Special Note: Canon Speedlite models 580EX and 580EX II, and especially the older 430EX (not the newer 430EX II), emit RF interference that can substantially reduce the effective operating range of many radio slaves, including the FlexTT5 when used as a receiver. For these model flashes, please utilize the mounting suggestions on PocketWizard.com


The MiniTT1/FlexTT5 are E-TTL II compatible with these Canon flashes:

Current Generation

600EX-RT
Supported Modes:
    • Master E-TTL
    • Master Manual
    • Remote E-TTL
    • Remote Manual
Unsupported Modes:
    • Multi (stroboscopic) is not supported.
    • Group mode is not supported.
    • "ALL" selection is not supported, but Ratios are available in supported Master modes.
580EX II
Full feature compatibility.
Range limited due to RF interference from flash only when connected to a remote FlexTT5. See Long Range Performance.
Not range limited when used on a transmitting radio.
430EX II
Full feature compatibility.
Excellent range performance with this flash.
270EX
Can be used on the MiniTT1 or FlexTT5 (Transmit or Receive) in ETTL mode.
Range slightly limited due to some RF interference from Speedlite only when connected to a remote FlexTT5.
To use this flash on a ControlTL radio mounted on a camera at HSS shutter speeds, you first need to enable HSS mode in the flash. Mount the 270EX directly on a camera (no radio in-between) and enable HSS mode via the camera’s menus. Once that mode is enabled, the flash will work properly at HSS shutter speeds when mounted on a MiniTT1 or FlexTT5 when used as a transmitter. HSS operation is automatic (no need to set it) when used on a FlexTT5 as a receiver.
This flash may have occasional exposure issues when used on a MiniTT1 or FlexTT5 mounted directly on certain cameras like the 5D Mark II, 40D, 20D, and possibly others.
270EX II
Can be used on the MiniTT1 or FlexTT5 (Transmit or Receive) in ETTL mode.
Significantly range limited due to RF interference from flash only when connected to a remote FlexTT5. See Long Range Performance.

This flash may have occasional exposure issues when used on a MiniTT1 or FlexTT5 mounted directly on certain cameras like the 5D Mark II, 40D, 20D, and possibly others.
This flash will not do AF assist, as it uses the flash itself to do AF assist on camera, rather than using IR like other flashes. As such, this different mode is not supported.
320EX
Full Feature Compatiblity
Excellent range performance with this flash.
Some RF interference present when LED lamp is on.

Previous Generation
