PocketWizard’s newest firmware platform taps into the camera’s digital communications to enable an entirely new level of remote flash capability through our proven radio system. ControlTL allows remote TTL systems as well as Manual Power Control. ControlTL firmware is configurable and upgradeable for “future-proof” continuous improvement.

Dedicated TTL Triggering

Locking your MiniTT1 Transmitter into the hot shoe of a Nikon DSLR camera, and mounting flashes onto FlexTT5 Transceivers, gives you full flash exposure control with the freedom and reliability of a PocketWizard radio. There are no special settings to make or modes to call up. Use the camera’s flash exposure controls for basic control of remote flashes, or add an AC3 ZoneController or Canon/Nikon Master unit for even more flexibility.

Manual Power Control

Adjust the manual power settings of your remote Speedlights directly from a AC3 ZoneController, or master flash mounted on your on-camera MiniTT1 or FlexTT5. You can independently control the power output of up to three remote groups of lights (you can have as many lights in each group as you want) from full power down to the lowest setting through the user interface on the back of the master flash or with the dials of the AC3 ZoneController. Now you can work with total control with your remote lights, without leaving your shooting position.

High Speed Sync (Auto FP)

When HyperSync can’t keep up, High Speed Sync takes over for Speedlite flash photography all the way to 1/8000. ControlTL gains faster recycling times and more flashes per set of batteries when shooting in Auto FP / HSS Flash mode. Use this feature to shoot wide open in bright sun for amazing results.



Our patent pending HyperSync® technology allows photographers to achieve faster X-sync speeds, up to 1/500th of a second, with full power flash. That extra speed can be used to freeze action or cut ambient light - both of which can produce results never possible before. HyperSync works with both Speedlights and full size studio flash. All you need is a MiniTT1 or FlexTT5 on camera that has been tuned to your specific camera and flash via the PocketWizard Utility. While performance varies by the camera and flash equipment being used, HyperSync will get the maximum possible out of any set-up.



When working with certain manual flashes, you can change any of your settings on your camera and the system adjusts for those settings. Change your camera's exposure compensation to adjust the flash output, or make adjustments in aperture or ISO and the system balances your flash for proper exposure.
