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 Nikon 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 Nikon 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.

      The wireless flash trigger was up and running in a just a few minutes. With one transmitter and two receivers I am able to trigger my 2 SB-700's off the camera. Since the FreeWave Fusion trigger is non-TTL the flash units must be used in manual mode; so in order to get a good exposure you will have to vary the flash power setting and perhaps tweak the flash zoom.

      Using the FreeWave Fusion as a remote shutter release was a breeze. I've tested both the flash trigger and remote functions out to about 150 feet without any failures.

      Overall, a good product for the price with the features I was looking for. Build quality seems OK. Only time will tell if they will stand up to a lot of use and handling.

      I am a pro. TSA took my pocketwizards from my luggage and they are lost forever. Pricey to replace I thought I would try a lower priced alternative. out of the box, flash on the hot shoe, worked ok. Unfortunately, most of my lights are not speed lights. there is not pc connector so i bought their adapter which has a PC connector. It trips my qflashes but not my norman b400s. With the qflashes, I had to reset the receiver after every shot. Trigger and receiver both froze with a green light. Additionally, if you are using as a camera trigger, you cannot trigger your lights as they flash same time you trigger the camera, before the shutter opens. Thet appeared to be well made. If you are using shoe mount flash without TTL, these may work well for you. These are way cheaper than pocketwizards but with reliability so important, the PWIIIs are not that much more expensive over cost of time and I would go there.

          Comments about Vello FreeWave Fusion Wireless Flash Trigger & Remote Control (for Most Nikon DSLRs):

          I bought this set to have more freedom with my Nikon Speedlights, thats just what it delivered. The IR features are nice with nikons speedlights, but it limits your speedlight placement to having line of sight to the command flash. This cuts that limitation out and allows freedom of light placement.

          I work with no studio and depend on my speedlights to do my dirty work because more often then not... I have no electrical outlet and enjoy incorporating nature into portraits. Beaches, trees and open fields are far better than backdrops. In fact, its what separates me from the rest of the local photographers locally.

              I hesitated because Pocket Wizard seems to be king of this product category. DO NOT hesitate. This is a quality product that sets up very easily and works very well. Easy to set channels or groups and fires speedlights for long distances. Very happy with these remotes.

                  Used with photoshop layers. There is not the need for studio lights.

                      This is a great product. You have not only remote for flash, but remote for the camera, so two functions in one. I just purchased Nikon Df which does not have a flash. With this, I can bring a flash with me, so it works in all circumstances wether for flash or for self portrait. It is very easy to set up, turn the power on and voila.

                        I bought two receivers and the transmitter. I have never done any wireless flash photography prior to this purchase but they are getting the job done pretty well! I think no more than 3 times have one of the receivers not triggered but I simply noticed after reviewing the image and re-shot with no problem.

                        I haven't put too much weight on the devices, I am using SB-600s but the transmitter between whatever base you are mounting to will definitely create a more flexing/flimsy flash.

                        I don't think you could ask for anything more at this price, would certainly recommend this product.

                          For the price,, these are great little items to have... reliable.. simple.. sturdy... I often do
                          outdoor portraits... and my very expensive nikon flash system, SU-800 etc... are all rendered completely useless... due to the fact you need to be within line of sight to the front of the flash.. or be indoors, in a room with lots of mirrors... which is very frustrating.. these work great..outside/inside... flash fires everytime, regardless of the flash location with regards to the camera location....

                          I take a lot of flash photography, before this trigger I used infrared, it was very difficult on exterior shots, as my remote flash not always received the flash from my internal flash, now everything is a lot easier

                          It's very easy to use and set up. The wireless remote is a little flimsy though. Be careful installing and uninstalling the lithium battery unto it. The throng that secures it can easily break.

                                    Use it for weddings, events needing light off camera
                                    It is the only remote trigger that works with the Bolt battery system ..it wakes up the flash alowing it to draw power from the Bolt pack, even Nikon iTTL will not work with the Bolt pack
