Sony FA-WRC1M overview

  • 1Description

Create a versatile and reliable off-camera flash setup by picking up the FA-WRC1M Wireless Radio Commander from Sony. Able to quickly and easily slide into the Multi Interface Shoe of your compatible Sony camera, this device provides effective remote control of up to 15 separately available FA-WRR1 Wireless Radio Receivers or radio-equipped RM-series flashes from up to 98.4' away thanks to a 2.4 GHz radio system. This configuration also permits operation without requiring line of sight with all the units involved. Additionally, it has access to 14 channels for avoiding interference with other radio triggering systems in the vicinity as well as up to 5 groups for precise control over your lights.

The major benefit of the Wireless Radio Commander is remote control over your flash's settings. This includes exposure compensation, flash power from 1/1 to 1/256, zoom, and more. Along with this, the radio system has full compatibility with Sony's TTL method and supports High-Speed Sync at up to 1/8000 second. Other flashes can be triggered in a manual mode and a PC sync terminal is available for connecting to various strobes and other lights. In addition to all of this, the Commander is equipped with a Multi Terminal for connection and controlling other cameras.

This Commander unit is dust and moisture resistant in order to hold up in less-than-ideal environments much like the cameras. Additionally, it runs on 2 AA batteries.

    Sony FA-WRC1M reviews

    FA-WRC1M Wireless Radio Commander is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad Customer Relations I bought this unit to use with my A7r ii. It has never worked. For five weeks now I have been waiting for Sony and their authorized repair center to figure it out. After calling Sony countless times I am only able to get through to agents who either don't know how to correct the problem or I am told that a National Office is working on it, be patient. The authorized in Connecticut is not much better. Moving to Sony was very expensive but I thought it would be worth it. I am having serious buyers remorse. I am now without my camera, the commander and two receivers. Beware! Bob S.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Solution for Sony off-camera flash At last! I can now explore endless possibilities with my speed lights. I had already made the commitment to four Sony speed lights - the F60M, F43M, and two F32m's; BUT I was stuck for getting the most out of them for off-camera use. It has to be said that I have gone down an expensive route, but I am happy with the results. I am already producing beautifully lit multi-flash portraits. They work well, and (touch wood) give me reliable, repeatable images. Now I can get out and fully explore the delights of off-camera flash, including outdoor images with high speed sync

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Product - Don't believe the low star comment. Hi have had canon wireless flash, Nikon and used Wireless pro photo B1 system. This system is the same as Canon. very easy to set up and I love the tally light at the back telling you what group your on. The only pet hate is you have to have them on TTL mode to manually set the flash from the commander. Dont believe the first comment with low stars he/she didnt firmware update the camera so it didn't work. If your a Photographer who needs a a7rii,a7sii or a7ii with wireless flash get it, own it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great with Sony a7rii (Read carefully) So at first I bought this to go with my sony a7rii, but the camera kept saying accessory is not supported.... After doing some research I realized that I needed to do a firmware update on my a7rii to 3.3. Afterwards the Commander and the FA-WRR1 Receiver worked great! Love how I can quickly change my option through the commander on multiple flashes.
