Sekonic

More choices for Wireless Triggering Freedom

Over 20 years ago, Sekonic created a totally new way to free photographers from wires in the studio and on-location. With a radio module plugged into a Sekonic meter, photographers can trigger any electronic strobe connected to a PocketWizard radio and measure the light simultaneously in addition to power control. Adding to the flexibility of Sekonic’s wireless family, Elinchrom & Phottix modules offer photographers full EL-Skyport triggering and power-control capabilities, while Phottix users have Strato II and Ares II triggering capabilities. Expanding the Sekonic wireless compatibility, Godox and broncolor now join the family of wireless triggering with full power control. Simple choose the wireless brand transmitter module you want and plug it into the L-858D and you’re ready.
