Easy to use and packed with features, our ControlTL line of radios is our most popular line of radios for wedding photographers and others who need the ability to set up quickly and start capturing the moment fast. Despite the different names, the FlexTT6 for Canon and the FlexTT5 for Nikon offer the same great features – here’s an overview of the top 12.
ControlTL (Control the Light) taps into the camera’s digital communications to enable remote TTL communications: changes in ISO, aperture and shutter speed are seamlessly passed along for reliable and flawless flash output.
Basic Trigger Mode
Use basic trigger mode and the radio can be used on virtually any camera that has a hot shoe.
Manual Power Control
Use the camera’s exposure compensation controls for basic manual control of remote flashes or add an AC3 ZoneController for even more control and flexibility.
Add an AC3 ZoneController to adjust power to 3 different Zones of light independently, in manual or TTL, from your camera’s position.
Radios can act as either a transmitter or a receiver
PocketWizard ControlTL radios are auto-sensing transceivers meaning they can act as either a transmitter or a receiver. They intelligently know when to transmit and when to receive.
Long Range Performance
Our legendary range is up to 800 feet (240 meters) for TTL triggering, and up to 1200 feet (365 meters) for basic triggering. Unlike our competition that relies on the crowded 2.4GHz frequency, our radios use 344 MHz in the US and 433 MHz in Europe giving range and reliability that is the favorite of the most demanding photographers. Link here for tips on how to extend your range.
Our patented HyperSync technology allows photographers to achieve faster X-sync speeds (sometimes up to 1/8000 of a second) with full power flash on any type of flash, including speedlights, mono-lights and power-pack systems. With HyperSync, you can cut the ambient light and use wide-open apertures, even in bright sunlight.
Optimized High Speed Sync (HSS)
With Optimized High Speed Sync, you can trigger a Speedlight flash all the way up to 1/8000. ControlTL optimizes this amazing feature and provides more light (which equals greater working distance), faster recycling times and more flashes per battery set. Use this feature to shoot wide open in bright sun for amazing results.
Compatible with all PocketWizards
The ControlTL radios are compatible with any PocketWizard radio for triggering manual flash or remote cameras. Even with your 20 year old radios.
20 ControlTL Channels
With 20 different channels available, you can program the two different configuration settings to custom settings for more flexibility on the fly.
32 Standard Channels
The 32 Standard Channels integrate with our Standard Channel radios and make it easy to find an open channel for manual triggering.
Remote Camera Trigger
Get creative using remote cameras for unique perspectives. Use multiple remote cameras to capture all the angles at your next event. (You will need one radio to use as a transmitter – attached to your main camera or to hold in your hand to manually trigger – and one radio with the correct remote camera cable for each remote camera.)

Hi, I have a set of Flex tt5’s. Is there any way I can use them with canon 5dmk4 or 1dx 11.
Hi Rob! Sorry that we did not get back to you sooner!
With these Canon cameras, they will not work in TTL mode – sorry! But, you can use the radios in Basic Trigger to fire the remote flash in manual mode, up to X-sync. To enable Basic Trigger mode, connect the radios to the Utility and navigate to the Misc tab. Check the “Basic Trigger” box, then hit Apply Changes. The radios will now work just like the Standard Channel (Plus) radios and use the center pin contact only. You will need to set the flash to manual and make any adjustments on the flash itself.
If you want TTL, you will have to buy just 1 new radio, a Flex TT6 and use it as a transmitter on your camera. Your current TT5s can be used as receivers.
