PocketWizard Plus II Transceiver
Who It’s For:
If you use external strobes and you don’t want to fight with syncing, these are for you. These are the most reliable radio syncs that I have ever used and are the professional standard.
What We Like:
Simple Set Up: Just pop in a few batteries, flip the power on and you’re good to go. This design is all buttons and sliders which makes it very easy to use.
Range: PocketWizard claims 1600ft. You don’t get 100% reliability at that range, but it will do it. That being said, unless you’re pushing the boundries of the unit all the time, you’re going to come close to a 100% fire rate. If your lights can keep up, this PocketWizard will be right there with you.
What We Don’t:
Price: at $170 new, these units are a little steep, but the good news is that not only are the PWIII’s slightly cheaper, it means that many pros will be dropping their PWII’s in favor of the newer model, which means used models will be hitting the market like they never have before.
