With the Quantum Instruments CoPilot Wireless TTL Flash Controller for Canon you can control a studio full of flashes from up to 300' away from the hotshoe of your Canon DSLR. Not only will the CoPilot trigger them but can adjust the lighting ratios of up to 3 independent groups of flashes. Instead of poking away at an LCD screen Quantum gives you ergonomic, tactile dials that you can adjust without looking at them once you get used to their functions. The CoPilot is compatible with current Qflash TRIOs and T5dRs as well as older versions and any non-Quantum flash that can be triggered in Manual and Auto mode only by a FreeXwire wireless receiver. Last but not least, the CoPilot has a built-in IR autofocus assist for fast focus in low light.

        Comments about Quantum Instruments CoPilot Wireless TTL Flash Controller for Canon:

        I've been shooting Quantum since 1995, and have had trouble with it from the beginning. The freeXwire system is buggy at best and very inconsistent. I just purchased the CoPilot and it does not work with my T5DR. I called Quantum and they tried to tell me it's my camera, a brand new Canon 7D. Which is the same thing they said about my last 3 Canons. Quantum repair always blames the camera instead of their poorly engineered equipment. Read the blogs and you'll see that everyone is having the same set of problems with Quantum - works sometimes and is very unreliable. And Quantum repair always blames the user instead of fixing their own product. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY on Quantum products! Buy Canon or Nikon flash and use a Radio Popper or Pocket Wizard.

          Comments about Quantum Instruments CoPilot Wireless TTL Flash Controller for Canon:

          Finally! A remote controller for my Quantum flashes that lets me adjust the power manually. Worked perfectly out of the box. You will need to know which lights are Wireless R1 and Wireless R2 if you are using different outputs for more than one light. Another great Quantum Instruments product.

              Comments about Quantum Instruments CoPilot Wireless TTL Flash Controller for Canon:

              I have 2 Pilots ( one for each camera) and will now be selling one of them . I love this CoPilot. I can control either combination of Trios or 5D-r from Camera in seconds. Does it do everything a Pilot does? no, but it will control 3 zones in either Manual or QTTL fast and with its small size you don't even feel the extra weight.

                Comments about Quantum Instruments CoPilot Wireless TTL Flash Controller for Canon:

                The CoPilot does not have all the functions of the Pilot, but it has the essentials. I find it best used on a hand-held camera with multiple Trios on stands, in TTL mode. If, however, one needs to use the Quantum QLink units with Canon Speedlites, one still needs the Pilot to get the full function of the QLink-FreeXWire combination. The CoPilot will only trigger Canon units or other units, using the FreeXWire. So I see the CoPilot as a great addition rather than a replacement for Pilot. The CoPilot will control a lights in three groups. It sets up quickly and flawlessly.
