Pocket Wizards vs. ....well, EVERYONE else

Today, Pocket Wizard has announced the release of two new radio transmitter/receivers ...the MiniTT1 and the FlexTT5. These guys are the latest in Pocket Wizard's lineup of wireless radio frequency triggering devices. Unfortunately, these triggers only work with Canon cameras, but a Nikon set is on the way. This agitates me a bit since I am a Nikon guy, but since the pin design on Canon and Nikon cameras/flashes are different, I understand why they have to have separate devices for each line of camera (guess they're saving the best for last huh?) =)

The new transmitter/receivers will enable TTL commands and high speed syncing, all controlled from the camera! The pricing will be a little higher than the already existing Pocket Wizard Plus IIs but with full TTL control and the ability to high speed sync, I can see these giving Radio Popper and a handful of other radio trigger manufacturers a run for the money.

Also, check out the review by David Hobby on the Strobist blog.

Just one more thing to consider in the world of RF triggering devices... great. =)
