PocketWizard PocketWizard Plus X


PocketWizard PLUS® X Transceiver

The Perfect choice for entry-level wireless shooters as well as current Plus-Series owners, the Plus X is the simplest PocketWizard ever.

This auto-Sensing Transceiver features 10 channels, and new, side-view design. A large dial with backlit numbers makes channels setting easy. An internal-antenna design makes the Plus X more compact and rugged. Auto Relay mode triggers remote camera which in turn triggers a remote flash in sync. Transmit-Only mode is helpful when shooting in large groups using PocketWizard radios. Large, soft-touch TEST button makes hand operation positive and easy.

The PlusX is compatible with every PocketWizard FCC radio and all PocketWizard-enabled studio flash units as well as Sekonic light meters. Powered by two AA batteries, the Plus X comes standard with basic connecting cables for many popular flashes.
