Product Highlights
  • Wireless Digital TTL Capability

The Quantum FW9T Transmitter provides simple operation, increased range, and lower cost. You can match sets of FreeXwire units to work together on the same channel, or separate groups of FreeXwires can work independently on different channels, with up to 32 individual Channel/Zone settings at your disposal, and 256 possible lighting combinations. Compatible with an FW7Q, FW8R, or an upgraded FW10w Transceiver.

Mount a FW9T or FW10/10w transmitter and FW12 Hot Shoe Adapter to the camera and be totally wireless. Or, add a "D" or "Dw" series QTTL adapter to the camera and transmit your camera's f/stop, ISO, and TTL exposure information to the remote Qflash 5d.

Might require additional cables or accessories, depending on flash and/or camera used. Please consult the manufacturer's website for complete FreeXwire component chart.

8 Independent Channels
FreeXwire has eight unique Channel Codes. FreeXwire units set to one Channel cannot activate FreeXwires set to different Channels. You control the Channel Code to make FreeXwire units work together or independently, as required. There are 32 individual Channel/Zone settings at your disposal, and 256 possible lighting combinations.
4 Zone Control Plus Local
FreeXwire controls one Local Zone and four wireless Zones for flash or motor drive. You can activate any one Zone, or any combination of Zones 1,2,3,4 and Local. Switch your lighting instantly, remotely. Select and trigger flashes, cameras, or combinations of them, from your remote position.
Wireless Digital Camera TTL
A FreeXwire connected to a "Dw" series adapter transmits the camera's f/stop, ISO, and TTL information to any number of remote FreeXwire /Qflash combinations. A "local" Qflash will synchronize also.
Wireless Auto
Without a TTL adapter, a local Qflash & FreeWire can control exposures of any number of remote Qflash/FreeXwire combinations.
Convenient Connections
You can hot shoe sync with FreeXwire's optional Uni-Mod module FW-11 or FW-12, use twin blade sync cords, or numerous other cords. FreeWires use Quantum's motor drive cords for remote wireless shutter.

      Second One I bought

        Comments about Quantum Instruments FW9T FreeXwire Digital Transmitter:

        I use the FW9T on a Canon 5D MII to control a T5d-R Quantum light.

        The only bad thing I have to say is you have to be careful with the unit mounted to the camera. I broke my first one while mounted to the bottom of the camera. The sync cord connected to the camera caught my leg and bent the jack on the unit.

          Comments about Quantum Instruments FW9T FreeXwire Digital Transmitter:

          I would rate it 4 stars if it wasen't for one thing. In using the supplyed sync card I find that the connection to the Transmitter pops back a few times causing miss fire / miss shot. I am a Wedding photographer and in the last wedding I had to push in the sync connection about 6 or 7 times I shot 1030 times and only had the few miss-fires.
          Over all it is a goog product and I love the complete line of Quantum products.

              Comments about Quantum Instruments FW9T FreeXwire Digital Transmitter:

              I use my transmitter for wedding and fashion shoots. At weddings I have it connected to my shoe mount flash, I set the shoe mount to manual. I use the transmitter to fire my Quantum Flash Trio from the shoe mount.

              It came with Velcro which was convenient. I have it velcroed to my hot shoe flash. It does what it's supposed to. I haven't seen it misfire yet which is very important. And that's about it. It's made of plastic which keeps it light. It feels very sturdy. That's about all I can say. I recommend it.
