    Hi,

    I need your expert help if you don't mind. I ordered a cable from Lonnie at Flashzebra to go from my TT5 PocketWizard to my D700 for remote shutter actuation. Here's my prob, I can't find any specific PW video or such that tells exactly how to make it happen.

    I think I figured it out, can you tell me if I'm off? I'm a little concerned about blowing it all up [​IMG]

    Connections I have:
    1) the 3.5mm cable end to the TT5 input where there is an outline of a camera
    2) The 10-pin side of cable to the front of the D700

    Guessing here to fire it remotely:

    I simply set the Pocket Wizards to same chan and the camera to timer using the left "outside knob" and set the timer "menu" to a few seconds and it just works when I trigger it from my PWIIs or TT1?

    Thanks!

    2Wheel...

    That sounds right.. but to be honest with you.. I have never done it.. just looked into it. There are those here with a lot more PW experience than I have.. and can probably answer the questions better. I use my PW's a lot.. but usually don't use remote camera actuation. I believe the tt5 has to be in basic trigger mode.. not TTL.. which can be done with the setup utility.

    Here are some links you might find handy.
