Professional photographers have depended on PocketWizard® radios for reliable triggering of their manual flashes for years.  But, with the onslaught of digital technology, photographers have been seeking a simpler solution for off-camera TTL flash.  The available products and solutions have been good, but not without limitations or complexity.  PocketWizard has made it possible with the Slide-n-Shoot simplicity of the new ControlTL® system (Control the Light), featuring the MiniTT1® Transmitter and FlexTT5® Transceiver for Canon and Nikon.  These new E-TTL II and CLS / i-TTL capable radios make taking off-camera flash photos as effortless as slide-in, turn-on and shoot.

These products are the beginning of a new era in PocketWizard technology featuring the ControlTL firmware.  ControlTL taps into the camera’s digital communications to enable an entirely new level of remote flash capability through our proven radio system, with remote TTL for Canon E-TTL II and Nikon CLS / i-TTL systems. 

Sure, remote wireless flash is available today, but with major system limitations or complexities.  Now you can simply slide-in, turn-on and shoot with the new PocketWizard MiniTT1 and FlexTT5 regardless of flash positioning or daylight.  Changes in ISO, aperture and shutter speed are seamlessly passed along for reliable, flawless flash.  You can even use your camera controls to make changes in flash output.  Need ratios?  You can do that too.

Upgradeable and Configurable:
457upgradeable_caption_cropped_resized.jpg ControlTL was designed to be user configurable and upgradeable making these new units virtually “future-proof.” Simply make a Mac or PC connection through the USB port and fire up the included PocketWizard Utility software to select other channels, adjust sleep mode timeout, adjust flash trigger timing for HyperSync™ mode, and more.

Behind the scenes, we are hard at work on new features for both TTL and studio flash that will help you get the most out of your equipment.
