Plus IIIe | Transceiver

The FCC Plus llle Transceiver is the most reliable, feature-packed, easy-to-use solution for remote flash and camera triggering available. It comes with PocketWizard’s enhanced firmware, the E Release, factory installed to deliver incredible range and enhanced reliability right out of the box for when you can’t miss a shot. You will need at least 2 radios, one to use as a transmitter to trigger and one to use as a receiver. Plus IIIe are Auto-Sensing Transceivers and will automatically function as either a transmitter, a receiver, or both.

Key Features:

  • Quad-Zone Triggering
  • Auto-Relay Mode
  • Remote Camera Trigger

  • USB Upgradable

Additional Features:

  • Incredible Range and Rock-Solid Reliability: Trigger off-camera flash(es) and/or remote camera(s) from remarkable distances even in challenging environments
  • Huge Number of Channels: Great radio reception without interference, select from 32 E Channels and in Long Range (LR) Mode, select from 80 LR Channels
  • Flexible Triggering with Four Zones on Every Channel: Activate or deactivate remote flash(es) and/or camera(s) in groups or individually controlled Zones
  • Universally Compatible with Most Cameras and Flashes: Use with virtually any camera via hot shoe or PC port and flash via sync connection
  • E Release Firmware Factory Installed: Benefit from ground-breaking new technology with enhanced reliability right out of the box

* Important Information: PocketWizard Plus IIIe is fully compatible with PocketWizard E Series radios that have the E Release firmware. To communicate with a non E Series PocketWizard radio, like a PlusX or Plus II, or with another Plus III radio that has not been upgraded, the unit can be downgraded to Legacy firmware quickly and easily and upgraded again to the E Release as often as you like using the PocketWizard Utility.
