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 Commander Reviews

After 11 seconds, Commander automatically disconnects

By linda
Rated 4 out of 5
Date: 2021-04-19

This is printed on the Sony website. Not sure I understand why it operates this way. Maybe the Commander disconnects to save battery usage? How long is the release time lag when the Wireless Bluetooth Remote Commander is used? The release time lag is approximately 0.05 seconds when the RMT-P1BT Commander is used with a supported camera. Note: If you don't operate the Remote Commander button for 11 seconds, the Remote Commander will automatically disconnect from the camera. If they're disconnected, you can press any button on the Remote Commander to reconnect it automatically. However, the operational time lag of the pressed button may be longer. This devices does seem a little expensive.

This thing is SO expensive, I hated letting go of $350 for this, but once I Snapped a few photos using my flashes off camera, it was worth all the while.

Solid product

Sony FA WRC1M

Took a few tries getting it to link with Sony flash HVL-F60RM, the menu system could be a little easier to understand. However after finally got Flash and WRC1M to link it works with no further issues. Units link automatically every time I turn them on without need to update any settings. Has performed well for me in Manual and TTL mode, fairly easy to switch between the two. Flash compensation /- can be easily adjusted on camera as well. Using A7r iv. See what flash options are available in your camera flash settings.

Perfect for Sony off-camera flash

By Darryl

I have used the commander with up to three Sony HVLF45RM flashes. the commander is easy to pair and you can assign and control each flash independently or in groups (TTL, Maunal, etc.) Adjusting power from the commander to each flash or group is fairly simple. There is a small delay to sync once all of the devices are powered on but after that its all good. A bit pricey but it works as described.

Expensive, but does what it’s meant to do

I use this (along with the FA-WRR1 receivers) on both the A99ii and RX10IV. It makes using off camera flashes incredibly simple. It brings the Sony flash system up to-date as the old Minolta designed optical flash triggering was reliant on line of sight between commander and receiver. It was also very hit or miss in bright sunlight. The new radio triggers eliminate all issues. The dropped star is for price, as there are competitive products which cost less.

Works, but typical Sony poor menu and pricey.

This works well, at least with the Sony HVL F45RM flashes. The menu is poorly thought out and for the price I would expect better with more features.

Perfect match

So far works great with Sony flash. Able to use off camera flash for more creative application.
