The PocketWizard MultiMAX Transceiver features Wireless Transceiver Technology, which eliminates the need for a separate transmitter and receiver setup. Each MultiMAX provides the capability to send and/or receive digital signaling by a flip of a switch, similar to personal communicators. Among many advantages, a photographer can select between a transmitter or receiver mode as shooting assignments change.
The MultiMAX is the only radio system that offers True Trigger Confirmation feedback, up to 1600 feet away or more, without the need for signal repeaters or daisy-chained radios. Selecting which camera or flash zone fires is as easy as pressing a button in "Selective Quad Triggering" mode. The MultiMAX automatically confirms radio triggering on every zone simultaneously, with immediate visual and audible feedback on the MultiMAX (set for transmitter).
Utilizing LPA Design's patented microprocessor and software technology, the MultiMAX comes loaded with "Trigger Time Control" software. Used independently or with another PocketWizard, the MultiMAX provides several unique advanced tools for the working professional, all in one small package. With the "Trigger Time Control" software, it's easy and very convenient to create rear curtain sync effects with any camera, add depth of field using multi-pop mode, record events as they unfold using the intervalometer mode and much more.
As with all PocketWizard Digital Radio Receivers, the PocketWizard MultiMAX is fully compatable with Sekonic's L-608 and L-358 exposure meters configured with the plug-in digital radio transmitter module. Now, you can trigger electronic flash units and/or cameras with your Sekonic L-608 or L-358 meter and PocketWizard Digital Radio Receivers.
The MultiMAX provides the capability to send or receive digital signaling by a flip of a switch, eliminating the need for a separate transmitter and receiver. Easy to read backlit LCD panel indicates which mode the MultiMAX is set for in all lighting conditions.
Because the MultiMAX is a true transceiver, it can automatically confirm radio triggering. Radio triggering confirmation status is indicated on the MultiMAX's (set for Transmitter mode) display panel, up to 1600 feet away or more in all Quad-Triggering zone.
The MultiMAX incorporates microprocessor controlled full digital communication with built-in selectable 32 complex (16/24 bit) digitally coded channels.
More than just a radio slave, the MultiMAX offers advanced features that make today's incredible images possible.
- This is one unit only. You need TWO PocketWizard: One Transmitter + One Receiver in order to work. More like a walkie talkie.
- USA PocketWizard is using 344MHz frequency, while Europe PocketWizard is using 433Mhz frequency. Both are NOT compatible with each other.
