On Camera Winer -- Off Camera Looser

Outdoor Photo Guy, B&H Photo
29 March 2015
  • Excerpt: Excellent TTL control when mounted on the camera with no need for an adapter since it already has the new custom Multi Interface shoe. Easy to set up and easy to adjust direction for bouncing the light. I keep a light modifier on top of the flash to avoid any directional lighting problems.
  • Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Excellent On Camera Ttl
  • Cons: Adapter Compatibility, Wireless Flash Control

Off camera flash

  • Excerpt: In order to use the HVL-f60M off camera with the Sony A7r, you need to order the FA-CS1M multi interface shoe to go on the camera, and the FA-MC1AM Off-Camera Flash Cable, with two male ends in order to connect the flash to the camera.

Good Flash BUT.....

  • Excerpt: I use this SONY flash for my SONY A99 since I do not want to deal with third-party compatibility issues. The only problem I have encountered with this flash is that the shoe mounting lever is flimsy.

Decent flash

  • Excerpt: If purchased with the bundle, it is definitely worth buying. It helps illuminate subjects and diffuse light with the tilting flash head since the a7/r lacks an in-camera flash.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Lightweight

Great feature set

PVC, B&H Photo
10 April 2014
  • Excerpt: This flash has tremendous range and intelligence. Leave HSS on and shoot at whatever aperture you want. It gets it right nearly every time. It knows when you have the diffuser on and adjusts for it. I've never had a TTL flash with this precision before.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easy To Use, Fast Recycling, Powerful Output, Versatile
  • Cons: Bulky, Heavy

The flagship flash for Sony A7

mcsquared, B&H Photo
3 April 2014
  • Excerpt: I ordered this as part of a kit with the A7. It has a very clever design, and decent customizability. Here are the things I didn't expect: 1) It doesn't include tungsten and florescent diffusers, as Nikons do. 2) It can't pivot perpendicular to the focal plane. This limits your options to bounce.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Powerful Output, Versatile
  • Cons: Bulky, Design Considerations, Design Flaws
