Vello RFW-LR-R overview

  • 1Description

The FreeWave LR Wireless Flash Trigger Receiver from Vello is an additional receiver that will trigger off-camera flash units from up to 600' away. The 2.4 GHz frequency provides reduced radio interference and an extended range without the need for line-of-sight alignment as the radio waves will pass through some walls, windows, and floors. The receiver is compatible with most major manufacturers' shoe-mount flashes which offer manual power control. Pentax, Sony/Minolta, and Sony Multi-Interface Shoe flash units are not compatible.

Eight user-selectable channels allow you to control which flashes you want to fire, and LED indicators help you see the selected channel in difficult lighting.

An included 3.5 to 3.5mm sync cable connects the trigger to a studio flash. A 3.5mm to 1/4" mono plug adapter is also included for flashes with a 1/4" mono plug socket.
A hot shoe on the trigger allows for mounting the flash directly to the trigger.
Mount the trigger to any 1/4"-20 threaded stud or standard cold shoe.

    Vello RFW-LR-R reviews

    Vello FreeWave LR Receiver is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 16.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great and a great price. Attach sending unit to your camera hot shoe, attach a receiver unit to your remote flash and everything works as it should. You can attach a receiving unit to a speed light on a stand, or, there is a cord included so you can connect it to to a monolight flash head. Simple controls, just dial in the same channel on each unit and your done. Works great. I bought the set that has one transmitter and one receiver, then added another receiver. This is not TTL capable so be aware that you set your camera and flash strength manually. They sell a TTL unit but this will do fine for me. Very compact so you can probably fit these in your camera bag. 2 AA batteries per unit and each comes it a set.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vello is a good product I've been using a Vello transmitter & 2 receivers for a while with great success. About to open a studio. I have 2 bodies & 5 flash so I ordered 3 more receivers and another transmitter so I could set up all 5 flashes & have a transmitter on both bodies so I won't have to swap lenses or move lights. They work great! The strength of the signal is great, they fire from separate rooms, different floors, even through walls. Not TTL, but I prefer to shoot everything manual so not an issue for me. I set the 5 receivers on a different channel, 1 through 5, that way I can see what each light does separately. Once I have them as I like them, just switch the transmitter to "all channels" and they all fire for the shot.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Gear!! These freewave flash triggers work great!! I use 2 Pentax AF-540 FGZ speed lights with my Pentax K-5 and they do what they made for. I am really enjoying this product. Thay are well made, light weight, have Sync cables, pouch, lanyards, their range is HUGE!! BUT, I found that this item does not work with Flash Sync Speed over 1/160 sec. Maybe it is so just with Pentax. Anyway, for me Flash Sync Speed 1/160 is enough. I have got another instrument to get Flash Sync Speed more then 1/250 sec. For the more, this trigger system is the best way to save money. It is cheap and really good!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from amazing. I purchased the kit with the transmitter and riceaver. It worked so well i bought this for my second flash. I haven't checked how far the distance actually is but have done it in my house. They will work through walls and floors and thats good enough for me. Quality items, well built with easy set up. I find reasons to use my flashes more then i normally do now. For the price you will not be disappointed. I will rank these right up with pocket wizards.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love Vello! This is a great wireless trigger/receiver set for any kind of flash firing. I have two sets and two extra receivers. I use these with my speed light lighting package. Easy to use durable and reliable. It is rare for me to use my TTL cable, though I do on particular set ups where I am only using one speed light set to TTL into an umbrella and I want to control the output from the back of the camera. Otherwise I am using multiple speed lights in manual.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cello FreeWave LR Receiver. Wow wow wow! No really! Wow! This is no bull, I am a real reviewer and real deal working photographer, from Williamsburg Bk. I shoot ecommerce shoes, bags and belts and also, portraits. These things work and work great. I tried several brands and these are right up there with the industry standard: PW. I love and prefer these little dudes, hands down. A plus.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent quality I have only used it once so far- but compared to my cowboy triggers-- they are so much better. The build quality seems great. Packaged well too. I think they will last allot longer than my other ones. Paired with other Vello trigger

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Connection not reliable Works about 70% of the time indoors. I don't know if it's because there are >30 routers in my vicinity. Flipping the orientation helps restore the connection, but it's real annoying.
