  • Auto-Sensing Transceiver: Radio instantly and intelligently switches between transmitter and receiver modes for easy set-up
  • PlusX is compatible with all Standard Channel PocketWizard transmitters and receivers
  • Same Range and Reliability as other PocketWizard radios
  • 10 Standard Channels:
  • With the PlusX's 10 Standard Channels you can work in your own "zone"
  • Claim your own channel for exclusive triggering when working with other photographers at crowded events
  • Use different channels for different setups or looks and select them simply and intuitively with the turn of a dial
  • And these 10 channels are compatible with every PocketWizard ever made* set to Standard Channels 1 ? 10. (* radios of the same frequency)
  • Backlit Channel Dial:
  • Setting channels is as easy as turning a dial
  • The backlit channel dial clearly displays the set channel and because the backlight consumes so little power, it stays on all the time for convenience
  • Internal Antenna:
  • The PlusX features a durable, side profile design with an unobtrusive, internal antenna minimizing visual obstruction between you and your subject
  • By utilizing an internal antenna, there's no chance to kink or break it when on location
  • The total height of the transceiver and antenna is less than 4.2 inches, and it weighs only 4 ounces, including batteries
  • Easily Connected / Cable Port:
  • On your camera, the PlusX slides into the hot shoe with no cables required
  • For your remotes, it features one do-it-all miniphone (3.5mm or 1/8") sync port
  • The miniphone connector is much more reliable than a PC connection and every PlusX comes complete with a miniphone-to-miniphone cable, a miniphone-to-phono (1/4" or 6.3mm)adapter for triggering the majority of modern flashes, and a miniphone to locking PC cable for triggering some remote speedlights or for using your PlusX on-camera when you can't put it in a hot shoe
  • Other miniphone connector cables are available for major brands of lighting equipment in a variety of lengths
  • Dedicated remote camera triggering cables are also available for popular camera systems
  • Auto-Sensing Transceiver:
  • With our patented Auto-Sensing Transceiver Technology, the PlusX Transceiver is one smart radio
  • The PlusX will instantly and intelligently switch between transmitter and receiver modes keeping setup as simple as possible
  • The PlusX may be set to Transmit (Tx) only when needed
  • Auto-Relay Mode:
  • Our Auto-Sensing Transceiver Technology lets you trigger a remote camera in sync with remote flashes using only 3 PocketWizard radios: the one in your hands, a PlusX cabled to your remote camera, and the one connected to your remote flash
  • The PlusX cabled to your remote camera will receive a radio signal and trigger the camera's motor drive, then switch to transmit mode and trigger your PocketWizard-connected remote flashes on the next channel up, all automatically
  • Start the sequence by simply pressing the TEST button of any PocketWizard transmitter in your hands
  • Remote cameras require motor drive cables. Find the correct cable for your gear using the PocketWizard Cable Finder
  • Status Indicator/Battery Life Indicator:
  • The PlusX features a tri-color LED status indicator that serves two functions
  • When the PlusX sends or receives a triggering signal, the LED will glow red
  • During normal operation, the indicator will blink a single green blink meaning it is operating normally and the battery life is above 50%
  • It will blink a double amber blink when the battery is below 50% but above 25% and it will blink three red blinks when the battery life is below 25% and it's crucial to replace the batteries
  • Transmit Only Mode:
  • There are times when you only want your radio to transmit, usually when two or more photographers are sharing a set of lights
  • By enabling transmit only mode, you disable the receive and auto-relay functions to make sure all your radio is doing is transmitting

  • Although the PlusX costs less than other PocketWizard radios, you still get the range and reliability you'd expect
