I added a new page to the site's Help section: Used DSLR Cameras, Lenses and Acessories for Sale
 
This will give me a static location to list used gear that I am finished evaluating/using for sale.
 
I will post here when any significant additions are made to the used gear page. Note that I don't have time to do a lot of price research, but usually try to list the gear, typically in mint condition, at attractive prices.

South Burlington, VT - PocketWizard today launched the newest firmware version for the MiniTT1 Transmitter and FlexTT5 Transceiver. ControlTL Firmware Version 5.1 is a firmware upgrade which allows compatibility with the AC3 ZoneController for Canon. The AC3 ZoneController gives the photographer control over three independent zones of light, whether working in E-TTL or Manual mode, directly from the camera’s position. Additionally, the firmware upgrade now allows compatibility with the Canon Rebel T2i. Compatibility with the Canon 7D and 1D Mark IV has also been expanded.
 
There have been a few refinements to the firmware since the 5.0 launch which has been tested in the beta lab in the form of two beta versions.
 
For more detailed information on firmware version 5.1, including compatibility, refinements and operational notes, please click here.
 
IMPORTANT: When upgrading your radios, be sure to upgrade all MiniTT1’s and FlexTT5’s to v5.1 for proper AC3 functionality. Your radios will only operate as expected when all units are using the latest firmware.
 
Additionally, always perform a factory reset after updating your firmware. And be sure to write down any custom settings for Configuration 1 or Configuration 2 before you reset your radios so you can re-apply them after the upgrade. See RESET B on page 28 in the original Owner’s Manual or simply hold TEST as you power on for 10 seconds until you see 4 blinks (green).
 
PocketWizard, the world leader in wireless control and synchronization of cameras, flash lighting and light meters, is made by LPA Design, based in South Burlington, Vermont and sold by MAC Group in the USA and authorized distributors around the world.
 
Use PocketWizard Utility to download the update.
