The PocketWizard MultiMAX Transceiver is the WORLD'S
most innovative and advanced Digital Radio Triggering
system available in the photographic market. With such
distinctive features such as integrated Trigger
Time Control software, True
Trigger Confirmation and Selective
Quad Triggering only to mention a few, it's
no wonder the MultiMAX goes far beyond the expectations
of wireless triggering.
The MultiMAX 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).
Using the optional Flash Confirmation Cable,
the transmitter receives a visual and audible confirmation
signal, indicating that a triggered flash actually fired,
reassuring the photographer that everything is working
from the camera position.
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
- PLUS -
As with all PocketWizard Digital Radio Receivers, the
PocketWizard MultiMAX is fully compatable with Sekonic’s
new 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. Welcome to Digital Wireless Freedom!
COMMUNICATION TECHNOLOGY FEATURES:
Wireless Transceiver Technology
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.
True Trigger Confirmation
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.
Provides the photographer with the convenience to activate
or deactivate electronic flash units and or cameras
wirelessly in four separately controllable zones (ABCD)
without ever leaving the camera position.
Digital Radio Technology
The MultiMAX incorporates microprocessor controlled
full digital communication with built-in selectable
32 complex (16/24 bit) digitally coded channels.
TRIGGER TIME CONTROLLER FEATURES:
More than just a radio slave, the MultiMAX offers advanced
features that make today’s incredible images possible.
Rear Curtain Sync
Allows the photographer to delay the sync time to fire
the electronic flash unit near the end of the exposure
with precision of 1/10,000th of a second. Pre-programmed
shutter speeds of 1 second to 1/60th of a second are
easily selectable. Custom delay settings are possible
through the MultiMax's delay time adjustment screen.
In transmit mode it offers custom set delay times for
remote units and or port 2 on the MultiMAX. In receiver
mode, precision delay offers delay sequencing or camera/flash
MultiPop (Mulitple Flash Exposures)
Provides unattended control of your flash exposures
for multi-pops or exposures up to 10,000 flash exposures.
Automatically triggers flash units for the desired number
of exposures, then waits for the required electronic
flash recycling time (user settable), from 1/100th sec.
to 10 minutes.
Photograph events as they unfold with the desired number
of exposures, up to 10,000 exposures and time interval
required up to 17 hours 46 minutes.
Provides sequential triggering for up to 4 camera's
or 4 electronic flash units. The SpeedCycler is ideal
for multi-angle camera shots or reducing recycle time
by triggering the next flash in line, while the previous
flash is charging, for faster motor driven flash photography
assignments. The SpeedCycler mode is a big help for
on-location shoots with battery-powered electronic flash.
With four PocketWizard MultiMax transceivers connected
to the motor ports of the cameras, the SpeedCycler mode
wirelessly triggers up to four camera's sequentially,
effectively quadrupling frames per second.
Lag Time Equalizer
This feature measures the actual time it takes from
the moment the motor driven camera is activated to the
time the shutter is open. The Lag Time Equalizer software,
measures the delay of your motor driven camera with
fine precision accuracy of 1/10,000th sec. resolution,
assists the photographer in calibrating another camera,
electronic flash unit or both for simultaneous triggering
and exposure synchronizing.
In this mode the MultiMAX acts as both a transmitter
and a receiver triggering both your camera and flash
from up to 1600 feet away without an inch of wire. Upon
receiving a signal from a remote transmitter, the on
camera receiver instantaneously switches to transmit
mode and sends a signal to fire the remote flash units
in sync with the remote camera.
Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) panel with backlight illumination
button. Alphanumeric screens with icons: battery status,
channel selected, mode selected, audible status and
radio frequency lock indicators.
Illuminated soft-touch rubberized keypad. Includes test,
zone (ABCD), up/down, menu and backlight keys. A key
lock feature prevents inadvertent setting changes and
"KEYPAD LOCKED" appears on the screen if any
keys are pressed while in keypad lock mode.
OPTIONAL FLASH CONFIRMATION CABLE
The optional "Flash Confirmation Cable" indicates
that a triggered remote flash actually fired. By utilizing
a shielded high intensity light sensor, which only remains
active during the brief radio transmitting time, it
confirms only if the attached flash fired or not. Flash
confirmation status is sent to the attached receiver
and in return sent back to the transmitter. A visual
confirmation icon appears on the LCD screen confirming
whether the flash fired on all four Quad-Triggering
