PocketWizard’s ControlTL firmware platform taps into the full potential of your camera and flash system, enabling an entirely new level of remote flash capability through our proven radio communications. ControlTL firmware is configurable and upgradeable for continuous improvement and is available with the PocketWizard MiniTT1, FlexTT5, or FlexTT6.
E Release Firmware Compatible
The PowerMC2 can be upgraded to PocketWizard’s new firmware protocol, the E Release. The E Release gives you incredible range and reliability and also enables the PowerMC2 to be compatible with the new Raven from Fusion TLC.
Manual Power Control
When the PowerMC2 is paired with either the Raven or a ControlTL radio with an AC3 ZoneController, you can adjust the power settings of your Einstein E640 lights directly from the camera’s position. You can also adjust power to the Einstein via the Sekonic L-478DR light meter.
Assign each Einstein to its own Zone through the user interfaced on the Einstein or Link and you can adjust power from the transmitting unit for Zones A, B, and C with a compatible transmitter. Zone D can also be used for an extra zone of light. Easily enable and disable each Zone from your transmitter to create different lighting effects.
PowerTracking allows you to choose the perfect light level, then lock it in, even if you want to tweak your other settings. Once you’ve set the power level, you can then adjust your ISO, aperture, or flash exposure compensation and the light intensity will automatically increase or decrease to keep the same exposure.
HyperSync allows photographers to achieve faster X-sync speeds, all the way up to 1/8000 second*, with full power flash. Now you can cut the ambient light and use wide-open apertures, outdoors in bright sunlight. That extra speed can also freeze action, whether shooting models or athletes in motion. HyperSync Automation with a ControlTL radio will allow seamless HyperSync performance with your PocketWizard radios.
SyncView is the advanced version of HyperSync and is available with the Raven. You can see the actual flash arc on the Raven’s screen and tweak it on the fly. HyperSync Automation with a ControlTL radio will allow seamless HyperSync performance with your PocketWizard radios.
(*maximum sync speed is camera and flash model dependent).
Programmable and Upgradeable
Use the PocketWizard Utility with the PowerMC2’s USB port to program the receiver to your preferred settings. You can control your modeling light, program your initial power settings, and adjust HyperSync settings, among other things, using the Utility. The PowerMC2 can be easily upgraded whenever updates and feature enhancements are available. The Utility program can be used to upgrade the PowerMC2 to the E Release firmware or downgrade it to the Legacy firmware as needed.
The PowerMC2 can be programmed as needed with up to 20 ControlTL channels for Manual Power Control, or 32 standard channels for simple triggering for Legacy firmware. It can use Channels 1-20 for the E Release firmware.
Reverse Compatible and Upgradeable
The PowerMC2 Receiver operates on the same channels as all other PocketWizard radios and will work with any PocketWizard radio you may already have. The PowerMC2 can use both Legacy and the E Release firmware
No batteries required
The PowerMC2 gets its power from the Einstein™ E640 flash.
