And here’s another with the PocketWizard FlexTT5. This time, I’ve got one on a Canon 430ex BEHIND the bottles, on the floor. The other flash is about 3 feet to camera right - it’s a Canon 580ex iii at 45 degrees up with the reflector card pulled out to push some light forward. Extremely quick setup, perfect execution.
It was only 1/200s exposure, so I didn’t make use of the high-speed sync, but it’s true TTL exposure, which is just cool.
Success with PocketWizard FlexTT5!
OK, so I have my new set, and I am thoroughly HAPPY with them.
I use a Canon EOS 40D, and I set my HyperSync to -2900. Perfect setup.
I have done 1/8000s with both my Photogenic 320ws monolights, as well as with my two Canon flashes (580ex ii and 430ex, the noisiest ones in the bunch. grr).
Range isn’t great with the flashes, due to noise - looking forward to their faraday-cages in a box. :)
Here are a few photos taken with the Canon Speedlite 580ex ii attached to the PocketWizard FlexTT5. I haven’t tried them at long distances yet, but it worked great from within a few feet.
Basically, I was using slick TTL for all of these - sometimes at 1/8000 seconds.
Better than my first set, that’s for sure.
OK, so I had to send my original set back in for replacement. The new set seems quite a bit better. I’m gonna give it another chance - a few samples to come.
