Hello all, I'm thinking about getting a pocket wizard and am wondering if it will activate the autofocus as I want to mount my camera on a 10 or 15' pole and will not be able to pre focus it. I would welcome any suggestions..thanks in advance!!!!!
PocketWizards can be use as remotes for flash or camera. PocketWizard WILL activate autofocus as long as the camera is not setup for back button only AF activation. Using PocketWizard Plus III I can do a half-press on the remote will activates autofocus.Pocket Wizard will not activate the autofocus. It will communicate with another pocket wizard device, allowing you to use off-camera flash.
This would be a much better solution if you want to see what your camera sees - You can use a laptop or tablet to control pretty much all aspects of your camera's shooting functions with CamRanger- and actually see what you are shooting.Have you considered CamRanger?
