Stable GN46 output for a wide range of lighting needs

Stable GN46 output for a wide range of lighting needs

Because the HVL-F46RM is designed by Sony, it can communicate with a camera bodies to deliver consistent GN46 light output that meets professional lighting needs. Focal lengths from 24mm (15mm with the wide panel) to 105mm are supported.

Stable high-speed continuous flash shooting

Stable high-speed continuous flash shooting

With a compatible camera the HVL-F46RM can continuously provide flash for up to 60 frames in high-speed bursts at up to 10 fps. Missed frames dues to flash sync failure are avoided, providing stable continuous shooting support.

Up to 1/400 sec. shutter sync with a compatible camera for new expression

Up to 1/400 sec. shutter sync with a compatible camera for new expression

Used with a compatible camera body the HVL-F46RM allows flash sync up to 1/400 sec. This makes it possible to deemphasise the background while using flash to illuminate the main subject, illuminate moving subjects against a bright background, and more.

Per-frame P-TTL flash control adapts to changing light

Per-frame P-TTL flash control adapts to changing light

When used with a compatible camera, high-speed control sequencing in the camera uses pre-flash to control each individual flash during continuous bursts, even when tracking fast-moving subjects in scenes where the light changes dramatically.

Minimal flash trigger time lag

Minimal flash trigger time lag

When using the HVL-F46RM in combination with a compatible camera, time lag between pressing the shutter button and flash output is significantly reduced*6 so that fleeting moments can be captured with confidence.

Flash control linked to camera face detection

Flash control linked to camera face detection

With a compatible camera, white balance is automatically adjusted so that the subject's face is rendered with natural colour. The HVL-F46RM works with a compatible camera face detection to provide ideal lighting for the main subject, even in groups.

Auto white balance accuracy that only original equipment can achieve

Auto white balance accuracy that only original equipment can achieve

Thanks to in-house design, this advanced flash unit transfers colour temperature data to the camera where that data is used to precisely adjust white balance so that colours are rendered naturally in any situation.

High-speed, slow, and rear-curtain sync

High-speed, slow, and rear-curtain sync

High-speed sync works at all shutter speeds, and can be used with the aperture wide open to produce beautiful background bokeh for portraits. Slow sync and rear-curtain sync are also supported.

Selectable flash distribution types

Selectable flash distribution types

Three selectable flash distribution types are provided: Standard (STD), GN priority (CENTER), and wide-angle priority (EVEN).

Light output optimised for focal length and image size

Light output optimised for focal length and image size

The flash illumination angle is automatically adjusted to match the focal length of the lens used over a 24-105mm range. Light distribution is also adjusted for optimum illumination with full-frame or APS-C format.

Fast recycle and dependable high-speed continuous flash

Fast recycle and dependable high-speed continuous flash

Advanced electronics and construction contribute to fast recycle times and allow continuous flash shooting for extended periods of time. A set of four batteries can provide power for more than 320 flashes with 2.0 second recycle time.

Innovative overheating prevention for longer shooting sessions

Innovative overheating prevention for longer shooting sessions

The use of heat resistant materials plus an optimised flash algorithm provides higher resistance to overheating that allows continuous shooting for longer periods of time. The HVL-F46RM uses the same algorithms as the flagship HVL-F60RM2, achieving approx. 1.7x greater overheating resistance than the HVL-F45RM so you can shoot without being interrupted by heat issues.
