Vello VCTTL-CRK overview

  • 1Description

For reliable flash triggering with full Canon E-TTL / E-TTL II support, this Vello FreeWave Captain Wireless TTL Triggering System Kit from B&H comes with a transmitter and two receivers, as well as flash cables and a shutter release cable, to greatly expand your off camera lighting capabilities with multiple speedlites.

  • Vello FreeWave Captain Wireless TTL Triggering System for Canon E-TTL SLRs

    The FreeWave Captain Wireless TTL Flash Trigger and Remote TTL Shutter Release System for Canon E-TTL SLRs from Vello is a multi-purpose 2.4 GHz, 4-channel digital E-TTL radio system that gives wireless freedom from a PC cord plus the convenience of accurate exposures through wireless communication with your camera's E-TTL flash technology. Imagine the near impossibility of running 300' lengths of PC cord to shoot outdoors, then imagine the wireless freedom of remote triggered, camera control with auto exposure in a radius up to 300'. Using 2 shoe mount E-TTL flashes and an assistant you'd have enough mobility to light groups, demos, shows, portraits and events on location, on-the-fly.

    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.

    In Brief
  • Full E-TTL functionality for Canon cameras that work with Canon E-TTL flashes
  • Adjustable TTL EV allows fine tuning of TTL settings to match your vision
  • 4 Separate channels with a digitally coded 2.4 GHz signal
  • Multiple shutter release triggering options
  • High Speed Sync function allows for a maximum sync speed of up to 1/8000 second (in TTL mode)
  • Second Curtain Sync enables the user to create special effects and "after blur" images
  • Compatible Cameras
    Canon EOS: Digital Rebel (300D), XT (350D), XTi (400D), XSi (450D), T1i (500D), T2i (550D), T3 (1100D), T3i (600D), T4i (650D), T5 (1200D), T5i (700D), T6i (750D), T6s (760D), T7i (800D), SL1 (100D) and XS (1000D), 60D, 70D, 77D & 80D

    PowerShot: G10, G11, G12, G15, G16, G1 X & G1 X Mark II, SX50 HS
    TTL EV Control
    The Vello FreeWave Captain's Wireless TTL Transmitter provides the user with the ability to manually adjust the TTL of an E-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

  • Vello FreeWave Captain Wireless TTL Receiver for Canon E-TTL or E-TTL II Cameras

    The FreeWave Captain Wireless TTL Receiver for Canon E-TTL or E-TTL II from Vello is part of a multi-purpose 2.4 GHz, 4-channel digital TTL radio system that gives wireless freedom from a PC cord plus the convenience of accurate exposures through wireless communication with your camera's E-TTL or E-TTL II flash technology.

    Coupled with a separately purchased FreeWave Captain Wireless TTL Transmitter, the system not only enables remote triggering but also camera control with auto exposure in a radius up to 300'. Solo shooters can add depth to portraits and group shots by attaching a receiver to an E-TTL or E-TTL II flash mounted on a stand for hands-free shooting. Using 2 shoe mount flashes, an additional receiver and an assistant you'd have enough mobility to light groups, demos, shows, portraits and events on location, on-the-fly. And the benefits aren't limited to flash photography either. You can also use the receiver with the included camera cord and handhold an optional transmitter to wirelessly trigger your camera in single shot, continuous shot, bulb, and timer modes, with or without flash.

Vello VCTTL-CRK reviews

FreeWave Captain Wireless TTL Triggering System Kit with Additional Receiver for Canon E-TTL / E-TTL II Cameras is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from REALLY easy 2 use. (Novice shooter) Canon 6D w/430EXII x 2 Since I am a novice, I wanted to buy all factory products. I was hesitant to buy this product since it's not factory Canon. My theory was that if it's all Canon brand, it should work easier for me. When I found out that the Canon ST-E3-RT was not compatible with the 430EXII E-TTL & that the Canon ST-E2 is not radio controlled,I bought this product (FreeWave Captain). I've been using it for 2 weeks now and I can say it's super easy to operate. E-TTL works and I can fire 2 430EX at the same time even if they are not in sight of the transmitter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice - very useful I plan on using this for some studio work, some portrait work, and some automobile photography. This is a nice affordable solution to wireless off camera flash that allows some creativity with lighting. I plan to mostly use it for flash triggering, but may use the remote shutter feature also. Works as advertised. Easy to set up, easy to use. Worked great with my 380EX and 430EX and both my 30D and Rebel SL1. The receiver / transmitter set comes with a nice carrying case. The extra receiver does not include a carrying case. All necessary cables are included and batteries are included. 4 channels may not enough if you are at an event with multiple photographers using wireless. But I will mostly be by myself, so 4 channels is sufficient.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great working units Full compatibility with CANON cameras and flashes. Good radio frequency range. Very reliable Complete range of accesories including carrying bag. Brings AA alkaline batteries, and can be used right out of the box, although rechargable batteries are recommended. Great for complicated flash placement that may not work with line-of-sight systems due to obstacles, since they use radio signals. Fairly easy to use, it's just like having your flash on the hotshoe.
Date published: 2016-03-09
Rated 3 out of 5 by from It doesn't work with a Canon Speedlite 580EX II I was disappointed when I tried to attach the receiver the my Canon Speedlite 580EX II. The flash will not lock onto the receiver and therefore, it doesn't connect to receive the signal to flash. I think there should be a note in the description or some indication there is a problem connecting with the Canon Speedlite 580EX II. It works fine with my smaller Speedlite 430EX, so I will keep it. I haven't tested it in the field yet.
Date published: 2018-05-10
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect gear and great price These units make working with strobes in your studio or outside of you studio so easy. The units are very easy to set up. They are also a very good value for the money. I highly recommend these and have enjoyed using them without any trouble at all.
Date published: 2018-02-07
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Remote Flash Made Easy Really happy with these. Plug in and work. Even the HSS and SCS worked with one touch on my 580 ex II and 430 ex II. If your looking for a cheaper solution that gives you enough control these should do the trick.
Date published: 2016-05-22
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works good Wish there was a better manual and tutorial aviable

Rated 2 out of 5 by from FreeWave by Velli Connects very easy, but does not work e-ttl
