Meishi Tsuya, General Manager of Sekonic Corporation says,

“With these exciting product enhancements, Sekonic professional series light meters increase their value to the working professional photographer. In addition, they address the demands of wireless shooters using the latest PocketWizard® technology with Sekonic wireless meters.”

The RT-32CTL is an optional module for the L-358 FlashMaster, L-758D and L-785CINE. It is integrated into the L-758DR DigitalMaster as standard. Using it, photographers can accurately measure flash output for setups created using the PocketWizard ControlTL system in manual Power Control mode.

Compatible with the PocketWizard Plus/II/III, MultiMAX, FlexTT5, ST4 and MC2 receivers, the RT-32CTL provides control of ControlTL Zones (A, B, C) and Quad-Triggering Zones (A, B, C, D) directly from your Sekonic flash meter. A firmware update is required to access the new features, which can be installed by customers using their meter’s mini-USB port.

There will be different versions for European (CE) and North American (FCC) markets using different frequencies. Release date is set “at the beginning of March 2012”, i.e. imminently. Sekonic will offer an “upgrade path” for customers who recently purchased their wireless flash meters.
