Pocket Wizard Sync Speeds: What about PW MultiMax

Postby NN8917711 » Thu Mar 04, 2010 10:44 am

Hello everyone,

I m using a Mamiya AFDIII with 80mm LS lens.

I ve read some of the threads re: sync speeds and have found no solution
to the slow 125th sync speed of the Pocket WIzard Plus II.

Spoke to Pocket Wizard and they said the MultiMax model will go up to 1000th
but it is dependent on the camera syync speed.

The horseshoe connection will introduce a delay in the sync and darken the image.
Connection the PW to the PC will get the sync speed up, but not sure if it will match
the focal plane shutter or the leaf shutter of the new 80mm lens. Can anyone
verify this?

Does anyone have a solution to this problem?

Thanks

The PocketWizard Plus II has a Leaf Shutter Sync Speed of 1/500th as outlined in there data sheet. That being the case, if you purchase a DF camera (capable of using the Leaf Shutter lens) then you will have this ability. With the AFDIII the Focal Plane Shutter sync's to "X" which is 1/125th.

Synch Speed is listed on page 3 under "Key Features"
