If it's just a single contact point, you might be able to slide the unit into the hotshoe in either direction.1) They put the controls on the wrong side. Slim profile is good, but when one is handholding (Esp if its a bigger lens) its the right hand which controls the camera and buttons, not the left (which is lens holding). So having the controls on the left means you've got to reach over to adjust them, rather than having them easily available to either hand on the back or to the right, controlling hand, on the right side.
I can't think of any reason why not, as long as you assign the Plus IIs to groups controlled by the four frequencies they can receive.$139 is an OK price. They way you guys were talking, I was hoping for less.
One thing I'd like to know...is whether or not you could use Plus II units and still use the 'groups' function of the Plus III.
After using both the Flex (intelligent) units and plus IIs (dumb) units PW will ALWAYS have two separate products the cheaper "dumb" trigger for manual use and the more expensive "intelligent" unit for TTL and high speed sync. The other big name in mainstream is Radio Poppers. They have the exact same story, cheaper dumb triggers and more expensive intelligent units.
I have 2 of the Plus iiis on order and am itching to get them in. I'll probably drop for another 2 once they actually are in the market or if I can land on some cheap plus iis. If you need high speed sync get a flex or mini on the camera and a plus for the flash. Read here PocketWizard® - HyperSync
The plus III offers EXACTLY what it should, a slimmer design, built in antenna, group control, USB firmware upgrade (plus power through USB), and high speed camera trigger.
