  • ADI Flash Metering - ADI (Advanced Distance Integration) metering capability enables the HVL-F42AM to work more effectively with lenses equipped with distance encoders -- combining TTL (through-the-lens) flash metering with guide number control calculated automatically according to the distance to the subject, the ambient light and the pre-flash reflectivity of the subject
  • Simple Controls, Flash Test Button - Flash controls are simple and easy to operate -- and a quick-reference flash test button provides both flash ready (amber) and proper exposure (green) signals
