Vello FW-MS overview

  • 1Description

The FreeWave Mini-Stand Flash Trigger Set from Vello combines a hot shoe stand with a built-in 2.4 GHz radio receiver. This high 2.4 GHz frequency easily passes through objects giving you the ability to place lights behind them and around corners. The lightweight transmitter has a low profile that won't get in the way of any operational controls. The receiver-stand allows the flash to be positioned quickly on any flat surface. You can also use the 1/4"- 20 female thread to mount it on a tripod, light stand, or boom arm for maximum flexibility. For studio situations, the included 3.5mm sync cord and 1/4" phono adapter further expand the Mini-Stand's compatibility to include most studio monolights and power packs.

Taking just seconds to pair the transmitter with additional receivers, the Mini-Stand gives photographers who want to work with multiple lights the freedom of not being limited by the number or type of flash that can be used while shooting.

The FreeWave Mini-Stand Flash Trigger Set is compatible with most major manufacturers' shoe-mount flashes with manual power control. Pentax, Sony/Minolta and Sony Multi-Interface Shoe are not compatible.

Stand and Receiver as One
By having the stand and receiver built together, you can place the flash where you need it without additional equipment.
Wireless Hot Shoe or Studio Flash Trigger Set
Trigger a hot shoe flash (on camera type) or a studio strobe from up to 200' (60m) away.
Sleek Design
Low profile, sleek design provides a professional look.
Low Interference Signal
Low interference around and through obstructions via a robust 2.4 GHz signal.
Simple Pairing System
Get setup quickly with easy 2-button pairing between the transmitter and receiver.
Multiple Flash Triggering
Pair multiple receivers (available separately) as needed to trigger many flashes with a single transmitter.

    Vello FW-MS reviews

    FreeWave Mini-Stand Flash Trigger Set is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 19.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Vello FreeWave Mini-Stand Flash Trigger Set Good product. Setup was extremely simple and the FreeWave Mini-Stand performed reliably in both house and studio settings. I've not had a chance to use at an affair/wedding yet, but look forward to doing so. One of the small downsides I've found with this product is that there isn't a clear indication of when the battery is becoming low. I would recommend to everyone, professional or not.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vello FreeWave Mini-Stand Flash Trigger Set Vello FreeWave Mini-Stand Flash Trigger Set Surprisingly easy. All I did was open the box and added batteries like the startup sheet said; Then pared the 2 units (base to the transceiver) put it on my camera set the flash on the stand it worked. No hassle, No thinking just plain simple logic and I was using this unit like I had it for years. Fantastic for all beginners to pro for easy lighting.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easiest way to connect the remote flash After trying out so many remote for the stand alone flash trigger, this one is the best, simple and compact. B&H website and shipping are the best, all the way stick with B&H, happy days ahead.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome gadget to have in your bag! I bought this in the Deal Zone for $25. For something so inexpensive I was surprised at how well it worked. At first I was testing with canon body/flash and it worked perfectly with full control. Also I tried it with my Sony a7sII with the canon flash and it worked!!! But there is no control over the trigger setting. Overall, Great buy.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nikon Compatibility Problem This is a nice, quality accessory. Unfortunately, it did not work with my D5500 and Nikon SB-500 Speedlight flash. Even after spending over an hour with Nikon tech support, it was not possible to keep the flash in "manual" or "CMD" modes after removing it from the camera's hotshoe. My flash simply reverted to iTTL ("through the lens") mode, which will not work remotely with the trigger. Again, disappointing because the unit otherwise looks well made. This might work with a more advanced flash (such as the Nikon SB-910) that can be placed in a manual mode independent of the camera you are using.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent and inexpensive option as a speed light trigger Seems to work well from short distances, haven't tried from long distances yet. A simple, inexpensive alternative to purchasing a new receiver to match my elinchrom set - been waiting for this a while!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Compact flash trigger for minimalist I try to be a minimalist in my every day camera bag with that i like to carry a medium size speedlight. Regular radio triggers are too bulky so I didn't carry one until now. This Vello mini trigger set works as claimed. The stand doesn't take up any more room than my regular speedlight stand and the transmitter is about a square inch in size. The stand uses two AAA batteries and has an off/on switch but the transmitter doesn't. To be safe on preventing battery drainage I removed the watch type battery during non use.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from USING FreeWave mint stand withe my two canon 430 ex II. My canon T6i operates slave flashes from the internal flash and in TTL only. By using the two and the single on I purchased I can now operate my two Canon 430 flashes in manual and at full guide number 244(RMS average, 141 each at ISO 100), Each time I double the ISO the guide number increases by a factor of 1.4. I can still control the output of each flash and better remote control.
