Vello FWIRC-N overview

  • 1Description

The Vello FWIRC-N FreeWave IR TTL Flash Commander for Nikon is the nexus of your wireless flash setup, enabling you to set and control all functions of your wireless slave flash units. Equipped with an infrared transmitter, it provides the freedom of remote IR triggering for multiple flashes, and full compatibility with Nikon's i-TTL metering and flash ratio systems for total wireless i-TTL control. It also offers high-speed sync with compatible Nikon i-TTL flashes, allowing you to use shutter speeds higher than your camera's top flash sync speed. Three groups and four independent channels deliver enhanced wireless operation, even in busy environments, and the Commander itself can be rotated 180° atop your camera for easy line-of-sight positioning. Your FreeWave Commander is powered by 2 (not included) AA batteries. For storage, your FreeWave comes with a drawstring pouch.

Wireless Infrared E-TTL Control
The Vello FWIRC-N FreeWave Commander makes full use of your flashes' built-in i-TTL technology. Its infrared transmitter offers wireless remote flash triggering for multiple flashes. In i-TTL mode, you'll be able to use the Commander to automatically set the appropriate flash level via your camera's i-TTL metering system data to calculate the correct power for all communicating i-TTL-compatible flashes.
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. With independent group control, you can configure each group to a different mode-set group A to i-TTL, group B to manual, and group C to Auto Aperture, for example.
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.
Autofocus Assist The FreeWave Commander incorporates an AF assist beam to help your camera meter or focus when shooting in low light.

    Vello FWIRC-N reviews

    FWIRC-N FreeWave IR TTL Flash Commander for Nikon is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nice price but not well made! For the first 30 photos this worked great giving me remote flash control for two Nikon speedlights. Then without warning it stopped triggering my flashes. I tried to reset it, change batteries, and adjusting the settings on the Free wave Ir commander. What I ended up with was a blank screen with what I thought was a 51 so I called Vello support and spoke to a tech who never heard of the 51 display. He said he would check into it and call me back. 5 days later he returned my call and said it was wasn't a 51 but an S1 and that is some kind of special setting. There was no mention of this on the web site nor did the tech say could it be an S1. To Make a long story short, I had returned the Vello unit to B&H and ordered the more expensive Nikon Su-800 which has worked perfectly for the last few weeks without incident.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good I have only used this a handful of times so far, but it has functioned as expected. Being able to swivel the head to point towards the flash is a great feature. Overall the build quality is good, but the power switch feels pretty flimsy. The i-TTL compatibility is great if you need a way to sync your flash for run-and-gun situations. I also like that since I don't need a wireless trigger attached to my flash, I can easily slip my flash in a pocket and pull it out only when I need it.
    Date published: 2016-02-17
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from It Works!! Like almost everything I've tried from Vello, it works. Works perfect in my garage even with the sensors not direct in line of sight. Haven't tried outdoors in bright light and probably won't. But I definitely need to experiment more!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Freewave IR Flash Review I was able to get the flash finally off camera using this system and it works flawlessly. I'm still learning the system and looking forward to adding more flashes to the system and possible a IR activated strobelight.
    Date published: 2016-02-28
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from What the other needed I have owned the Nikon su-800 for several years and, although it had worked well, I really missed the ⅓ stops for manual exposure. Also, with my sb800 flashes, there is no manual setting from ½ to full power. This remote allows for ⅓ adjustments all the way up to full power. Just what I was hoping for.
