The Q Flash T5D-R TTL Flash by Quantum Instruments is an updated version of the T4D model. It has full wireless TTL dedication for new digital and film cameras, with the purchase of optional, camera-specific DW series QTTL modules and receivers. The Qflash T5D has Exposure compensation in Auto and Manual Modes, Under-Over F-stop exposure indicators in Auto, a Flash Counter, visible and audible flash indicators and signal, a modeling light, and an improved reflector locking ring.

It is a completely automated flash head with many advanced user-selectable operating modes; it is the perfect portable flash for any professional photographer.

Regular auto and manual flash are possible through its twin-blade sync socket. TTL flash exposures are possible when using the T5D with selected digital cameras. This unit is backward compatible with all Quantum TTL cords and adapters.

The Q Flash uses parabolic reflectors for clean, even light spread, and the reflectors are removable for bare-bulb lighting. Flash control is either Automatic, TTL (with optional adapters for TTL camera control), Manual, or Stroboscopic. Automatic exposure control covers a nine stop range, adjustable every 1/3 stop, for a total of 25 automatic settings. Manual power can be adjusted from full to 1/64 power in 1/3 stop increments; flash power can be dialed in precisely; Stroboscopic mode can be adjusted for flash power and number and frequency of bursts for special effects. Program allows storage of up to 8 favorite settings and switching between them at a push of a button.

The LCD control panel shows minimum & maximum flash distance range for each auto setting. It has both an audible and visual indication of correct exposure, displaying "OK" & 1 beep, or 3 beeps right away and an "UNDR" or "OVER" in the display, indicating which way to adjust the unit. The beep is switchable, or one may use the included earphone in situations where noise is distracting.

The Q Flash mounts on a camera bracket, tripod, or light stand and weighs no more than a conventional flash.

The Q Flash Model T5 can only be powered by the TURBO Series Batteries or Lumedyne Mega Cyclers with a Lumedyne battery, up to 150 Ws, full power, manual.

question

will this strobe work with Nikon TTL Pocket wizards if not what do you need for TTl with this strobe?
Asked by: Thomas W.
Unfortunately, the Pocket Wizard Mini and Flex units would not be compatible with TTL capability of this flash, but Quantum does make there own units to allow this. It would involve getting the FreeXwire 7Q Compact Wireless Digital TTL Receiver for the T5DR and the CoPilot Wireless TTL Flash Controller for Nikon, which are going to allow TTL control wirelessly. The following link would be with the T5DR, Turbo Blad Battery Pack and the two items mentioned above: <a href= http://bhpho.to/1AJTVdy target= _blank >http://bhpho.to/1AJTVdy</a>

question

is this flash compatible to pocket wizard plus 2? i use canon 5d mark 2 and 3, but not sure what are the good options to trigger the flash wirelessly.
Asked by: Anonymous
Hi...the flash has a household jack. You would need a household to pocketwizard cord to use. I use them and they seem to work fine

question

I bought this item from B&H last year. Looking back now, I should have bought the version that is set up to use TTL with Canon cameras. Is there an attachment/upgrade that I can get to use it with my Canons and get TTL functionality? Thank you!
Asked by: Thomas M.
I have a Nikon but you will need to get a freewire and a wireless control for you Canon. I use the Quantum Instrument Pilot but the new co-pilot has a lower profile. See attached. Make sure you get the ones for Canon. I could not tell which was which since the pics are so small.Good Luck,Chris F.

question

compatible with sony cameras?
Asked by: Anonymous
You can use it in manual with any camera that has a sync connection.. or with their Freewire cordless RF transmitters + recievers (various price points). For auto / TTL use, I'd look at the B+H page + see what's specifically listed. I was using it in manual, off-camera, with an Impact RF transmitter.
