Product Highlights
  • For Nikon Digital SLR Cameras
  • Wireless Remote Shutter Release
  • Wireless Remote Flash Trigger
  • Range up to 320' (100 m)
  • Control Shutter Release & Autofocusing
  • Single or Continuous Shooting/Bulb Mode
  • Operates on Radio Frequency (RF) System
  • Use with Portable or Studio Flash Units
  • Ideal for Studio and Location Shooting

Whether capturing images in the studio or out on location - the Combi TF Remote Control & Flash Trigger from hahnel adds flexibility and versatility to your shooting style. Shooting wirelessly allows you to do things other than standing behind the camera i.e. you can interact with a model, experiment with different shooting perspectives or duck out of sight of elusive wildlife - all this and more without missing a moment. This particular Combi TF is compatible with Nikon digital cameras.

The Combi TF operates via the reliable FSK 2.4 GHz frequency for a range up to 320' (100 m). A direct line of sight is not required for its operation; radio waves can pass through objects such as walls or windows. The shutter release functions will allow you to autofocus, utilize single image or continuous shooting, use long exposures (bulb mode), or set a four second timer delay. The flash triggering functionality gives you the freedom to manage your lighting both indoors or outdoors, and you can purchase additional receivers to fire multiple portable or studio lights simultaneously.

Note! When using the remote flash control, the flash must be in Manual mode. TTL signals are not transmitted. Additional receivers and cables require a separate purchase.

Compatibility
Nikon: D4, D800, D800E, D600, D7100, D5200, D5000, D700, D300, D300s, D200, D90, D80, D70s, D3, D3s, D3x, D2x, D2xs, D2H, D2Hs, D1, D1x & D1H
Remote Control
As a remote control, the Combi TF allows wireless control of the camera's shutter release, auto focus, continuous shooting, bulb mode and 4 second timer delay trigger.
Radio Frequency (RF) System
As the remote transmits on the reliable FSK 2.4 GHz radio frequency; a line of sight is not a requirement for operation. Furthermore, radio waves can pass through and around obstacles such as walls and floors, triggering the camera around corners. 1
Interchangeable Cables
With interchangeable cables available for all major brands, the Combi TF is the ideal remote control for a wide variety of DSLR cameras.
Remote Flash Trigger
The remote triggering of flash units is also possible with the Combi TF. Using multiple receivers, several portable flash units can be fired simultaneously, along with triggering studio lights.
Firing Studio Lights
When you mount the transmitter on your camera hot shoe, you can fire your studio lights by connecting the receiver via a hahnel Studio Light Cable to your particular strobe (not included). The light is then triggered by the shutter release on the camera.
Additional Receivers
Additional receivers (not included) enable you to trigger multiple flash units and studio lights simultaneously. A short 6" (150mm), Studio Light Cable (not included) attaches the Combi TF receiver to the studio light.

      I wasnt able to afford the more expensive Pocket Wizards for my setup which is a D700 and 2 SB-600's so I purchased a Combi TF Remote/Flash Trigger and an extra remote as beggars cant really be choosers. I realize that they are not TTL but I needed something in a hurry on my budget for some indoor group photos. I shot several test frames from the same room with both SB-600's, and then one each SB600 in 2 different rooms and they both fired without missing a beat. I shot in Manual at different shutter speeds from 1/60 to 1/400 (didnt try lower or higher than those shutter speeds)and also in Aperture Priority, Shutter Priority and Programmed Auto and they still fired. Just set the frequency, put your flash in Manual mode and set the commander mode of your camera to Manual in the commander mode. BAM! Also not sure how they would perform with studio strobes - yet...

      Very easy to set up if you have an idea what you are doing. Only dislike is the manual is a multi-language fold out piece of paper, I'd like to see a little more comprehensive manual for amateurs maybe with some tips and pointers for different scenarios. They are plastic, but slid on and off my camera and flashes without any problems with pins getting stuck or broke, and I am not too sure what the battery life will be like once i really put them to the test, but, Hey - The Irish cant be wrong, since the El Cheapo Yongnuo gear I tried from an Online Auction Service failed big time and had to be returned.

      Thanks B&H!

      I bought this to trigger a remote flash working with a Nikon D300s. I tried with a small remote flash gun and with a nikon unit and neither would trigger. The units were communicating but not triggering? Checked all the usually things like frequency, camera settings but without success. If it works it would be good value. [...]

        Comments about hahnel Combi TF Remote Control & Flash Trigger for Nikon DSLRs:

        It is a very effective high speed flash sync and the range is great. Its remote trigger is useful too when using it from a tripod. The trigger focuses on a half press and fires on full depression and that helps my work flow when I'm coordinating a group or composition.

        This device works beautifully, although the setup instructions supplied with it are difficult to understand. But once up and working, it functions flawlessly, and at a considerably lower cost than the alternatives.

        I wanted a remote for my D3 that would also allow use of an on-board sb900 while maintaining TTL capability. The price is right especially compared to other RF remotes.

            Comments about hahnel Combi TF Remote Control & Flash Trigger for Nikon DSLRs:

            I've been shooting with Hahnel Combi TF for enough time now to appreciate its quality.

            Initially, just handling the product shows the higher grade of material used in the bodies of the Hahnel transmitter and receiver as compared to the majority of lower-cost devices.

            Most importantly, the Combi has been 100% reliable to date. Not one failure to fire, which was certainly NOT my experience with the lower priced remote triggers...

            That old saying, "You get what you pay for" pertains in this instance. The Hahnel Combi is a little pricier than the rock-bottom triggers, but...IT WORKS! And being able to use a speedlight while keeping the trigger in the camera hot shoe is a major, major improvement over my previous trigger....

            I use it for night shots to trigger the camera. Also flowers when setting up a remote flash for fill light.
            The best thing about it is that it is so easy to use.
            One thing they could improve is the amount of pressure to push the transmitter button. It is very light.

              I looked into the PocketWizard set, and although they're great, it was just too expensive for an amateur photog like me. So I looked around and found this one Hahnel. It took me a few minutes to get it working (mainly because the batteries that came with one of the two units was dead), but once I figured it out, it worked like a charm.
              I've used both the remote function as well as the flash trigger function for some family portraits, and it works perfectly. So far I'm thrilled with my purchase — and all the money I saved.

                Comments about hahnel Combi TF Remote Control & Flash Trigger for Nikon DSLRs:

                I have needed a wireless remote flash trigger for some time now. I have been able to use the camera's count down timer so far but that is awkward and sometimes impossible.

                This product works and allows me to take shots faster and more accurately.

                The only limitation is that it does not support TTL exposure control which is available on units that cost four times more money.

                So far this units works well and saves time and effort.

                I use this for setting up remote cameras for photographing wildlife. It works great (but would be better if there was a way to trigger a loud sound to stop lions eating my camera ;-)) and I've achieved some great images using it. My only complaint is there is no way to turn the trigger device off other than to remove the battery, which is an inconvenience. Other than that I'd give it a 5* rating.

                        Use to trigger my Nikon D700's. Great for times when you don't want to be tethered to your camera, and need to avoid camera shake.

                        Super for shooting birds. Set the camera on a tripod, and establish your shot zone. When a bird enters the zone, pop the shutter without getting near the camera.

                          So far I've just used the Hahnel Remote Control for shooting hummingbirds. Before I had to get close and stay very still and that was very tiring. Now using the Hahnel Remote Control I am able to set my Nikon D700 on a tripod, set my SB900 flash to remote and using the built in flash as commander fire away from inside my house. I can set in an easy chair and shoot through the window. Not one misfire yet. Good product for the price.

                            I have only used it a few times now but every time so far it works good. No TTL! It's great for taking pictures without being attached to your flash all the time. It gives you flexibility while shooting at a good price!

                                  I bought this to trigger a remote flash working with a Nikon D300s. I tried with a small remote flash gun and with a nikon unit and neither would trigger. The units were communicating but not triggering? Checked all the usually things like frequency, camera settings but without success. If it works it would be good value. [...]

                                    I am using this trigger with older studio flashes because their trigger can be damaging to newer digital cameras. No need to replace perfectly good flash units.

                                    I'm using this to trigger Photogenic strobes or, to trigger my D700. The first unit, which was used, had a bad 10pin jumper so it only worked on the strobes, but this one is fine and seems to have a decent range. It's nice not to have to dance around a sync cord, and since one strobe will trigger the others via the photo slave I only need one Combi TF. BUT, I'm going to buy another to use as a remote camera trigger.
