High-output, high-speed flash with quick operation:
The HVL-F60RM clip-on flash unit features high GN60 power, high-speed continuous shooting support and fast operation: ideal for advanced to professional users. Wireless radio commander/receiver functionality is included.
GN60 power and continuous shooting support:
The high GN60 output and 220 times continuous emission of this flash unit provide plenty of power.
Charge cycle time is 1.7 seconds, or just 0.6 seconds with the External Battery Adaptor (FA-EBA1) (optional) for continuous shooting. Proper flash synchronization is maintained during continuous shooting, minimizing flash misfires and ruined shots.
Quick Shift Bounce allows use of the lighting features from horizontal to vertical:
Quick Shift Bounce is Sony's original flash-head rotating mechanism with the main unit tiltable from horizontal to vertical, allowing fast flash position changes. (90 degrees left and right, 150 degrees up / 8 degrees down)
Direct output adjustment:
An independent light output level button (LEVEL -/+ button) allows direct control of output or compensation for efficient workflow. Paired wireless flashes can also be easily adjusted via a LCD panel.
Reliable multi-flash radio control:
In addition to optical remote triggering, wireless radio triggering is supported. Wireless radio communication works reliably at distances of up to 30 metres and even around obstacles or in bright conditions. A total of 15 flash units can be assigned to up to 5 groups.
Stable wireless radio communication:
Conventional optical triggering and wireless radio triggering cover a wide range of situations. A HVL-F60RM mounted on a compatible camera can be paired with off-camera units to provide reliable communication over long distances in conditions that would make optical communication difficult. Slow sync, rear-curtain sync and multi flash are supported.
Multi-flash radio control:
Up to 15 flash units can be assigned to up to 5 groups5 for wireless flash control at distances of up to 30 metres.4 Optional Wireless Radio Commander (FA-WRC1M) and Wireless Radio Receiver (FA-WRR1) units allow the HVL-F60RM to be used with Sony flash units that do not have built-in radio wireless capability, as well as the radio-capable HVL-F45RM.
Common features for uncommon lighting techniques:
Control the ideal combination of shutter speed and flash intensity.
P-TTL flash control: Appropriate flash output is determined by using pre-flash to measure exposure.
LED light and AF assist: Not only for the studio, but also for outdoor shooting, a built-in LED light is very useful. It also functions as an AF assist light to ensure accurate autofocus operation in dim lighting. The LED can make manual focus easier in dark situations too.
Colour filters: The supplied colour filters can be used to match or complement existing lighting, in order to achieve natural white balance, or to create a specific atmosphere.
