PocketWizard MiniTT1 Radio Transmitter for Canon TTL Flashes and Digital SLR Cameras – Product Description:

PocketWizard MiniTT1 Radio Transmitter for Canon TTL Flashes and Digital SLR Cameras – Review:
We finally had a shoot where I could try these babies and they worked perfectly. I realize by reading the reviews here that others have had multiple issues with mis-firing or them simply not working at all and was surprised to find no problems whatsoever. Now our shoot was close knit and maybe long distance is the problem – I really couldn’t say. In terms of technical specs etc well there’s more verbose reviews that expertly go into the PWs and their operations. So rather than go all nerdy I felt it worth stating that we went in expecting trouble and instead finished a shoot an hour early. Highly recommended.
