The trick is to configure your PocketWizards‘ C2 configuration to „Basic Trigger Mode“ and „Automatic Camera Detection“
Step by step guide
Step 1: Install or update the PocketWizard Utility
I always update the software to its newest version. You can download it from PocketWizard.com support section. Install or update by running the installer.
Step 2: Update the MiniTT1 firmware
After connecting the PocketWizard MiniTT1 to your computer by USB the utility will recognize your device and show the „Settings“ screen.
Hint: if you leave the TT1 switched on while connecting, the utility shows its battery status.
Switch to the „Update“ section and press the „Check For Updates“ button and follow the instructions. Be careful and save your configuration for later use as the utility does a factory reset and sometimes fails to reload your previous settings.
Step 3: C1 settings for your main camera
My main camera is a Canon 5D MKII with two flashes, a 580 EXII and a 430 EXII. I leave the C1 configuration on my PocketWizard to my Canon equipment. So my basic settings are „Camera Model: Canon 5D MKII“ and „Basic Trigger Off“.
Step 4: C2 settings for our beloved Fuji camera
As the Fuji cams are not compatible with ETTL and all, we can only use the PocketWizard MiniTT1 to trigger the flashes. The settings for C2 are „Camera Model: Auto Detect“ and „Basic Trigger On“.
Press „Apply Changes“ to write your new settings to the device.
Step 5: Repeat with your FlexTT5
Apply the same C1/C2 settings to your PocketWizard FlexTT5 devices.
Step 6: Start shooting
Connect your MiniTT1 to the Fuji X-E1, turn it to C2 and check the flash settings in your camera. Be sure to have turned off ‚Silent Mode‘ as it disables the camera’s flash mode.
Drop a flash onto your FlexTT5, turn it to C2 as well set your flash to manual mode.
