New added features for Canon and Nikon Firmware: 

  • Added Support for the Sekonic RT-32CTL module:

The new firmware improves the functionality between the new RT-32CTL Sekonic Transmitter module and the MiniTT1 and FlexTT5 radios. Using the new RT-32CTL module in the Sekonic L-758D/DR series light meters (with firmware update) or L-358 light meter, along with the MiniTT1 and FlexTT5 (with firmware update), provides triggering of both Standard and ControlTL channels.

(both L-358 and L-758DR shown on the right)

  • Added Optimized Rear Curtain Utility Control:

Optimized Rear Curtain Sync has been added to the PocketWizard Utility under the Flash tab, it offers improved timing control when using manual shutter speeds that delays the flash to the very end of the exposure. Rear Curtain effects are much cleaner and defined with virtually no ghosting in front of the moving object, which is a vast improvement over the Canon automatic system.


PLEASE NOTE: The new firmwares require that you use PocketWizard Utility version 1.35 or later. It is available for download here. Upgrade to the latest Utility first, then upgrade your radios’ firmware.

When updating the firmware in both Canon and Nikon MiniTT1 and FlexTT5 radios, it is necessary to update all radios to ensure predictable operation. Mixing various firmware versions will not allow units to operate correctly. All PocketWizard radios with a USB port can be easily updated to the latest firmware using the PocketWizard Utility.

Note for Canon Firmware 6.150: Previously used settings or saved profiles cannot be automatically reloaded after installing the new 6.150 firmware. Make sure to copy down any important settings before loading the firmware because the PocketWizard Utility will perform a factory reset once the installation is complete.
