Sekonic/Pocket Wizard Question

p.1 #1 · Sekonic/Pocket Wizard Question


Just got a set of PW's Plus II Transceivers and a Sekonic 358 Light Meter.
PW's work fine, but when i try to fire them using the meter, nothing happens.
The chip in the back says: Sekonics RT Module-32.
I have the meter set to wireless mode & on Channel 1.
Usually when i have a problem like this it's usually me, but i cant figure it out.
Like i said the PW's work fine on the camera, and off as a remote fire, but the ole meter doesn't want to cooperate, Wondered if the chip was bad?
Would appreciate some help.
PW's are in a AB 1600.
regards,
Mike Allen

Make sure the 358 has a relatively fresh battery. Don't rely on the battery indicator on the meter.

When I first got the module I thought I had it set to chnl1 not realising you need to click the wheel over one more so the screen moves off the channel selection screen to use it.

I'm glad it isn't just me that got confused with it, it drove me nuts until I figured that out!

You'll need a different chip for the flexes. Your chip only works with non ctl radios. unless you make the flexes use standard channels and then you lose the ettl info'
