Setup for Remote Flash Triggering
Connect a Plus II Transceiver to the camera using one of the following methods: Option 1
Slide the Plus II Transceiver into the cameras hot shoe and tighten the hot shoe nut.
C onnect the PC1 sync cable (included) from the cameras PC terminal to the port labeled CAMERA / FLASH.
Remote Flash Setup
Connect the Plus II Transceivers FLASH port to the flash units sync terminal using:
a)he correct PocketWizard flash sync cable for best results. t - or b) our flash units original sync cable and a PC female adapter y (PocketWizard part number MPCF (804-605)). You may have as many remote Plus II Transceivers on the same channel as you would like. Connecting 2 flashes to a single Plus II Transceiver will not work. See NOTE 3.
1. Turn on both Plus II Transceivers, and turn on the camera and flash. 2. On both Plus II Transceivers make sure that: The STATUS LEDs on each Plus II Transceiver blink every few seconds. The same channel is selected using the CHANNEL slide switch. The TRANSMIT MODE switch is set to BOTH (middle position which is default operation). 3. Press the TEST button on the cameras Plus II Transceiver to confirm that the remote flash triggers. 4. Begin triggering normally.
Shown with default settings.
Connecting a Flash to the Cameras Transceiver (Local Flash)
A LOCAL flash is usually a non-TTL flash that is mounted on or near the camera, for example on the cameras bracket. It can be triggered from the cameras PlusIITransceiver ensuring perfect synchronization with remote flashes. See below for using a LOCAL TTL FLASH.
1. On the cameras Plus II Transceiver, connect the FLASH port to your local flash units sync terminal. Use a PocketWizard flash sync cable for best results. 2. Use the TRANSMIT MODE switch to creatively select which flashes will trigger: LOCAL = Only the flash connected to the cameras Transceiver will trigger. Remote PocketWizards will not trigger. BOTH (Default) = Both the local and remote flashes will trigger in perfect synchronization. REMOTE = Only the flashes connected to remote PocketWizards will trigger. The flash connected to the cameras Plus II Transceiver will not trigger. Alternate Connection Method: You may connect a local flash directly to your cameras PC terminal. In this case, the local flash will always trigger regardless of the position of the TRANSMIT MODE switch. See NOTE 4 for important timing information.
Local TTL Flash
Plus II Transceivers do not transmit TTL information. You can use a TTL flash directly connected to your camera and have remote flashes (not in TTL mode) triggered by PocketWizards. See NOTE 4 for important timing information. To operate in this manner, simply connect the Transceivers CAMERA / FLASH port to your cameras PC terminal and make all other camera to TTL flash connections normally.
TRIGGERING A REMOTE CAMERA
A Plus II Transceiver, paired with any PocketWizard Transmitter, can be used to trigger a remote camera. The camera needs to have an electronic shutter release connection and have a compatible PocketWizard motor drive cable available. Please visit www.PocketWizard.com to determine the correct motor drive cable.
Basic Remote Camera Setup
1. Connect a Plus II Transceivers CAMERA / FLASH port to the motor drive port of the camera using a PocketWizard motor drive cable. 2. Make sure the Plus II Transceiver and the hand-held PocketWizard are set to the same channel and turned on. 3. Press the TEST button on the hand-held PocketWizard to trigger the remote camera.
Hand Held Trigger
You can have a flash directly connected to the remote camera. Connecting a flash to the FLASH port of the Plus II Transceiver will not work in this setup. See NOTE 3.
You can trigger a remote flash in sync with your remote camera. This is called relay mode and requires only 3 PocketWizards. Here is how it works:
You press TEST on a PocketWizard that you are holding in your hands. The Plus II Transceiver connected to your remote camera receives the signal and triggers your camera. The Plus II Transceiver switches to transmit mode, one channel higher, and waits for the camera to provide a sync pulse. The PocketWizard connected to your flash receives the cameras sync pulse and triggers your flash.
Relay Mode Setup
1. Set the master triggering PocketWizard (the one in your hands) to Channel 1. 2. Set the Plus II Transceiver (the one for your remote camera) to Channel 1 and set TRANSMIT MODE to BOTH. 3. Connect the Plus II Transceivers CAMERA / FLASH port to the motor drive port of the camera. 4. Slide the Plus II Transceiver into your cameras hot shoe. 5. Set the PocketWizard for your remote flash to Channel 2. 6. Connect your remote flash to its PocketWizard normally. 7. Turn everything on, then press and release TEST on the PocketWizard in your hands to begin the sequence.
Using Hot Shoe
Without Hot Shoe
If you are using a camera with no hot shoe, or the hot shoe cannot be used, then connect the Plus II in this manner: Connect the cameras motor drive cable to the FLASH port. Connect the cameras PC sync terminal to the CAMERA / FLASH port. You can use different channels to perform the relay function. The master triggering PocketWizard (usually the one held in your hand) and the Plus II Transceiver connected to your remote camera need to be on the same channel. The PocketWizard connected to your remote flash needs to be set one channel higher.
If master trigger PocketWizard is set to: Set the remote cameras Plus II Transceiver to: Set the remote flashs PocketWizard to: 4 1
Turning Off Relay Mode
If you want to trigger a remote camera and have the Plus II mounted in the cameras hot shoe, but you do not want the relay sequence to happen, simply set the TRANSMIT MODE switch to LOCAL on the unit in the cameras shoe.
See NOTE 5 for more information on relay triggering.
Transmit Mode Only
The Plus II can be set to operate only as a Transmitter and perform no Receive or Relay function. Transmit Only Mode is helpful when 2 or more photographers are sharing remote flash units on the same PocketWizard channel, and are using one or more Plus II units as Transmitters from their cameras.
Fast Blink indicates Transmit Only Mode
In normal operation, when the first photographer triggers their camera, the second photographers Plus II performs Receive/Relay functions. This may occur when an immediate Transmit function is desired, for example when the photographers are triggering within moments of each other and using a fast recycling flash. In addition, the second photographers on-camera flash may be triggered unintentionally. Transmit Only Mode resolves these potential situations.
Activating Transmit Only Mode
Step 1: Turn off the Plus II unit(s) being used for Transmit Step 2: Press and hold the TEST button as you turn the unit back on
The Status LEDs will show a fast blinking pattern indicating Transmit Only Mode. You can verify Transmit Only operation by triggering any other PocketWizard Transmitter and noting that this unit does not respond. Transmit Only Mode is not remembered when the unit is turned off. You will need to activate Transmit Only Mode every time you need it. To return the unit to Normal Mode, turn it off and back on again normally. Do not hold down TEST when powering on. The Status LEDs will show the normal slow blinking pattern indicating normal mode.
Transmit Only Mode Normal Mode Fast Blink Slow Blink ~1 blink every second ~1 blink every 2 seconds
Mount a remote Plus II Transceiver using any of the included methods. See Sustaining High Performance for more mounting information. VELCRO
For attaching to flashes, brackets, cameras, etc. See NOTE 2.
For tripods, mounting arms, isolation bars, brackets, etc.
For mounting on a bracket shoe, cold or dead shoe, etc.
For hanging from a light stand, flash handle, tripod knob, belt, etc.
SUSTAINING HIGH PERFORMANCE
Long distance performance from your PocketWizards depends on the orientation and position of the units.
Whenever possible, try to maintain a line of sight between the units and keep the antennas parallel. Make sure they are not near any large metal, concrete, or high water-content objects. People and trees are mostly water! Make sure they are not blocked by these objects or by hills.
Maintain at least 12" distance between antennas. Avoid direct antenna contact with anything metallic. Dead spots have a number of causes, but the solution is usually the same: move the unit a few inches or feet away from the problem area.
Mount the remote PocketWizard so that the antenna is completely above the top edge of the flash pack and away from any metal (light modifiers, stands, etc.).
First follow the steps 1-5 then consult the table below.
1. Turn the units off, verify fresh batteries are in use, and turn the units back on. 2. Double check all connections. 3. Make sure the units are set to the same channel number. 4. Set the Transmit Mode switch to the BOTH position. 5. Press TEST on every unit and verify proper operation. Problem
When I press TEST or trigger the camera, the remotes do not trigger. When I press the TEST button, the flash or camera directly connected to the unit does not trigger.
See Sustaining High Performance earlier for radio information. Set the TRANSMIT MODE switch to BOTH. Verify that the remote equipment is functional when not connected to the PocketWizard. Try a different flash or camera. Double check all connections. Eliminate adapters if possible. Make sure the cable is properly connected to the correct port on the flash or camera. If triggering a flash with a household style sync terminal, try reversing the household connection (correct the polarity). Try connecting to the other port on the PocketWizard unit. Either port can trigger most cameras or flashes. Each port has slightly different triggering characteristics that may be more or less compatible with your equipment. Verify that the flash being triggered has a sync voltage that is compatible with your PocketWizard (see Technical Information). A remote camera cannot be triggered via its PC terminal or hot shoe. Get a motor drive cable. Try replacing the cable. Use PocketWizard brand cables. Try new AA (IEC:LR6) alkaline batteries (see page 5). If the unit has been left on but not triggered for ~40 hours, then it has shut down to prevent potential battery leakage. Turn the unit off and back on again or change the batteries. Check for a stuck TEST button on all units. Turn each unit off and back on again to isolate the source of the problem. Remove the unit from the cameras hot shoe and/or unplug and reconnect any connecting cables. Try switching all remote connections to the FLASH port rather than the CAMERA / FLASH port.
The STATUS LED does not blink when the power switch is on. The STATUS LEDs are on continuously (do not blink or blink rapidly) and no buttons are being pressed.
Visit www.PocketWizard.com for more troubleshooting information.
Note 1 The Plus II Transceiver shuts down after approximately 40 hours if it receives no triggers, or if the combined battery voltage drops below 1.7 volts. This protects against severe battery depletion which may lead to leakage. Power the unit off and back on again, or replace the batteries, for normal use. Note 2 VELCRO Brand Fasteners are included to provide a convenient means of mounting the unit in a variety of places. Attach as desired being careful to not obscure controls or function. Recommended mounting locations are the side of the unit or the area below the 1/4-20 mount. The battery door is not a recommended mounting location as damage to the battery door could occur when dismounting the unit. Note 3 If there is any cable connected to the FLASH Port on a Plus II, then the CAMERA / FLASH Port is switched to input mode only. If you connect 1 flash to each port of the Plus II, then only the flash connected to the FLASH port will trigger. Attempting to connect 2 flashes to the FLASH port can be dangerous. Different flashes can have very different sync voltages. Connecting them together could cause damage to the flashes, and they may not trigger. 2 identical flashes with known identical sync voltages may work when connected together, but operation is not guaranteed to be risk free. Note 4 There is a 1/2000 second delay when triggering via PocketWizard radios. This means your radio remote flashes will trigger 1/2000 second after your camera connected flash triggers. For very fast moving objects this may result in image streaking or 2 distinct flash moments on the same image (double exposures). Note 5 If you press and *hold* the TEST button on the unit in your hands, and you are using a fast shutter speed like 1/200 or faster, then you may cause interference for the remote flash unit. It may miss the flash sync pulse from the camera. Press and immediately release the TEST button to help avoid this situation. If you are attempting to perform a long exposure or a motor drive multi-frame burst, then you may need to consider our MultiMAX product for enhanced relay functionality. Note 6 The hot shoe and the miniphone connectors of the PocketWizard Plus II are ESD (electro-static discharge) sensitive. A static shock to one of those points may cause the unit to unintentionally transmit a radio trigger.
