The PocketWizard Plus III Transceiver is the most reliable, feature-packed, easy-to-use solution for remote flash and camera triggering available.

The Plus III Transceiver features an impressive 32 channels. Whether you're a wedding or sports shooter or working in a busy studio, finding a clear channel is never a problem. Selective Quad-Zone Triggering, a feature once reserved for elite photographers, adds four zones enabling photographers to remotely trigger flash and or cameras in groups or individually. For photographers being asked to do more for less, this added flexibility is a huge competitive advantage.

The Plus III is simple to operate. The soft-touch keypad is large and intuitive and a beautifully backlit LCD panel displays everything you need to know. All of this is presented in a sleek, side-view design which reduces the viewing obstruction while conveniently positioning all controls. The precision-tuned antenna is housed inside the case of the radio for better durability.

The Plus III adds to the legendary Plus reliability with a working range that will meet photographer's everyday needs. For more challenging environments or distances, there are two added features to improve range and reliability. Long Range Mode (LR) will roughly double the working range and is ideal for remote camera triggering. Repeater Mode (RP) allows the addition of one or more radios in between the transmitting and receiving radios to overcome distance, obstacles or other interference. RP mode works well for both remote camera triggering and remote flash triggering.

Like the Plus II, the Plus III is an Auto-Sensing Transceiver which means it will automatically switch between transmit and receive as needed. This is very useful when syncing remote cameras to remote flash. When the receiving radio on a remote camera receives a trigger, it can automatically engage Auto-Relay Mode and send a trigger signal out on the next higher channel. This triggers remote flash completely in-sync with the remote camera.

Remote camera users will love the new Two-Stage Trigger feature. The TEST button on the Plus III acts like a camera's shutter release with "half-press". Use this unique feature to wake, focus and meter a remote camera before triggering. Pressing TEST all the way triggers the remote camera. Also, with a Plus III on a hand-held camera connected with a PocketWizard ACC cable to the motor-drive port, that camera's shutter release will also wake and prepare a remote camera for shooting. With remote camera triggering you can deliver two or more images for every push of the button and capture multiple angles all at the same time.

Of course, the Plus III is reverse-compatible with all PocketWizard radios, making it the perfect addition to existing gear. It is especially well paired with the MultiMAX which has the same set of 32 channels and four zones.

The Plus III can fire at sustained triggering rates of up to a blazing 14.5 frames per second. Two AA batteries can power the Plus III up to 50 hours and when needed for remote camera triggering, it can be powered with an external battery through the Mini-B USB 2.0 port. The USB port can also be used for firmware updates.

Whether new to remote triggering of camera's and flashes or a top professional pushing gear to the limits, the Plus III's reliability, simplicity and performance make it the perfect tool for the job. The Plus III is the new standard of excellence.

Features:
  • 32 Channels - Featuring 16 standard and 16 Quad-Zone Triggering channels, finding an open channel to use is simplified and efficient. Switching between channels is accomplished with one-touch operation.
  • Quad-Zone Triggering - You can program up to 4 working zones for remote control of flashes. This allows you the ability to wirelessly activate and deactivate your flashes, enabling you to remain in camera position without having to manually adjust lighting setups. This is ideal for using multiple lighting setups and managing remote cameras as needed.
  • Auto-Sensing Transceiver - When set in TxRx mode, the transceiver is able to instantly switch between transmitter and receiver modes for the greatest amount of flexibility. You can also manually override this and choose to have it act as a dedicated transmitter or receiver.
  • Auto-Relay Mode - When using 3 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 simplistic and highly efficient remote workflow.
  • Long Range Capability - When used in ideal conditions, this transceiver is capable of producing and receiving a signal up to 1640' / 500m away. When conditions are not ideal for a long range transmission, Long Range mode can be used to nearly double the effective range of the signal. There is also Repeater mode, which will repeat the signal several times, increasing the possibility of a successful transmission at long range.
  • High Speed Capability - When in High Speed Receive mode, this transceiver is capable of triggering cameras or flashes up to 14.5 fps. Normal performance also permits triggering up to 12 fps. It is also capable of sync speeds up to 1/250 sec. for focal plane shutters and 1/500 sec. for leaf shutters.
  • Simplified User Interface and Design - Clearly displayed on a 1" / 2.5cm backlit LCD, all of the channels, zones, and modes can be configured using a soft-touch keypad. The design of the transceiver also incorporates a side-view LCD for easier viewing and an internal antenna for a less obtrusive appearance.
  • Wide Compatibility and Connectability - 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. The Plus III is powered by 2 x AA batteries and can be kept up to date with firmware updates utilizing the USB port.
