Today’s photographers need an edge, and there’s no
other product that can give you the creative freedom of a
PocketWizard radio. We’ve torn down technical barriers,
enabling you to position flashes and cameras in the right
places to get the right shots at the right time – without the
inconveniences and limitations of wires.
PocketWizard radio systems enable wireless triggering
between all components of your photographic system, no
matter how simple or complex your remote triggering needs.
With a PocketWizard radio, remote triggering of cameras
and flashes is as easy as pushing a button.
So simple, so advanced: The PocketWizard Plus II Auto-Sensing Transceiver
is the go-to trigger for reliability and range. Beautiful in its simplicity, the
Plus II automatically switches from receive mode to transmit mode, reliably
triggering lights and/or cameras up to 500 meters (1600 ft) away.
Utilizing advanced digital technology, four, 16-bit, digitally coded channels
are available for selective firing of flashes or remote cameras. Images can
be captured at up to 12 frames per second.
The PocketWizard Plus II Transceiver offers great flexibility and ease of use
for photographers who demand a reliable wireless solution to plug in, turn
on, and shoot.
Channels = More Creativity
Reliably trigger all of your flashes or cameras at once or isolate groups with the PLUS II’s four, 16-bit channels.
Trigger Times and Extended Range
Trigger flashes or cameras at sustained rates of up to 12 fps at ranges
up to 500 meters (1600 ft)
• A Transmitter AND a Receiver
Auto-Sensing Transceiver Technology enables the Plus II Transceiver to automatically switch between transmit mode and receive mode for ultimate flexibility.
Communicates with all PocketWizard-enabled photo gear and is
compatible with virtually every major camera and flash system.
Features & Functions:
Fast ‘plug-and-play’ set-up
Simply turn on, choose a channel, connect your flash cable and you’re ready
to start shooting.
Auto-Sensing Transceiver Technology
The Plus II automatically switches back and forth between transmit mode
and receive mode as needed for greater flexibility on the job. All PocketWizard
transceivers default to receive mode. When a hot shoe or other trigger is
detected, it instantly switches to transmit mode. Auto-Sensing may be disabled
if desired.
Auto-Relay Mode
Photographers can trigger a remote camera in sync with remote flashes.
A camera mounted Plus II transceiver relays the triggering signal to remote
flashes and/or other remote cameras.
Four, 16-bit, digitally coded channels
A choice of four, 16-bit, digitally coded channels enables you to simultaneously
trigger all of your lights at once, or to isolate one group of flashes from another
for more complex setups. Multiple channels allow you to isolate your flashes for
exclusive triggering when shooting in close proximity to other photographers
with PocketWizards.
Trigger Rate
Trigger flashes or cameras at a sustained rate of up to 12 fps.
