After the latest firmware update on Dec. 19, PocketWizard claims "compatibility with 600EX-RT" among other things. Am I to believe that the MiniTT1 will now trigger the 600EX directly? (i.e. without the use of some other radio receiver attached to it). What exactly does "compatibility with 600EX-RT" mean? My email and phone call to PW have yielded no results (yet).

Try as I might, I can't get it to work in my scenario (with a 5DIII) and I cannot find any indication that anyone else in the world has either.

Does anyone here have any experience with this?

I e-mailed the same question to PW and received a reply within an hour or two. Very responsive. In short, the answer was that a TT5 is still required on the 600EX. It will trigger the flash with ETTL functionality, but it does not use the same radio frequency as the 600EX.

Doug, thanks for the reply.
