Bolt VM-1020 Overview

  • 1Description

Designed for use with the VM-1000 TTL Macro Ring Flash Set for Nikon, the VM-1020 TTL Transceiver for VM-1000 from Bolt allows you to trigger the flash, take advantage of TTL auto-exposure, as well as control the power level manually from 1/128 to 1/1 at distances up to 328'.

Working within Nikon's TTL and i-TTL system, the Transceiver has 16 channels to prohibit interference from other shooters using radio systems. The Transceiver can control and trigger one or multiple Ring Flash units attached to the system's mounting ring, or off-camera using the 2.4GHz wireless radio operating frequency. Since it has a dedicated hot shoe, you can mount a Nikon flash on it and shoot on-camera while controlling off-camera flashes. The Transceiver has 3 groups. Assigning ring flashes to separate groups allows you to light different parts of a large scene or work three individual setups from the camera. The Transceiver supports High-Speed Sync up to 1/8000 sec for controlling bright backgrounds, shooting at wide apertures, or creating an appealing background blur for creative effect. The VM-1020 runs on two easily-sourced AA batteries.

Triggering and Control from 328' Away
The Transceiver allows you to trigger the flash off-camera at distances up to 328'. The transceiver has 16 channels and 3 groups whose power and ratios between them can be adjusted.
Mount the Transceiver to your camera for control of the macro system via its TTL foot.
Speedlight Compatibility
Besides triggering and controlling the Macro Ring Flash via its built-in receiver, the Transceiver can also be used with a Nikon Speedlight. However, since the Nikon flash does not have a built-in receiver, a Transceiver is needed for each Nikon flash.
