PocketWizard MultiMax 32 overview

  • 1Description

The Pocket Wizard MultiMAX features "Wireless Transceiver Technology", which eliminates the need for separate transmitter/receiver triggering configuration. Each MultiMAX provides the capability to send and receive digital signaling by a flip of a switch, similar to personal communicators.

Through its use of advanced transceiver technology, the MultiMAX offers true triggering confirmation feedback up to 1600 feet away without the need for signal repeaters or daisy-chained radios. In the "Selective Quad Triggering Mode", the MultiMAX automatically confirms (on the selected transmitter) every zone simultaneously, with immediate visual and audible feedback. Using the optional Flash Confirmation Cable, the transmitter receives a visual and audible signal, confirming that a triggered flash actually fires. Finally, there's a real confirmation system which reassures the photographer that everything is working.

The MultiMAX comes loaded with "Trigger Time Control" software. This software package offers several tools for the working professional all in one small package. With this software, it's easy and very convenient to create rear-curtain sync effects with any camera, add depth of field using multipop mode and record events as they unfold using the intervalometer mode.

Other standard features of the PocketWizard MultiMAX are up to 1600 foot triggering range, 32 digital 16/24 bit coded channels, 1/1000 flash sync speed (in fast mode), contact closure adjustment, trigger counter and much more. Also, Wireless enabling / disabling of camera pre-release setting has been added (and new cables for this pre-release feature).

    PocketWizard MultiMax 32 reviews

    MultiMax 32 Channel Transceiver Radio Slave is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 45.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from great radio slave Even I said the radio slave is great, still you must be carefull where you point the anthenas to and how close the receiver is from the transmitter, when close to each other ( 1-5 feet) units tend to misfire, so you have to change positions of the slave to get the reception fix, at a hall, if there is steel in the walls or close to the music dj, tends to misfire as well. Nevertheless, it is great and reliable, easy to use and the best, you have control of all your remote units, you can choose which to trigger with just the touch of a button compared to the regular unit that pocket wizard sells which you can not control all your units independently.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Device I purchased this item about 1 week ago, i use it with mylightings Hensel Expert Pro Plus.First Impression is can't be happier than this, really agreat device for triggering the lights indoors or outdoors,it is important for most photographers who would like to usetheir lights anywhere with good control.Maybe it is difficult to use from first time but after awhile no problem to get used to it, i HIGHLY recommend it. Expertise: Advanced Problems Encountered: First time the Menu is not user friendly, but with the timeit is normal to set the menu.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellant product! I'm a firm believer in buying the best and having all the bells and whistles available to me, because it's inevitable that, one day, I will regret not having them. There has not been one electronic product that I have had in my life that I did not upgrade. Stereo's, camera's computers, . . you name it cost me a lot more money in the long run. Did I need the MultiMax 32 channel Transceiver at this time? No! But I'm glad I bought it. It's amazing and flawless. Tons of options that I won't use now but, as our business grows, I can already see a need for some of these extra features. The only complaint that I have is that it's a little weak on the shoe mount. You can crank it down as tight as you can and it still wiggles a little on the camera body. (Canon 5D) But that's it. I love this product and you will to. Here's two things you should know. You have to buy two wizards two trigger the flash units but not two MultiMax's. Just get the Plus II as your second one. Also, the jack that comes with your Pocket Wizard probably won't fit into the back of your strobe. I had to go to an electronics store and buy one for $5.00. Not a big deal. You will have a male end that goes on top of the wizard and another male end that plugs into the back of the strobe. So, you need two male ends on one cord. The cord you receive does not have it set up that way. Look now at your strobes and plan accordingly. I highly recommend the Pocket Wizard.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Radio Slave The Pocket Wizard radio slaves are the best wireless units for remotely firing your strobes or camera. I have 4 multimax's and 8 plus II's and use these all the time. We will have up to six camera stations going at once and with the ability to select a number of different channels to keep everyone on a unique frequency is imperative. The work without ever an issue. My only gripe would be that you need to be careful of your camera when these are on the hotshoe as it is easy to kick these off and break the hotshoe attachment, otherwise these work perfect.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pricey, but worth it! Pocket-Wizards are the 'de facto' of the industry. They work well with other devices and are extremely reliable. I like the fact that the MultiMax versions allow us to control so many sets of lights. Additionally, shooting in busy arenas or events can create problems when too many photographers use the basic versions. The extra money spent gives me peace at mind since I have no worries about shooting anywhere, at any distance, and without doubt of my equipment.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Versatile But Expensive I purchased two of these Transeivers to use shooting sports and other events. I haven't used them much yet. The system does what it is supposed to by setting up one to transmit with one camera and the other to receive with the other. Firing the transmit sends a signal to the receive which fires the other. You need a cable matched to the camera you are using to reveive the signal. This is another expense which does not appear in the manuel, so overall the setup cost me about $670.00. In addition I bought a Gorillapod for an additional $100.00. All in all this gets expensive, so you should think it is worth it and will get considerable use of it. Product support was fairly good.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic I use this in conjunction with Standard Plus II Tranceivers. If I am only triggering a few lights, i use the multimax for the extra functionality of the quad triggering. If I need more units, I mix them with the Plus II's until I get all of my units replaced with multimax units. Absolutely love them. the only downside is once you use one of these sets, you'll be addicted and start replacing all of your triggers with multimax units.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from The alternatives may be all you need I have been a user of these for a couple of years havingmoved from the Quantum 4i. I also have experience using the4 channel version, and will likely put a review there as well.I am a pro wedding shooter doing 40-50 weddings every yearso work equipment hard. The strengths are that you can control several lights byputting them into four banks. So if a light is behind yoursubject it is easy to turn off the offending light. Thereare ways to work around this but this is not a photo tutorial. They have a huge range compared to their competitors,however I do not need the range. Sports shooters will likelylove this but the range is not necessary in a ballroomAs a heavy user I have found problems and these will be inthe next section. Expertise: Globe trotting professional wedding photographer Problems Encountered: While heavily featured (I gave it 5 stars for this) thereare some glaring problems. Of the 10 units my friends and Iuse, TWO (20%) have had problems and malfunctioned withinthe first year. My Quantums have never missed a beat hereother than a loose cable which was easy to solder back (onthe quantum)They use EXPENSIVE proprietary connectors. There is NO PCsync style terminal on the unit, instead you have to usetheir proprietary pin system. This pin system pokes out andeventually wear and tear can make this a faulty connection.I tape wires and plugs on at an angle now so as to make afirm connection. The Quantums have a PC sync. These unitsshould come with this very common terminal. Therefore Ibelieve the unit is poorly designed. Remember I have shotabout 100 weddings with these so I qualify to diss the unit.Frankly, for 90% of my shooting the MUCH cheaper quantumsare the way to do. IF these units had a built in THREADED PC terminal like myQuantum set I would be very happy with them...however asthey do not I will not be buying these again. The Quantums are a better deal. I hope someone from pocketwizard reads this and redesigns them. Lastly, the Quantums are shaped better...these are bulky.Unless you buy a very expensive mount (I have yet to findthe perfect one and money is NO object in my line) it isvery easy to knock the buttons.
