PocketWizard Announces ControlTL Firmware Update

New features and free upgrades available now for MiniTT1® and FlexTT5® radios, both Canon and Nikon versions

Pocket Wizard, the world leader in wireless control of cameras, flash lighting and light meters, has announced a new update to its ControlTLfirmware for both Nikon and Canon versions of its MiniTT1 and FlexTT5 radios. Available now, firmware version 3.150 for Nikon and 6.150 for Canon include several new features and updates including compatibility with more cameras and flash units, support for the Sekonic RT-32CTLmodule, and a new optimized rear curtain sync utility control. Any current owner of the ControlTL system can easily install these new features via USB connection and update for free using the PocketWizard Utility.


New firmware features include compatibility with the Nikon D4, D800 and D800E digital cameras and Nikon SB-910 Speedlight as well as compatibility with the Canon 600EX-RT Speedlite and ST-E3-RT Speedlite Transmitter. Compatibility for the Canon 5D Mark III is not available at this time but firmware for this camera should be available in the near future.

This update enables PocketWizard’s MiniTT1 and FlexTT5 radios to work with Sekonic RT-32CTL equipped light meters and trigger compatible flashes in ControlTL mode. This allows photographers with an AC3 ZoneController on their transmitting MiniTT1or FlexTT5 to set remote flash power levels on their Speedlights or other ControlTL flashes, and then meter those remote flashes using their compatible Sekonic light meter, all wirelessly within the ControlTL system.

These two firmware releases also include many additional operational improvements like improved default Aperture Priority and Rear Curtain Sync operation, improved Pre-Flash operation across all zones (Nikon), and more. Learn more here:
