The FreeWave Fusion Receiver Only (For Canon) from Vello is a receiver for the versatile FreeWave Fusion kit that controls off-camera lights from up to 320 feet away. You can use this receiver to trigger additional groups of off-camera flashes and/or studio lights. You'll need the FreeWave Fusion Remote Control kit (available separately) to activate lights using this receiver. Alternatively, when using the FreeWave Fusion as a camera remote control, this extra receiver will allow you to trigger multiple cameras instantaneously.

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.

For FreeWave Fusion System
Extra Receiver for the FreeWave Fusion kit.
Versatile
Receiver works with multiple camera and light models. Just swap out the connecting camera release cables (available separately).
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. 1

      I am using this receiver with both 430EXII and 580EXII flashes in their MANUAL mode together with the companion Vello FreeWave Fusion Transmitter. The receiver works very well, however the range is more like about 100 feet (~30 meters) in open air, not the 100 meters claimed by Vello, hence my 4 star rating. The receiver appears well made. A major advantage is that it uses inexpensive AAA batteries. The availability of 3 seperate flash groups that can be independently or simultaneously fired is also a major advantage. The remote will synch flash at 1/200 second shutter speed with a Canon 5D Mark II camera.

      I use this alot works great and it easy to use the only problem is the plastic hotshoe needs to be metal. I have had to buy another due to stand getting bumped and fell over and hot shoe broke needs to be more sturdy.

        I'm running this with a Canon EOS 40D and two Photogenic Studio Max III strobes. Works every time. Took longer to unbox everything than it did to get it working. Nice compact size.

                  This item works great. I have used them for sometime now. Mostly indoors. They have worked flawless. This is not a pocket-wizard of course , but for the price, it is a great device. I use it mostly indoors though, the one time that I used it outdoors at the beach , there were at least a couple of shots where it did not fire. It is inconclusive though because I could not prove if it was the fault of this device itself or something else was the matter in those two shots. but again for the price. I dont know any other better.

                      I shoot portraits in a wide variety of situations. On the beach, in a cavernous furniture warehouse, on the edge of busy streets in front of store signage. With the FreeWave Fusion Receiver on each speedlight, I NEVER have a doubt that it is all systems go. I can place lights as creatively as I want knowing each flash will fire when I want them to. That's a great feeling. Well worth the cost and recycle time is fast and flawless.

                                  I bought these to sync multiple cameras and a flash. They work great when they work. I get about 70% perfect sync with strobes at 1/125 shutter speed. Which for the price, works for most of my purposes. I will probably spend a little more cash and try to get something with a bit higher success rate. They work great when using only one camera and multiple flashes. I just happen to be doing something on the non-traditional side of things.

                                    Just needed to trigger flashes in a non line of sight application and it worked great. Just got it and will see how it holds up under use. It feels cheaply made.

                                        Works great and is a nice lower cost option to remote flash/strobe releases. Have not tried it as a remote shutter release yet.

                                          I am using this receiver with both 430EXII and 580EXII flashes in their MANUAL mode together with the companion Vello FreeWave Fusion Transmitter. The receiver works very well, however the range is more like about 100 feet (~30 meters) in open air, not the 100 meters claimed by Vello, hence my 4 star rating. The receiver appears well made. A major advantage is that it uses inexpensive AAA batteries. The availability of 3 seperate flash groups that can be independently or simultaneously fired is also a major advantage. The remote will synch flash at 1/200 second shutter speed with a Canon 5D Mark II camera.
