Bolt has put together this TTL Macro Flash with Transceiver Set for Sony for photographers who require the ease of wireless triggering and TTL exposure control backed with options to expand the system.

Suitable for any type of work to illuminate up-close subjects, from flowers to food, utilizing multi-flash setups and flexible wireless communication, the package includes a Transceiver with stand and two VM-1010S Macro Flashes that attach to the included flash mounting ring. Each flash comes with flash stand, diffuser, shoe adapter, soft diffuser, and a nine-color gel filter set with pouch. A padded, zippered case is supplied for the package. Bolt also includes 52, 55, 58, 62, 67, 72, and 77mm lens adapters to accommodate most lenses.

Ideal for use as a small unit but even better used as one of up to eight flashes configured as a ring flash for small objects via the appropriate accessories, the VM-1010S TTL Macro Flash from Bolt has a guide number of 33' and a color temperature of 5500K. The head also has an LED modeling light with an accuracy rating of CRI90 that means that you can also use it for video. The VM-1010S has a built-in wireless receiver that operates on the 2.4 GHz wavelength and accepts signals to trigger it and vary the power at distances up to 328'. The VM-1010 has output that's variable from 1/128 to 1/1 in Manual Mode and ±3 stops in TTL. It runs on four separately-purchased AAA batteries.

Working within the Sony TTL system, the VM-1020S 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 Sony flash on it and shoot on-camera while controlling off-camera flashes. The VM-1020S Transceiver has three 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 VM-1020S Transceiver supports High-Speed Sync up to 1/8000 second for controlling bright backgrounds, shooting at wide apertures or creating an appealing background blur for creative effect. The VM-1010S runs on two easily-sourced AA batteries.

Macro Ring Flash

Especially suited to close-up shots of small objects like flowers, watches, insects, birds, clothing textures, dishes, and small photo and video accessories.
The flash can slide around the included ring for correct positioning. In fact, you can mount up to eight macro flashes and adjust their angles from -45 to 60 degrees.

High-Speed Sync Mode

The flashes are compatible with high-speed sync up to 1/8000 second to lower background brightness or to shoot at wide apertures for maximum bokeh.

Triggering and Control from 328' Away

The included Transceiver allows you to wirelessly trigger the flashes on-camera or off-camera at distances up to 328'. The Transceiver has 16 channels and three groups whose power and ratios between them can be adjusted.

Speedlight Compatibility

Besides triggering and controlling the Macro Ring Flash via its built-in receiver, the Transceiver can also be used with a Sony Speedlight. However, since the Sony flash does not have a built-in receiver, a Transceiver is needed for each Sony flash.

Sleep Mode

Sleep Mode powers the flash units down after inactivity to save battery power.

LED Focus Assist/Flash Test

Fire the Macro Flash or several of them at the same time with one button to verify that your flashes are working properly. You can also use the LEDs as modeling lights to preview the lighting from the VM-1010S flash units.

Includes Diffuser and Color Gels

Each flash is supplied with two diffusers (one soft and one standard) to soften the light in situations when harsh shadows are not desired. Nine color gels for each flash provide options to match existing lighting or experiment to create your unique look.
