Terms and Conditions
30-day money-back guarantee
Shipping: 2-3 Business Days
You will need at least 2 radios with E Release Firmware.
Each radio requires its own Firmware License.
Please be sure to check camera compatibility below before purchasing.
The E Release upgrade is not available for the MiniTT1 at this time.
You can use a FlexTT5 as a transmitter in place of the MiniTT1.
This license is for a CE frequency (Europe, Asia, Australia) Transceiver. If your radio says "FCC" on the label,
please purchase an FCC license instead.
Important information: Please make sure you enter your email address correctly at checkout. The license(s) will be assigned to that email address. After purchase, you will receive a confirmation email from *LPA Design* (PocketWizard's parent company) with further instructions. The upgrade is completed through the PocketWizard utility via a USB connection with a computer, either a PC or Mac. It cannot be done on a smartphone or tablet. You will need a mini B to USB data cable for the upgrade. An upgrade must be purchased for each radio and will be assigned to the radio's serial number upon installation. Once assigned, it is non-transferable.
What you need to know
At this time, the E Release for Canon radios is only available as a receiver function. For TTL communication, you will need to use a Raven by Fusion TLC on the camera and can use the PocketWizard radios as receivers for full TTL.
If you have a camera that is not TTL compatible with the Legacy firmware, like the Canon mirrorless cameras, you can set the radios to Basic Trigger mode. This setting in the Utility is available with Legacy firmware only. It uses just the center pin trigger and is compatible with virtually any camera on the market. The camera must be able to trigger with a single sync pin through the hot shoe. There are a couple cameras (the original Canon T7 and SL3) that do not have a center pin. PocketWizard radios cannot work with those units. The camera's hot shoe must be active. If you have any trouble, please see this Wiki page.
The radios are TTL compatible with the following Canon flashes:
Canon 600EX-RT II
Canon 580EX II*
Canon 580 EX*
Canon 430EX III*
Canon 430EX II
*Note: some Canon cameras emit RF interference that may impact the remote radio's ability to hear an incoming signal. Please see our Wiki page for details.
A unit upgraded with the E Release is compatible only with other PocketWizard radios that have also been upgraded. Be sure to use the same generation of E Release firmware-either the newest versions which may be in Beta or the lowest firmware numbers available in the Utility.
Once you update to the E Release firmware, the unit is licensed forever. It can be downgraded to Legacy PocketWizard firmware at any time for use with your other PocketWizard radios. Re-upgrading to E Release can be done at any time with minimal effort.
