The Quantum Instruments FreeXwire FW89 Digital Transmitter/Receiver Set consists of the FW9T Transmitter and FW8R Receiver. The FW8R can be used to receive a wireless radio flash trigger signal from an FW10w or FW9T transmitter connected to the camera.
The FW8R receiver can also be used as a receiver hooked up to the camera with a Quantum Two-Step Motor Drive cord to allow for remote wireless triggering of the shutter release. With a 2-step cord you keep your camera's meter and focus function continuously on (as in pressing the shutter button half way).
Mount a FW9T transmitter and FW12 Hot Shoe Adapter to the camera and be totally wireless. Or, add a "D" or "Dw" series QTTL adapter to the camera and transmit your camera's f/stop, ISO, and TTL exposure information to the remote Qflash 5d.
Might require additional cables or accessories, depending on flash and/or camera used. Please check manufacturer's web site to see a complete FreeXwire component chart.
