GN60 High-output flash supports the latest camera technology
This durable high-output GN60 flash unit delivers levels of sophistication and camera communication that only Sony can offer, achieving reliable flash at high continuous shooting speeds and sync at shutter speeds up to 1/400 sec. Intuitive operation via the camera interface, quick shift bounce, and wireless radio communication add refined control and versatility.
Intelligent communication with the latest Alpha bodies
The Alpha Lighting System has evolved in parallel with Alpha camera bodies to give creators optimum illumination in a wide range of applications. A level of integration that is only possible with original Sony products achieves detailed communication with compatible camera bodies for reliable and precise light control.
Stable high-power output that satisfies professional needs
The HVL-F60RM2 is designed and manufactured by Sony, so it can communicate with Alpha cameras to deliver consistent GN60 light output at every flash. The HVL-F60RM2 supports focal lengths from 20mm (14mm with the wide panel) to 200mm.
Flash control linked to camera face detection
The HVL-F60RM2 works with a compatible camera’s face detection to provide ideal lighting for the main subject, even in groups. In addition, white balance is automatically adjusted so that the subject’s face is rendered with natural color.
Auto white balance accuracy
Thanks to in-house design, this advanced flash unit transfers color temperature data to the camera where that data is used to precisely adjust white balance so that colors are rendered naturally in any situation, that only original equipment can achieve.
Light output optimized for focal length and image size
Flash illumination angle is automatically adjusted to match the focal length of the lens used over a 20 -200mm range (14mm w/ wide panel -200mm). Light distribution is also adjusted for optimum illumination with full-frame or APS-C format.
Fast recycle and dependable high-speed continuous flash
Advanced electronics and construction contribute to fast recycle times and allow continuous flash shooting for extended periods of time. A set of four batteries can provide power for more than 240 flashes with 1.7 second recycle time3. The optional FA-EBA1 external flash battery adapter can be used to provide recycle times as fast as 0.6 seconds.
Innovative overheating prevention
The use of heat resistant materials plus an optimized flash algorithm provides higher resistance to overheating that allows longer flash shooting sessions
Stable high-speed continuous flash shooting
The HVL-F60RM2 can continuously provide flash for up to 200 frames in high-speed bursts at up to 10 fps with a compatible camera. Missed frames dues to flash sync failure are avoided, providing stable continuous shooting support. With the electronic shutter on a compatible camera, up to approx. 20 flashes per second can be produced continuously for more than 1 second. The FA-EBA1 external flash battery allows approx. 20 flashes per second for more than 10 seconds
Up to 1/400 sec. shutter sync with a compatible for new expression
Used with a compatible camera body the HVL-F60RM2 allows flash sync up to 1/400 sec. This makes it possible to deemphasize the background while using flash to illuminate the main subject, illuminate moving subjects against a bright background, and more.
Per-frame P-TTL flash control adapts to changing light
When used with a compatible camera, high-speed control sequencing in the camera uses pre-flash to control each individual flash during continuous bursts, even when tracking fast-moving subjects in scenes where the light changes dramatically.
High-speed, slow, and rear-curtain sync
High-speed sync (HSS) works at all shutter speeds and can be used with the aperture wide open to produce beautiful background bokeh for portraits. Slow sync and rear-curtain sync are also supported.
Selectable flash distribution types
Three selectable flash distribution types are provided: Standard (STD), GN priority (CENTER), and wide-angle priority (EVEN).
