    Air 1 Commander for Sony Cameras with Multi-Interface Shoe is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 19.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product and a big step in flash control The Air 1 commander is a perfect match for my new camera and flash system. The Air 1 commander synchronized with my new Nissin i60a flash in less than 3 seconds. Once it connected wireless, its easy to control the amplititude of the flash. The Air 1 commander is light as a feather, and small, but easy to dial in flash control. As for the flash shoe, it seats in nicely, and has a push button locking mechanism, so Im not worried about it slipping off the camera at all. Very happy with this purchase, and although Im a rookie (because I only use 1 flash) the air 1 commander allows you to use multiple flashes for advanced lighting techniques.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not So Good... I have tried to use the Air 1 Commander with the matching Di700A flash for professional photography. It was the only option I was aware of for Sony A7 series cameras?? Appears to work fairly consistently indoors. Works ok outside but only in line of site. Place it behind a wall and forget it. I returned the first one, waited a several months to see if they worked out the bugs. The second unit performs exactly as the first. The operation manual is really bad.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good relatively low cost remote HHS Flash System Purchased the Di700A + Air 1 Flash & Controller, and later upon availability the Nissin Air R Receiver for Sony Flashes. The Air R receiver is mated to a Sony HVL-F60M flash. Air 1 controller can control both Nissin and Sony flashes independently in both normal and HSS. The system works as advertised and fires flashes reliably. My use has been mostly indoors and the control range though not as extended as some systems seem adequate. My one negative note is that the feature controls require holding down certain buttons for a number of seconds to change parameters instead of having dedicated switches which would be much preferred. The Air R receiver power button has to be held down for three seconds to shut it off, much too long in my opinion.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works perfectly in with Nissin Air R for CANON Speedlites I use the AIR 1 Commander on a Sony A7RII with a Nissin A60i, two Air R receivers for Canon Speedlites 420 EXII and a 580EXII and it works perfectly in a 3 flash multiflash combination. Easy to use and easy to link together. The radio command is reIiable at fairly big distance. Air Commander 1 does for Canon Speedlite flashes what the Metabones IV adapter does for Canon Lenses. It allows me to use my combination of Sony and Canon seamlessly.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent up to now Up to now I could not be more pleased but it is still early days. Very easy to set up and works as advertised. The only thing I could hope for is a receiver / adapter to mount my Sony flashgun on and then I would have control of two units.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nissin Air 1 and Air R I got the Nissin Air 1 and the firmware is old. (( I just received the Air R, had lots of issues getting it to work with my Sony Flashes. Remote power and mode did not work. HSS with Flash was difficult and not reliable. I try connecting the Air R to a Flashpoint RoveLight for HSS, does not work. Sent email to Nissin and no reply yet. Overall disappointed with the product and would not recommend.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I use Air 1Commender and two receivers for my work. I bought Nissin Air1 commander and two Nissin receivers for my macro and dental photography. The two Sony HVL-F20M flashes with Nissin receivers are mounted on a macro camera set up I build myself. The Air1 commander is mounted on my Sony a7R2. This set up works great for me in TTL and Manual modes. Just remember to set flash mode on camera to WL. It has been a long wait for me as a Sony user waiting for someone to create system like this. Nissin answered my prayers in a big way. It works every time and without hiccups. Thank you Nissin! I highly recommend Air1 commander and receivers. This product is great and is priced not to brake the bank. Air1 commender and two receivers for under $300 is a steal. If you are in off camera flash or flash macrophotography and you are a Sony user, this gear has your name on it. I highly recommend it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Air 1 Commander and Nissin Di700A I use the Nissin flashes with my Sony A6000 and A7RII. I have three DI700A flashes and they are intuitively and easily controlled by the Air 1 Commander. Easy to set up and get going even with high speed sync. It's so easy to gang the flashes if I need to overpower the sun or use as a complete portrait lighting set up with main, fill and hair light on location. Great features at a low cost.
