PocketWizard Canon MiniTT1 and FlexTT5
Congratulations on your purchase of the PocketWizard MiniTT1® / FlexTT5® Wireless Photo Control System for Canon or Nikon DSLR cameras and flashes. You can use the MiniTT1 Transmitter and FlexTT5 Transceiver to control single or multiple off-camera electronic or intelligent TTL flashes. The PocketWizard ControlTL® System takes the complex TTL data being sent through the camera’s hot shoe and digitally interprets and transmits it as a reliable radio signal. You can now place TTL or manual flashes anywhere to illuminate the scene: Around corners, out-of-sight and in bright sunlight. The MiniTT1 and FlexTT5 are compatible with any PocketWizard radio for triggering manual flash or remote cameras.


The Canon-specific MiniTT1 and FlexTT5 radios work within the Canon E-TTL II system.

The Nikon-specific MiniTT1 and FlexTT5 radios work within the Nikon i-TTL / CLS system.

All references to TTL are exclusively for the electronic or intelligent TTL systems specific to Canon (E-TTL II) and Nikon (i-TTL / CLS), and not film TTL.

The terms Speedlite or Speedlight are used interchangeably throughout this wiki.
