Product Highlights
  • On-Camera Hot Shoe
  • 32 Channels, Multi-Zone
  • High Speed Sync up to 1/8000th Sec.
  • Triggers all PocketWizards
  • USB Upgradeable

The PocketWizard MiniTT1 Radio Slave Transmitter is part of an ultra-versatile radio slave system, and is dedicated specifically to the Nikon i-TTL flash control system. It simply slides directly into the camera's hot shoe, and there are no special settings to make or modes to call up. Use the camera, on-camera flash, or flash commander controls for flash compensation, zone and ratio control. It supports single or multiple dedicated flash units.

The MiniTT1 is the ideal addition to any Nikon i-TTL flash system. It works in combination with the FlexTT5 Transceiver, and since this system works on digital radio technology, it can support i-TTL operation around corners, out-of-sight, or in bright sunlight.

2 Channel Settings + Learn Mode
Each setting can be programmed to support up to 20 ControlTL channels for TTL photography, or 32 standard channels for manual flash photography. The FlexTT5 Transceiver also has a three-zone selector switch, which integrates with Nikon zones and ratios. The Learn Mode allows the unit to detect the channel used by any other unit in the area.
Reverse Compatible
Operates on the same channels as all other PocketWizards and will work with any unit you may already have.
HyperSync & High-Speed Sync Technology
Supports flash sync speeds of up to 1/500th sec. High-Speed Sync auto syncs flash system with the camera's shutter speed setting, up to 1/8000th.
Built-in Hot Shoe
Features a hot shoe on the top, so that you can still mount a flash unit directly onto the camera. This allows you to combine your remote flash with the on-camera flash, or use the on-camera flash for additional i-TTL control only.
Low-Profile Design
The MiniTT1 lies flat to stay out of the way and uses an internal antenna.
Configurable and Upgradeable
The MiniTT1 features a mini-USB port, which makes it upgradeable and "future-proof" for continuous improvements and compatibility upgrades.

    I did a lot of research before purchasing the PW system. I've coupled this mini TT1 with a Flex TT5 and it works....most of the time. Despite a whole lot of testing and re-testing I still couldn't get rid of an occasional misfire. This isn't a deal breaker but for a product that is premium priced I would've liked to get closer to 100% reliability. It is most critical that you power up the PW system as they recommend and make sure batteries are in good shape.

    In contrast, the Nikon remote CLS never failed to fire as long as I stayed within the capabilities of that system. Still, for very long range and for total out-of-sight remote placement, the PW system does work; albeit for a premium. I would recommend with the above caveat.

    I just purchased the FlexTT5 Transceiver and MiniTT1 Transmitter Radio for Nikon i-TTL Flash and recently used them on a portrait shoot. I was using a Nikon D7000 and SB-900 and placed the flash within 15 feet of the camera, I experience about 30% failure of the flash to fire upon shutter release. I updated the firmware and reviewed my settings. Pocketwizard does not provide live tech support. I will keep trying, I should have purchased the well tested PlusII>

    Comments about PocketWizard MiniTT1 Radio Slave Transmitter for Nikon i-TTL System:

    Multiple off camera flash set ups are a breeze with the PocketWizard MiniTT1 with a AC3 ZoneController on top of it. Three banks of flashes can be independently controlled from the camera. Along with digital preview on the camera lighting set ups have never been easier. There is no longer any excuse not to have great lighting on every shot I make.

          Comments about PocketWizard MiniTT1 Radio Slave Transmitter for Nikon i-TTL System:

          As a Strobist disciple, I debated long and hard about which radio triggers to go with after finally getting my flash off camera and realizing the limitations of IR/slave activation. I considered the PlusIII's, Poppers and Phottix, and finally decided on some TT5's and the TT1 (and a Plus III for an old SB28.)

          Out of the box and updated, every piece worked like a charm. After several weeks of use, not one problem yet with misfire or fail. I am thrilled with the versatility.

          I can understand the concerns with durability/ruggedness, but with reasonable care I don't see these units as any less forgiving than any other piece of photographic gear.

          Others have recommended using a TT5 on the camera in place of the TT1 for versatility and battery consistency. I would suggest the opposite- the TT1 is sleek and low profile (just looks better on the camera.) The TT1 makes a great, easy to conceal remote camera trigger (with a PlusIII or TT5 on the camera.) The battery lasts far longer than AA's, and you can carry a 10 year supply in the space of 4 AA's. No big deal.

          In spite of the fact that I find myself shooting in manual rather than TTL most of the time, I'm very happy I went with the TT1/TT5 option instead of straight manual triggers. I also purchased the AC3 zone controller, which has been great, again for manual settings.

          If you are agonizing over the purchase, just do it. I wish I had pulled the trigger (pardon the pun) a long time ago. Totally worth it!

          Easy set up and works like a charm, but all pocket wizards items are extremely fragile. The hot shoe fixture cracked within 2 days and was not dropped! :-( Pocketwizards should use as more durable plastic!

              I like this a lot! I purchased it with the flex. I would have liked to also get the controller for the top of the mini, so you can adjust without walking over to the flash unit, when it is on manual mode. Great buy! Looking forward to using during wedding receptions.

              My first shoot was outdoors on a cold, bright winter day. SB-900 with TT5 on a light stand with the TT1 on camera. I had read reviews and watched some videos on setup. I did the test shot as advised and went to work. With just a few exceptions the flash exposure was great. The fill lighting was there as always, but having the flash off camera added a dimensionality to the lighting that I didn't get with on-camera flash. No problems with batteries in the cold, though it was out of the box new so I really didn't expect any.

              The MiniTT1 is the compact Radio Slave Transmitter that performs well. It doesn't do much, but what it does do, it does extremely well. Capturing all of the TTL data, it is a perfect pair with the FlexTT5 units. Used in conjunction with the AC3 Zone Controller, you have a powerful setup.

                      I bought this slave in combination with two PocketWizard FlexTT5s, and it was worth the money spent. Very easy to use: Just slip it on the camera shoe, turn it on and make sure each flash was on the same channel. I added the PocketWizard AC3 Zone Controller to allow me to adjust lighting as needed, and everything worked just like the flashes were attached to the camera. Awesome product.

                        I've used both the optcal and infrared triggers built into the Nikon Strobes without issue, but haven't tried doing it outdoors in bright sunlight. I have had issues where the strove was in a softbox or needed to be behind me (especially with the SU-800, which can't be 'pointed' like a strobehead can). I purchased this and a Flex for each of my Speedlights to extend my range and provide out-of-sight flexibility. I'm still figuring these highly configurable and functionally complex units out. The PocketWizard TV has some excellent (and entertaining!) videos about using the equipment. Out of the box (probably not the best way to use) I was getting sync problems (black bars) in the frame at X-sync of 1/250th on my D3s. It disappeared at 1/200th. I think this is probably user error, however, and I've just not had the chance yet to do more experimentation. I'm happy to have these as part of my arsenal for both studio and location (speedlight) use. The Pocketwizard Utility provided to program the units is well done and easy to use.

                            My Nikon flash units work as described, however I forgot the "has to be within eyesight of each other" to work. That's hard to do when you have your flash set up behind your subject or around a wall. The MiniTT1 takes care of that. This is a must have if you shoot off camera flash photos.

                              Use this device along with several Flex TT5. Great as a portable flash solution. Works as advertised and better than some products i have used.

                                I love the low profile on the camera, and the flexibility of using my flash either manually or TTL.

                                I did some research before purchasing this along with the FlexTT5 and by following the instructions on PocketWizard's tutorials I have avoided all of the negative problems people have reported in their reviews. I use fresh batteries; I turn on the equipment in the order suggested; I take a calibration shot; I take care not to bring the camera too close to the flash. If I pay attention to those things, the flash fires 100% of the time. (Until it overheats--it's an SB-900).

                                    I used this along with a FlexTT5 to control an off camera flash with either an umbrella or a softbox which I also purchased at the same time. This was my first experience with radio triggers and I was a little nervous about figuring out the whole thing and getting going with it. My stuff arrived on Friday and I had a shoot that weekend. I plugged it all up and was off and running in no time with very little "learning" or "figuring it out" time. Full TTL and the pictures came out great. Overall, well made and basically either as "plug and play" as you want them to be, or as customizable as you might want them to be. Great product.

                                    I have a nikon d600 with 2 sb700s and a su800. I can honestly say that when paired up with the flex tt5 this system is outstanding with a 100 percent accuracy. The only gripe I have is that when using my d600 at or below 50 percent battery power the high speed sync is no longer active and is limited to the camera's 1/200 sync rate, good thing I have 5 batteries for my camera. Besides that this system rocks.

                                      This is my first time using Pocket Wizards and the way this utilizes Nikon's iTTL off camera is great and SO SIMPLE. I love a product that works out of the box w/very little reading. I've used these on wedding shoots and outdoor portraits for fill flash--game-changer in both situations. It's added a new dimension to my work. A+!

                                      I'll add that I've tried the FlexTT5 on the camera but felt it was too bulky. This little yet powerful MiniTT1 is definitely the way to go.

                                        The reason why I purchased the mini and not another flex is because, you will always need a transmitter,, so why not go with the mini instead of having the bulkier flex on top of your camera,, the only thing I wish is that it uses normal batteries like the AAA,, cause I have a million of those,, instead of working on those oversized watch batteries,, other than that,, thing works great
