PocketWizard PlusX Transceiver


When PocketWizard asked if I wanted to do a review of their PlusX Transceiver, I jumped at the opportunity.PocketWizard has long been the professional standard when it comes to off-camera flash triggering.

PocketWizard PlusX


The PocketWizard Plus X is an easy-to-use wireless flash trigger, but it if you need to control the power your flash outputs, you'll have to look elsewhere.

Easy to use. Versatile. Syncs at high speeds. Uses standard AA batteries. Relay mode. Compatible with other PocketWizard systems

Big. Cannot act as flash mount. No TTL support. Pricey

The PocketWizard Plus X ($99 list) is a wireless transceiver that allows you to trigger a remote flash, and can also perform a few other neat tricks. It automatically detects whether it's attached to a camera or to a strobe, and with the right cable...

Product Review: PocketWizard PlusX


Wireless radio flash photography just became a lot more affordable.

Easy to use; same internal guts as more advanced PocketWizards; lowest cost PocketWizard; plays nice with other PocketWizards

No TTL; fewer channels; you’re out of luck if you don’t have a miniphone outlet on your flash

If you’re just getting started in wireless flash and don’t mind setting your strobes manually, or if you’re a pro who wants to build your system without breaking your budget, the PocketWizard PlusX is well worth your consideration.
