The VS-260SMI Mini On-Camera Flash for Sony Cameras from Bolt is a dedicated TTL flash for use with Sony cameras that feature the Sony Multi Interface Shoe. The VS-260 features a guide number of 72' at ISO 100 and an adjustable tilt head with five set positions: 0°, 45°, 60°, 75°, and 90°. The flash covers a 35mm range (in 35mm/full frame format) and also offers rear curtain synchronization for shooting at slower shutter speeds. It has an autofocus assist for low-light photography, and an automatic power-saving function that turns the flash off when it's inactive for three minutes. The VS-260 is powered by 2 easily found AA batteries. The flash duration is between 1/2000 and 1/40,000 second. Compatible with Sony TTL metering system. This model comes equipped with the Sony Multi Interface Shoe and is not directly compatible with the Sony/Minolta style Auto-lock Accessory shoe. Optional adapters are available for connecting this flash to older cameras.

    Bolt VS-260SMI reviews

    VS-260SMI Compact On-Camera Flash for Sony Cameras is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great flash for the A7 cameras I have an A7R and found Sony/Nissan flashes to pricy for my pocketbook. I ran across the Bolt and, based on the comments of others, I decided to get one. Right out of the box it has worked great. I'm not sure I have all the settings on my camera correct, but it does indeed flash at different powers and has done so with every shutter click. And I'm really glad I got the off-camera cord (from Vello) which gives me total control over angle, power, and dispersion. Great product.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice little flash for the price! I'm using this with my Sony A6000 so I wanted something small. and since I won't be using it too much I didn't want to spend a lot. It was on sale also. Seems to have a decent range. No controls on the back but the camera controls worked fine. It says something about wireless but I could not make if flash except when in the hotshoe.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from The one I got doesn't work with the a6000 or a7rII I bought this to have a small flash fill for my Sony bodies, a6000 and a7rII. Both cameras told me that is is an incompatible device, no TTL or power output controls at all, useless!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from true deception doesn't really work with the a7s I or II, it flashes but it does not calculate well the lighting with this camera plus it is made of terrible plastic. Mine broke on the 3rd use, best to invest a bit more money on a better flash.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Small and handy flash I am using the Bolt on a Sony a6000. It works fine. I opted for this flash because of the tilt-head, which allows for bounce off of ceilings. The size is nice. Be mindful that it is not too powerful. Very simple operation.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does not work with Sony A7R II My Sony A7R II detects the flash unit (flash icon displayed in viewfinder), the flash test and auto focus-assist light work, but camera will not trigger the flash. Contacting Sony and B&H.
