As the Bolt VM-210 Flexible Macro Light, B&H # BOVM210, is a manual light fixture that only uses the standard center pin for flash usage needs, it should be compatible for use with the Sony Alpha a7 III Mirrorless Digital Camera.

This will work on a Lumix camera that has a hot shoe. As long as the center pins connect, the camera will trigger this flash to fire. :)

How is the battery life?

How is the battery life?
Asked by: Neal
The battery life would depend on the type of AA batteries being used in the controller. We recommend using rechargeable AA batteries such as the Panasonic Eneloop Pro Rechargeable AA Ni-MH Batteries with Charger (2550mAh, Pack of Four), BH #PAKJ17KHCA4A for the longest life. https://bhpho.to/2u5Y5CP

Can it be operated off camera, or will it only operate off the camera hot shoe? (I typically have a radio controller already mounted to my hot shoe, so this product won't help me if it cannot be operated off camera.)
Asked by: Peter
Yes, you can use it off camera. It can be operated as a flash or as a constant light.
