Begin Wielding Light with the Bolt VD-410 Manual Flash


Delve into the fantastic world of on-camera lighting by picking up a Bolt VD-410 Manual Flash for your basic shooting kit. Offering simple manual operation and compatibility with a vast range of cameras, the VD-410 should have no problem finding a home in your bag. It enables users to start taking control of the scene by adding more light, thanks to a guide number of 124.7' at ISO 100, and the flash can even be set up off-camera due to an optical slave sensor with a 33' range. Additionally, this output can be controlled from 1/1 to 1/128 for setup exactly as needed, and can cover lenses 35mm and longer, as well as work with ultra-wide-angle 18mm optics when using the built-in diffuser.

For basic use, the VD-410’s locking metal foot slides into the hot shoe of many cameras and wireless triggers. Full tilt up to 90° and rotation of 180° left and 90° right will assist in taking your lighting to new dimensions by enabling full bounce capabilities. If you are looking to expand your setup with a bracket, the flash is very accommodating, with a PC sync terminal and two separate optical slave modes: instant sync and skip one pre-flash. And, for power, it runs on four easy-to-find AA batteries or an external battery pack, via an HV power port.
