    I suppose it’s nice if you want backwards compatibility, and there’s no denying that PW makes a great product, but I’d have a really difficult time justifying these over my RF-602s.

    Unless you would only use these for studio strobes and/or remote shutter release, there’s little value in a $100 transceiver for flashguns WITH NO HOTSHOE. Mounting a flash and a heavy dongle is a pain in the arse, risky, and can appear unprofessional. Oh, and it adds to the expense in time and money for additional gear to secure the whole menagerie.

    Those geniuses at PocketWizard must think they are the only game in town. The world of remote flash syncing has passed them by in so many ways, but none more obvious as that of manual flash triggering – where there are a dozen better/cheaper options available.

    Remote camera release? Is PW copying Yongnuo now?

    • apollo

      No. YongNou copied PW. PW has been able to trigger cameras since the first version.

  • ted

    Stupid question, but how is this device different from the TT1/TT5 units that Pocketwizard also sells?

    • That guy that does that thing

      TT1/TT5 are separate pieces of PW’s Flex system. The Flex system can operate on all 32 of PW’s channels and are firmware upgradeable.

    I can fire my 2 flashes (1) A Nikon SB700 and (2) a Yongnuo 560 II from my D7000 soon to be D7100 on Camera Flash in commander mode.
