Hey guys, I’ve decided to sell off one of my PocketWizard Mini TT1 transmitters. I’m only selling because this is a second one that I don’t necessarily need. I already have 4 TT5’s and 4 MC2’s for my Einstein strobes. Originally I purchased it because I often shoot events with 2 bodies and did not want to keep switching the transmitter from body to body when shooting. Since I rarely use all of my pocketwizards all at the same time, I’ve found that I’m fine with just using one of my TT5’s (they’re transceivers) — I purchased the second TT1 because I thought the size of the TT5 would be cumbersome, but it’s not too bad.
If you’re unfamiliar with the differences between the TT1 and their other products (MultiMax, PlusII, PlusIII), I suggest you read up on it, but i’ll summarize the major points of interest from their site below:
- ControlTL. The new PocketWizard ControlTL™ System interprets the complex E-TTL II data being sent through the camera’s hot shoe and digitally transmits it in a reliable radio signal. Change the flash compensation dial on the camera, and those commands pass seamlessly through the system to your remote flash. Adjust your aperture or ISO and the system corrects for those changes. Add the PocketWizard AC3 ZoneController to easily adjust up to three zones of light independently, in both E-TTL II or manual, with six stops of power adjustment.
- HyperSync. HyperSync Automation Technology that allows camera sync well above your standard x-sync limitation with full power flash. HyperSync Automation automatically adjust 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, PlusIII or MultiMAX.
- FP/High-Speed Sync. Shoot at any shutter speed with compatible E-TTLII flashes. With radio wireless, how you can use this amazing feature in bright daylight automatically. No buttons to press or settings to change other than your shutter speed will give you flash sync all the way to 1/8000th.

$150. Less than a year old, I’m the original owner, and it’s in great shape. However, I do not have the box, CDs, or manual for it. The manual and software can easily be downloaded and printed off of the PocketWizard site, which I will do for the buyer.
