The Nikon dedicated Pocket Wizard FlexTT5 Transceiver, with its built in hot-shoe and ControlTL firmware, is the perfect addition to Nikon i-TTL II flash systems. The FlexTT5 takes the existing benefits of Nikon wireless systems beyond the boundaries of infrared technology. When paired with the Mini TT1 Transmitter or another FlexTT5 Transceiver, a whole new world of wireless flash freedom opens up. The FlexTT5 is also the perfect Transceiver for your manual triggering needs and works with all MultiMAX channels and many of the MultiMAX advanced functions. More
The FlexTT5’s simple design comes to life through its hot-shoe connection with a camera or flash. Mount a flash or command unit on the FlexTT5 to use the same zone controls and ratio commands as you would normally. The system tracks your changes in ISO, shutter speed and aperture and reacts accordingly to make sure exposures stay right on target. Use the flash compensation dial on your camera or flash just as you would normally and the changes pass seamlessly through the system.
The FlexTT5 has two channel configuration settings; C1 and C2. Each can be programmed as needed with up to 20 ControlTL channels for TTL photography, or 32 standard channels for manual flash photography. The FlexTT5 Transceiver also has a three-zone selector switch for ease of use with Canon zones and ratios.
With PocketWizard HyperSync™ Technology, the FlexTT5 can precisely advance the timing of your flash trigger so that increased flash sync speeds, up to 1/500th of a second is achievable with many strobes.
Need more speed? Push your ControlTL system beyond 1/500th and go into FP/High-Speed sync mode automatically. Simply change your shutter speed to get flash sync all the way to 1/8000th. No buttons to press or settings to change!
A PocketWizard Utility program is provided to support the FlexTT5 Transceiver via a USB port. The Utility allows you to configure your channel settings, dial in your HyperSync timing, adjust your sleep-mode timers as well as update your product to the latest firmware.
For a full, in-depth look at the PocketWizard FlexTT5 for Nikon click here.
The FlexTT5 also has our Auto-Sensing Transceiver Technology that enables it to switch back and forth between Transmitter and Receiver modes as needed for greater flexibility on the job. When a hot-shoe or other trigger is detected, it automatically switches to Transmitter mode. With Auto Relay Mode you can easily trigger a remote camera in sync with remote flash. Put a camera where you can’t be and use remote TTL or non-TTL lighting at the same time. Expand your coverage and increase your creativity.

Using with Elinchrom
I got this to sync with an Elinchorm Quadra eco ring flash with shutter speeds up to 8000th sec. I did hope it would and it does what a relief. I am using them on Nikon D800e and there is no clipping of shuttering of the images. With the TT1 needed to use this setup
Quality in a flash

About Me Professional
Easy to use and very reliable. This unit makes creative lighting control simple.
By Richard [@]
The PW system is great and has added a dimension to my photography. Occasional misfires and questionable power levels, but not too bad to put up with.

Free the Flash
I pondered over my investment in the Pocket Wizard mini tt1 and flex tt5's and i have to say apart from the plastic shoe mounts i have not been disappointed at all. I gave 4 stars because of this, pocket wizards are more or less industry standard bits of kit and in my own opinion should have more durable metal ones, Gripe over ! CLS is great but this is better ! No more line of sight issues, strong sunlight no worries, distance as far as i will ever need. Couple one of these some flex tt5's and an ac3 controller together and you will have great control at your fingertips of flash power and lighting ratios. Easy and quick set up, sync speeds of 1/8000th very happy !!

Long awaited kit
By Jon Allen
Wow, what a wait it has been for the nikon versions. You will just love this kit, works very well with the SU800 commander unit, you can control 3 sets of speedlights at any given time, very easy to set up. TTL works fine. Much more creativeness can be achieved over the infrared, although infrared worked very well for me even in bright sunlight as long as make sure that your have good line of sight. my only minus, is the construction of the units may not impress, especially when compared to a nikon speedlight at roughly the same price. They are still quite new but my units have been in constant use since Christmas 2010Min kit 3 x Flexs 1 x miniTT, perfect set up
Worth the Wait
These really take the reliability of Nikon speedlights to the next level - Infra red TTL signals always seemed to be rather hit and miss if used outside and made one lose faith in their equipment on a shoot. Design quality is good and the units are nice and small so fit in a bag easily. The ability to sit your flash on top of the unit is also considerably better than previous PW incarnations. With the correct connector (PW MM1) they can also be used on Elinchrom lights (BXRi 400s) offering reliable synching way above the normal 1/250th all the way up to 1/8000th. This should work with any slower flash duration (S) heads, but have heard people don't see much improvement on faster flash duration (A) heads. One thing I haven't yet managed is to fire SB900s and Elis at the same time - prob need to play with hypersync offset for this. There is some power loss at higher speeds so you may need to open up the aperture more, but these are leagues ahead of any other brand of radio triggers on the market. Just waiting for the Nikon AC3 now....
Nikon Flash just got much better
By Andrew [@]
from Buckie, Scotland
The PocketWizard FlexTT5 for Nikon has been long awaited but well worth the wait. Used with the MiniTT1 and the Nikon SU-800 Commander you can control up to 3 groups of Nikon flashes (ie. SB-800) without the reliability issues of the infra red remote link. You now have the flexibility to use Nikon superb flash system in bright sunlight and/or without line-of-sight. The only issue is that you must first switch on the camera, then the MiniTT1/FlexTT5 and then the Speedlight flash. This is especially important when you move the MiniTT1/FlexTT5 between camera bodies.
Long time coming but worth the wait
Nikon users have waited for what seems like an age for this product. Wireless triggering has come in a variety of forms b4 the Pocketwizard graced our brand of camera, however i would say well worth the wait. The coverage indoors and outdoors is excellent, it works with Nikon's TTL excellently as well as in manual which is my preferred method. I've used this on shoots where the infra red has stood no chance, but these PW's fire consistently. I have tried other brands b4 and always received a refund as they misfire and have short ranges, if you want the best I thoroughly recommend these.
