Do you often shoot in multi user environments? PocketWizard has created a solution to keep you from accidentally tripping another photographer’s equipment – or from having them trip yours.
In crowded shooting environments, the number of available Channels may be limited but now you can install a PocketWizard Custom ID on your PocketWizard radios. With a Custom ID, your radio will be using a unique frequency, specifically assigned to you and your radios, allowing only you to trigger your remote flash or camera.
Custom IDs give you the confidence to know that your remote flash or camera can only be triggered by you and not any other photographer. It is not a “private frequency.” It is an exclusive code installed on top of an existing PocketWizard frequency.
Custom IDs can be installed on MultiMAX (usb version), MultiMAX II, Plus III, Plus IV, FlexTT5, and Canon FlexTT6 radios. The installation is performed only at PocketWizard’s home office (LPA Design) in Vermont. LPA Design maintains a database of Custom ID holders. Only you can get your Custom ID on future radios. You can order a new radio directly from us and we can add a Custom ID before shipping. Or if you would like to add a Custom ID to an existing radio, you can ship the unit to us for Custom ID installation.
Please note: you need at least 2 radios with Custom IDs and all radios that you want to work together must have the same Custom ID installed. For more information about Custom IDs, please see our wiki page here or contact us.
