(as of Mar 15, 2021 13:23:43 UTC – Details)
For the past 30 years, PocketWizard has been the gold standard of radio triggers with unmatched reliability and range. The PocketWizard company is based in Vermont, USA and most PocketWizard models are made in the USA. PocketWizards are used around the world by professionals for remote camera and remote flash (off-camera) control. The radios communicate with a unique and uncrowded radio frequency to reduce the possibility of missed shots due to interference. Newly introduced, the E Series radios are even more resilient to noise and offer communication at extreme distances.
You need at least 2 radios to work: one as a transmitter and at least one as a receiver. Most units are labeled as “transceivers” because they can act as both a transmitter and a receiver. You don’t need to limit yourself to just one receiver, you can use as many receivers as you want. Which means you can have as many remote cameras and as many lights as you want. You are only limited by your imagination.
With PocketWizard you can:
Easily trigger off camera flash for the most pleasing light.Get creative using remote cameras for unique perspectives.Remotely trigger a remote camera in sync with one or more remote flashes.Use the most reliable 344 Mhz frequency and avoid the noisy and crowded 2.4 GHz frequency.Incorporate multiple lights from many different brands.
PocketWizard Makes it Possible!
Trigger wireless lighting and off camera flash in the studio or outdoors to overcome the sun. Use as many lights as you like and arrange them in zones for the ultimate in versatility.
Show a Unique Point-of-View
Put your camera in locations where you can’t access, down low, up high or in tight spots for a totally unique point of view. You can even use an off-camera flash with your remote camera.
One Click, Multiple Perspectives, Multiple Options
With one click of the shutter, you can capture multiple viewpoints. That means that you can be your own second shooter and all the images will show your artistic vision.
