon’s 600 EX II-RT and 430 EX III-RT flashes. It is legacy compatible with more than 20 additional Canon cameras and flashes. The FlexTT6 addresses faster camera sensor speeds and is future-proof for next generation camera releases. The new FlexTT6 includes all the features and reliability as the FlexTT5, such as TTL, HSS and PocketWizard’s patented HyperSync technology.
 
“Owners of newer Canon cameras can now access the remarkable wireless TTL technology pioneered and patented by PocketWizard,” comments Karen Marshall, CEO of LPA Design. “Our engineering team was able to conquer the challenges presented by faster camera sensors with this hardware solution.”
 
The FlexTT6 is forward, backward and cross-compatible with the PocketWizard family of wireless radios. This includes compatibility with the FlexTT5 as a receiving radio, as well as the entire line of Plus radios, the MultiMAX, MiniTT1, AC3 ZoneController and Control TL receivers.
 
“We remain focused on the essential value and reliability of the PocketWizard family of wireless gear for our photographers. Add the FlexTT6 to your gear bag, get your flash off your camera and you are ready to shoot with new and older Canon cameras supported by your PocketWizard wireless radios”, said Marshall. “Our customers also tell us that in an increasingly overcrowded 2.4 GHz smart device world that our unique 344 MHz (FCC) and 433 MHz (CE) radios cut through the wireless clutter delivering reliability every shot,” said Patrick Clow, Manager of Customer and Technical Support.
 
Patented HyperSync technology allows photographers to shoot at higher sync speeds, over power the sun, stop action, and control both ambient light and flash at the same time. HSS allows for shooting wide open apertures (up to 1/8000th) in bright sun with speedlites for amazing lighting effects.
 
“At PocketWizard we’re here for one reason, to create and support products that allow you to take your best image every time,” added Clow.
 
The new FlexTT6 for Canon will be available at retail and on line in the US and Canada starting June 8, 2017.
 
B&H has the PocketWizard FlexTT6 for Canon available for preorder.

From PocketWizard:
 
Intro: Beta Firmware Version 3.818 addresses compatibility with newer Nikon gear introduced since the launch of ControlTL Firmware version 3.800, and includes some minor improvements.
 
New Key Feature:
 
The following Nikon gear is now supported in this beta firmware release:
 
  • Nikon D5
  • Nikon D500
  • Nikon D7200
  • Nikon D5500
  • Nikon SB-5000 (remote only – see operational consideration)
These cameras will work in the ControlTL system with normal operational considerations. Read more about the general Nikon Operational Considerations on the PocketWizard Wiki.
 
SB-5000 Operational Consideration: The Nikon SB-5000 should only be used as a remote Speedlight on a FlexTT5 (set to TTL, not REMOTE per normal ControlTL operation). We do not recommend using the SB-5000 as a MASTER Speedlight on your camera’s ControlTL radio at this time. It might work as a MASTER on select cameras, but not others. If you use it as MASTER in your setup and it only emits a tiny burst of light at trigger time, it is not compatible. We hope to address this consideration in a future firmware release.
 
D7200/D5500 Operational Consideration: Rear curtain sync mode with these cameras only works with remote flash, not with on camera flash.
 
Other Improvements:
 
  • Nikon FlexTT5 radios can now have Custom IDs installed, regardless of firmware version. Visit this page for more information:
  • As of this date, the latest camera firmware from Nikon has been tested*, including:
    • D5 C:1.10
    • D4S C:1.31
    • D500 C:1.02
    • D7200 C:1.01
    • D5500 C:1.01
    • And others like the Df, D810, D750 etc.
  • Fixed a minor issue regarding the Sekonic RT32-CTL module. You can now use the meter to trigger a remote Speedlight on a FlexTT5 without first having to trigger the remote from a camera.
* Please make sure to update your camera to the latest firmware.
 
To install PocketWizard ControlTL MiniTT1 / FlexTT5 Nikon Beta Firmware v.3.818, you must enable Beta Firmware access.

New Auto-Sensing Transceiver allows photographers to combine on-camera TTL flash with remote manual flash
 
So. Burlington, VT (March 7, 2016 )– LPA Design, manufacturers of PocketWizard Photo Products, the world leader in reliable wireless control of cameras, flash lighting and light meters, announces that the new PocketWizard Plus IV Transceivers first announced last fall, are now shipping to retailers in the United States.
 
PocketWizard now offers the best of both worlds in one easy-to-use, reliable wireless trigger. The Plus IV Auto-Sensing Transceiver provides photographers with the benefit of on camera TTL flash combined with remote manual flash. When used as a transmitter, the top shoe provides on camera TTL compatibility with most Canon, Nikon, Panasonic, Fuji and Olympus cameras and flashes. When used as a receiver, the top shoe pairs with virtually any speedlight for easy mounting and manual power adjustment of a remote flash. Built on the reliability and simplicity of the PocketWizard PLUS legacy line of products and loaded with numerous features and functionality, the Plus IV Transceiver is the “go to” radio when a fast set-up is required.
 
“Serious photographers understand the benefits of controlling the light at the time of exposure, both in-studio and on location,” said Karen Marshall, CEO of LPA Design, the U.S.-based manufacturer and distributor of PocketWizard products. “I’m delighted that PocketWizard engineers have been able to add TTL pass–through, for use with on-camera flash, and a metal foot and applied it to our time-tested technology, offering our users even greater versatility.”
 
The Plus IV includes performance enhancing features such as Long Range and Repeater Modes to help photographers tackle the most challenging shooting environments, opening the door for never-attempted image ideas. All features, channels and zones can be easily set using the soft-touch keypad and are clearly displayed on the backlit LCD display.
 
The new Plus IV looks like a Plus III on its side, with the most requested features added in. However, the Plus IV is not a replacement for the Plus III, rather they’ve been designed to complement each other. For example, an ideal set-up might be a Plus IV for on-camera flash in TTL mode, another Plus IV with a speedlight mounted in manual mode and two Plus IIIs connected to studio lights. The Quad-Zone feature in both the Plus IV and the Plus III allows photographers to easily turn their remote flashes on or off directly from the camera, and either create different looks or work in different areas.
 
The versatile new PocketWizard Plus IV is compatible with all other PocketWizard radios and virtually every popular flash and professional digital SLR camera system. The standard ISO compatible hot shoe can accommodate almost any speedlight for simple manual triggering, including newer Sony models. It also communicates with all PocketWizard-enabled photo gear including select Profoto, Dynalite, Norman and Photogenic flash systems and Sekonic light meters.
 
The new PocketWizard Plus IV Transceiver is now available at Retailers in the United States at an MSRP of $153.00.
 
B&H has the PocketWizard Plus IV Transceivers available for preorder.

From PocketWizard:
 
New Key Features:
 
Compatibility with Mac OS X El Capitan (10.11.2):
 
Apple made significant structural changes in OS X El Capitan (10.11) compared to previous versions of the Mac operating system. As a result, PocketWizard Utility beta version 1.63 required significant work to integrate El Capitan’s differences.
 
Make sure you are using the latest iteration of El Capitan, OS X version 10.11.2. Previous OS X versions of El Capitan, 10.11.0 or 10.11.1, have only received minimal testing with this Utility and will not be tested further. Testing against OS X version 10.11.3, currently in developer and public beta, will commence soon. If you are using 10.11.3, we would appreciate any reports you may have about this Utility’s functionality in that OS.
 
Utility 1.63 remains reverse-compatible with the previous 5 versions of Mac OS X:
 
  • Yosemite (10.10)
  • Mavericks (10.9)
  • Mountain Lion (10.8)
  • Lion (10.7)
  • Snow Leopard (10.6)
If your Mac OS X version is Leopard (10.5) or earlier, or you are using a PowerPC-based system, try PocketWizard Utility version 1.54. It will not have the latest features of version 1.63, but should still work for most PocketWizard products with the exception of the Plus III and Plus IV.
 
Continued compatibility with Microsoft Windows:
 
Both this beta version 1.63, and the prior official Utility version 1.58, are fully compatible with modern Windows versions:
 
  • 10 - Version 1511
  • 8.1 – Version 6.3.9600
  • 7 – Version 6.1.7601 (Service Pack 1)
Other versions of the Microsoft OS, like 8 (prior to 8.1), 7 (no service pack), Vista, 2000 and XP were not tested for this release, but the Utility may still function. Operation in these operating systems is not officially supported.
 
Added support for the PocketWizard Plus IV:
 
This Utility will be ready to support the PocketWizard Plus IV when it launches (estimated Q1/2016).
 
Simplified and Improved Workflow:
 
Based on your feedback, we have incorporated many improvements to streamline the Utility especially around firmware updating:
 
  • Dramatically simplified firmware updating. Reduced and removed dialogue boxes and buttons to speed the process up, especially when “Advanced Mode” is unchecked
  • Clarified the notification system that reminds you when a firmware update is available
  • New radio firmware is automatically downloaded upon program install and launch if there’s an internet connection available. This speeds the firmware update process for multiple radios and allows for updating later when there may be no internet connection
  • Removed the “Apply Changes” confirmation dialogue. Now, when you click Apply Changes, your settings are immediately updated. Please wait for the radio to reconnect (see it reappear in the Utility) to allow the changes to be completely applied as well as visually verify the changes you just made
  • Reduced, removed, and clarified dialogue boxes in several places
  • Moved Save Profile, Load Profile, and Replicate to the advanced area. Tick the “Advanced Mode” checkbox in the lower left corner (by the blue gear) to reveal these features
Other Improvements:
 
  • Incorporated the latest security certificates for Mac and Windows operating systems
  • Improved offline operation for a smoother experience when an internet connection is not available. This is in addition to workflow improvements noted above
  • Added a delete feature to the Device Inventory. Device Inventory is located under the Settings Menu. Click the blue gear in the lower left corner to access it. When a radio is deleted from Device Inventory, the information is immediately and permanently deleted
  • Fixed a bug where sometimes the context help window would be empty on some computers
  • Fixed other minor display issues
For full details including installation instructions, please refer to the PocketWizard Beta Utility 1.63 Release Bulletin.

New Auto-Sensing Transceiver allows photographers to combine on-camera TTL flash with remote manual flash.
 
So. Burlington, VT – October 21, 2015 – LPA Design, manufacturers of PocketWizard Photo Products, the world leader in reliable wireless control of cameras, flash lighting and light meters, announces the new PocketWizard Plus IV Transceiver. The new Plus IV includes all the features and reliability of the Plus III and adds key new functionality. When used as a transmitter, its top shoe provides on-camera TTL compatibility with most Canon, Nikon and Panasonic cameras and flashes. And although testing is not complete, we are optimistic it will work with some Fuji, and Olympus gear. When used as a receiver, you can easily mount and trigger virtually any speedlight in the shoe, set to a manual power level.
 
“Photographers love the Plus III, but they’ve expressed their desire for a Plus III with a top shoe. So we designed one. We took it a step further and added TTL pass-through for an on-camera flash, and a metal foot. It’s like a Plus III on its side, with the most-requested features added in,” comments Heather Ambrose, PocketWizard Marketing Manager. “The Plus IV is by no means a replacement for the Plus III. They complement each other. An ideal set-up might be a Plus IV for on-camera flash in TTL mode, another Plus IV with a speedlight mounted in manual mode and two Plus IIIs connected to studio lights. The Plus IV features the same Quad-Zone Triggering as the Plus III so you can easily turn any one of those remote flashes on or off directly from the camera, and either create different looks or work in different areas.”
 
The Plus IV has the performance enhancing features of the Plus III including Long Range and Repeater Modes to help photographers tackle the most challenging shooting environments, opening the door for never-attempted image ideas. All features, channels and zones can be easily set using the soft-touch keypad and are clearly displayed on the backlit LCD display.

The new Plus IV will be demonstrated at the PocketWizard Booth (#663) at PhotoPlus 2015 in New York City, NY, October 22 – 24, 2015. The product is expected to be available at retail in January 2016.

Mac OS X El Capitan Note
 
At this moment, our PocketWizard Utility appears to be incompatible with Mac OS X El Capitan. Something has changed in how they handle USB devices. We're looking into it. In the meantime, you'll either have to refrain from updating to El Capitan to work with the PocketWizard Utility, or find another machine to use it on. We're not the only ones experiencing issues:
 
Their new System Integrity Protection shifts how things work. It impacts some simple connectivity stuff we've relied upon. We are researching solutions now:

New distribution channel allows LPA Design a closer connection with the photographer.
 
South Burlington, VT – As the wireless market and the photo industry as a whole continues to become more competitive and challenging, LPA Design, manufacturers of PocketWizard Photo Products, has realized the need to get closer to the photographer and has started selling direct to USA dealers. This change in distribution only affects the US market. LPA Design continues to rely on their network of global distributors and dealers throughout the world. “As we transition to our new sales and marketing approach, we are excited by the possibilities of working more directly with our Dealers and building closer relationships with the community of PocketWizard photographers. We’re exploring the means to hear and respond to our customers in a more direct and informative way. We’ve already heard some comments and suggestions, and are making changes that will offer a range of mutual long term benefits. We’ve had a great partnership with the MAC Group over the past 14 years, as they’ve been integral in building the PocketWizard brand in the US market. We wish them continued success in the future,” commented Heather Ambrose, Marketing Manager at LPA Design.
 
To spearhead our direct to dealer initiative, we have engaged the services of Lorenzo Gasperini of Inovanti, LLC to represent LPA Design / PocketWizard as our National Sales Manager. Lorenzo has a deep history with PocketWizard which started back in 1994 when he encountered PocketWizard and later joined Bogen Photo (Manfrotto USA) and LPA Design as the first US distributor. In 2000 Lorenzo joined the MAC Group and as the National Marketing Manager he inspired new products, markets and partnerships that lead to significant growth and success for the brand. In 2008 Lorenzo was paramount in building the PocketWizard brand internationally as the International Sales and Marketing Manager. In addition to his responsibilities with PocketWizard, Lorenzo (Inovanti) also works with the Sekonic light meter division and Syrp motion and linear control devices. Lorenzo has a tremendous amount of knowledge in the photographic and video market and will be an asset to the PocketWizard Sales and Marketing Team once again. PocketWizard looks forward to continuing toward a closer and stronger alliance with all their US dealers in an effort to strengthen their USA-built brand.

Firmware version 3.800 for Nikon includes compatibility with the recently released D750. Additionally, firmware version 6.800 for Canon now provides TTL compatibility with the Canon 7D Mk II. Any current owner of the ControlTL system can easily install this version via USB and update for free using the PocketWizard Utility. PocketWizard Utility version 1.54 or later is required before installing this update.
 
“This firmware release makes us compatible with most current Nikon and Canon DSLR cameras.

Sports Photographers around the world can now have Custom IDs installed in their Plus III radios.
 
So. Burlington, VT – January 16, 2015 – LPA Design, manufacturers of PocketWizard Photo Products, announces the immediate availability of Custom IDs for Plus III radios. In light of the recent retirement of the MultiMAX Transceiver, we felt it was very important to offer a Custom ID solution for Sports Shooters and other photographers who shoot in crowded venues.
 
What is a Custom ID? It is a private digital code that no one can trigger but you. It is a premium service offered exclusively by PocketWizard. In hyper-crowded shooting environments, such as large sporting events, Custom IDs give you the confidence to know that your remote flash or camera can only be triggered by you and not any other photographer. It is a unique code installed on top of an existing PocketWizard frequency replacing one of your normal Channels with your new custom code and frequency combination.
 
No other manufacturer offers such a valuable service. Custom ID’s are $95 per ID per unit and this service is only available directly through LPA Design, the manufacturer of PocketWizard products. There is no set-up fee and the customer is responsible for all shipping costs.
 
Plus III Custom IDs are compatible with MultiMAX Custom IDs. MultiMAX firmware version 7.50 and later has a feature for moving a Custom ID to a different frequency. Plus III Custom IDs are set to fixed frequencies. You will need to match your MultiMAX frequency to the Plus III. Learn more here: http://wiki.pocketwizard.com/index.php?title=Multiuser_Environments
 
How do you get a Custom ID?
 
You must first own at least two Custom ID-capable radios like the Plus III or MultiMAX. LPA Design only sells radios through dealers, but the Custom ID service can only be performed at LPA Design (that’s how we guarantee unique IDs). We recommend you buy your Plus III radios from your favorite PocketWizard dealer and drop-ship them directly to LPA Design for Custom ID installation. Please send an email to info@pocketwizard.com with your contact information prior to ordering the radios. We will contact you for payment and final shipping arrangements when we receive your radios.

Latest TTL firmware update expands extensive list of compatible cameras making PocketWizard more in sync with what today’s photographers are shooting with.
 
So. Burlington, VT – August 5, 2014 - LPA Design, manufacturers of PocketWizard Photo Products, the world leader in wireless control of cameras, flash lighting and flash power control with Sekonic light meters, announces today a new update to its ControlTL firmware for both Nikon and Canon versions of its MiniTT1 and FlexTT5 radios. Firmware version 3.700 for Nikon includes compatibility with the recently released D810, D610, D4S and other Nikon cameras. Additionally, firmware version 6.700 for Canon now provides TTL compatibility with the Canon 1D X, 6D and T4i as well as other recently released Canon cameras. See the compatibility list below. Any current owner of the ControlTL system can easily install this version via USB and update for free using the PocketWizard Utility. PocketWizard Utility version 1.54 or later is required before installing this update.
 
“Not only are we now compatible with all current Canon and Nikon DSLRs, we’ve added resources to our firmware department allowing us to have a significant breakthrough in firmware development. We can react much more quickly to newer cameras entering the market,” said Heather Ambrose, Marketing Director at LPA Design, the company that manufacturers PocketWizard Photo Products. “We received a Nikon D810 two weeks ago and our firmware engineers got right on it. A focused look under the hood and they found that the camera behaved similar to the D4S. After a few iterations of firmware, combined with comprehensive testing, it was determined that the D810 could be added to the current firmware release. This is by far the fastest turnaround we’ve been able to achieve, and we hope to keep this momentum going.”

From PocketWizard:
 
South Burlington, VT - July 17, 2014 - The PocketWizard MultiMAX, our venerable flagship radio product, is being retired effective immediately.
 
The MultiMAX was born in early 2001 and is just a little older than Windows XP. One of the first digital transceivers in the photo industry, the MultiMAX became the professional choice for over a dozen basketball seasons, seven Olympics, and countless portraits and weddings. Its special mix of technology enabled it to survive the industry’s transition from film to digital. Some of its features, like Custom IDs, True Trigger Confirmation, and Equalization, have never been duplicated. Certainly, the MultiMAX has earned its place in the history of photography.
 
Today, key parts are no longer being manufactured. Case in point is the LCD which was based on an early flip phone (the Motorola StarTac of the late 1990’s). So, regrettably, we can no longer market the MultiMAX.
 
Fortunately, the PocketWizard Plus III radio carries on the primary features of the MultiMAX, like 32 channels, Quad-Zone Triggering, Long Range Mode, and Auto-Relay and is fully compatible with the MultiMAX and the entire PocketWizard line.
 
Stock:
Final orders have shipped. Check with your dealer or distributor for retail availability.
 
Warranty Repairs:
PocketWizard will honor warranties and perform customer repairs for the next few years. If warranty repairs are unable to be performed due to parts depletion, we will make reasonable efforts to help photographers maintain PocketWizard compatibility by offering alternative product at a special value.
 
Custom IDs:
The Custom ID service for the MultiMAX will remain available for MultiMAX owners. We will investigate the possibility of implementing Custom IDs in the Plus III or a future radio.
 
Special Accessories:
All PocketWizard remote camera and flash cables will remain in the product line. MultiMAX specific accessories like PW-CC (Confirmation Cable) and PW-AC-MX (AC Adapter for older 6-pin radios) will no longer be produced, but may still be available at retailers.
 
If you have a moment, please share your MultiMAX stories on our Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/pocketwizards
