So Simple, So Advanced

The PocketWizard Plus III™ transceiver is beautiful in its simplicity. The Plus III is an "auto-sensing" transceiver which automatically switches from receive to transmit as needed and reliably triggers lights and/or cameras up to 1600 feet away.

Utilizing advanced digital technology, four, 16-bit channels are available for selective firing of lights or remote cameras. Images can be captured at up to 12 frames-per-second, faster then any current DSLR. Ultra-fast microprocessors allow for top sync speeds of 1/250th-second for focal-plane shutters and 1/500th for leaf shutters.

The PocketWizard Plus III transceiver offers great flexibility and ease of use for photographers who demand a reliable wireless solution to plug in, turn on and shoot.

•Fast ‘plug-and-play' set-up. Simply power up, choose a channel, connect your flash cable and you're good to go.
•Auto-Sensing Transceiver Technology enables the Plus II transceiver to switch back and forth between transmitter and receiver modes as needed for greater flexibility on the job. All PocketWizard transceivers default to receiver mode. When a hot-shoe or other trigger is detected, it automatically switches to transmitter mode. Auto-Sensing may be disabled if desired.
•Auto-Relay Mode allows photographers to remotely trigger their camera(s) and a camera-mounted Plus II transceiver relay the triggering signal to remote flashes and/or other remote cameras.
•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 lights from another for more complex setups. Multi-channel switching also helps to isolate your lights when shooting in close proximity to other photographers.
•Capable of triggering lights or cameras at a sustained rate of up to 12 fps; faster then the best DSLR today.
•Ultra-fast microprocessors enable trigger-response times as short as 1/2000th of a second allowing for reliable sync speeds of 1/250th for focal plane shutters and 1/500th for leaf shutters.
•Miniphone connector cables are available for all major brands of lighting equipment in lengths of up to 16'. Dedicated camera triggering cables are also available for all popular camera systems.
•Thoroughly compatible with earlier-version PocketWizard transmitters and receivers.
•Durable, compact design with an unobtrusive, rubberized antenna. The total height of the transceiver and antenna is less than 6.5", and it weighs in at 6oz including batteries.
•A sturdy lock-ring for hot shoes ensure a secure fit to your camera or bracket or use the ¼ 20 mount or lanyard.
•Power is supplied by 2 AA batteries, which are good for about 60 hours. An optional AC adapter allows for unlimited shoot time.
•PocketWizard transceivers operate on uncrowded radio frequencies to reduce misfires and interference.
•Compatible with virtually every popular flash and professional camera system.
•PocketWizard Plus III communicates with all PocketWizard-enabled photo gear including select Profoto, Dynalite, Norman and Photogenic flash and select Sekonic light meters.
