Get the most out of your Cruiser TTL 500 Monolight with this shoe-mounted Impact Cruiser Wireless Controller for Sony cameras. This wireless 2.4 GHz transmitter enables remote control and ADI / P-TTL communication from the camera to the light, including support for both 1st & 2nd curtain sync. It features an impressive range of 328' and has access to eight channels to limit interference. Also, the controller can set up three groups for added control and can remotely access flash output in 1/10-stop increments, turn on/off the sound alert, and set the modeling light power. These settings are easily seen and set via a backlit LCD and a micro-USB port is available for future firmware updates. For power, it accepts two easily-found AAA batteries and the shoe mount is locking for added security.

Designed specifically for the Cruiser monolight, this transmitter is compatible with Sony ADI / P-TTL to provide support for automatic metering and communication between the camera and a light, including support for both 1st & 2nd curtain sync.

Note: a7R III and a7S have to be set to Fill-Flash mode to be compatible. All other cameras have to be in Wireless (WL) flash mode.
Using a 2.4 GHz frequency this trigger can reach ranges of up to 328' and it has access to eight channels to limit interference.
Three light groups can be configured and users can perform exposure compensation for TTL mode or manual power control in manual mode. Manual offers control over output in precise 1/10-stop increments. Also, users can turn on/of the sound alert and set modeling light power from the controller.
A backlit LCD provides a clear, easy-to-understand view of the current settings.
The controller is powered by two AAA batteries.
A locking shoe mount ensures it is securely attached to the camera.
Future firmware updates can be installed via a micro-USB port.

    Impact ACDC-TXS reviews

    Cruiser Wireless Controller for Sony Cameras is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! So I have the Sony and the Canon unit. The Sony works well and offers TTL with Easy functionality. The screen is easy to see and the unit is simple enough to figure out without having to dive into the manual. Functions and changes are basically just a push of a button away. So far so good! Soooooo, in the description it has the Canon and Nikon only having HSS. I knew this but decided to just randomly test the Sony unit with HSS and to my surprise it actually worked! I was very surprised and super happy about that. I shoot mainly Canon and Sony so it has made this light an all arounder for me for both set ups now. One feature I mentioned in the other post is that it has an option to slightly adjust the power range in HSS which is nice because most lights only operate in full power when in HSS. I’m sure HSS for the Sony unit is just a firmware update.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy and Convenient to Use This review is for the Sony Controller. I posted much of this same text on the review for the Impact Cruiser AC/DC 500 w/sec flash unit, but I thought it would be helpful to add it here too. The wireless controller that goes into the camera’s hot shoe is very easy to use. I used it with both a Sony a9 and Sony a7 III camera. It locks down easily, and is small enough not to get in the way, but it’s big enough that all of the text was very readable to me on its backlit display. It’s easy to switch between Manual and TTL with the touch of a button, and I like that I can turn the recycle beep on and off as well as adjust the intensity of the modeling lamp (off, 50% and 100%), all from the remote, and without having to go into any submenus. I also like that I can purchase another controller for only about $100, so I’ll probably pick another one up because it’s important to me to have a backup. Adjusting the manual power as well as the TTL settings from the remote was very easy, which is the most important feature to me.� The specs say that the flash has a wireless range of 328 ft. I didn’t go that far away from the flash, but I did walk about 200 ft. from the unit and it still fired the flash every time (I’ve attached a photo of me demonstrating this). It would be nice to be able to be able to turn on and off the “cell” function from the controller so that the flash could fire in a situation when I have another flash on my camera that’s not compatible with the radio on the Impact Cruiser. I also like the fact that it takes 2 AAA batteries, which are easy to find in many places around the world (unlike less popular batteries that are found in some wireless transmitters). I didn’t test to see how long it would take for the batteries to be exhausted, but after about 8 hours of use and almost 1500 exposures, the transmitter was still functioning just fine. A battery level gauge on the transmitter would be helpful in this regard. I will measure the voltage of the batteries when the unit says they are exhausted so that I know when I should replace them (I have an inexpensive battery tester that comes in handy for this). I’ve only used alkaline batteries in the controller so far (not rechargeables).
