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 Olympus 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
Olympus: Pen E-P1, E-P2; E-1, E-3, E10, E-20, E-30, E-400, E-410, E-420, E-510, E-520, E-550, E-600 & E600; SP-510UZ, SP-550UZ, SP-560UZ, SP-565UZ, SP--570UZ & SP-590UZ
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.

    Comments about hahnel Combi TF Remote Control & Flash Trigger for Olympus DSLRS:

    As a chain is only as good as its weakest link, so is a remote control device. I bought this item because of its duel capabilities as a remote trigger for either the shutter or the flash. I have used two seperate devices in the past so this seemed a very logical choice. The weak link is the cable that connects the camera and receiver when using item for remote shutter release. It simply doesn't do its job of connecting the two in a reliable manner. Where the three pronged plug attached to the camera it is loose, even when thumb screw is tightened and the connection is on and off at will. I remedied the problem by connecting a paper clasp to the cable to keep it steady and connected. I must say this is not a problem unique to Hahnel, I have had similar issues with this same cable from other manufacturers.

    Comments about hahnel Combi TF Remote Control & Flash Trigger for Olympus DSLRS:

    As a camera remote the TF works perfectly. No quirks whatsoever. The range is quite fine, I've tested it at 120 ft (measured) and it works every time. Also, firing through a double drywall at 60 ft seems not to be a problem.Having 4 dipswitches to change frequency is a plus. You can't do that on the fly but for workshops or polluted radio environment it definitely gives you the upper hand.Moreover, as opposed to many other photo gadgets available, this does NOT look cheap and appears to be finished well. The parts are assembled properly, there are no sharp unfinished bouts of plastic and so far there's no wiggle or any loose battery cover.There's a standby/actuation LED on the receiver and a confirmation red/green LED on the transmitter. Nice touch.Now for the quirks:- the trigger remote has no on-off button. Which means that if you pack tightly you're at risk of draining your battery because the trigger will accidentally fire in your bag. Only remedy is to remove the battery or slide some paper under the bottom contact while transporting it.- I accidentally hit the 4sec. timer button on the trigger while using it as a flash command. I had to change the frequency for the system to work again. - you have to stock on CR2032 and AAA batteries- the receiver coldshoe (the part that gets fixed into a support) is not lockable. It does not have a pin and it is made of plastic. If you are using flash/umbrella mounts (e.g. the ones that come with Strobie kits) I would advise for taping the receiver with gaffer tape, for added safety. Otherwise it might slide out. It does have a screw lock but it's plastic too and I wouldn't overtighten it. The alternative is to use the tripod screw mount. YMMV.- the receiver has two power/mode settings. The manual is fuzzy about it, on Olympus flashes the battery economy mode does not work. [...] If it's urgent, somewhat on a budget and you're careful with your gear, it might just do the trick. Don't expect professional-grade sturdiness though. Conclusion: I like it, but I'd like it even more if v.2.0 improves. Good work Hahnel.
