Product Highlights
  • 2.4GHz Reduced Interference Frequency
  • Range Up to 320' (100 m)
  • Individual/Group Wireless Flash Trigger
  • Up to 3 Light Groups/7 Grp Combinations
  • Flash Sync Speed of Up to 1/320s
  • Dual-Function Shutter Release Button
  • LED Indicators

The FreeWave Fusion Wireless Flash Trigger & Remote Control from Vello is a versatile, reliable remote control kit that will trigger off-camera flash units and studio lights from up to 300 feet away. It can be used to configure up to three different light groups, which can be triggered individually or simultaneously, for a total of seven different combinations, using its multiple groups feature. Simultaneous triggering of multiple light groups requires additional FreeWave Fusion Receivers (available separately).

The FreeWave Fusion also provides the convenience of a wireless camera shutter release, ideal for photographing wildlife, and also for macro and close-up photos or long exposures, where the slightest camera movement can ruin a picture. Working on the 2.4GHz frequency gives you reduced radio interference and an extended range (up to 320' (100 m)) - you don't need to have line-of-sight alignment, either, as radio waves will pass through walls, windows and floors.

Note!
Since the FreeWave Fusion does not transmit TTL settings, use of a flash or light unit with full manual control is recommended. You will need to set the power output manually.

The FreeWave Fusion is compatible with most cameras, flash units and studio lights. However, for flash wake-up functionality and/or high shutter speeds, you will need full Canon TTL support via your camera, flash and FreeWave Fusion trigger.
This remote does not provide high-voltage sync protection, and is not recommended for use with flash units that have a trigger voltage of more than 6V.

2.4GHz Radio Frequency
Reduced interference and improved wireless signal quality.
Extended Range
Range up to 320' (100 m)
Multi-Purpose
Use as an individual or group wireless flash trigger, and/or as a shutter release remote trigger.
Multiple Groups
Configure up to three different light groups and up to seven different group combinations.
Flash Sync Speed of Up to 1/320s
Take advantage of sync speeds that match the rating of your camera all the way up to 1/320s (on compatible cameras only).
Flash Wake-Up
Simply depress the trigger button on the transmitter half-way to pull the flash out of "sleep-mode". Sleep mode allows the flash to power down in between shooting sessions to extend battery life. The wake-up function is only available when used as part of a complete Canon TTL system.

Note! If your flash does not have a wake-up function, you may be able to turn off sleep mode. Refer to your flash's manual for instructions.
Versatile
One receiver works with multiple camera and light models. Just swap out the connecting cables.
Dual-Function Shutter Release Button
Press halfway to focus; press fully to trigger shutter.
LED Indicators
Confirm pre-focus, shutter release, flash wake-up, and flash trigger in wireless mode.

    You can't go wrong with the Freewave Fusion flash triggers. I used them straight from the box for an outdoor photo session at ranges up to 150 feet - outdoors. I even tested them over a lake - no problem. They fired my Photogenic flashes every time.
    Exposure was consistent and they were a snap to use, even for different groups of flashes. With several channels, I'll never be interfered with and don't have to 'slave' a flash at weddings. Other people regularly trigger slaved flashes with their cameras, and it's a pain. They can even be used to remotely trigger your camera.
    I will happily recommend these to my friends.

    I would of up'ed it a star but I had problems doing a remote shutter and remote flash at the same time using a 2nd trigger. I do like how I can wake my canon speedlite. When using 2 triggers for two strobes it seems to be right on with no delay (within sync speed). For the most part if you are looking for something cheap to start you off these will work good. I plan to upgrade to pocket wizards when finances allow.

      Comments about Vello FreeWave Fusion Wireless Flash Trigger & Remote Control for Canon SLR:

      I used it with 430ex and 5dmarkII.
      It works perfectly
      I can attach my flash on my tripod using the adapter/stand originally coming with canon and create a off camera light source.

      In the box it comes with batteries, so it will work for you right out of the box

      Highly Recommended!!!!

            I don't know what the battery life will be as I have only used this device a handful of occasions. But it does at it says it does.

            Pros:
            -Red/Green LEDs to show positive status shared by both transmit and receive ends(firing/focusing)
            -Will transmit behind walls and many meters away.
            -Dual use is great. I've used it to fire an external flash, and I've used it to fire the camera from afar.

            Cons:
            -None found after ~6 hrs. total use.

            Comments about Vello FreeWave Fusion Wireless Flash Trigger & Remote Control for Canon SLR:

            This is my first flash trigger unit and it works great! It was easy to connect and worked right away. I wasn't sure if I was going to have to configure it or anything like that, but once I plugged in/connected the units and turned them on they worked immediately. I didn't have any misfires and I wandered around my living room to test out the range and it worked just fine. I bought this unit because it had good reviews and was compatible with my Mark II and I'm very pleased! Only con I can think of is one unit uses triple A batteries and the other uses a little circle cell battery. So hopefully they last a long time but when once they die I'll have to go buy new ones as most people don't have these kind of batteries laying around the house. But these type of batteries also keep the weight to a minimum compared to double As or 9 volt so no biggy!

                    I've used these triggers for a few indoor portrait shoots and a night landscape so far. Each shoot went very smooth due the ease of use. The flashes fired everytime so I do not have any compliants and they work very well as remote trigger for landscape use.

                      I have been using Pocket Wizard Plus II's for a while and they were starting to not fire consistently so I bought a set of Vello's to try them out. I shoot a lot of action sports so timing is crucial and there are no re-do's. I found the FreeWave Fusion Wireless Flash Trigger to work superbly with absolutely no mis-fires. Having to not deal with line-of-sight issues that my Plus II's have will let me experiment more with my captures. Plus, having them integrate with my Speedlites cuts out bulk, weight and wires from my set-up making it easier to move my equipment around. The units are plastic but they appear to be built well. Size is important to me and the FreeWave Fusion Wireless Flash Trigger set is tiny compared to my Plus II's, leaving me more room in my bag for other important items. The transmitter runs on one CR-2032 battery (3 years life) and the receiver used 2 AAA's (300 hours life). Results are still preliminary but so far I am very happy with my purchase and I plan on adding more receivers and transmitters for my other body and strobes.

                        I am using more off camera flashes. Since my setup is often used off site, the risk and pain of cables is something I like to avoid. These units were simply to set up, easy to use and worked every time. I use one transmitter and two receivers and while I do have to set the flashes manually, I can do test shots of each bank easily.

                        My only challenge with this unit was that the battery was dead on the transmitter. Fortunately I had a spare so easy fix.
