The Sony HVL-F45RM Wireless Radio Flash

The Sony HVL-F45RM Wireless Radio Flash is a compact external flash that lets you quickly create a portable lighting setup. Key features include:

* Guide number of 148 feet at ISO 100 and 105mm

* 8° to 150° tilt, 360° rotation (180° in either direction)

* Zoom range of 24 to 105mm

* 2.4 GHz Radio Transceiver with 98’ Range

What’s New. The HVL-F45RM is 10% smaller and lighter than its predecessor, and has a faster recycle time and improved guide number. Oh yea, it has a built-in 2.4GHz transceiver compatible with Sony’s Wireless Radio System.

Output. This flash has a guide number of 148 feet at ISO 100 and 105mm with the ability to produce around 210 full-power flashes on a fully charged set of batteries. The HVL-F45RM uses four AA batteries (not included).

Built-In LED. Its 5500K LED has a 400 lux output at 1.6 feet and 10 power levels. It has coverage for 35mm lenses and will illuminate subjects approximately 3.3 feet away when set to ISO 3200 and f/5.6 during movie shooting. It can continuously fire ten flashes per second for up to forty seconds, and a fully charged set of batteries will power it for about four hours.

Built-In Transceiver. This flash is equipped with a 2.4 GH transmitter, meaning that it can function as a radio commander or remote as part of Sony’s radio wireless system. It has a 98-foot operating range and doesn’t require line of sight. It’ll support fifteen flashes in five groups on one of fourteen channels. It’s fully supported by Sony’s P-TTL/ADI metering system, including high-speed sync and ratio control.

Bounce, Rotation, and Zoom. You can rotate the HVL-F45RM 360°—180° in either direction—and tilt it from -8° to 150° for full bounce-flash capability. It has a 24-105mm zoom range, which you can expand to 15mm with a pull-out diffusion panel.

Flash Control. The HVL-F45RM offers three flash-distribution modes: standard, center (guide number priority), and even (wide-angle priority), each of which change how the flash affects your scene or subject. You also get manual flash control from 1/1 to 1/128 power in 1/3- or 1/2-EV steps. This flash has an improved 0.1-2.5 second recycle time.

If you don't see exactly what you're looking for and that makes you sad, please give us a shout. We might have good news for you. Here's a link to our contact form.

We offer a 3-day inspection period on all sales, during which time you may return the item for a refund of the purchase price, not including shipping.

On this item, we include a LensAuthority 90-day limited warranty. This warranty covers damage that arises from normal use of the item. It does NOT cover accidental or intentional damage. More details are available in our FAQ section.

In addition to the standard 90-day warranty, you may have the option to purchase an extended warranty. If we're able to offer an extended warranty on this item, you'll see a checkbox to add that warranty - see the area just above the "Add to Cart" button.

If you select the extended warranty, you'll get additional protection from Consumer Priority Service ("CPS"). The CPS warranty will take effect after our 90-day warranty ends. However, the CPS warranty term would begin on the date of purchase. For example, if you buy an item with a 2-year extended warranty today, your coverage would end two years from today.
