Vello VCTTL-C overview

  • 1Description

The FreeWave Captain Wireless TTL Flash Trigger and Remote TTL Shutter Release System for Canon E-TTL SLRs from Vello is a multi-purpose 2.4 GHz, 4-channel digital E-TTL radio system that gives wireless freedom from a PC cord plus the convenience of accurate exposures through wireless communication with your camera's E-TTL flash technology. Imagine the near impossibility of running 300' lengths of PC cord to shoot outdoors, then imagine the wireless freedom of remote triggered, camera control with auto exposure in a radius up to 300'. Using 2 shoe mount E-TTL flashes and an assistant you'd have enough mobility to light groups, demos, shows, portraits and events on location, on-the-fly.

And the benefits aren't limited to flash photography either. You can also use the receiver with the included camera cord and handhold the transmitter to wirelessly trigger your camera in single shot, continuous shot, bulb, and timer modes. This is of paramount importance in situations where a subject, such as wildlife, may be difficult to approach. Additionally, the wireless function of the device reduces the potential of camera shake when doing macro, close-up, and long exposure photography. The Captain system can also be combined with the non-TTL FreeWave Fusion LR system, and additional FreeWave Fusion LR receivers can be integrated into the Captain system.

The Vello FreeWave Wireless TTL Captain's High Speed Sync and Second Curtain Sync functions create easy to control lighting effects and other creative options such as stop-action shooting and a wide degree of background or ambient light control.

    TTL EV Control
    The Vello FreeWave Captain's Wireless TTL Transmitter provides the user with the ability to manually adjust the TTL of an E-TTL capable flash in 1/3 stops between -3 to +3
    High Speed Sync (HSS) Control
    Control the High Speed Sync (HSS) function from the device. This mode allows your camera to set the shutter speed faster than a flash would normally be able to fire in sync with. HSS mode instructs the flash to fire multiple short pulses of light to match the shutter's speed. Your camera/flash manual will indicate how you can access this mode
    Second Curtain Sync (SCS) Control
    Second Curtain Sync (SCS) mode fires a flash at the end of an exposure rather than at the beginning to create the illusion of motion in an image. This yields natural-looking blur trails behind the moving subject such as those seen in night shots of speeding cars
    Control the AF illumination on the device itself, without having to go through your camera's menu

    Vello VCTTL-C reviews

    FreeWave Captain Wireless TTL Triggering System for Canon E-TTL SLRs is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 17.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Strictly ttl; can't change flash power from unit If you only want to use the unit as an off camera flash in ttl mode, it's a great product....easier to use than theYoungnuo YN-622C-TX. The screen faces you as opposed to upward which is clearly where it should face. These are also about half the size which I liked. But you can only adjust flash exposure compensation; you cannot adjust the power of a flash (1/2, 1/4, 1/8 power) Etc.My 430 EX II flash also was very difficult to remove from the hotshoe of this unit. Unless you never intent to use your flash off camera in anything but TTL mode, avoid these and find something that allows you to control flash power directly from the unit in both TTL mode and manual mode.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great triggers Just bought these and used them for the first few times. I love the fact that were affordable and still do what I need. I had been looking at pocket wizards but for me this was a great option at a much more affordable price point. I use these to fire my speed lights for portrait setups both indoors and outside. Having four channels to choose from is plenty for me. Only downside is the receiver wasn't compatible with my after market flash. I haven't given up on the possibility but I may need a cable which I don't have. The set did include some cables but for my particular flash I think I will have to buy one that wasn't included. Overall very happy with them.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Exactly what I needed! Worked great and as described! Easy to set up with easy to understand instruction manual. They are a little bulkier than I expected though but as long as they work, I can overlook the bulkiness. I did have some trouble the second time a tried using them. I couldn't get them to fire. Messed around with them for awhile and was able to get them to work. Not sure what was wrong. Hope they prove to be reliable in the future.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not cheap, but a solid, high-quality product Works flawlessly with my Canon Speedlite 430EX II on a Rebel T5 box. Really solid feel to the construction and controls, which are very accessible. I like the fact that both the receiver and transmitter use standard AA batteries. (Another trigger I had used an unusual battery for one end. It's nice not to have to worry about stocking different batteries, especially since I prefer to use rechargeables, and don't want to run different chargers.) If it had cost less, I'd give it 6 stars.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as expected Works exactly as described. Using this system allow me much greater flexibility in flash photography as I can now located my flash unit nearly anywhere relative to the camera. I have a Canon camera and a Canon flash. It also works with Nikon equipment. Apparently it may not work with non-Canon flash on a Canon camera or similarly with Nikon. A bonus is that it will trigger the camera shutter release remotely just be reversing the transmitter / receiver!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great The Freewave Captain is easy to setup and use and has opened me up to the world of off camera flash. It also can be used to remotely trigger the shutter which is infinitely better than setting the timer and running to get in the shot.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yeah - it works!! I am not mechanically inclined. Channels and all that stuff. I own a different triggering system, but sometimes my camera would not trigger the flash at a photo shoot, which was embarrassing. I purchased this right before a shoot, got it, tried it out, and it worked so easily. I didn't have to worry about the flash not going off. I also like how it fits right on the bottom of the flash - no hanging wires.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great I use the set for receptions when I am photographing Weddings & it's great because it's easy to us and super portable!
