New software is now available
Thanks to the version 2.0 (or later) software update, external flash can be controlled from the camera.
GN60 power and continuous shooting support
The high GN60 output and 220 times continuous emission of this flash unit provides plenty of power for various shooting.
Quick Shift Bounce and direct light output level button for smoother operation
Quick Shift Bounce allows to use 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 and it allows fast flash position changes. (90° left and right, 150° up/8° 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 meters 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 groups for wireless flash control at distances of up to 30 meters. 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.
