Flex TT5 and Flex Mini as camera remote

->> I'm using the Pocket Wizard Flex TT5 and Mini as my trigger system for my remote camera during hoops in the Carrier Dome. It worked great last year, but not so much this year. I suspect RF interference and am going thru the 32-channels to try for a working combo. Working in the 340-354 Mz range of the units might make them really susceptible to RF. the closer I am to the unit, the better it seems to work. Just wondering if anybody is using them for remotes, has any ideas, or is the MultiMax unit the way to go. I was of course trying to stay away from a hard wire set-up. Oh yeah, no other 'togs using remotes here.

->> Michael,

I use the Pocketwizard PlusII/III Transcievers for camera remote work with a pre release cord. I find the range is much greater and less interference with these units over the tt5/mini combo. Also, the Mini dosent have an external antenna, and that cuts down range. One other thing that wii cut down tange on the Mini tt1 is not having a full CR2450 battery.

->> I wouldn't even think of usng mini in a dome. Multimax or maybe a PW3. Something with a LR mode, and external antenna. And the MultiMax can scan frequencies so you can see what's going on.

->> I love my PW II and plus, with nearly 100% success rate. My TT1/TT5 not so, with a 30-50% failure rate. I think I have a defective TT1.
