The PocketWizard MultiMAX, PocketWizard's venerable flagship radio product, is being retired effective immediately.
The MultiMAX was born in early 2001 and is just a little older than Windows XP. One of the first digital transceivers in the photo industry, the MultiMAX became the professional choice for over a dozen basketball seasons, seven Olympics, and countless portraits and weddings. Some of its features, like Custom IDs, True Trigger Confirmation, and Equalization, have never been duplicated.
Today, key parts are no longer being manufactured. Case in point is the LCD which was based on an early flip phone (the Motorola StarTac of the late 1990’s). So, regrettably, PocketWizard say they can no longer market the MultiMAX.
Fortunately, the PocketWizard Plus lll radio carries on the primary features of the MultiMAX, like 32 channels, Quad-Zone Triggering, Long Range Mode, and Auto-Relay and is fully compatible with the MultiMAX and the entire PocketWizard line.
PocketWizard will honour warranties and perform customer repairs for the next few years. If warranty repairs are unable to be performed due to parts depletion, they will make reasonable efforts to help photographers maintain PocketWizard compatibility by offering alternative product at a special value.
The Custom ID service for the MultiMAX will remain available for MultiMAX owners. PocketWizard will investigate the possibility of implementing Custom IDs in the Plus lll or a future radio.
