Review this page for information about the Nikon Df and its performance with PocketWizard radios.

Df Specific Operational Considerations

The following operational considerations apply only to the Df.

Camera Firmware

For best results, use the latest camera body firmware.

The latest firmware for the Df is C:1.01, available for download at Nikon USA and Nikon EU.

Flash Sync Speed - Custom Camera Setting

When using the Df and ControlTL radios the camera's "Flash Sync Speed" setting must be set to "1/200 s (Auto FP)." This setting can be found in the "Bracketing/Flash" Custom Settings menu. This is different from other Nikon cameras, which require a Flash Sync Speed setting of 1/250 s (Auto FP).

Frame Clipping

Some clipping may occur at fast Rear Curtain Sync capable shutter speeds, for example 1/125, or at some High Speed Sync (HSS) shutter speeds if a MASTER Speedlight is in use on-camera and all 3 remote zones are engaged. This will not occur when using an AC3 ZoneController.


HyperSync Performance

Sorry! We don't have any HyperSync results available for this camera yet. To share your own, please contact PocketWizard tech support.

Learn how to configure your radios for best HyperSync performance on our HyperSync Setup page.
