So I bought the TT1 Pocket Wizards to sync at 1/1000 with my PWII and it worked pretty great:

The background is so dark and I love it, but the problem is when I try to shoot indoors and have a room light with my sb900 on top of the tt1, the room light refuses to go off with my flash. That and even with outdoor shooting the consistency of the TT1 + PWII combo is so much lower than the PWII-only set-up.

I set one of the channels to -2000 and the other one I reset to factory cause I thought that might have been causing it, but still not dice. I'm this close to returning the TT1 and getting a PWII back, unless OTAP can find where I'm messing up. Thanks guys

sorry, what do you mean by room light?

Oh like at a reception hall, I'll set up a light on the corner to fill in the shadows and give a little kick/side lighting. Or at the church

And that place is the abandoned water park that Rob and Big went to, off the 15 on the way to Vegas

i just tried out what you were describing. flash on the tt1 has to be in manual to trigger 2nd flash. TTL no workie, but maybe you knew that?

Yeah, I saw a cop waiting on the 15 so I drove in and tucked my car behind a building, lol:

I wouldn't go there alone but it felt pretty safe. Safer than the hotels I broke into in NY. I was more scared of rattlesnakes than anything (I HATE snakes)

Yeah that doesn't work. I always shoot in manual and last time it would fire like a second after the shutter went off and tonight it just wouldn't fire.

Yup that works. Only thing is it seems like my top sync speed is 1/200. Not that thats an issue since I'll prob use that channel more for indoors. Thanks, dude
