More information is in the press release below.
So. Burlington, VT – January 18, 2011 PocketWizard® MiniTT1® and FlexTT5® radios for Nikon are now shipping everywhere. Shipments to dealers in the USA began today and will continue daily. These Nikon i-TTL compatible radios are being shipped with the latest ControlTL® firmware for Nikon, version 2.100.
ControlTL firmware v2.100 for Nikon adds compatibility for the new Nikon D7000 and addresses some other operational issues. Current owners of the MiniTT1 and FlexTT5 radios for Nikon can upgrade to the new firmware for free via the PocketWizard Utility.
This firmware does not include compatibility for the new SB700, this will be addressed in a future firmware version.
PocketWizard has also just released an online wiki format manual for both Nikon and Canon versions of the ControlTL system. The wiki format allows the manual to stay current as new features are added and improvements are made to the easily upgraded ControlTL system.
