Vello VCTTL-CR overview

  • 1Description

The FreeWave Captain Wireless TTL Receiver for Canon E-TTL or E-TTL II from Vello is part of a multi-purpose 2.4 GHz, 4-channel digital 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 or E-TTL II flash technology.

Coupled with a separately purchased FreeWave Captain Wireless TTL Transmitter, the system not only enables remote triggering but also camera control with auto exposure in a radius up to 300'. Solo shooters can add depth to portraits and group shots by attaching a receiver to an E-TTL or E-TTL II flash mounted on a stand for hands-free shooting. Using 2 shoe mount flashes, an additional receiver 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 an optional transmitter to wirelessly trigger your camera in single shot, continuous shot, bulb, and timer modes, with or without flash. 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 Vello FreeWave Captain Wireless TTL Receiver'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.

  • High Speed Sync function allows for a maximum sync speed of up to 1/8,000 second (in TTL mode)
  • Second Curtain Sync enables the user to create special effects and "after blur" images
  • Compatible Cameras
    Canon EOS: Digital Rebel (300D), XT (350D), XTi (400D), XSi (450D), T1i (500D), T2i (550D), T3 (1100D), T3i (600D), T4i (650D), T5 (1200D), T5i (700D), T6i (750D), T6s (760D), SL1 (100D) and XS (1000D), 60D, 70D & 80D

    PowerShot: G10, G11, G12, G15, G16, G1 X & G1 X Mark II, SX50 HS
    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 or E-TTL II 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
    AF-Illumination
    Control the AF illumination on the device itself, without having to go through your camera's menu

    Vello VCTTL-CR reviews

    FreeWave Captain Wireless TTL Receiver for Canon E-TTL or E-TTL II Cameras is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from works as advertised This gives you TTL capability with a remote flash. I use these triggers with Canon flashes and have had no problems. I have not tried with non-Canon flashes so cannot comment on that. Works as advertised, easy to set up, easy to use. Battery life seems good - I have used these triggers several times and am still using the original batteries that came with the triggers.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good price good product useful. I want to reduce the amount of equipment I lug around and FreeWave Captain Wireless E-TTL radio system has made that possible. I use on camera flashes for some location work. Not had enough time to test all the features but for portraits it works great.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from WORKS AS EXPECTED WORKS FINE, HOWEVER, IT WILL NOT TRIGGER ''MOVIE' MODE, BECAUSE IT LACKS THE 2 SEC DELAY BUILT INTO THE RECEIVER LIKE THE CANON PRODUCT DOES. ADDING THIS, AND MORE CHANNELS WOULD MAKE THIS 'THE' ONLY REMOTE PRODUCT YOU COULD EVER WANT

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vello FreeWave Works very well. This is my second slave unit that I bought for a second flash. I like the Vello system, have had no problems and no complaints so far. Thanks once again to B&H for their excellent service and prompt delivery.
