The PocketWizard PlusX Transceiver is a versatile radio trigger that features a wealth of functionality within a simple-to-use and intuitive design. This transceiver offers 10 standard channels from which to use, and navigation between these channels is easily controlled by a backlit channel dial. These 10 channels are fully backward-compatible with all other PocketWizard radios and PocketWizard-enabled devices for maximum efficiency with existing radio setups. Contributing to its functional abilities, the PlusX also features intelligent Auto-Sensing technology, which allows the device to instantly fluctuate between transmitter and receiver duties. Auto-relay is also supported in order to promote a completely remote workflow.

The PlusX design revolves around an internal antenna and side-profile design that contribute to overall durability and a streamlined appearance. This minimal design aesthetic is also benefitted by the simplified connection strategies that allow the radio to be fully functional when attached to a camera's hot shoe, without any cabled connections required. For attaching to remotes and external lights, a 3.5mm miniphone socket is available and three cables are included to offer an array of popular connection types.

This item is FCC compliant and can only be used with corresponding USA FCC compliant models. Using this item outside of the United States may be illegal. B&H is not responsible for any fines, fees, or penalties that may come from inappropriate spectrum usage.

10 Standard Channels

The PlusX features 10 standard channels for use to provide greater availability when working amongst other photographers or for greater control over complex lighting situations. These channels are compatible with all other PocketWizard of the same frequency.

Backlit Channel Dial and Status Indicator

An analog dial is used to quickly and easily switch between the 10 available channels. A full-time amber backlight is used to illuminate the selected channel for convenience and greater visibility when working in dimly-lit conditions. A tri-color LED is also incorporated into the design and provides a visual means for gauging the PlusX battery life when it is sending or receiving a transmission.

Internal Antenna

The internal antenna provides greater durability and eliminates the possibility or bending or breaking it during use. It also produces a more streamlined appearance when in use, and corresponds well to the side-profile design to create an overall visually unobtrusive look.

Simplified Connectivity

The transceiver is easily attached to most cameras through the hot shoe, with no extraneous cables required. For attaching to remotes and lights, there is an all-in-one sync port for wide compatibility. Cables are included for attaching from miniphone-to-miniphone, miniphone-to-phono, and miniphone-to-PC sync for cameras without a hot shoe. It is also compatible with all PocketWizard transmitters and receivers (of the same frequency) as well as PocketWizard-enabled lighting and metering equipment.

Auto-Sensing Transceiver

The PlusX is automatically set to intelligently and instantly switch between transmitter and receiver modes for the greatest amount of flexibility. You can also manually override this function and choose to have it act as a dedicated transmitter only, which will cancel its ability to receive or relay signals.

Auto-Relay Mode

When using three PocketWizard radios, you can remotely trigger a camera to fire and trigger a flash simultaneously. 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. This provides a simple and highly efficient remote workflow.

Range and Sync Speed

When used in ideal conditions, this transceiver is capable of producing and receiving a signal up to 1600' away. It supports sync speeds up to 1/250 sec. with focal plane shutters and 1/500 sec with leaf shutters with a maximum triggering speed up to 14.5fps.

Is this works with Mamiya RZ67 and Godox SK300II strobe?
Asked by: Safwan
Yes, it will work to trigger the flash up to the camera's X-sync. The flash appears to have a 3.5mm sync port so you can use the included cable from the PocketWizard. Any power adjustments would be made on the flash itself.

I have Photogenics Power Light 1250 and use the canon Eos 1-dx Eos 1ds Mark 3 and ds Mark 2,can these cameras fire the strobes if I have the Wizard connected to their hot shoes?? Also where do I find the sync cord for my Norman power packs 400 and 500?
Asked by: Arthur
The setup should fire just fine. If your packs have a household style sync port, you can use the PocketWizard MH1 or MH3 or the Impact version listed below.

will this work on a Canon t7, the t7 doesn't have a universal hot shoe pin and its been a pain to find a transceiver that has the four pins.
Asked by: Crystian
Unfortunately, since Canon did not put a center pin or PC port on the T7, there is no way to trigger a PocketWizard. You can trigger the camera remotely with PocketWizards, via the remote port, but you will not be able to trigger a remote flash.

I want to to control 2 speedlights using a film camera, how is that works?

For best results, you should use one PlusX in the camera's hot shoe and one PlusX connected to each speedlight. You will need a total of 3 PlusX radios.
