Key Features

  • Wireless Triggering and Power Adjustment
  • Control up to 8 Flashes Simultaneously
  • Measures 3.9 x 2.3 x 1.1", Weighs 4 oz
The compact, lightweight FlashQ Q20II from LightPix Labs is a cost-efficient, manual-exposure lighting solution with advanced triggering and control features. The flash weighs just 4 oz and measures 3.9 x 2.3 a 1.1", making it easy to squeeze into tight places where larger units can't go. With a guide number of 65, the Q20II has manual power selection from 1/64 to full power, runs on two alkaline or rechargeable Ni-MH batteries, and will recycle to full power in 6 to 7 seconds depending on the batteries in use. One of the flash's clever features is the RF transmitter built into its removable foot and the receiver built into the body of the unit. By detaching the transmitter and mounting the flash head remotely on a light stand, you can adjust power and trigger it from the on-camera transmitter at distances up to 33'. In fact, the transmitter can control up to eight Q20IIs simultaneously. Convenience features include a flash head with a built-in filter holder and tilting capability in 0, 45, 60, 75, and 90-degree click stops. Finally, a pleasant surprise is the Q20II's LED light which can be used as a modeling light, or with its high CRI of 95, used as a 5600K video light.

Manual Flash Power Control
The Q20II allows you set the flash output from 1/64 (minimum output) to 1/1 (maximum output). These 7 steps of flash power ratios can be adjusted by two buttons.
Remote Triggering Power Level Adjustment
The Q20II functions like a typical on-camera flash while attached to the included shoe-mount FlashQ transmitter. Detaching the flash puts it into wireless mode allowing it to be used off-camera. Wireless triggering and power level adjustment can then be accomplished via the camera-mounted transmitter. The Q20II's FlashQ System can support up to 8 remote Q20II flashes simultaneously.
Power
The Q20II runs on two AA alkaline batteries or two rechargeable Ni-MH batteries. The transmitter can be conveniently charged via USB.
Rectangular Shape
The 3.9 x 2.3 x 1.1" flash is easy to squeeze into tight spaces.
LED Video / Modeling Light
The Q20II features an LED light with 7 output levels for use as a modeling light or with its CRI of 95, used as a video light. The light has a 60-minute run time with fresh batteries.
Tripod or Light Stand Mount
Built-in female 1/4"-20 threads allow the Q20II to be mounted on a tripod or light stand.
Tilting Head, Built-in Gel Filter Holder
The Q20II has a built-in gel filter and can tilt in 0, 45, 60, 75, and 90-degrees click stops.

Got this to try street flash photography and it works amazingly well. I use it on a Leica M11 and Rollei 35 Classic without issue.

Simple and very contact flash for those occasions you need a flash but do not want to carry a mass of additional equipment.

Amazing little flash. Works exactly as I expected. Using on a Leica M10 Monochrom for hand held off-camera fill.

Mixed Emotions

I picked up the flash a few weeks ago and have used it probably a dozen times now. At first, it seemed great. But over time things been going wrong. I noticed that when I leave batteries in the flash (when not in use) they drain quickly. I had full batteries in the flash, but when I went to use the flash the next day, the batteries were dead. The other issue I've run into is random firing. With the flash on my camera, every random bump of the flash unit will set it off. Yesterday, the flash went off because I my forehead touched it, which meant it didn't recharge fast enough for when I actually needed to use it. There's something strange going on between the remote trigger and the flash itself that causes it to randomly fire. If I hold the flash and wiggle the trigger while attached, it will just continue to fire.

Perfect for a Rangefinder or Small Camera

I'm surprised I don't hear about these much. They're absolutely amazing! Easy to carry, work great, can quickly take them off the camera for off camera flash via built in remote . . . what's not to love? I keep one in the front pocket of the small Billingham 72 bag for my rangefinder. I also occasionally attach it to a Godox Flash Grip and use a cheap shoot through umbrella through that grip for a quick and easy, one handed, off camera soft light.

Is This Compatible With Sigma Cameras?

Is This Compatible With Sigma Cameras?
Asked by: Todd
The simple answer is... it works great. I bought 2 flashes for my Sigma DP1 Merrill. The FlashQ seen here. And I also bought the Sigma EF-140 flash, which is built specifically for the Sigma DP cameras. I returned the Sigma flash and kept the FlashQ. The advantage of the Sigma flash... is that it calculates the exposure automatically, through the camera itself. This was great in the film camera days, when you didn't get immediate feedback on an LCD screen. But it's not really needed with digital cameras. On the Flash Q, there's no connection to the flash other than through the hot shoe. But it's very easy to calculate the exposure on the flash and then test it to make sure it is working right. And unlike the Sigma flash, you can do this on ANY camera that has a hot shoe (you can't use the Sigma flash on non-Sigma cameras). Then there is the added advantage that you can remove the flash body from the flash hot shoe trigger and easily do off-camera flash. And not have a clumsy flash (as big as the camera itself) tied to the top of the camera. You can also swivel the flash head to do bounce flash (the Sigma can't do that). And the FlashQ can also be used as a video light. This is a no-brainer. the FlashQ is actually the most versatile flash I've ever owned (I've been photographing since 1970). And it's incredibly reasonably priced, as well.

LightPix Labs FlashQ Q20II is a manual flash with a center pin connected to the camera hot shoe. Voightlander Bessa R has the same center contact on its hot shoe therefore you can use this flash unit on your camera and manually control the exposure.
