    FEATURES

    High-power compact flash


    This dramatically downsized[FN|Downsized in height and width by approx. 18% and 34% respectively, compared with HVL-F43M.] compact lightweight clip-on flash with guide number (GN) 45[FN|105 mm at ISO 100 in meters] is best suited to use with the a7 series. The flash supplies powerful output even for bounce lighting, recycling only takes approx. 2.5 seconds[FN|With 1/1 manual flash emission while using alkaline batteries], and stamina in performance delivers up to approx. 210 bursts[FN|With 1/1 manual flash emission while using alkaline batteries].

    Built-in wireless radio control 


    Use this flash with a compatible camera[FN|Dependent on camera body and lens specifications.], for multi-flash shooting, even under strong sunlight or from relatively distant location thanks to its radio-controlled system. HVL-F45RM can be either wireless commander or receiver. As a commander, HVL-F45RM supports up to 15 units of compatible flashes or receivers in up to 5 groups[FN|Up to 5 groups in GROUP mode setting, up to 3 groups in TTL or Manual mode settings.], for connecting with remote units at up to 30 meters[FN|According to Sony’s internal measurement conditions.]. It also works with optical wireless communications.

    Bounce head for flexible lighting


    HVL-F45RM bounce head for flexible lighting rotates 360° horizontally (180° in both left and right directions) and also tilts 150° upward and 8° downward, providing the illumination you want depending on shooting situations.

    Quick Navi


    Sony’s Quick Navi control interface provides easy, intuitive access to lighting parameters via one easy press of “Fn” button. Everything you need to know is right there on the screen and accessible using a few buttons and control wheel, thereby minimising the necessary operations required to adjust settings before you shoot.

    Customisable key assignment


    Key customisation function allows easy assignment of frequently used features for quick operation. Customisable settings include lighting compensation level and flash output level. Customisable keys are highlighted in red.

    Tab-structure menus


    You’ll enjoy effortless operation of flash features. Tab-structure menus on the LCD screen are the same as those on the camera body for fast access and intuitive use.

    LED light and AF illuminator [FN|Depending on the camera,this function is not available.For details,see product information page.http://www.sony.net/flash/f45rm/]


    Cool running and energy efficient, the LED light enables you to create natural lighting and shadows for both movies and stills. Plus, AF illuminator [FN|Depending on the camera,this function is not available.For details,see product information page.http://www.sony.net/flash/f45rm/] supplies fill light to focus more easily on a subject in dark surroundings.

    Dust- and moisture-resistant design[FN|Structure designed for dust and moisture resistance, but does not prevent all dust or moisture ingress.]


    Count on reliable flash even in challenging outdoor conditions with specially designed seals at joints around the durable body to keep out dust and moisture[FN|Structure designed for dust and moisture resistance, but does not prevent all dust or moisture ingress.]. This is a particular bonus in outdoor usage where you have no control over various factors including wind and environmental dust.[FN|Structure designed for dust and moisture resistance, but does not prevent all dust or moisture ingress.]

    Test flash mode


    The test flash mode enables you to check shadows on the subject before taking photos, and also to check the light level using an external flash meter, which is essential for studio photography. The light level of the test flash depends on the light level setting in manual flash (M) mode, and the flash unit fires with a light level of 1/1 in through-the-lens (TTL) mode.

    Multi/Micro USB port


    This flash features Multi/Micro USB port for supporting software update to the latest version via connected PC.
