The Norman Battery Portable Kit With PocketWizard
Norman has announced that their Battery Portable Kits will now feature lampheads with built-in PocketWizard radio transceivers. This addition allows you to trip single or multiple remote flash systems without the aid of a trip cord or photo eye. The PocketWizard can be set to operate from various channels and the transceiver also provides a confirmation when the signal has been received. It is possible to upgrade the Norman 200B, 200C, and 400B Battery Portable systems by adding the lamphead with built-in transceiver since it plugs directly into the unit and does not require modification. Contact: Photo Control Corporation, 4800 Quebec Ave. N, Minneapolis, MN 55428; (763) 537-3601.
