Quantum Instruments 860510 overview

  • 1Description

The Quantum FreeXwire FW8R Receiver can be used to receive a wireless radio flash trigger signal from an FW10w or FW9T transmitter connected to the camera. Or can be used to receive wireless TTL information when connected to the Qflash T5d and a Dw series QTTL adapter on the camera.

The FW8R receiver can also be used as a receiver hooked up to the camera with a Quantum Two-Step Motor Drive cord to allow for remote wireless triggering of the shutter release. With a 2-step cord you keep your camera's meter and focus function continuously on (as in pressing the shutter button half way).

8 Independent Channels
FreeXwire has eight unique Channel Codes. FreeXwire units set to one Channel cannot activate FreeXwires set to different Channels. You control the Channel Code to make FreeXwire units work together or independently, as required. There are 32 individual Channel/Zone settings at your disposal, and 256 possible lighting combinations.
4 Zone Control Plus Local
FreeXwire controls one Local Zone and four wireless Zones for flash or motor drive. You can activate any one Zone, or any combination of Zones 1,2,3,4 and Local. Switch your lighting instantly, remotely. Select and trigger flashes, cameras, or combinations of them, from your remote position.
Wireless Digital Camera TTL
A FreeXwire connected to a "Dw" series adapter transmits the camera's f/stop, ISO, and TTL information to any number of remote FreeXwire /Qflash combinations. A "local" Qflash will synchronize also.
Wireless Auto
Without a TTL adapter, a local Qflash & FreeWire can control exposures of any number of remote Qflash/FreeXwire combinations.
Two Special Motor Drive Features
Two-step cord keeps your camera meter and focus function continuously on (as in pressing the shutter button half way). The camera will be ready for instant shutter release. Or, select motor drive "delay" to command a camera to "wake up", focus and meter, then release the shutter.
Small Size
Compact and light, and antenna folds out of the way for compact storage.

    Quantum Instruments 860510 reviews

    FW8R FreeXwire Wireless Digital TTL Receiver is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reliable with long range I use the Freewire 90% of the time on location. The Freewire transmitter and receivers stay in my camera bag as standard equipment. I primarily use Alien Bees and Canon speedlites and very pleased with the long range I get to fire my lights. Lightweight, great battery life and I love the fact that the antenna retracts for easier storage. Comes with a pole strap with a snap, I'd rather have a strap with velco as I feel it would be faster to attach and the snap seems weak and not as secure but, I have never had it come undone.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid operation and triggering Setting this up is simple. I am using the FW8R with the Qlfash Pilot. Simply set the channel on the FW8R and match it on the Pilot and you're good to go. I'm triggering monolights with this and it fires every time. The unit comes with a strap for mounting to a light stand. The only thing I wish it had was a more standard tripod thread because I prefer to mount the triggers to super clamps but it is not a deal-breaker since they are so reliable and there is a solution for mounting included. Unit requires AAA batteries which are included.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from versatile receiver I've been using the FW8R to wirelessly trigger a monolight when I need a bit more power than my T5D-R provides and also using it to trigger the T5D-R for providing off camera flash. It is more dependable then using infrared, especially outside.
    Date published: 2008-08-24
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Product This is a great product that I can use now with my Canon 580/EX II speed lights while I save money to buy the Quantum Trio. Even after I purchase the Trios my speed lights will be functional because of this Receiver.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product!!! I use this FW8R to trigger my XL1600, works flawlessly all times!! Battery life is excellent. Antenna folds down. Stays in my camera bag at all times. Highly recommend this item!!!
