I’ve been reading coverage of PocketWizard’s just-announced FlexTT5 and MiniTT1 RF transmitter units, and I just have to say: “wowza!”

David Hobby has a fantastic write-up available over on Strobist, which gives as much information on these as you could possibly want, and I have to say I’m really excited. Faster sync speeds (1/500s or 1/8000s in FP mode), firmware updates, smaller profile, hot shoes, hooray!

Plus, they’re backwards compatible with the existing II+s, which means I don’t have to scrap my existing investment, making me a very happy camper. I was planning on picking up another PW unit sometime in the near future, and now I guess I’m just going to have to wait until March 1st to put my order in.
