MiniTT1 Transmitter for Nikon

The smallest PocketWizard radio ever, the MiniTT1® Transmitter is part of a new generation of PocketWizard radios providing i-TTL and power control capabilities with Nikon Speedlights and select studio lights.  Your creativity also extends far beyond X-Sync speeds with HyperSync and FP Sync capabilities.

Pocketwizard Mini TT1 Frequencies

340.00 - 354.00 MHz, US FCC / IC Frequency
433.42 - 434.42 MHz, CE Frequency

The MiniTT1 locks onto the camera’s hot shoe, supporting an on-camera flash with its own hot shoe while working with remote PocketWizard units. Remotes can be one or more PocketWizard FlexTT5® Transceivers connected to Nikon CLS / i-TTL flashes or any PocketWizard Receiver for triggering flash or remote cameras.

The MiniTT1 Transmitter is easy to use; just slide in place and begin to shoot.  The new PocketWizard ControlTL® System interprets the complex CLS / i-TTL data being sent through the camera’s hot shoe and digitally transmits it in a reliable radio signal. Change the exposure compensation dial on the camera, and those commands pass seamlessly through the system to your remote flash.  Adjust your aperture or ISO and the system automatically corrects for those changes.

Add the PocketWizard AC3 ZoneController to easily adjust up to three zones of light independently, in both i-TTL or manual. PocketWizard ControlTL radio communication allows you to shoot farther, faster, around corners, through walls even at high noon in bright daylight.  Now you can deploy a wireless i-TTL flash system wherever you want, without infrared limitations, in seconds.

Take advantage of PocketWizard’s HyperSync Technology that allows 1/500th of a second camera sync or more with many camera/strobe set-ups.  HyperSync allows you to advance the timing of your flash trigger so that faster than X-sync speeds can be achieved.

Need more speed?  Push your ControlTL system beyond 1/500th and go into High Speed Sync / FP mode automatically.  With HSS Sync engaged in the camera menu, select any shutter speed you want with your Nikon i-TTL flashes, all the way up to 1/8000th of a second.  With radio wireless, the possiblities of FP Sync become a lot more exciting.

Use the MiniTT1 with the PowerST4 Receiver, PowerMC2 Receiver, or AC9 AlienBees Adapter on a FlexTT5 and get remote power control with your Elinchrom RX or any Paul C. Buff flash.

Use the MiniTT1 for standard triggering with any PocketWizard Receiver including the FlexTT5, PlusII or MultiMAX. Yes, you can intermix i-TTL flash with any manual flash extending your lighting possiblities.

The MiniTT1 works on the powerful ControlTL platform and can be configured via the PocketWizard Utility.  The PocketWizard Utility download is provided to support the MiniTT1 via a USB port.  The Utility allows you to configure your channel settings, dial in your HyperSync timing, adjust your sleep-mode timers and update your product to the latest firmware.

The PocketWizard MiniTT1 Transmitter is the start of a new era in wireless trigger control.


* PocketWizard radio systems utilize different frequencies in different markets to meet performance and regulatory requirements.  We  cannot provide proper warranty service for products shipped out of  their intended market.

     Nikon D3x, D3s, D3, D2x

     Nikon D700, D300, D300s, D200

     Nikon D90, D80, D40x, D40

     Nikon D7000, D5000, D3000


The MiniTT1 & FlexTT5 for Nikon are compatible with the following modern Nikon Speedlights as Remote flashes and Nikon On-Camera Master flashes:  (Other flashes may work in "Basic Trigger Mode" without CLS / i-TTL.)

Nikon Speedlights as Remotes:
     SB-400, SB-600, SB-800, SB-900

Nikon On-Camera Master Flashes:
     SB-800, SB-900, SU-800


NOTE:   Nikon D3100 - camera has initial feature compatibility built into the firmware and will function well in normal sync modes however a future firmware update will be released shortly to improve timing capabilities with Rear Curtain Sync and add other compatibility improvements.

Nikon SB-700 flash -  currently being researched, and should be addressed in a future firmware update.

The MiniTT1 & FlexTT5 for Nikon are currently NOT compatible with these Nikon cameras:

     D1, D1x, D1h, D2h, D2hs, D2xs
     D70, D70s
     Coolpix and Film-based cameras

The MiniTT1 & FlexTT5 for Nikon are currently NOT compatible with the following Nikon flashes as Remote Units:

Any older generation Nikon Flashes as Remote Units Such as:
     SB-80DX; SB-80; SB-28DX; SB-28; SB-50

BASIC TRIGGER MODE: Note that almost all cameras and flashes are compatible with the MiniTT1 and FlexTT5 when the radios are configured for Basic Trigger Mode.  Basic Trigger Mode disables ALL power controlling and TTL functions of the radios.

Operational Notes:

- 14-Bit RAW recording not compatible with High Speed Sync (HSS) - Set NEF RAW recording to 12-Bit for proper functioning.

-   Flash exposure compensation is controlled as part of the camera’s exposure compensation, set via the exposure compensation button near the shutter release. This compensation works in all shooting modes, including Manual. When in Manual mode, the exposure compensation will only affect the flash exposure, as the camera exposure is controlled by the settings you’ve selected manually. Note that the D2x and D3 series cameras do not have Flash Exposure Compensation on the camera body, as they don’t have a built-in flash.

-    Vibration Reduction (VR) Mode Auto-Detection: When using VR Lenses, switching the VR Mode on or off results in the transmitting radio taking a calibration shot to adjust for the resulting  flash timing shift. This may result in a single missed frame after changing the VR mode on or off. In rare cases, when shooting above your camera’s x-sync speed (1/250th or faster on most cameras), this calibration shot may fail, and continued dark frames may occur. If this happens, take a test shot at a shutter speed below 1/200th of a second, and then move back to your desired shutter speed. In the interest of simplicity, we recommend leaving VR-mode either on or off for the duration of your shooting session.

-    Pre-Flash boost controls: Modern TTL (Through The Lens) metering systems are based on a pre-flash fired an instant before the camera’s shutter opens, allowing the camera to calculate the amount of light output required for a proper exposure. Pre-Flash Boost is a feature which increases this metering pre-flash’s light output, which helps to make more accurate TTL exposure calculations at the longer distances our ControlTL radios can achieve. It also helps compensate for light lost when using a light modifier like an umbrella or soft box. By default, this feature adds approximately 2 stops of light output to these metering flashes. This light output can be controlled by the EV controls on the back of the remote flash. (Note that the amount of pre-flash boost compensation set on the remote flashes will not affect the final exposure.)  This allows you to increase the pre-flash boost beyond the default value for subjects farther away, and decrease the pre-flash boost for subjects very close to the flash.

-    High Speed / FP-Sync Speed Selection: In order to use High Speed/FP-Sync on cameras that support it, your camera must be set to use Auto FP mode via the Custom Settings Menu. On most cameras, this is Custom Setting “e1 – Flash Sync Speed”. All cameras that support HSS/FP-Sync operation have the option for 1/250th (Auto FP), which is the recommended menu setting. Some cameras such as the D300, D300s and D700 have a 1/320th (Auto FP) menu option, which is not recommended for use, as it can cause sync timing issues specifically at the 1/320th shutter speed.

-    SB-900 Light Pattern – The SB-900 has a special Light Pattern Menu, which allows you to set a slightly different light output pattern. Of the three options in this menu, “STD” for Standard output must be selected. Selecting either “CW” for Center-Weighted or “EVEN” for Even output is not supported and may result in exposure errors.

-    ControlTL Transmit Priority at X-sync: ControlTL radios transmit on both ControlTL and Standard PocketWizard channels, and have a very small delay between sending these two signals. Standard Channels are used by remote Plus II, MultiMAX or remoteFlexTT5 radios configured to use them. By default, the ControlTL channel is transmitted first, then the Standard Channel. At the camera’s x-sync speed (1/250th on most cameras), there is a very limited time window to send both signals, and in some cases the second signal may be too late to allow sync with the camera’s shutter. This checkbox in the PocketWizard Utility, accessed only by enabling the utility’s “Advanced Mode”,  controls which signal is sent first at the camera’s x-sync speed, to prioritize which signal is more important for your shooting scenario. Note that this caveat only applies at the camera’s x-sync speed shutter speed – all other shutter speeds above and below X-sync are unaffected

-    Rear Curtain Sync: Rear Curtain Sync works for all shutter speeds under x-sync down to 8”. Below 8” (including bulb mode), synchronization errors will occur. Front-curtain (normal) sync is unaffected at these longer speeds, including bulb-mode. Note that Rear-Curtain sync can be left enabled when above your camera’s x-sync speed – it just will not have any effect.

-    Mirror Up mode is not fully supported at this time – test with your specific configuration before using.

-    Exposure Delay mode (set via in-camera menu) is not currently supported.

-    Repeater/RPT mode is not currently supported.

-    Using in-camera “Flash Control for Built In Flash” menu to control remote zones is not currently supported.

-    ControlTL radios disable ALL infra-red/optical communication pulses used in Nikon’s native i-TTL system, and as such will not trigger remote flashes configured to receive these pulses. A PocketWizard radio is required for each remote flash you want to trigger.

-    The SB-900 flash’s local Manual mode cannot currently be triggered by a remote FlexTT5 – it must be in TTL mode (or Master mode when on-camera) to operate on ControlTL radios. Recommend work-around is to instead put the SB-900 into TTL mode, and control the flash’s power from the camera with a Master flash or SU-800 unit.

-   The SB-600 flash's local Manual mode  - when using a SB-600 on top of a remote FlexTT5, if you set the mode on the SB-600 to M, the SB-600 will fire a full power flash regardless of the set power level when triggered. Basic Trigger Mode restores normal Manual operation of the SB-600's Manual function and is the recommended workaround. A future firmware upgrade may correct this issue.
