You can use the FlexTT6 Transceiver to control single or multiple off-camera electronic or intelligent TTL flashes. The PocketWizard ControlTL® System takes the complex TTL data being sent through the camera’s hot shoe and digitally interprets and transmits it as a reliable radio signal. You can now place TTL or manual flashes anywhere to illuminate the scene: Around corners, out-of-sight and in bright sunlight. The FlexTT6 is compatible with any PocketWizard radio including the Canon MiniTT1 and FlexTT5 for triggering manual flash or remote cameras.

The Canon-specific FlexTT6 radio works within the Canon E-TTL II system. All references to TTL are exclusively for the electronic or intelligent TTL systems specific to Canon (E-TTL II).

The FlexTT6 was created to make the newest generation of Canon cameras (such as the 1DX Mark II and 5D Mark IV) compatible with our ControlTL system. The difference between the FlexTT6 and FlexTT5 is a circuit board hardware change. The functions of the radios are identical. To use a FlexTT5 with a FlexTT6, the FlexTT5 will need to be updated to firmware version 6.905 or later to function properly.

To quickly begin using your radio, you might be interested in the Quick Guides or other documentation at PocketWizard.com.
