Sony HVL-F43M Specification

Sony HVL-F43M Specification
External Flash/Video Light
The Sony® HVL-F43M flash unit delivers flexible lighting control for
photographers. The innovative “Quick Shift Bounce” system allows the flash to
pivot 90 degrees left and right, and Wireless Ratio Control allows the wireless
control of up to three groups of flashes with user-selected luminosity ratios.
Key Features
High-power illumination
High-power illumination (guide number: 43)
New LED video light
With the new built-in LED video light it has never been easier to switch between stills and movie shooting even in lowlight conditions. LED enables checking and setting the light and shadow conditions before shooting still image or movie
with live view function of EVF equipped camera. Maximum luminance of 400 lux/(0.5m), with illuminating distance of
approximately 3-1/4 feet (1m) at ISO3200/F5.6.
Longer effective range
Longer effective range of over 30 ft. (10.5m)
“Quick Shift Bounce”
The innovative “Quick Shift Bounce” system allows the HVL-F43M to orbit 90 degrees left and right, allowing you to maintain
horizontal light distribution even when shooting vertically. In addition to pivoting side-to-side, the flash unit can also tilt
down 8 degrees or back 150 degrees, ensuring customers the lighting freedom they need to capture that perfect shot.
Versatile bounce angles
Versatile bounce angles: 90° up, 90° left. This allows the flash head to be rotated while maintaining the set bounce angle,
so you can quickly switch between horizontal and vertical format without changing the light angle.
Built-In Bounce sheet
The built-in bounce sheet can be used even when shooting in a vertical position without changing the angle of reflected
Auto white balance
Auto white balance (signals color temp. to camera)
Auto zoom
Auto zoom optimized for camera sensor size
Dust and Moisture resistant design
Sealing materials are set at joints of outer materials (body, LCD panel, Mounting Foot etc.) and around movement/
operating parts thereby increasing the life of your flash unit.
Modeling light capability
Modeling light capability allows the HVL-F43M to pulse, helping photographers determine where shadows will fall before
taking the picture, so they can alter lighting or subject positioning as necessary.
Retractable wide-angle panel
Retractable wide-angle panel (15mm angle)
Wireless Ratio Control
Wireless Ratio Control allows customers to wirelessly control up to three groups of flashes, as well as specify the luminosity
ratio for each group, so they can enjoy multiple-flash lighting techniques without the need for special equipment or
tedious exposure settings.
