      A must have if you have a compatible Sekonic meter and use PocketWizard TTL triggers. Works as advertised. My main complaint is that the documentation is poor. Also the channel numbers on the meter don't match the PW channel numbers. A table on a small piece a paper provides the translation. Be sure to make a copy as I could not find it online.

      I got this module to work with my Sekonic L-358,Canon 580-EX II, and my Pocket Wizard Flex TT5/Mini TT1. I had hoped to be able to use the TTL function through the meter. Setup was as easy as plugging the module into the back of my meter. However, once it was plugged in, it would fire the flash couple of times and then not at all. Sometimes it would fire at once and then quit. If I moved out of line of sight or farther than 8 feet away it would not work at all. I had my Mini TT1 in my hand as well. It fired the flash (with the Flex TT5 attached) every time. I'm not sure if it is because of transmission problems with the module, or if they are still attempting to solve firmware problems as this is a new product. I was trying to operate in basic function mode (non-TTL) and it was still inconsistent.
      I think I will go back to my RT-32 module. It doesn't work TTL but at least it is consistent. The last thing I need on a shoot is to try to figure out why my flash meter isn't triggering my flash is consistently.

        Comments about Sekonic RT-32CTL Radio Transmitter Module:

        I upgraded my Sekonic L-758DR with the new RT-32CTL radio transmitter. I found it frustrating when using the PocketWizard FlexTT5's with the lightmeter as the old RT would not fire them. Now, it does not matter which PocketWizard model I use or which channel, the L-758 will fire them all. It makes my strobe set-up quick and easy with the light meter.
        The RT was very easy to upgrade - no tools needed - and it worked perfectly the first time. If using the CTL PocketWizards, this RT is a must.

            The RT-32ctl works very well. Don't buy it to trigger any thing but the pocket wizard. With pocket wizard it works really well.

            Comments about Sekonic RT-32CTL Radio Transmitter Module:

            Sekonic L758DR is suppose to be able to trigger Pocket Wizards remotely and to turn on and off different groups of speed lights. I bought this to be able to trigger my Nikon SB900 flashes remotely, be able to change power output of the flash via the pocket wizard flextt5/mini/AC3 and to do it in both camera sync speed and high sync mode. Neither Sekonic nor Pocket Wizard web sites are comprehensive enough to get the proper settings for both modes of operation. Calls to Sekonic (Pocket Wizard has the same phone number for customer support) got the proper settings for the Sekonic to trigger the PW at regular sync, but could not get Sekonic to trigger the PW units when PW were set for high speed sync. Unable to change power on the pocket wizard in high sync mode. Pocket Wizard WIKI provides some help but the only way I could get results was to use their software to set the pocket wizards to factory default. This left me w/o ability to change speed light power out in high speed sync mode. I was using latest software for both Sekonic and PW.

                Finally, this makes the L758 work seamlessly with PocketWizard Flex TT5 and AC3! No more half-baked configurations. No more climbing up to your flashes to manually adjust the power. It's the module that Sekonic should have made in the first place. If you have an older Sekonic with module, or one that doesn't have the module to begin with, this is for you.

                  I use it for my Sekonic L358 to trigger my flash using my Flex TT5. As easy as it may look on youtube video but it's not working properly. It will trigger my flash once and that's it. If only Sekonic and Pocket wizard will come up with a better video including set-up, life will be easier.

                    I'm one of those old timers who still uses a light meter and the Sekonic along with the RT-32CTL unit makes taking flash exposure much easier when using pocket wizards radio controlers.

                          I am glad I got this for my Sekonic L 358 light meter. I was looking for a Sekonic RT and found that Sekonic had release a new product some time ago. I had to found out more on the product on the internet and watch 2 videos on on Youtube and I was serprise to find that the Sekonic RT -32CTL Module can be use any where in the world which was good since I live in Australia. I came here B&H and decieded to buy it. The delivery took about a week to get here and was all good. I put it in my L-358 light meter and it took a while to learn and is working great!! with my pocket wizards FlexTTL5 and MiniTT1. I am glad to have this and it is easy to use in most photographic work.

                                Comments about Sekonic RT-32CTL Radio Transmitter Module:

                                I have recently changed radio triggers from Cactus V5 to Pocketwizard PlusX so in order to set lighting ratios easier I bought the Sekonic RT-32CTL trans module. I use this in a Sekonic L-358 meter and it has made setting up more efficient. The only quirk the L-358 has changing the channel for each flash. Fortunately, most of the time I only use one flash so it's only a minor problem if more are used plus on the PlusX's all of the channels have to be reset to a common one. This doesn't seem to be a problem with the Plus III's but since my daughters gave me the Pocketwizards as a gift I can easily live with it.

                                    Kind of disappointed when the received transmitter didn't work, but Sekonic didn't hesitate to have me send it in for a replacement. Love it now!

                                      I bought this to use with my Sekonic L-358, I have the pocket wizard system and this addition to the light meter makes using the off-camera flashes a breeze.

                                          Allows the use of my Flex units when triggering strobes for metering purposes. If you don't have any TT5's I don't think you'll have any need for this upgrade. Easy install and be sure to update your firmware.

                                            This does just what it needs to. Could not be a simpler process. Pop it in to the back of the Sekonic and it fires the Pocket Wizards.
