Physically the FlexTT5 is a lot bigger than it looks in the pictures - twice the size of the MiniTT1.

It's made of good quality plastic although the hotshoe looks made of a slightly different and possibly more brittle substance but so far it has survived. The hotshoe is very solid and takes SB900 speedlight easily.

Takes 2 AA batteries which is always good - unlike the TT1 which uses button cells.

The aerial is solid unlike previous PocketWizards and folds up from the front revealing the USB port which is used for firmware updates. This solid aerial is obviously not as rugged as before but so far I haven't actually had to raise it so hopefully it won't ever get broken off.

Switches: along the left side are a little fiddly and for me the one annoyance: the on/off switch has three positions: Off/C2/C1 in that order. Not sure why it's not Off/C1/C2 but as I have a habit of using channel 1 most of the time it means the switch is travelling the full distance and will probably shorten it's lifespan.

Has the usual flash and camera trigger sockets 3.5mm.

Has a brass 1/4in socket underneath for stand mounting.

Operationally it is brilliant and when combined with the MiniTT1 as a controller allows you to shoot TTL at 1/8000th sec no problem. If you add the SU800 Commander or use another speedlight as a commander on the MIniTT1 you can also of course control power manually or TTL with exposure compensation up to 1/8000th.

Only slight issue I have with it is every now and again the speedlight fires for no apparent reason. I only use SB900's and I have tried all of them with the same thing happening. Not sure if it will affect other flashes but I assume it would. No doubt they will sort this out with a firmware update.

A great unit if a little pricey. I bought 3 :) All I need now is a nice caddy...

I use both Nikon D3 and D90 and up until now the D90 was easier to use with flash through its in-built commander unit in the flash. What I have been doing is setting up the flash as a commander and then using three off camera flash units controlled from the D90. Works well but the flash is controlled by light from the D90 flash and so if you plash a flash out of eye sight it won't fire. The D3 is a bit more complicated in that there is no on camera flash so you either need a commander unit or you can use a SB-900 as a commander unit (you can still fire the flash btw) and you have that mounted on the camera. Problem is that you lose direction of the flash i.e. with one on the camera you only have two off camera to direct.

My set up hads now changed since I have moved over to the Pocket Wizards. I have bough the Minni TT1 and the FlexTT5 set up. Easy to set up - though it is recommended that you plug both units into your computer to update the software - recommended because mine came with version 2 of the software rather that the latest 3.03 version. Once thats done its put the MiniTTl on your camera and the FlexTTL on the bottom of the flash. You set the flash if its the SB-900 to standard mode and TTL, flash sync to 250FP and off you go - no need to set the flash to remote as the flash thinks its connected to the camera.. Turn in both units and fire the camera shutter and the flash fires. Great feature in that the camera can now record flash syncs up to 4000 of a second rather that the normal 320/250th of a second.

I have trued it with the SB-900 and SB-800 and both work great. On the Nikon D90, you can't change the sync speed to FP mode but that doesn't seem to be a problem.

I'd have agree with all the other reviews on here and give these controllers a 5 star review apart from the length of time it takes for Pocket Wizard to update the kit when new items come out.

They still do not work with the SB910 six months after launch or the D800/D4 three months after launch and it took them about six months to sort out problems with the D700.

I've owned the units for about 18 months and when working they work well but I have never had total confidence in them. Out of the 18 months of ownership I've had maybe 4 months when everything works. NO problems on D300.

I've sold mine now and gone over to Radio Poppers which work with Nikon's own CLS system and am hoping that they prove more reliable.

Good but considering the investment in kit I am disappointed.

This transceiver unit is a vey good choice for a Nikon or Canon user.

It makes easy controlling external flashes just like they are on camera: TTL mode, hyper sync mode along with manual flash mode.

The care of packaging, accessories and manuals makes the PW products stand out of the crowd of street market alternatives.

Not to mention the vast help wiki and videos area on PW web site and the efficient help desk.

Finally got my first set of PWs. These are in a totally different league to the cheaper alternatives. The Mini TT5 is very robust, locks tightly onto the camera or any cold shoe and is very light weight. It also has a screw thread for mounting directly to an umbrella clam stud or small ball head. I was a little concerned to see the hot shoe is made of plastic, but after close inspection it looks like a very high grade resin that won't break under pressure. Apparently the hot shoe is also user replaceable.

The software is easy enough to use. I recommend watching the videos on Pocket Wizard and the PW Vimeo channel for best results.

A little disappointed the CE version only has 3 CTL channels, compared to the 20 channels for the FCC version, but hopefully won't be an issue as I'm mainly shooting weddings and portraits, so won't have much interference.
