Reason #1 :More Bang for the Buck.

Yes, you get a ridiculous amount of features in the Pocket wizard plus III’s for the low cost of $139.99 opposed to how much the Pocket wizard plus II’s which I bought at around $189.99 a few years ago.

Reason #2 :More options to shoot in high photographer traffic areas.

32 Channels
• Benefit: I can now shoot in areas where there are a high concentration of photographers also using pocket wizards and not worry about having an available channel.)


Reason #3 : No more walking back and forth to turn on and off your lights.

Selective Quad-Zone Triggering
• Benefit: I can now shoot and turn on or off the lighting without moving to each off camera light location.

Reason #4 : Faster settings review and setup.

Simple User Interface
• Benefit: Faster operation time allowing you more time to capture the image. This is a huge improvement for me from the Plus IIs as now I can see what is going on with the LCD that can be lit up when dark.

Reason #5 : Always up to date.

Up to Date
• Benefit: Know that the firmware can always be upgraded.

Check out the interview I conducted at WPPI 2012 with Pocketwizard below:

I am seriously thinking of selling my Pocketwizard plus II’s and picking up the plus III’s . You should really consider it as well.
