PocketWizard presents a complete wireless triggering solution with the Plus IIIe 2-Transceiver Kit. Each transceiver comes factory-loaded with an exciting new upgrade for their Plus III that features 112 channels and an (E Release) extended maximum wireless range of up to 5 miles! A bag is included with the kit for storage and transport.

The 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. 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!

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.

My PocketWizards

I've been using these transceivers for over 15 years now, never an issue that's not man-made. I have twelve of them now and they come in handy on my youth sports picture days when I have multiple camera setups.

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

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.

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.

when it comes to radio transceivers you can not beat PocketWizard. These transceivers are easy to set-up and use.

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.

Does this trigger work with the Hasselblad X1DII?
Asked by: James
Yes, it does, either for flash or remote camera triggering. To trigger a flash, you can use either the PC port or the hot shoe. If you wish to trigger the Hasselblad remotely, you should be able to use the CM-E3-ACC cable: https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/633054-REG/PocketWizard_802_456_CM_CE3_ACC_Pre_Trigger_Cable_for.html

Asked by: Safwan
The PocketWizard Plus IIIe 2-Transceiver Kit will work with Sony cameras using the Sony multi interface shoe. For Sony cameras with the older Minolta Type shoe you would need the Sony Auto-Lock Shoe Adapter linked here to use the PocketWizard with the camera. https://bhpho.to/3vYbXKF. The Yongnuo YN560-IV has a PC sync port that can be connected to the PocketWizard with the cable included with the PocketWizard.

Which cable would I need if pairing this receiver to the Sony A7C mounted via hot shoe. I can't seem to identify which cable is compatible and required since the A7C only has USB Type-C or Micro HDMI for interface options. Please forward the SKU. Thank you!
Asked by: Tim
No. The radios would need a hardware change to be able to trigger it via the USB Type-C connection.

The Plus IIIe radios are a great option for the Canon mirrorless cameras. You can use them to trigger a flash or add a remote camera cable and trigger your camera remotely.

Two questions: Will these work with older PWs? And the PW website says they've been tested and worked out to 3 kilometers (5 miles). I'm pretty sure 3 kilometers is around 1.8 miles...so can I assume the shorter, non-parenthetical distance is the right one?
Asked by: Guy
Hi Guy - The Plus IIIe comes with the E Release firmware factory installed. If your older radio is a Plus, Plus II, MultiMAX, or something even older, then you will have to downgrade the new Plus IIIe to the Legacy firmware in order to communicate with your older PocketWizards. Downgrading is easy using the PocketWizard Utility available at wiki.pocketwizard.com. You will be able to upgrade again at any time, and you may do this as often as you like (at no cost). However, if your "older" radio is another Plus III, Plus IV, or FlexTT5 for Nikon, those can be upgraded to the E Release firmware. Go to wiki.pocketwizard.com for more information. We are working on updates for the MultiMAX II and other Flex radios. Thank you for catching our math conversion error! We will fix that. We actually were able to transmit and receive from a distance of 5 miles - line of sight! We had one radio on a hilltop and another radio on a boat in the middle of a lake!

Is this works with old Film cameras with hot shoe mounts?
Asked by: Safwan
The Plus IIIe radios will work with virtually any flash or camera (including film cameras) that can be triggered by a hot shoe or sync port, in manual mode, up to the camera's X-sync.

Does it work with Nikon Z6 II?
Asked by: Michael
Yes, the Plus IIIe radios work well with the Z6 II and can sync a flash up to X-sync. Be sure the hot shoe is not disabled (there are a few settings that turn it off) If you want to remotely trigger the camera, you will need the N-MCDC2-ACC cable: https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1000492-REG/pocketwizard_802_503_n_mcdc2_acc_1_pre_trigger_remote_cable.html

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
