The RF60 is de­signed as a man­ual flash, so with no through-the-lens (TTL) me­ter­ing you shouldn’t ex­pect the con­ve­nience of full auto. In­stead, this flash uses the stan­dard ISO fit­ting that slots into most cam­era hot­shoes. The man­ual fea­tures en­able 22 lev­els of power ad­just­ment from its max­i­mum GN of 56 at ISO100.

Fea­tur­ing an in­te­grated wire­less trans­ceiver, one RF60 is able to com­mu­ni­cate with and con­trol oth­ers. Once you’ve got them set up, each flash can be as­signed to a group, and you can have up to four groups. A mas­ter flash can then be as­signed to con­trol the power of each group us­ing the but­tons and LCD in­ter­face on the back – the in­ter­face is easy enough to use.

High-speed flash is handy when shoot­ing out­door por­traits, as it en­ables you to use large aper­tures. The RF60’s HSS Sym­pa­thy mode is de­signed to work along­side a TTL-flash in a dual flash setup, and works by ex­tend­ing the nor­mal flash du­ra­tion so it can work above the cam­era’s usual flash sync speed.
