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.

    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
