PocketWizard has announced a major update to its ControlTL firmware for the MiniTT1®, FlexTT5®, PowerMC2 and PowerST4 radios and minor updates for the Plus® III and MultiMAX® radios.
The new ControlTL firmware provides compatibility for several new Canon and Nikon cameras, greatly improves the performance of PocketWizard’s exclusive HyperSync feature and resolves bugs in previous versions.
It is available now as a free download using the PocketWizard Utility and it is strongly recommended that all current owners of the MiniTT1, FlexTT5, PowerST4 and PowerMC2 update all their radios to the latest firmware for best performance. Any current owner of the ControlTL system can easily install this version via USB connection and update their PocketWizard radios for free. Complete details are available at the PocketWizard website here.
The new firmware includes complete compatibility for the Nikon D600
cameras and manual power control compatibility for the Canon EOS 6D
, EOS-1D X
and EOS Rebel T4i
In addition to the new camera compatibility, this new firmware version offers significantly improved HyperSync flash performance. This exclusive feature offers photographers the ability to use studio flash well beyond their camera’s normal x-sync speed, for greatly expanded creative control.
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 PocketWizard website
