  • Quantum Instruments Qflash Model T5D-R

    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.

    Links Qflash 5D series flashes to digital and film cameras (Canon, Nikon, Olympus, Hasselblad, Mamiya, and Contax) - wirelessly.
    QTTL Adapters with a FreeXWire FW9T Transmitter will send commands to one or more remote FreeXWire receivers connected to Qflashes.
    Full Dedication
    Connect a Qflash 5D to a camera using an optional Dw series QTTL adapter to make Qflash a fully dedicated flash that mimics the features of camera manufacturers' flashes.
    Manual Mode

Quantum Instruments T5dR reviews

Qflash Model T5D-R Flash Kit - with Turbo SC Battery & Charger is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Faulty Flash Head I am a wedding photographer in Canada and I purchased this flash in anticipation of indoor shots for the ceremony and large group shots. I also hoped to use it as a mini-studio for on-location portraits along with my Canon 580EX II. The flash fired a few times for me on the first day(both with the PC cord and my Pocket Wizards). After that I started to get a loud beep and a No Flash on the display. It would not fire despite changing settings and checking cords and power. I called Quantum and they said it was unusual but I have a faulty flash. I have no alternative but to send it back. I now have another one on the way and am hoping that it is, as they said, unusual.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome I recently purchased the entire Quantum package. T5D-R, Pilot, 2x2 battery, soft box, FW7Q, Bare bulb enhancer. I have to say it is amazing! It is light easy to move and works very well. Quantum's customer service is great as well. The learning curve might be a bit challenging but the kit comes with a helpful DVD. The T5D-R and the Pilot do so many things. I have used it for portrait sessions. seniors sessions and weddings. It is a great off camera flash unit and I can control everything from the camera.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding I own four of these and originally bought them as portable devices for indoor and outdoor location shoots. I have since decided that they are perfect in every way and use them in my studio as well! The light balance and options are amazing. These are a must for any photographer needing a more powerful strobe for outdoors! Super portable and extreme battery life from the Turbo SC.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Faulty Flash Head? After reading Snickerdoodle's review I seem to have encountered the faulty flash syndrome as well. Even on a full Quantum Turbo Battery as the indicator shows, I get a loud beep which is embarrassing during a wedding ceremony. I fired about 50 flashes and suddenly it occurred. Don't know if Quantum is aware of this problem but it cost too much to be malfunctioning on important jobs.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Somewhat of a disappointment Overall, I'd probably think twice before purchasing the Qflash again. My biggest problem with it is that when it is powered off and mounted on my Nikon D3s, it locks the camera up and the camera can't be used. I've confirmed this with Quantum and their only solution was to have me disable the flash using the menu system on the rear of the flash. This creates several situations for me that I'm uncomfortable with: 1) I now have to have the Qflash powered on ALL of the time for my Nikon D3s to function and 2) Even with the flash disabled in its own menu system, the max shutter speed I can shoot at is locked in at 1/250s unless I enable high-speed sync. I'm not particularly satisfied with either situation. Honestly, I've used a number of flash units and every one of them, when powered off, was invisible to the camera. I don't know how Quantum managed to screw this one up. To be fair, the other aspects of the flash are fine. I just wish that there had been a notice somewhere that it has problems on a Nikon D3s so I wouldn't have purchased it.
