Well, at PocketWizard right now we’re all caught up with the excitement of the new Mini/Flex system but we certainly don’t want to ignore the hard-working, dedicated photographers like Mark who not only have to work long hours but sometimes have to do it with the flu and bronchitis. The good news? The new system works with all your existing PW’s. Scroll down in Mark’s blog to see how he set up the remote cameras and how it translates into pix his editors appreciate.

New PocketWizard MiniTT1 and FlexTT5 Announced at WPPI Press Conference

Waiting to get into WPPI

The crowd was thick outside the doors of WPPI this morning as we held a private press conference to reveal the PocketWizard ControlTL series MiniTT1 and FlexTT5.

One shot of the MiniTT1 in the wild:

Dave Schmidt presented the new, exciting products to an audience of press and influential photographers. Here is what he has to say for the blog:

Today is the day.  We’ve been sweating it out behind the scenes getting everything ready for a while so it’s great to finally tell the world what we’ve been doing for the past couple years….yes, the new products are new from the ground up and have been in development for quite some time.

We also know there will still be a ton of questions.  There will be updates on the blog and tweaks to the website over the next several days so please check back.  There are also a few reviews posted (yes, a few lucky souls got a peek at the stuff before the rest of the world). Check out:

The big question is how much?  We only have pricing for the USA which will be roughly $199 for the MiniTT1 and $219 for the FlexTT5.

More to come.
