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 is The-Digital-Picture.com's Weekend Recap for the week ending April 6th, 2013
In the news...
On Monday, we had great fun publishing the announcement of Canon’s newest DSLR designed specifically for left-handed photographers, the EOS 7D L. The 7D L featured a reversed ergonomic design and Canon’s red “L” branding signifying its status as an elite item. Unfortunately for left-handed photographers everywhere, the EOS 7D L announcement was, of course, an April Fool’s gag. We hope you enjoyed our little humor…
On Tuesday, Nikon released firmware updates for nine of its DSLR cameras. Among various bug fixes and improvements, the new firmware updates added support for Nikon’s new AF-S NIKKOR 800mm f/5.6E FL ED VR lens.
Also on Tuesday, Tamron announced the creation of an Indian subsidiary, Tamron India Private Limited. The subsidiary was established in order to prepare for anticipated continuing growth in the DSLR lens market in the region.
On Wednesday, Canon announced the development of its new 35mm Cinema Prime lens. The new lens will join Canon’s growing lineup of cinema prime lenses that already includes the 14, 24, 50, 85, and 135mm prime lenses.
And on Thursday, Canon announced the opening of a new service center in Ridgefield Park, New Jersey to provide comprehensive product repair and maintenance services to its ever expanding professional imaging market. The facility is available exclusively for Platinum and Gold level members of Canon's Professional Services (CPS) program.
In site news and reviews...
Starting on Wednesday and continuing into the next week, Bryan is highlighting updates to his Canon lens recommendation pages.

And, for our deal of the week…
On Tuesday, we reported that you could get a Canon EF 85mm f/1.8 USM lens for $325.00 with free shipping. That’s more than an 18% savings off the normal retail price of $399.00.
This has been the The-Digital-Picture.com’s Weekend Recap. Thanks for listening, and as always, happy shooting!"
