The FreeWave Captain Wireless TTL Flash Trigger and Remote TTL Shutter Release System for Nikon i-TTL SLRs from Vello is a multi-purpose 2.4 GHz, 4-channel digital i-TTL radio system that gives wireless freedom from a PC cord plus the convenience of accurate exposures through wireless communication with your camera's i-TTL flash technology.

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 i-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

    AF-Illumination

    Control the AF illumination on the device itself, without having to go through your camera's menu

    Would this work with a Canon 6D and a QFlash T5d-R to allow manual remote control of the flash power settings?
    Asked by: Stephanie
    Although this can connect a 6D to a T5DR flash, all the control would need to be done on the flash directly.

    question

    I owned this product for two years and Im planning on switching to Sony cameras. Is there a way to use some or all of the with Sony?
    Asked by: Ira S.
    If you are purchasing a new Sony camera that uses the Multi-Interface hot shoe, the Vello FreeWave Captain Wireless TTL Triggering System for Canon E-TTL SLRs will fit into the camera's hot shoe. However, as the wireless triggers are designed for Canon E-TTL II automatic flash exposure, and not for Sony's TTL system, do note you will have to set the flash output manually; there will be no TLL automatic exposure when using this on a Sony camera.

    question

    Is the Freewave system compatible with the 5DMIV? I'd be using to remotely control a 430EX and 430 EX II.
    Asked by: Roger L.
    Sorry I dont own a canon flash, but if your camera is TTL it should work just fine. Just make sure you set your flashes on TTL. The remot is great and works well with my Nissin Flash. Hope this information is helpful Best regards Ron
