Sony Alpha Series DSLR Flash/ Video Light, Model HVLF43M
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.
- 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 low-light 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)
- 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 light.
- 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.
