You now have the best of both worlds in one easy-to-use, reliable wireless trigger.
The Plus IV Auto-Sensing Transceiver allows photographers the benefit of on-camera TTL flash combined with remote manual flash.
Whether you shoot portraits, weddings or sports, having the ability to combine on-camera TTL flash with remote manual flash provides you with a huge competive edge.
On-Camera TTL Flash / Remote Manual Flash
The Plus IV features a top shoe providing TTL compatiblity with most Canon, Nikon and Panasonic cameras and flashes as well as some Fuji and Olympus gear. This allows photographers the versatilty to shoot with an on-camera flash in TTL mode while triggering their remotes in manual mode. Easily slide a speedlight into the top shoe of your receiviing radio and you are ready to start triggering your remote flash in minutes. A perfect setup for wedding photographers.
The top shoe on the Plus IV allows photographers to easiy set-up their speedlights. No sync cord required.
Simple User Interface
The Plus IV has an intuitive user interface where all channels, zones and modes can be easily engaged via a soft-touch keypad, and displayed on an easy-to-read backlit 2.5cm (1”) LCD display. When you're working in dark environments, simply press any key other than TEST to illuminate the LCD.
With 32 channels (16 standard plus 16 Quad-Zone Triggering channels), the PocketWizard Plus IV Transceiver enables you to trigger individual or groups of lights simultaneously or individually. This is critical for working in crowded venues or with multiple lighting set-ups.
Selective Quad-Zone Triggering keeps you shooting photos, not running back and forth to your lighting or cameras. Without leaving the camera position, you can wirelessly activate or deactivate your remote flashes or cameras in 4 separately controllable zones: A, B, C, or D. This is ideal when using multiple lighting setups or turning remote cameras or flashes on and off as needed.
With our patented Auto-Sensing Transceiver technology, the Plus IV Transceiver is one smart radio. When set to TxRx, it will instantly and intelligently switch between transmitter and receiver modes as needed for greater flexibility on the job. The Plus IV may be set to transmit (Tx) or receive (Rx) independently if needed.
Two-Stage Remote Camera Triggering
The Plus IV Transceiver is the perfect solution for remote camera triggering. The unique two-stage TEST button on the Plus IV works just like the shutter release button on your camera. Press it halfway and your remote camera wakes up to meter and focus. Press TEST all the way to take your photo. When released, your remote camera will return to sleep mode normally; a real battery saver.
Our Auto-Sensing Transceiver technology lets you trigger a remote camera in sync with remote flashes using only 3 PocketWizard radios: the one in your hands, a Plus IV cabled to your remote camera, and the one connected to your remote flash set to one channel higher.
Long Range Capability
Range is comparable to other PocketWizard radios. Shooting environments are seldom ideal, so the Plus IV incorporates two range extending modes for the challenges of the real world. Use Long Range Mode (LR) to nearly double the effective triggering distance in almost any environment.
