MiniTT1/FlexTT5 Beta firmware release for Nikon
Compatibility with the following NIKON gear:
- Nikon D600, Nikon D5200 & Nikon D3200
- HyperSync Improvements
MiniTT1/FlexTT5 Beta firmware release for Canon
Compatibility with the following CANON gear:
- Canon 6D & Canon T4i – Manual power control only (no TTL)
- HyperSync Improvements
PowerMC2 & PowerST4 Beta firmware release with HyperSync Improvements
The Nikon D600 (full-featured) and Canon 6D (manual-only) firmware is in the final testing stages. Some HyperSync enhancements, currently enabled for Canon only, are also in the final testing stages for all our ControlTL radios: MiniTT1 & FlexTT5 for both Canon and Nikon including the AC9 AlienBees Adapter, and the PowerST4 & PowerMC2. This large bundle of firmware could be available in Beta this month if all goes as well as we hope, and available as officially released firmware a few weeks after that. You'll be able to get some serious practice with it well before the heat of the June wedding season.
Ongoing: The latest Canon cameras have an entirely new TTL protocol. This has proven extremely difficult to reverse engineer as is the case with the Canon 1DX. We believe we have found a path to a solution, but it will still take many weeks to validate, implement and test-test-test. There is nothing simple about this. When completed it will be made available as a free update to the ControlTL system, as have all other compatibility updates.
B&H carries the PocketWizard MiniTT1 and FlexTT5 triggering units.

*This Plus III firmware requires PocketWizard Utility version 1.54 or later, click here to download PocketWizard Utility 1.54 or 1.55
When you have installed the latest Utility, connect your Plus III to your computer with a standard Mini-B USB cable. Click “Check For Updates” to begin. Be sure to update all of your radios to the latest version. Your radios will only operate as expected when all radios are using the latest firmware.

The Canon 1D X will work in the ControlTL® system with some important operational considerations:
* Please note that the BETA firmware release for the Canon 1D X will have limited compatibility. The firmware release will include Manual Power Control and Manual HSS and HyperSync®. The beta release firmware for the Canon 1D X will not have the capability to perform TTL exposures.
The schedule above represents our BETA release plan. We will make decisions about official PRODUCTION releases as we go, depending on reverse engineering progress and field reports.
We intend to update the Nikon and Canon compatibility pages on wiki.pocketwizard.com on a regular basis. Any updates to the firmware release plan will also be updated on Facebook and Twitter.
From now until July 31st, you can upgrade your older Custom ID radio to a modern MultiMAX for $195. Just send your Custom ID radio to LPA Design and we will take care of the rest.
How do you know if you have an older MultiMAX? Hold down “A” on power-up – if your MultiMAX displays version 6.xx or earlier, you could benefit from an upgrade!
This offer is only available for MultiMAX or MAX radios with Custom IDs already installed. It is not for Plus, Plus II, Plus III, etc. This offer is only available directly from LPA Design.
