The flash head and internal layout of the HVL-F28RM have been redesigned for reduced size and greater portability, making it a perfect match for compact mirrorless cameras. Although it slips easily into a pocket, the HVL-F28RM delivers output that rivals the high-end HVL-F45RM at the same illumination angle and can be effectively used for bounce lighting in a wide range of shooting situations.
The HVL-F28RM features stable radio wireless communication. One HVL-F28RM that will function as a commander can be mounted on a compatible camera and paired with a second off-camera HVL-F28RM unit that will function as a receiver. Radio communication provides reliable communication over longer distances than are possible with optical communication, even in bright sunlight or when there are obstacles between the camera and subject. When used as a flash commander the HVL-F28RM can control up to 15 flash and/or receiver units in five groups at distances of up to 114 ft/35 m for extraordinary lighting control versatility.
