External flash compatibility
While the F43AM was compatible with the Auto-lock accessory shoe on older A-mount cameras, the new Sony F43M external flash is now even more versatile. It’s equipped with a Multi Interface Shoe for 100% compatibility with Sony’s SLT-A99, SLT-A58, NEX-6, HDR-VG900, HDR-VG30, Cyber-shot HX50, RX1/RX1R and RX100 II models. The Sony external flash is also compatible with Auto-lock accessory cameras via the optional ADP-AMA adaptor.
Design of the Sony HVL F43M flash
The brand-new external flash has another bright trick to broaden its appeal. The Sony F43M flash also doubles as a powerful LED video light for keen videographers. Keep shooting Full HD video on your camera or camcorder when you’re short of natural light: backlit subjects, interviewees, parties and night-time scenes are bathed with natural, even illumination. With a rugged, reliable design that resists dust and moisture, the Sony HVL F43M handles everyday shooting as well as more challenging outdoor assignments.
Sony external flash function
Wireless control allows quick creation of sophisticated multi-flash effects. It’s easy to accurately control lighting ratios for up to three on- and off-camera flash units for beautifully balanced, pro-style results. Other smart functions include Auto White Balance adjustment with colour temperature information for consistently natural-looking white balance under any lighting conditions.
