Fuji X-Pro1 & Pocket Wizards

Figured I’d share the method I use for triggering off-camera flash with my X-Pro1. It was a pain to set up.

The trick is getting the triggers in Basic Trigger Mode.

Here is the process for the MiniTT1/FlexTT5 (Canon).

On you computer via PocketWizard Utility:

MiniTT1 > Misc > Deselect “ForceTTL Master Mode” > Select “Basic Trigger Mode” > Noting the Standard Transmit Channel

FlexTT5 > Deselect “Use ControlTL Channel for Receive Channel” > Misc > Select “Basic Trigger Mode” > Match Standard Receive Channel (with that of the Mini’s Standard Transmit Channel)

Make sure the Mini & Flex are on the corresponding Standard Transmit Channel and Standard Receive Channel, respectively…

In Basic Trigger Mode, your PWs should be good to go on any camera with a compatible hot-shoe. Furthermore, this can be done on C1/C2, leaving a spare config setup for your main TTL system… Just make sure you select the correct Configuration tab in the PocketWizard Utility.

    Thanks for sharing this method. I didn’t realize it was possible to use the Pocket Wizards on the X-Pro1 – now I know!

    Can you use the AC3 controller, to set up the power level from your camera?

    Will TTL work?
