|Note: The FlexTT6 was created to make the newest generation of Canon cameras (such as the 1DX Mark II and 5D Mark IV) compatible with our ControlTL system. The difference between the FlexTT6 and FlexTT5 is a circuit board hardware change. The functions of the radios are identical. Any information or videos you see, with the exception of compatible cameras, is identical between the FlexTT6 and FlexTT5. To use a FlexTT5 with a FlexTT6, the FlexTT5 will need to be updated to firmware version 6.905 or later to function properly.|
