Nikon Users

Using Nissin with ControlTL Radios

The Di622, Di622 Mark II, Di866, and Di866 Mark II for Nikon are not currently compatible with ControlTL radios (such as the MiniTT1 and FlexTT5) in their default settings.

Nikon users may be able to use Nissin speedlights with their ControlTL radios configured for Basic Trigger Mode. Please be aware, in Basic Trigger Mode all ControlTL features are disabled. TTL, remote power control, and High Speed Sync/FP will be unavailable. In this configuration you will need to adjust power settings on the back of the speedlights manually.

You can read more about Basic Trigger Mode on this page.


Using Nissin with Standard Channel Radios

The Di622, Di622 Mark II, Di866, and Di866 Mark II for Nikon can be used in their manual modes with all Standard Channel PocketWizard radios, such as the PlusX, Plus III, and MultiMAX.
