Next, PocketWizard created its FlexTT5 system that intercepted the TTL signal by placing the transmitter between the hotshoe and the flash. The Flex sent that signal to a remote receiver which then fed the TTL information to the off-camera flash via the hotshoe. Two years ago, Canon shook things up by introducing the 600EX-RT that incorporated a built-in radio control that would work only with other 600EX-RT flashes and the new ST-E3 RT dedicated transmitter (though the 600EX-RT would still work in optical infrared mode with older Canon TTL flashes).
Use the FT-16S transmitter to set your power level remotely, then place the Cells II-C in the hotshoe of the camera. It will transmit your camera’s shutter speed to the flash via the FT-16S receiver. Set your flash to the high-speed sync setting, and your 850 will now sync with your camera at shutter speeds as high as second. It’s a high-end feature that rivals $500 flashes just by adding in the $60 Cells II-C transmitter. An added level of convenience with the Neewer 850 system is that I can charge one battery per flash.
Are you using quality alkaline AAA batteries in your units? 10. Is the transmitter set to the type of flash you are using (Hc for Canon; Hn for Nikon)? If none of these tips work, then the next most likely problem is that your flash head is worn out and not sending a clean signal. This happens with Canon 580EX II flashes as they age; when it does, I simply send them to Canon Professional Services and they replace the flash head assembly for about $125. A simple test to see if this is the problem is to check whether the flashes will trigger in optical infrared-only mode.
