The smallest PocketWizard radio ever, the MiniTT1
Transmitter is part of a new generation of PocketWizard radios providing E-TTL
II and power control capabilities with Canon Speedlites and select studio
lights. Your creativity also extends far beyond X-Sync speeds with HyperSync and
FP Sync capabilities.
The MiniTT1 Transmitter locks onto the camera’s hot shoe supporting an on-camera
flash with its own hot shoe while working with remote PocketWizard units.
Remotes can be one or more PocketWizard FlexTT5 Transceivers connected to Canon
E-TTL II flashes or any PocketWizard Receiver for triggering flash or remote
- ControlTL: PocketWizard’s 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 for Canon E-TTL II systems as well as Manual Power
Control. ControlTL firmware is configurable and upgradeable for
“future-proof” continuous improvement. Find more details on ControlTL here.
- Dedicated E-TTL II Triggering: Locking your
MiniTTI Transmitter into the hot shoe of a Canon DSLR camera and mounting
E-TTL II flashes onto FlexTT5 Transceivers gives you full autoflash 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, on-camera
flash or flash commander controls for flash compensation, zone and ratio
- Manual Power Control: Adjust the manual power
settings of your remote Canon Speedlites directly from a AC3 ZoneController,
580EX or 580EX II 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 simply with the dials of the AC3
ZoneController or the user interface on the back of the 580 EX or 580 EX II
flash. Manual Power Control also works with select studio lights when paired
with PowerST4, PowerMC2, or AC9/FlexTT5. Now you can work with total control
with your remote lights, without leaving your shooting position.
- Optimized HSS: High Speed Sync takes Speedlite
flash photography all the way to 1/8000th of a second sync. ControlTL
optimizes this amazing Canon feature and provides more light (which equals
greater working distance), faster recycling times and more flashes per
battery set when shooting in Canon's HSS/FP Flash mode. Use this feature to
shoot wide open in bright sun for amazing results.
- HyperSync: Our patent pending HyperSync
technology allows photographers to achieve faster X-sync speeds with full
power flash. Now you can cut the ambient light and use wide-open apertures,
outdoors in bright sunlight. HyperSync allows you to adjust the timing of
your flash trigger so that faster than X-sync speeds can be achieved. With
certain Canon camera and flash combinations you can achieve sync all the way
to 1/8000th of a second. Just imagine what you can do using flash in bright
sun with wide open apertures and fast shutter speeds. Since HyperSync is a
trigger function you can use any PocketWizard Receiver including the
FlexTT5, PlusII or MultiMAX.
HyperSync works with both TTL speedlites and full size studio flash. All you
need is a MiniTT1 or FlexTT5 on camera that has been tuned to your specific
camera 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.
- High Speed Sync (HSS or FP Sync) Disable Mode.
Select either HSS Sync or HyperSync at shutter speeds at or over 1/640. This
allows you to use HyperSync and the benefit of full power flash all the way
up to 1/8000 with certain flash systems.
- Optimized Rear Curtain Sync: Precise rear
curtain sync capability is engaged automatically, no buttons to press. Set
the shutter speed at which rear curtain sync is engaged with the
PocketWizard Utility. Capture natural light trails with sharp exposures at
the end – no “after trails!”
- Pre-Flash Boost: In some E-TTL situations,
including shooting in full sun, over long distance or using diffusers or
bounce flash, the normal pre-flash is simply not enough for the camera to
see. With Pre-Flash Boost, the pre-flash is two stops brighter. This will
approximately double the working distance of E-TTL II, compensating for the
light loss when defusing or bouncing.
- PowerTracking: When working with the PowerST4,
PowerMC2 and AC9/FlexTT5 paired with compatible manual flashes, you can
change any of your settings on your camera and the system adjusts for those
changes. Change your exposure compensation to adjust the exposure or make
adjustments in aperture or ISO and the system balances your flash for proper
- ZoneControl: Add the AC3 ZoneController on top
of your MiniTT1 and gain three zones of power control right from the
camera’s position. Works in both auto/E-TTL II and manual. Shut down an
entire zone with the flick of a switch.
- Continuous Fast FPS: Radios work a lot fast
then infrared communications allowing you to shoot with remote flash in
E-TTL as speeds close to your maximum frames per second. Never before have
you been able to shoot remote E-TTL non-stop in continuous high-speed mode.
Fill the buffer! Nothing else comes close.
- Built-in Hot Shoe: Lock your Canon flash into
the FlexTT5’s dedicated hot shoe and combine your remote flash with
on-camera flash or use the on-camera flash for additional E-TTL II or Manual
Power Control only. The metal and glass reinforced resin hot shoe assembly
is a superstructure onto itself and incredibly durable. The best part; no
- Basic Trigger Mode: Allows the MiniTT1 or
FlexTT5 to work as a transmitter on ANY camera it will fit. Anyone looking
for the small form factor of the MiniTT1 can use it on other DSLR’s, SLR’s
or even medium format cameras with standard hot shoes. The MiniTT1 and
FlexTT5 are completely reverse compatible with all previous PocketWizards so
they will work with whatever PocketWizards you already own.
- PocketWizard Compatible: The MiniTT1 operates
on the same channels as all other PocketWizards and will work with any unit
you may already have.
- PocketWizard Utility - Programmable and
Upgradeable: Use the supplied PocketWizard Utility software with the
on-board USB port to program the MiniTT1 to any PocketWizard channel and
zone as well as many other custom settings. The MiniTT1 can be upgraded
whenever updates and feature enhancements are available (many planned!).
- Channels / Learn Mode: The MiniTT1 has two
channel configuration settings; C1 and C2. Each can be programmed as needed
with up to 20 ControlTL channels* for TTL photography or Manual Power
Control, or 32 standard channels** for manual flash photography. Channels
can be configured with the PocketWizard utility or use the Learn function to
quickly program channels, or the reset function to configure back to factory
* - 20 ControlTL channels for FCC/IC 344 MHz radios and three ControlTL
channels for CE 433 MHz radios.
** - 32 Standard channels for FCC/IC 344 MHz radios and 35 Standard channels
for CE 433 MHz radios.
- Automatic HSS Trigger Timing for Manual Flash.
This allows you to mix a manual flash with an E-TTL II flash in HSS/FP Sync
shots at 1/640 and above with certain flash systems.
- Auto Trigger Select for ControlTL: The hot
shoe on both the MiniTT1 and Flex TT5 will trigger just about any hot shoe
flash placed into it in addition to the Canon Speedlite’s it is designed
for. Yes, you can now fire just about any hot shoe flash including Vivatar,
Nikon, etc., in manual mode only and not TTL mode. (max trigger voltage <
50V, use P2 port for up to 200V)
- Low-Profile Design: The MiniTT1 Transmitter is
the smallest PocketWizard ever, utilizing an internal antenna and common
coin-cell battery. At just 2.3oz (65 grams) you barely realize it’s on the
- Power Saver: The MiniTT1 Transmitter will go
to sleep 10 seconds after your camera does to conserve energy. Just touch
the shutter button half way to wake both the camera and the MiniTT1. It
works on the supplied CR2450 coin cell battery (or optional CR2354 for in
the field options) that provide hundreds of hours of battery life.
