PocketWizard has an exciting new upgrade for their Plus III with the introduction of the Plus IIIe Tranceiver that features 112 channels and an (E Release) extended maximum wireless range of up to 5 miles!

The Plus IIIe has a total of 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. Auto-Sensing automatically selects the transmitter or receiver mode appropriate to the setup. Auto-Sensing also works in tandem with Auto-Relay mode to allow you to trigger a remote camera along with remote flashes. Two-Stage Triggering technology wakes and focuses your camera when partially depressing the test button, then fires it by fully depressing the button. The original Plus III was known for its long 1600' triggering range but the Plus IIIe's extended wireless rage allows shooting from distances up to 5 miles!

Good news for photographers, the Plus IIIe and Plus IVe are compatible with each other out of the box, but "non-e" Plus IVs and Plus IIIs can be upgraded by PocketWizard for a small charge. If you purchased "non-e" versions on or after 9/1/2019, the upgrade is free.

Long Range Capability

When used in ideal conditions, this transceiver 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 Plus IIIe 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 Plus IIIe 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 Plus IIIe Transceiver is the perfect solution for remote camera triggering. The unique two-stage TEST button on the Plus IIIe 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.

PocketWizard Plus IIIe Reviews

Worked with my ancient Novatron

By Fred
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2021-11-07

I just splurged and bought a Sony a7R IV. I'm retired but back in the 80''s I had a wedding photography business and I still have a big old Novatron power pack that I never got rid of. I decided to see if it still works. Unbelievably PocketWizard has a cable that interfaces from their transceivers to the ancient household socket on my Novatron (MH1) , so I bought this kit with the two transceivers and convenient storage bag. I can't believe how cool the pocket wizards are. Their user interface is totally intuitive, and they popped my strobes every time (I was actually amazed that the power pack still worked). I bought a Vello hot shoe adapter to mount the transmitter to the Sony Multi-Interface Shoe. Put my camera in Manual Exposure and Manual ISO mode, set the speed below synch, set the ISO like film, took a reading with my old incident light meter, set the aperture - and perfection. You will have to download the user manual PDF, but I'd rather have it electronically anyway.

Not a plug and play for older equipment

I've always loved my Pocket Wizard as a pair with the MC2 and my Einstein light heads. I had a little trouble setting this one up because of some updates needed to operate. After spending some money and downloading the newer installs, it still didn't talk to my 5d mark iii. I ended up downgrading it to previous firmware, which was a bummer, but it still works great.

A Must Have

By Erik

I am a longtime amateur photographer. With three children I have stepped into the role of taking all the pictures one normally would pay someone else to take. In that vein, I have tried to up my game, and get a little more work done without the benefit of an assistant. In my opinion the pocket wizard takes the place of at least one assistant. I initially bought a set of two, and then came back and bought a third one. I now use it to trigger my camera primarily, and I also use it to trigger flash units. Everything functions as advertised, and they are a huge work and time saver for me. I don't know how I got along without them to this point. But I will always have at least a set of pocket wizards with me for any type of shoot. B&H is my go-to for new equipment. They seem to have everything, have great tutorials, and quick shipping along with reasonable pricing.

Nice Kit

I love these transceivers. They triggered my speed lights every time - I mounted one on each of my flash units and one on my camera. For all of the channels and zones, this is a good deal!

I was pleased they held up in the super humid conditions. Sometimes it took a bit of trouble shooting but they worked well.

It is good but overkill for me

By Aldridge

First it works great no complaints about that. I misread the capabilities of the product, it seems you need 2 to get full functionality. I have the Plus II, Plus x units. In order to use Plus IIIe I have to download the software that will allow me to use all these units. So really did not need to buy this. If I'm wrong in my conclusion please let me know.

Wondering what cables I would need to go with two of these to remotely tirgger the shutter of a Nikon D850 (if that's possible)?
Asked by: Stephen
You can use the N10-ACC or N10-ACC-1. The first is a 3' cable, better if you might position the camera in a tricky place and need to put the radio in a different position, the other is a 1' cable. The Plus IIIe will pre trigger the camera when you half press the test button but if you want to keep it constantly half pressed, you can add the PTMM adapter. You can also add more Plus IIIe radios to remote flashes if you want to remotely trigger the camera AND remote flashes at the same time with the special Relay mode. https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/search?Ntt=n10-ACC&N=0&InitialSearch=yes&sts=ma

With the Plus IIIe radios, you can actually connect the PocketWizard to the PC port on the body or the lens and it should trigger a remote PocketWizard with no issue.

Will the pocket wizard plus 3e work with the discontinued plus 3?
Asked by: Steven
Yes, though not quite out of the box. You will need to do one of two things to make them work together. You can either upgrade your existing (Legacy) Plus IIIs to take advantage of the new firmware protocol or you can downgrade the Plus IIIe to the Legacy firmware.

Will this work on Samsung NX1 with Samsung SEF-580A flash? I know TTL won't work, but I'm interested in triggering, Manual HSS, and power control functions. Please advice.
Asked by: Karthik
The PlusIIIe can be used with virtually any camera or flash that can be triggered by a single pin or sync cable. As long as the NX1 can send a trigger through it's main center pin contact on the hot shoe, it should be able to trigger a Plus IIIe in its hot shoe. That flash does not appear to have an external sync port but if it can be triggered via the single center pin contact, you can add a product like the HSFM3 cable: https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1000498-REG/pocketwizard_804_419_hsfm3_flash_sync_cable Note: HSS and power control require TTL communications, even in manual mode. The Plus IIIe can only sync up to X-sync and power levels need to be set manually on the flash itself.

Do they work with Profoto acute packs? If so, how?
Asked by: Stefan
Yes! If your flash has a built in PocketWizard receiver, you will need to downgrade the firmware on the Plus IIIe to the Legacy firmware to make the radios compatible with each other. If you're using a Plus IIIe as both the transmitter and receiver, you just need to use the correct sync cable. The Plus IIIe will come with a miniphone to miniphone cable and a phono to miniphone adapter.

Will this work with my Nikon d6?
Asked by: michelle
Yes, The Plus IIIe will work with virtually any camera or flash on the market that can be triggered by a single pin hot shoe or sync ports, including the D6. If you wish to trigger a remote flash from the camera, you can either connect the transmitting Plus IIIe to the camera's hot shoe or via the included PC cable to the camera's PC port. It will trigger a remote flash in manual, up to X-sync. If you wish to remotely trigger the camera, you will need to use an N10-ACC cable connected to the remote camera port.
