PocketWizard MiniTT1 and FlexTT5 now available for Nikon
Nikon users rejoice, pockewizard has announced their MiniTT1 and FlexTT5 radio transmitters are now available for NIkon! I reviewed these units for the Canon awhile back here, Pocketwizard MiniTT1 and FlexTT5 review and have absolutely loved using them this past year. Being able to use high speed flash synch along with ETTL has been so convenient for on location portrait work and wedding photography. These only were available for Canon for some time but now are available for all of you Nikon users out there. Here is the official PocketWizard press release.
So. Burlington, VT – January 18, 2011 PocketWizard® MiniTT1® and FlexTT5® radios for Nikon are now shipping everywhere. Shipments to dealers in the USA began today and will continue daily. These Nikon i-TTL compatible radios are being shipped with the latest ControlTL® firmware for Nikon, version 2.100.
ControlTL firmware v2.100 for Nikon adds compatibility for the new Nikon D7000 and addresses some other operational issues. Current owners of the MiniTT1 and FlexTT5 radios for Nikon can upgrade to the new firmware for free via the PocketWizard Utility.
This firmware does not include compatibility for the new SB700, this will be addressed in a future firmware version.
PocketWizard has also just released an online wiki format manual for both Nikon and Canon versions of the ControlTL system. The wiki format allows the manual to stay current as new features are added and improvements are made to the easily upgraded ControlTL system.
The AC3 ZoneController for Nikon is on schedule for February deliveries. The AC9 AlienBees Adapter for Nikon is on schedule for March deliveries.
