Quantum Instruments T5D-R CoPilot overview

  • 1Description

B&H has put together this Qflash T5D-R CoPilot Wireless TTL Battery Kit for Canon to bring users the benefits of a powerful parabolic reflector flash backed with TTL functionality and large capacity battery power. The kit includes a Qflash T5dR flash head, CoPilot TTL Controller, FreeXwire 7Q Compact Receiver, and a Turbo 3 Rechargeable Battery.

Qflash T5D-R

The T5dR is an updated version of the T4D model. It has full wireless TTL dedication thanks to the controller and receiver included in this kit. The Qflash T5dR has exposure compensation in Auto and Manual Modes, a Flash Counter, visible and audible flash indicators, a modeling light, and an improved reflector locking ring. The Q Flash uses a parabolic reflector for a clean, even spread of light, which is removable for bare-bulb lighting. Flash control can be Automatic, TTL, Manual, or Stroboscopic. Automatic exposure control covers a nine stop range, adjustable in 1/3 stops, for a total of 25 automatic settings. Manual power can be adjusted from full to 1/64 power in 1/3 stop increments. Stroboscopic mode can be adjusted for flash power and number and frequency of bursts for special effects. Program allows storage of up to 8 favorite settings that can switched at a push of a button.

The LCD control panel shows minimum and maximum flash distance range for each auto setting. It has both an audible and visual indication of correct exposure, as well as an Under/Over indicator in the display as a guide to which way to adjust the unit. The audible is switchable, or you can use the included earphone in noise sensitive situations.

CoPilot TTL Controller

With the CoPilot Wireless TTL Flash Controller you can control a studio full of flashes from up to 300' away from the hotshoe of your DSLR. Not only will the CoPilot trigger them, but it can adjust the lighting ratios of up to 3 independent groups of flashes. Instead of poking away at an LCD screen Quantum gives you ergonomic, tactile dials that you can adjust without looking at them once you get used to their functions. The CoPilot is compatible with current Qflash TRIOs and T5dRs as well as older versions. Last but not least, the CoPilot has a built-in IR autofocus assist for fast focus in low light.

Turbo 3 Battery

The Turbo 3 is a high voltage battery that works with most shoe and handle-mount professional quality flash units and all Quantum Qflash, T-series, and Trio/Pilot portable flashes. The Turbo 3 has the capacity to provide 1050 full-power flashes for shoe-mount and 750 flashes for handle-mount flash units.

The battery pack has two outlets, so you can simultaneously power a digital camera and a flash or two flashes. Cables are secured to the battery with locking sockets so you don't have to worry about a cable dislodging while you're in the middle of a shoot. Compatible cables for Nikon, Canon and Qflash Trio are available.This NiMH battery is equipped with four, fuel-gauge, LED status indicators, which keep you aware of how much power you have left. Recycling times average one second and it takes about three hours to fully charge the unit with the included standard battery charger.Turbo 3 is Quantum's highest-capacity battery. It weighs only 32 oz and can be carried around easily with the included belt clip.
