Product Details

Sony External Flash/Video Light - HVLF60M

Light the way to photographic perfection with this Sony external flash/video light. It sits on top of your Sony camera to provide plenty of illumination when you need a helping hand. It tilts up by 150 degrees so that you can bounce light off the ceiling for a quick lightbox effect, or you can aim it directly at your subject if you want a little bit of fill flash. This mounted flash also swivels left or right so that you can add other lighting effects as necessary. It even includes a slide-out bounce sheet for portrait shots.

Most importantly, this Sony flash incorporates advanced distance integration metering to calculate how far away your subject is and then combines it with through-the-lens flash metering so that it can automatically calculate how much extra light you need. You can also override this manually to set up unique lighting or to combine it with a multi-light setup. When you need to set it up away from the camera, place this Sony external flash/video light on the included mini stand to get the right angle.


  • High-illumination output
    Delivers high-illumination output in a compact, lightweight body, with an effective range of more than 197 feet (60m) and guide number 60. (Guide number measures the illumination capability of the flash; the higher the number, the higher the light output. Tested at ISO100, 105mm)
  • 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 1200 lux/(0.5m), with illuminating distance of approximately 6-1/2 feet (2m) at ISO3200/F5.6
  • Quick Shift Bounce
    Sony’s patented “Quick Shift Bounce” system allows the HVL-F60M to quickly 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 10 degrees or back 150 degrees, ensuring customers the lighting freedom they need to capture that perfect shot
  • Quick Navi and Large Dot Matrix LCD
    Quick Navi control is the intuitive User Interface from Sony Alpha camera bodies that make it a snap to locate and change settings. A large dot matrix LCD display is easy-to see and intuitive button layout makes it easy to configure the HVL-F60M for a variety of shooting needs
  • 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
  • Auto White Balance compensation
    Auto White Balance compensation allows for more accurate white balance in flash photography sending color temperature information from the HVL-F60M to the camera, where it is incorporated into the camera’s white balance settings
  • Modeling light capability
    Modeling light capability allows the HVL-F60M to pulse, helping photographers determine where shadows will fall before taking the picture, so they can alter lighting or subject positioning as necessary
  • Stroboscopic lighting control
    Stroboscopic lighting control lets the HVL-F60M fire multiple times during a single exposure, allowing customers to capture stroboscopic images where moving subjects are frozen several times in the frame
  • Advanced Distance Integration (ADI)
    ADI (Advanced Distance Integration) metering enables the HVL-F60M to work more effectively with lenses equipped with distance encoders -- combining TTL (through-the-lens) flash metering with guide number control are calculated automatically according to the distance to the subject, the ambient light and the pre-flash reflectivity of the subject
  • High-Speed Synchronization
    Other flashes only work well at shutter speeds synchronized from the camera (example: from 1/125 to 1/250 of a second). The Sony® HVL-F60M Flash Unit provides a High Speed Synchronization mode (HSS) that enables the flash to sync with shutter speeds from 1/500 to 1/4000 of a second to catch fast-moving subjects
  • Automatic focal-length adjustments
    The HVL-F60M automatically adjusts flash for focal-length settings from 24mm to 105mm, and a built-in, slide-out wide-angle panel increases wide-angle coverage to 15mm
  • Flash compensation operation
    As a new feature, the flash compensation settings can be operated with flash in addition to the settings made with camera body ( note: only with SLT-A99V and NEX-6 camera bodies)
  • Color Conversion Filter for LED Light, Built-in Diffuser for LED Light
    Using a built-in diffuser reduces glare and softens light. It can also lessen unnatural multiple shadows. Using a color conversion filter lets you change the color temperature to about 3,200K (at maximum brightness)
  • Slide-out bounce sheet
    The HVL-F60M features a slide-out bounce sheet built into the flash head, and can be used in portraits and other bounced light shots to direct light at a subject’s pupils to deliver more lively expression
  • Large Dot Matrix LCD
    The large, easy-to-see LCD display and intuitive button layout make it easy to configure the HVL-F60M for a variety of shooting needs
  • Mini-stand
    The HVL-F60M comes with a mini-stand that can stand on its own or be mounted to a tripod or lighting stand for increased wireless freedom. Folds up for easy storage
  • 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 the flash unit
