This wireless manual flashgun is packed with handy features
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.
