WPPI 2013 Tech Dispatch, Day 1

By John Rettie, Rangefinder Technical Editor

The show floor at WPPI was buzzing today with a slew of new products—check out a couple from today:

PocketWizard PlusX
Last year at WPPI, PocketWizard introduced the Plus III which was well received by photographers who need to work on complex photo shoots with multiple cameras and many flashes. This year PocketWizard introduced the PlusX which uses the same sleek looking body but has simplified electronics and a price of just $99. This makes it affordable for photographers who have simpler setups and don’t need more than ten channels. It’s still made in America and uses LPA Design’s patented “Auto-Sensing Transceiver Technology” that works as a transceiver meaning each unit can transit or receive as needed.

Sekonic Litemaster Pro Bundle
Sekonic has introduced a special bundle for the recently introduced 478D and 478DR light meters that includes a special edition of the X-Rite ColorChecker Passport and a Gray balance card. It enables photographers to create color profiles for different cameras.
