Posted on Aug 08, 2014 in News: Camera Accessories, PocketWizard



Latest TTL firmware updates expands extensive list of compatible cameras, making PocketWizard more in sync with what today's photographers are shooting with.

LPA Design, manufacturers of PocketWizard Photo Products, the world leader in wireless control of cameras, flash lighting and flash power control with Sekonic light meters, has announced a new update to its ControlTL Firmware for both Nikon and Canon versions of its MiniTT1 and FlexTT5 radios.

Firmware version 3.700 for Nikon includes compatibility with the recently released D810, D610, D4S and other Nikon cameras. Additionally, firmware version 6.700 for Canon now provides TTL compatibility with the Canon 1D X, 6D and T4i as well as other recently released Canon cameras (Refer to the compatibility list below). Any current owner of the ControlTL system can easily install this version via USB and update for free using the PocketWizard Utility. The PocketWizard Utility version 1.54 or later is required before installing this update.

“Not only are we now compatible with all current Canon and Nikon DSLRs, we’ve added resources to our firmware department allowing us to have a significant breakthrough in firmware development. We can react much more quickly to newer cameras entering the market,” said Heather Ambrose, Marketing Director at LPA Design, the company that manufacturers PocketWizard Photo Products. “We received a Nikon D810 two weeks ago and our firmware engineers got right on it. A focused look under the hood and they found that the camera behaved similar to the D4S. After a few iterations of firmware, combined with comprehensive testing, it was determined that the D810 could be added to the current firmware release. This is by far the fastest turnaround we’ve been able to achieve, and we hope to keep this momentum going.”
