Rob Galbraith: Casting light on the PocketWizard MiniTT1 and FlexTT5
LPA Design has taken the wraps off two additions to its line of radio remote flash and camera triggering devices. Called the MiniTT1 transmitter and FlexTT5 transceiver, they offer wireless TTL control of Canon (and soon Nikon) flashes with some clever twists, a way-cool technology dubbed HyperSync that allows for higher flash sync speeds, new compact shapes (the MiniTT1 is particularly small), user-updateable firmware, interoperability with existing PocketWizards plus superb triggering reliability. We've been shooting with beta units for some time, and can sum up the experience like this: these are killer new tools for the working photographer. Here's a detailed look.
