This is a field test/review of my new PocketWizard MiniTT1 and FlexTT5 units. Testing was done in a method which represents that of a working photographer, therefore I haven’t tested the units with the antennas positioned in the numerous wacky positions suggested by PocketWizard at this page [link]
A busy working press/editorial photographer really doesn’t have the time to constantly adjust the positioning of the units to maximize range according to PocketWizard’s tips.
I have found both units to work perfectly well in very close range however my main reason for purchasing these was to have perfect reliability. Unfortunately this is not possible in my working environment. Hopefully there will be a simple solution soon. I still love my bunch of PocketWizard Plus II’s for remote camera triggering and simple non-ttl flash triggering however I feel pretty let down by this latest product from the PocketWizard stables.
Please note PocketWizard – I would be love to product test any new improved devices for you!
