PlusX 2 Pack

PlusX 2 pack. Love these pocket wizards for my Canon 5D Mark IV and the mini cable works nicely on my elinchrom HD 500 strobe light. Great trigger every time.

Fills a needed flash void

I have Nikon flashes and Commander, but there are situations where the infrared is inadequate to fire my flash, so I thought I would give the Pocket Wizards a try, Intitially, I was concerned since it sometimes required two actuations to get the flash to fire. Silly me; the flash units were going into sleep mode in a relatively short time, and had to be awakened. Since I resolved that problem, the Pocket Wizards have performed flawlessly. I even tested them at 40 yards through a wooden fence, and a concrete block wall, behind the line of sight. Worked great! I haven't tried to see how far away I can get, but I expect it's a long way in open conditions.

So far so good. Pretty straitforward and simple. It is nice to have some analog gear in a digital world.

All you need is four AA batteries and you're good to go! I've had no issues using these to connect my camera to an alien bee strobe head. I highly recommend this product for both professional and hobbyist photography.

Great Equipment Simplified

My 15 year old PocketWizards took a dive into a puddle so I had to replace them. These are a great replacement for anyone who doesn't need all the bells and whistles and just needs super solid equipment to sync strobes consistently and dependably.

I bought this at the recommendation of B&H, and it works perfectly. I greatly appreciate the helpful staff.

I asked B&H for advice on triggering my old studio flash unit with the Hasselblad 907X. This 2 pack PocketWizard was recommended. The price was very reasonable, and they work perfectly.

I assume the trigger is not camera specific. I want to use with my Fujifilm X100V ?
Asked by: Kenneth
Correct. As long as the camera can be triggered by a single pin port and/or the flash can be triggered by a sync cable, the radio should be compatible.

Are these camera brand agnostic? Planning on using these on my Sony A7II and my Broncolor Strobe Power Packs. That being the case can these also work with Large Format Cameras with PC sync cords to trigger my Broncolors too?
Asked by: Jurgen
The PlusX radios will work with virtually any flash or camera that can be triggered by a hot shoe or sync port, in manual mode, up to the camera's X-sync.

question

Does this product work with TTL for Nikon cameras?
Asked by: Anonymous
The PlusX units are not TTL. For TTL, you would need the Flex and Mini units from PocketWizard (#WIFTT5N and #WIMTT1N).

question

I have canon 550ex. will plus x2 work and what kind of cables and adapters do I need ?
Asked by: Anonymous
You would connect one PlusX to the hot shoe of your camera, and connect the second PlusX to your Canon 550EX Speedlite Flash via the PocketWizard HSFM3 Flash Sync Cable (3'), B&H # WIHSFM3. With this setup, when both units are on the same channel, you press the shutter button on your camera and it would wirelessly trigger your speedlite.
