Camera & flash compatibilities
Canon Camera compatibility
|Rebel SL3||77D||6D Mark II||1Dx Mark II|
|Rebel T4i||80D||7D Mark II||1Dx Mark III|
|Rebel T8i||90D||5D Mark III||*R3|
|*EOS R||5D Mark IV||*R5|
*NOTE: When using the Canon R, R3, R5, R6, R6-II and R7 mirrorless cameras with Profoto, Paul C Buff (other than the LINK), or Godox strobe, HSS (High Speed Sync) is only available using manual power levels, and TTL power levels up to your cameras X-Sync speed. However, when using PocketWizard FlexTT5 or FlexTT6 radios with Canon Speedlites, HSS can be used in either manual or TTL exposure modes.
Most strobe manufacturers do not offer an adequate adjustable valued pre-flash command for Canon mirrorless when using TTL mode. This results in a metering exposure error within the Canon mirrorless camera bodies. The FlexTT5 and FlexTT6 radios and the LINK can trigger the necessary pre-flash for proper TTL exposure. All remote flashes can be used with HSS in manual exposure settings as no pre-flash is required.
*The Paul C. Buff LINK is now compatible with TTL dynamic pre-flash and use of the PocketWizard FlexTT5 or FlexTT6 is not needed for shutter speeds over X-Sync.
Canon Speedlite compatibility
Must be used with PocketWizard FlexTT5 or FlexTT6 (no direct compatibility between the Raven and Canon Speedlites at this time)
*All Canon speedlites need to be set to TTL mode when used with PocketWizard FlexTT5 and FlexTT6 for power level control with the Raven
Nikon Camera compatibility
*Raven App Firmware 3.0.92 or later
**Pending fine optimization for FP sync
Nikon Speedlights compatibility
Must be used with PocketWizard FlexTT5 (no direct compatibility between the Raven and Nikon Speedlights at this time)
*All Nikon speedlights need to be set to TTL mode when used with the PocketWizard FlexTT5 for power level control with the Raven.
X1D Mk II, X2D

Raven operates Profoto strobes on their TTL-based operating protocol that allows the photographer to use TTL or Manual mode and allows for the ability to set exact power levels to the strobes. Why the Profoto AirTTL does not offer direct power level setting is unknown, but this does give the Raven an advantage by offering this feature where the AirTTL fails to deliver.
However, within the Profoto TTL operating protocol, there is a 4-stop relative power level limit that prevents power levels from exceeding more than 4 stops between any two flashes no matter if you are using TTL or Manual mode.
Profoto limits TTL command control to a +/-2 stop range, which results in a maximum of 4 stops of adjustment between any two flashes.
It is recommended to deactivate any zones that you are not using so the power level in that unused zone will not create a power limit on the zones that are actively used.
