The IR Commander is not compatible with the Canon EOS R-series cameras.

Wireless Infrared E-TTL Control

The Vello FWIRC-C FreeWave Commander makes full use of your flashes' built-in E-TTL technology. Its infrared transmitter offers wireless remote flash triggering for multiple flashes. In E-TTL mode, you'll be able to use the Commander to automatically set the appropriate flash level via your camera's E-TTL metering system data, calculating the correct power for all communicating E-TTL-compatible flashes.
E-TTL Flash Ratios
Achieve a professional level of creative control with up to three E-TTL groups by setting flash ratios at different power outputs. The Commander offers two E-TTL ratio modes, so you can adjust the power output ratios for two or three groups, as well as EV.

180° Rotation

The Commander pivots atop your camera to achieve easy infrared line-of-sight positioning with your flashes' IR sensors.

Three Flash Groups

Position your slave flash units individually or combine an unlimited number of flashes in up to three groups to function as main, fill, accent, and other lights.

Four Independent Channels

Enjoy enhanced wireless operation, even in busy environments. Choose from four channels to prevent your flashes from being triggered by other photographers working with similar systems nearby.

High-Speed Sync

Sync at shutter speeds as fast as 1/8000 second-High-Speed Sync mode allows your flash to exceed your camera's maximum sync speed. It's perfect for using large apertures, when freezing motion, or shooting in bright conditions.

Automatic Standby Mode

The Commander's automatic standby mode reduces power consumption and saves on battery life. An onscreen indicator makes it easy to distinguish between standby and off.

Internal Memory

The FreeWave Commander's internal memory remembers your current settings so you won't have to. When you turn the Commander on, all your previous settings will return as before.

Stroboscopic Mode

Create unique effects in which moving objects appear several times in the frame or capture extremely fast objects as the flash pulsates faster than your camera lens can open and close.

Modeling Light

The modeling light minimizes guesswork by approximating how the flash will illuminate your subject. The flash pulses rapidly to present the appearance of a continuous lighting source, simulating the direction of light. It's easy to use-just press your camera's Depth of Field Preview button.

Flash Exposure Bracketing

With flash exposure bracketing, you can take continuous pictures while automatically changing flash exposure compensation. It's great for shooting when lighting is changing rapidly and other situations in which it's difficult to determine the appropriate flash exposure.

Flash Value Lock

Use the flash value lock (FV Lock) feature to lock the flash output level that's optimal for specific elements of the scene. Lock the EV at a specific setting and override the automation to customize your exposure.

Will this work with Neo Rotolight?

Will this work with Neo Rotolight?
Asked by: William
According to Rotolight, the Neo 2 does not have IR triggering capabilities, so the Vello FWIRC-C FreeWave IR TTL Flash Commander for Canon will not work with it. Since the Neo 2 has a sync port, it can be connected to and triggered by multiple brands of [radio] transmitter/receiver sets using a PC sync to 3.5mm cable.

Is there any way to adapt this to the Sony A7R3 to be able to trigger the Nikon SB200 macro flashes?
Asked by: Jonathan
Not I know of. This device is desighed for Nikon. So I assume Sony has it's own version. I doubt Sony version will work for SB200, worth give it a try. Could be different frequency, but IR is IR after all. My Nikon version works great with SB200. I like it a lot better than the Nikon trigger (SU-800?).

Is this compatible with Nikon Z6 and Z7 bodies?
Asked by: Ashok
I just tried on my Z7 with two Nikon R1 ring flashes. It worked perfectly. Very annoyed with no way to trigger remote flash from Z7. Not sure I like the twist-tight onto hot-shoe. Nikon flash's flip-tight is much better.
