PocketWizard Plus II (433mHz)

PocketWizard Plus II (433mHz)

The PocketWizard Plus II transceiver system does more than cut the cord. The PocketWizard Plus II can wirelessly trigger lights and/or cameras within a range of 1600 feet (488m) of the transceiver. Utilizing advanced wireless technologies, four 16-bit, digitally-coded channels are available for selective firing of lights, or when working in ‘crowded’ environments. If speed is a concern, images can be captured at a rate of up to 12 frames-per-second, which outpaces most currently-available cameras, pro or otherwise. Ultra-fast microprocessors allow for top sync speeds of 1/250th-second for focal-plane shutters and 1/500th for leaf shutters.

The PocketWizard Plus II is compact, with a short, unobtrusive, rubberized antenna. The total height of the transceiver and antenna is less than 6.5”, and it weighs in at 6oz including the batteries. To ensure a secure fit to your camera or bracket, the Plus II features sturdy locking rings for hot shoes. Power is supplied by 2 AA batteries, which are good for about 60 hours of playtime. An optional AC adapter allows for continuous, unlimited shoot time.

NB: Our PocketWizards use the 433mhz frequency which is NOT the same as the US spec PocketWizard which uses 344.04mhz. In Australia the maximum output power in the 344mhz frequency is limited to 10 "microwatt". PocketWizards output at 1 "milliwatt" which renders US spec PocketWizards legally inoperable in Australia. Each PocketWizard is a single unit that acts as either a transmitter or receiver. Two or more PocketWizards are required to trigger off-camera flash units or other cameras.

  • Fast ‘plug-and-play’ set-up times. Simply power up, choose a channel, connect your flash cable and you're good to go.
  • Auto-Sensing Transceiver Technology enables the Plus II to switch back and forth between transmitter and receiver modes as needed for greater flexibility on the job. All PocketWizard transceivers default to receiver mode. When a hot-shoe or other trigger is detected, it automatically switches to transmitter mode.
  • If your cameras and lights will be positioned apart from one another, the PocketWizard’s Auto-Relay Mode wirelessly triggers remotely located cameras and flashes within a 1600’ range of one another.
  • A choice of four 16-bit, digitally coded channels enable you to simultaneously trigger all of you lights at once, or isolate one group of lights from another for more complex lighting arrangements. Multi-channel switching is also useful to isolate your lights from nearby lighting systems when shooting in close proximity to other radio transmitting devices.
  • Sports and action shooters can confidently shoot flat-out regardless of which camera you use, thanks to the Plus II’s ability to trigger your camera at a sustained rate of up to 12 frames-per-second.
  • Ultra-fast microprocessors enable trigger-response times as short as 1/2000th of a second allowing for reliable sync speeds of 1/250th for focal plane shutters and 1/500th for leaf shutters.
  • Miniphone connector cables are available for all major brands of lighting equipment in a variety of lengths of up to 16’. A variety of dedicated camera triggering cables are also available for most popular camera systems.
  • Thoroughly compatible with earlier-version PocketWizard transmitters and receivers.

Equally important is the fact the PocketWizard Plus II communicates fluently with all PocketWizard-enabled photo gear for maximum flexibility on the job.
