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.

This transmitter will work on Sony Alpha still cameras that have the Multi-Interface Shoe like the A7 or A99 II. They will trigger a flash like the Sony HVL-F60M or HVL-F43M equipped with the Sony FA-WRR1 Wireless Radio Receiver B&H # SOFAWRR1. An image for the receiver is shown below.

Could I use the Sony HVL-F28RM (at $228) to trigger a couple of off-camera flashes, instead of this Commander (at $348)? What would the Commander give me that the Sony HVL-F28RM could not?
Asked by: Arthur
If they are sony rm flashes then yes. The commander allows you to control other Sony flashes individually also but dont think the 28 rm will let you do anything to them but flash them at full power.
