The Sony HVL-F42AM Digital Camera Flash provides Sony Alpha camera users with many features like: powerful illumination, adjustable bounce angles, wireless remote capability, and intelligent features like ADI metering, auto white balance, auto zoom and high-speed sync. It is perfect for formal portraits, weddings and special events, still-life photography, hobby shots and more.

Auto WB Adjustment
The Auto WB adjusts the white balance automatically, with color temperature information signaled to the Alpha camera before WB is adjusted.
High-Speed Sync
The HVL-F42AM flash unit provides High-Speed Synchronization (HSS) mode that enables flash sync with shutter speeds from 1/500 to 1/4000 of a second to catch fast-moving subjects.
ADI Flash Metering
ADI (Advanced Distance Integration) metering capability enables the HVL-F42AM to work more effectively with lenses equipped with distance encoders, combining TTL (through-the-lens) flash metering with guide number control calculated automatically according to the distance to the subject, the ambient light and the pre-flash reflectivity of the subject.
Can be triggered wirelessly (with TTL control) by the wireless operating mode available with Alpha series cameras.
