The PocketWizard MultiMax II Transceiver has 112 channels 32 Quad-Zone E-Channels, and 80 Long Range Quad-Zone LR channels. Besides eliminating interference this also allows you to trigger flashes in 4 separate (A, B, C, D) zones when doing multiple setups.

The MultiMax II's extended wireless range allows shooting from distances up to 5 miles!

Long Range Capability

When used in ideal conditions, MultiMax II is capable of producing and receiving a signal 5 miles away in Long Range mode while the older Plus III had a range of just 1600'

112 Channels

With 112 channels, the PocketWizard MultiMax II Transceiver enables you to trigger individual or groups of lights simultaneously or individually. This is critical for working in crowded venues or with multiple lighting set-ups.

Quad-Zone Triggering

You can program up to 4 working zones for remote control of flashes. This allows you the ability to wirelessly activate and deactivate your flashes, enabling you to remain in camera position without having to manually adjust lighting setups. This is ideal for using multiple lighting setups and managing remote cameras as needed.

Auto-Sensing Transceiver

With its patented Auto-Sensing Transceiver technology, the MultiMax II Transceiver may be set to transmit (Tx) or receive (Rx) independently if needed.

Auto-Relay Mode

Using 3 PocketWizard radios utilizing the Auto-Sensing technology, the transceiver mounted to the camera can instantly receive a signal from an auxiliary transceiver, and then instantly convey the transmission to a remote flash.

High Speed Capability

When in High Speed Receive mode, this transceiver is capable of triggering cameras or flashes up to 14.5 fps.

Two-Stage Remote Camera Triggering

The MultiMax II Transceiver is the perfect solution for remote camera triggering. The unique two-stage TEST button on the MultiMax II works just like the shutter release button on your camera. Press it halfway and your remote camera wakes up to meter and focus. Press TEST all the way to take your photo. When released, your remote camera will return to sleep mode normally: a real battery saver.

Simple User Interface and Design

Clearly displayed on a 1" / 2.5cm backlit LCD, all of the channels, zones, and modes can be configured using a soft-touch keypad. The design of the transceiver also incorporates a side-view LCD for easier viewing.

FCC Compliant

This item is FCC compliant and can only be used with corresponding FCC compliant models. Using

question

The manual seems to suggest that for speedcycler mode to work, all receivers as well as the transmitter must be a multimax - that it won't work with other pocket wizards as receivers. Is that true?
Asked by: Glenn
For SpeedCycler, you can use any MultiMAX or a MiniTT1/FlexTT5/FlexTT6 with an AC3 ZoneController as the transmitter. For receiving radios, you can use any radio that has Zones, such as the Plus III, Plus IV, MultiMAX, and PowerMC2. With the ControlTL, you can have 3 Zones and with the original MultiMAX, you can have 4 separate Zones. With the MultiMAX II, you can use either 4 Zones or up to 16 remote groups as it can use Channels instead of Zones. You could also use PlusX or older Plus radios as receivers as well, for up to 10 remote groups.

Will this work with my Profoto D1 and D2s?
Asked by: Thomas
Yes the MultiMAX II can work with the those strobes. With the MultiMAX II on your camera, you will need a PocketWizard radio (any model, on the same channel) attached to the strobes with a sync cable. The MultiMAX II will then trigger the strobes. Note, the MultiMAX II will not trigger the internal Profoto Air radios built into the strobes. But, by using PocketWizard you will get much further range and you can add other lights, not Profoto, triggered with another PocketWizard.

What is the difference between the MultiMAX and the MultiMAX II ... other than the newer, brighter screen and the backlit buttons? Do both work on the same frequencies? Do both have the same modes?
Asked by: Evan
Thanks for asking! The blue backlight LCD provides better contrast for improved viewing and the keypad is brighter as well. The MultiMAX II has all the same features as the original MultiMAX but we have added a couple more. Infinite Intervalometer will let you trigger as long as you like and SpeedCycler can trigger 16 different remotes instead of 4, If you have ControlTL receivers, it can also adjust power to those remotes from your camera's position. They are available in both FCC and CE frequencies so be sure to use the appropriate frequency for your country.

What flashes will this work with ? J. Payne
Asked by: James W
The MultiMAX II radios should work with any flash that can be triggered via a sync cable. They will sync up to your camera's X-sync in manual mode. If you have a specific flash you are concerned about, you can contact PocketWizard directly to verify.

I have a Sekonic L-558 Cine light meter with a Sekonic RT module-32. Will this work with my light meter?
Asked by: Thomas
Yes, it will. If you have the RT-32N module, it uses Standard Channels. If you have the RT-32CTL, it uses both ControlTL and Standard Channels. Either module will work with the FCC MultiMAX II, as long as you have an FCC frequency meter.
