AC3 ZoneController for Canon
PocketWizard introduces the AC3 ZoneController, the latest accessory for the Pocket Wizard MiniTT1 and FlexTT5 Control TL radio system
Simply slide the AC3 ZoneController into the shoe of an on-camera PocketWizard MiniTT1 or FlexTT5 and control three or more remote Canon speedlites mounted FlexTT5 transcievers. Three zones, marked A, B, and C, correspond to Zone Switch settings on the receiving FlexTT5 units. Each zone has a Mode Switch that enables manual or automatic flash control or switching off a flash completely. Clearly marked dials allow increasing or decreasing the power of each flash in 1/3-stop increments over a six-stop range.
Remote flashes need only to be ON and set to ETTL and the corresponding zone set on the FlexTT5 you wish to control. Photographers can switch back and forth between auto and manual flash control and use both for the same shot, all right from the camera's position.
E-TTL II Compatibility: Using PocketWizards ControlTL system, the AC3 is designed to work seamlessly with Canons E-TTL II system. It removes operating complexity with its easy-to-use design. Nikon i-TTL version coming soon.
Three Zone Control Control up to three zones of light, each with one or more flashes, right from the cameras position. Set zones to manual, auto, or switch any zone OFF. Settings can even be mixed between zones.
Wide range of control: With three simple dials, you can quickly adjust the power settings for three independent zones in clearly labeled 1/3 stop increments over a six stop range. In Auto mode, the dials act as flash exposure compensation. In manual mode, +3 on the dial indicates the flashes maximum power level. Adjusting the dial down controls power in 1/3 stop increments for up to six stops of control
Studio Flash Compatibility: When used with the PocketWizard PowerST4 Receiver for Elinchrom RX, the ower levels as well as modeling light function can be controlled by the AC3 and PocketWizard ControlTL system. The AC3 can also use to control Canon E-TTL flashes or any PocketWizard triggered flash as well.
