FlexTT5 Nikon
[pocketwizard-tt5]
$350.00

The Most Versatile PocketWizard Radio Ever.
The dedicated FlexTT5® Transceiver for Nikon is part of a new generation of PocketWizard ControlTL radios with i-TTL and remote power control for Nikon Speedlights, and select studio lights. Your creativity also now extends far beyond X-Sync speeds with HyperSync and FP Sync capabilities.

Pocketwizard Flex TT5 Frequencies
340.00 - 354.00 MHz, US FCC / IC Frequency
433.42 - 434.42 MHz, CE Frequency

With its built in hot-shoe, ControlTL™ firmware and transceiver function, the FlexTT5 is the perfect addition to Nikon CLS / i-TTL flash system and takes the Nikon CLS system beyond the boundaries of infrared technology.  When paired with the MiniTT1® Transmitter or another FlexTT5 Transceiver, a whole new world of wireless flash freedom opens up. The FlexTT5 is also the perfect Transceiver for your manual triggering needs and works with all MultiMAX channels and many of the MultiMAX advanced functions.

The FlexTT5’s simple design comes to life through its hot-shoe connection with a camera or flash.

On camera, the FlexTT5 works identically to the MiniTT1 with the convenience of AA batteries. The system tracks your changes in ISO and aperture and reacts accordingly to make sure exposures stay right on target. Use the exposure compensation dial on your camera to remotely adjust your flash output. Mount a flash or command unit on the FlexTT5 to use the same zone controls as you would normally. Slip in the AC3 ZoneController for Nikon and use its simple interface to control three zones of lights.

With PocketWizard's patent pending HyperSync™ Technology, the FlexTT5 can precisely advance the timing of your flash trigger so that increased flash sync speeds, up to 1/500th of a second is achievable with many strobes.

Need more speed?  Push your ControlTL system beyond 1/500th and go into High Speed Sync /FP mode automatically.  Simply change your shutter speed to get flash sync all the way to 1/8000th.  No buttons to press or settings to change!

Under a remote flash, the FlexTT5 is your seamless connection to remote power control. Select one of three zones, and add as many lights to each zone as you like. Run one zone in manual and another in i-TTL and control it all from your camera. Place your flashes where you want to; hide them or use them in bright daylight.

More Flexibility.  Use the FlexTT5's camera sync port to trigger a remote camera.  Use the flash port to trigger any manual flash. The FlexTT5 also has our Auto-Sensing Transceiver Technology that enables it to switch back and forth between Transmitter and Receiver modes as needed for greater flexibility on the job. When a hot-shoe or other trigger is detected, it automatically switches to Transmitter mode.  

With Auto Relay Mode you can easily trigger a remote camera in sync with remote flash.  Put a camera where you can’t be and use remote TTL or manual lighting at the same time.  Expand your coverage and increase your creativity.

The FlexTT5 has two channel configuration settings; C1 and C2.  Each can be programmed as needed with up to 20 ControlTL channels* for TTL photography, or 32 standard channels** for manual flash photography.  The FlexTT5 Transceiver also has a three-zone selector switch for ease of use with Nikon zones and ratios.

* - 20 ControlTL channels for FCC/IC 344 MHz radios and three ControlTL channels for CE 433 MHz radios.

** - 32 Standard channels for FCC/IC 344 MHz radios and 35 Standard channels for CE 433 MHz radios.


A PocketWizard Utility download is provided to support the FlexTT5 Transceiver via a USB port.  The Utility allows you to configure your channel settings, dial in your HyperSync timing, adjust your sleep-mode timers as well as update your product to the latest firmware.


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

COMPATIBILITY

The MiniTT1 and FlexTT5 for Nikon are compatible with these modern Nikon Digital SLR's cameras capable of using Nikon's latest i-TTL / CLS protocol:

     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
     D100
     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.
