so last night I needed to setup my softbox attached w/ the PocketWizard FlexTT5, the AC5 Shield and of course a 580EX II flash. after removing a piece of screw, i got it to fit inside the softbox.
Since the wife and kid were asleep, decided to play around w/ the flash. then I ran into a problem.
PW miniTT1 on camera (5D2)
PW FlexTT5, AC5 Shield and 580EX II
manual 1/8000 f22 ISO 100, flash in ETTL mode, Flex/Mini set for HSS AUTO and Rear begins at 1/100 : Flash pop. no problem. it worked. then 5 seconds later, the flash pop again. at first I thought I press the shutter on the camera. but i didnt. try again. the same. I went as far as 1/320 f22 - same. then to f18 - same. then to f16 - i think it stopped. I also removed the Ac5 Shield and still getting the problem
Txt my bubby and asked him to see if this happening to him. It was late, so i dunno what he came up w/. I think he had the same problem too. He was gonna test it w/ his 5D as well... but it was late, i went to sleep so no idea what happen. he's on the road now to work.... I didnt test it on the 40D since that camera was in the bedroom where the family was sleeping!
those that has the PW Flex/Mini. can you test this out??
