MiniTT1-NikonWith its low profile design, you can use the MiniTT1 Transmitter on camera to trigger remote i-TTL / CLS speedlights or studio flashes attached to FlexTT5 Transceivers.
Place TTL or manual flashes anywhere to illuminate the scene: Around corners, out-of-sight and in bright sunlight. The MiniTT1 is compatible with any PocketWizard radio for triggering manual flash or remote cameras.
FULL FEATURE DESCRIPTIONS:
PocketWizard’s newest firmware platform taps into
the camera’s digital communications to enable an entirely new level of
remote flash capability through our proven radio system. ControlTL
allows remote i-TTL for Nikon CLS / i-TTL systems as well as Manual Power
Control. ControlTL firmware is configurable and upgradeable for
“future-proof” continuous improvement.
Dedicated CLS / i-TTL Triggering
MiniTT1 Transmitter into the hot shoe of a Nikon DSLR camera, and
mounting CLS / i-TTL flashes onto FlexTT5 Transceivers gives you full
flash exposure control with the freedom and reliability of a
PocketWizard radio. There are no special settings to make or modes to
call up. Use the camera’s flash exposure controls for basic control of
remote flashes, or add an AC3 ZoneController or Nikon Master unit for
even more flexibility.
Manual Power Control
Adjust the manual power settings of
your remote Nikon Speedlights directly from a AC3 ZoneController, SB-800 or SB-900 flash mounted on
your on-camera MiniTT1 or FlexTT5. You can independently control the power
output of up to three remote groups of lights (you can have as many lights in
each group as you want) from full power down to the lowest setting
simply through the user interface on the back of the SB-800 or SB-900 or with the dials of the AC3 ZoneController. Now you
can work with total control with your remote lights, without leaving
your shooting position. Nikon SU-800 Wireless Speedlight Commander may also be used.
High Speed Sync (Auto FP)
The MiniTT1 makes Nikon's
FP/HSS mode a lot more functional with the freedom of radio. Now you
can use your i-TTL speedlights in FP sync all the way to 1/8000 in the
middle of the day in bright sun! ControlTL gains faster recycling
times and more flashes per set of batteries when
shooting in Nikon's FP / HSS Flash mode. Use this feature to shoot wide
open in bright sun for amazing results.
Auto Trigger Select for ControlTL
The hot shoe on
both the MiniTT1 and Flex TT5 will trigger just about any hot shoe flash
placed into it in addition to the Nikon Speedlight's it is designed
for. Yes, you can now fire just about any hot shoe flash including
Vivitar, Canon, etc., in manual mode only and not TTL mode.
HyperSync™: Our patent pending HyperSync technology allows photographers to achieve faster X-sync speeds, sometimes up to 1/8000 of a second, with full power flash. Now you can cut the ambient light and use wide-open apertures, outdoors in bright sunlight. HyperSync automatically adjusts the timing of your flash trigger so that faster than X-sync speeds can be achieved. With certain Canon camera and flash combinations, you can achieve sync all the way to 1/8000th of a second. Just imagine what you can do using flash in bright sun with wide open apertures and fast shutter speeds. Since HyperSync is a trigger function you can use any PocketWizard Receiver including the FlexTT5, PlusII or MultiMAX.
HyperSync works with both TTL speedlites and full size studio flash. Please visit http://wiki.pocketwizard.com/hyperSync for configuring HyperSync. While performance varies by the camera and flash equipment being used, HyperSync will get the maximum possible out of any set-up.
HyperSync Automation adjusts
HyperSync timing in two separate places – on the transmitter and on the
receiving ControlTL radio. The transmitting or on-camera MiniTT1 or
FlexTT5 automatically adjusts HyperSync to compensate for changes made
to shutter speed. Photographers can further refine HyperSync via the
PocketWizard Utility. For more information on Configuring HyperSync
Automation, visit the HyperSync section of the PocketWizard Wiki.
High Speed Sync (HSS / FP Sync) Disable Mode
either HSS Sync or HyperSync™ at shutter speeds above x-sync. This
allows you to use HyperSync and the benefit of full power flash all the
way up to 1/2000 with certain flash systems.
Rear Curtain Sync
Precise rear curtain sync capability is engaged using the
camera's sync settings. Capture natural light trails with sharp
exposures at the end – no “after trails!”
Nikon flashes use a dual preflash system to
calculate i-TTL exposure values. In many TTL situations, including
shooting in full sun, over long distance or using diffusers or bounce
flash, the normal pre-flash is simply not enough for the camera to see.
PocketWizard's Pre-Flash Boost increases your remote Nikon flashes first
preflash by three stops and, if necessary, the second preflash by one
stop. The boost level can also be adjusted at the flash if necessary.
When working with certain manual flashes, you can
change any of your settings on your camera and the system adjusts for
those changes. Change your camera's exposure compensation to adjust the
flash output, or make adjustments in aperture or ISO and the system
balances your flash for proper exposure.
Built-in Hot Shoe
your Nikon flash into the MiniTT1’s dedicated hot shoe and combine your
remote flash with on-camera flash or use the on-camera flash for
additional CLS / i-TTL or Manual Power Control only. The metal and
glass reinforced resin hot shoe assembly is a superstructure onto itself
and incredibly durable. The best part; no more cords.
Basic Trigger Mode
Allows the MiniTT1 or FlexTT5 to
work as a transmitter on ANY camera it will fit. Anyone looking for the
small form factor of the MiniTT1 can use it on other DSLR’s, SLR’s or
even medium format cameras with standard hot shoes.
The MiniTT1 sends out two trigger signals; one on the new ControlTL
channels, and another on the same channels as all standard trigger
PocketWizard radios so they
will work with any unit you may already have.
PocketWizard Utility - Programmable and Upgradeable
the supplied PocketWizard Utility software with the on-board USB port
to program the MiniTT1 to any PocketWizard channel and zone as well as
many other custom settings. The MiniTT1 can be upgraded whenever
updates and feature enhancements are available.
Channels / Learn Mode
The MiniTT1 has two channel configuration settings; C1 and C2. Each can be
programmed as needed with up to 20 ControlTL channels* for TTL
photography or Manual Power Control, or 32 standard channels** for manual
flash photography. Channels can be configured with the PocketWizard
utility or use the Learn function to quickly program channels, or
the reset function to configure back to factory settings.
* - 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.
Add the AC3 ZoneController on top of your MiniTT1 for Nikon
and gain three zones of power control right from the camera’s position.
Works in both auto/CLS/i-TTL and manual. Shut down an entire zone with
the flick of a switch.
AC3 ZoneController sold separately.
SpeedCycler with an AC3 ZoneController
Previously only seen
with PocketWizard’s MultiMAX radios, this new mode is designed to
rapidly cycle through multiple flash units fired individually in
sequence. This allows photographers to fire a camera in sync with
flashes faster than a single flash unit can recycle. It can also be used
for triggering remote cameras sequentially. SpeedCycler is engaged on a
transmitting MiniTT1 or FlexTT5 via the PocketWizard Utility.
SpeedCycler mode requires an AC3 ZoneController in the top hot-shoe of the on-camera PocketWizard radio. Zones A, B, and C will be triggered sequentially and individual zones can be disabled by setting the AC3’s Zone Switch to the off position. Both TTL and manual flash controls are supported.
Flash Power Control without a Camera
Photographers can now
take their AC3 and transmitting radio off-camera and use it to set power
levels for any flash with a ControlTL receiver, making it more
convenient to use an optically triggered light meter, or control the
power levels with just a MiniTT1/FlexTT5 and AC3 in their hand while
another photographer takes the pictures. Previously, an AC3
ZoneController on a MiniTT1 or FlexTT5 needed to be on camera to send
manual power levels to remote flashes. Now, when connected to a MiniTT1
or FlexTT5, manual power levels are transmitted to remote flashes when
the TEST button is pressed even when the transmitter is off the camera.
This affects both speedlights connected to receiving FlexTT5s and larger
flashes like AlienBees and Elinchrom RX units with ControlTL receivers.
Continuous Fast FPS
Never before have you been able to shoot
remote CLS / i-TTL non-stop in continuous high-speed mode. Fill the
buffer! Nothing else comes close.
