PocketWizard have reintroduced their MultiMAX advanced radio transceivers, in the form the new MultiMAX II, now offering more features, a new look, and a lower price tag.

The original MultiMAX were particularly popular with sports photographers, requiring solid range and reliability for remote camera and flash triggering at various sporting events and crowded venues.

The MultiMAX for example are one of the few flash triggers available capable of firing a number of remote cameras in sync with the same set of strobes.

    Too little, too late. The market for these products has drastically shrunk in the past five years and, while they’ll occupy a niche for awhile longer, PW has not adapted.

      Agree. And for $229??? Seriously?

      I’m not really aware of any other options that fill this niche for serious sports photographers etc who want to set up remote cameras and flashes at sporting venues etc.

      When people ask how they can sync remote cameras with the same set of strobes, second hand MultiMAX was the only main option I was aware of that are capable of doing that by providing adjustment for the various shutter lag.

      It appears spending money on new hardware was not particularly viable though.

    Also you can use it in challenging situations with many other photographers.

    Cactus V6 and V6II also support triggering of multiple cameras and flashes in sync. I didn’t hear anything in the video that the Cactus triggers cannot do. They may even have a feature (sports shutter) that the PWs don’t have. Group cycling is limited to four groups, though.

      Correction: The Cactus triggers do not support an intervalometer. So they don’t cover all of the PW’s functionality. But sports shooters shouldn’t miss that.

    Will the MultiMax ii work with a Canon 1Dx ii?
