Pocket Wizard TT1 for Nikon’s iTTL
Submitted by Ron: EtherealPixels.com
I took delivery on one of these babies last week and shot with it a few days following. For those unfamiliar with it, when coupled with PW’s newer generation of transceivers, you get most of the iTTL functionality available with Nikon CLS or Canon’s iTTL via the radio wireless link, enabling high speed sync with certain studio monolights, such as the new Buff Einstein units. By the way, the Einsteins are awesome!!!!!
Here’s what needs to be done with the PW Mini on a newer Nikon:
Please check the camera menu under the pencil mode, go to “E-1” and select 250th (Auto FP). Also if you shoot RAW do not use 14 bit.
Next go to the PW Utility and connect the Mini. Click on Advanced Mode box at the bottom of the page. Under the channel tab De-select the box for “ControlTL Transmit Priority at X-Sync”
Hey Ron, thanks so much for the first hand review and heads up. We all appropriate it 🙂
