Bolt TTL Macro Flash with Transceiver Set for Nikon

Bolt has put together this TTL Macro Flash with Transceiver Set for Nikon 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-1010 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-1010 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-1010 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 Nikon TTL system, the VM-1020 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 VM-1020 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-1020 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-1010 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 Nikon Speedlight. However, since the Nikon flash does not have a built-in receiver, a Transceiver is needed for each Nikon 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-1010 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.

Bolt VM-1020 TTL Transceiver for VM-1000 Macro Ring Flash System

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 flash exposure system, the Transceiver has 16 channels to prohibit interference from other shooters using radio systems. The Transceiver can control and trigger one or multiple VM-1010 Macro Flash units attached to the system's mounting ring, or off-camera using the 2.4 GHz 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.

Speedlight Compatibility

Besides triggering and controlling the Macro Ring Flash via its built-in receiver, the Transceiver can also be used with a VM-1020 Speedlight. However, since the VM-1020 flash does not have a compatible built-in receiver, a Transceiver is needed for each Nikon flash unit.

Mounting

Mount the Transceiver to your camera for control of the macro system via its TTL foot and mount a compatible strobe to the transceiver via its upper hot shoe.

LED Focus Assist/Flash Test

The LED focus assist/flash test is a great way to help your camera focus and confirm everything is working correctly with your flash setup. Fire all the flashes at the same time to verify your flashes are working properly. Alternatively, you can use the LEDs as modeling lights to preview the lighting from the VM-1010 flash. This gives you one-button ease to check your rig.

Triggering Studio Strobes

Using the transceiver's 2.5mm sync port, you can set up and use off-camera strobes by using one transceiver as trigger and another as a wireless receiver. Fire studio strobes with fewer cables in the way.

Sleep Mode

Sleep mode allows the transceiver to power down and save battery power after being idle. This will ensure you won't waste any juice, so you can keep shooting. Waking the system is as easy as the press of a button.

Bolt released a Canon version but the release may be premature. It does not sync below 1/200sec on my 5DM$ and my 6D does not recognize it as compatible. It looks like they may need more work on compatibility.

Is this come with ring adapter that fit to Tonika 100mm ATX i 100mm macro? I am also wondering if it is compatible with Canon 5D mark III.
Asked by: SHINWOO
Yes. Both the Tokina AT-X Pro 100mm f/2.8 Macro lens and the Tokina atx-i 100mm f/2.8 FF Macro lens use 55mm filter threads. As the Bolt TTL Macro Ring Flash with Transceiver Set for Canon includes a set of lens adapters: 52, 55, 58, 62, 67, 72, 77mm, it includes the 55mm lens adapter designed for use with both Tokina 100mm lenses. The Bolt TTL Macro Ring Flash with Transceiver Set for Canon is compatible for use with Canon cameras, which would include the Canon EOS 5D Mark III DSLR camera.
