Default For Sale Pocket Wizard Flex TT5 High Speed Sync Transmitter/receivers

For Sale 2 Pocket Wizard Flex TT5's FOR CANON

These transmitters let you shoot remote flash while being able to shoot about the factory 1/250th shutter speed. They will trigger each other or other Pocket Wizard Plus IIs, or they can be used as receivers with the Mini TT1 on camera.

I also have the Pocket Wizard AC5 RF Soft Shield for $15 brand new never used. This is used with the 580EX II to help with RF interference.







They are used, and have some cosmetic wear, but are 100% in working order, I just no longer use them. I use the TT1 and PW Plus II's. These have been in my bag for a year now and have not been used.



Looking for $150 each.

$229 New on B&H, Heres link to there for specs

Would these be ok with a 430 EX II?

Yes although they have the RF problem with them,

"While the FlexTT5 works ideally with many older Canon flashes, the 580EX, 580EX II, and 430EX emit strong RF noise across the PocketWizard's frequency range, and this significantly reduces out-of-box range performance of the FlexTT5 Transceiver. In PocketWizard's research, the interference from the flash varies wildly from sample to sample; they can only guarantee that the flash will work to ~30' (~10m) in all conditions. Purchase of the AC7 RF Shield (BH# WIAC7) increases performance of these flashes considerably"

Which you can use the shield with...

They work GREAT with manual Flashes.
