High Quality Cable

I bought this cable for two reasons: #1: Trigger a 6D from a longer range than the infrared remote, and #2 A wireless remote for an EOS-1V.

I bought this cable for two reasons: #1: Trigger a 6D from a longer range than the infrared remote, and #2 A wireless remote for an EOS-1V.

While I've got 600EX-RTs, which do work as a remote camera release, an issue is that they are large and you've got to deal with blocking the light somehow. This cable is used with PocketWizard PlusX units, and these are much smaller and save me from having to deal with light at all.

I'm very happy with the construction of this cable - although I could deal without the gold color of the connector. It fits great and I'll be able to use this for a long time to come.

      Even though the Plus II's (discontinued) were not listed under the compatibility, they do work well with my 6 Plus II's.

      So I thought I was purchasing a pre-switch that will keep my camera awake, but this just connects the camera with the pocketwizard. Oops.

          Comments about PocketWizard CM-N3-ACC-1 Pre-Trigger Remote Cable (1'):

          This enables me to remotely trigger my Canon 7D with the use of the Pocket Wizard Flex TT5 or TT1. I usually place the camera in places that might be distracting to run around with a camera...primarily used during weddings behind the bride and groom. Sometimes during the ceremony the couple faces away from the audience so, this is a great way to be two places at once. I usually keep the smaller TT1 in my pocket to trigger the TT5/Camera.

          Not So Great: sometimes when you first plug it in...it will cause the camera to trigger several times. I usually turn the camera off then back on and the fixes the problem.

              Keeps your camera awake so you never miss a shot. I left my camera set up for close to 30 mins to try and see if it would fire as soon as I hit the remote and it did. Works great.

                          Fires mark III remotely with wizards. With Plus III's you'll get pre-trigger to focus as well.

                              i use this to remotely fire my camera when me being behind it is not an option. or when i want to avoid camera shake when shooting products and doing macro shots.

                              iit works flawless every time.

                                Use it to fire a second camera when shooting on location
