PocketWizard updates radio firmware, release new power cable

By Sports Shooter Staff

PocketWizard have posted firmware upgrades to several of their products. You can get the details on their website:

PocketWizard technician and Sports Shooter Academy faculty member Ian Ray told us among other things "The new 6.4 Canon / 3.4 Nikon release has some performance gains in regards to HyperSync. We made some adjustments to the algorithms on a per-camera basis to get some sync timing gains (less banding on some cameras), and also added some time to the HyperSync slider so that you can adjust backwards a little bit farther."

The major update is to the company’s ControlTL firmware for the MiniTT1®, FlexTT5®, PowerMC2 and PowerST4 radios and minor updates for the Plus® III and MultiMAX® radios.

The Plus III and MultiMAX radios also have new firmware. The new firmware for the Plus III resolves some minor bugs. The MultiMAX firmware, which has been available for a while in beta, adds two new features.

PocketWizard Utility version 1.54 or newer is required before installing these updates. For more information on the latest firmware versions and how to update PocketWizard products via USB connection visit:

The company also announced a cool new product the Nikon Power Cable (PW-DC-N10) for use with the PocketWizard MiniTT1 Transmitter, the Plus III and MultiMAX (version with USB port) Transceivers and any Nikon Digital Single-Lens Reflex camera equipped with a Nikon 10-pin remote terminal. This cable provides a PocketWizard radio, mounted in the camera’s hot-shoe, the power it needs to operate from the camera.

The PW-DC-N10 cable retails for $20. For me details, check out this link on the company’s website:
