question

will this trigger a flash connected to quantum radio slave 4i?
Asked by: Anthony S.
No, the flash has built into it a FreeXwire radio system. It is a different system than the Radio slave 4i.If you have a Canon speedlight you will need a kit with a Freeewire receiver, Quantum QLINK for Canon with Freewire Receiver Kit B&H # QUFWCR (B&H Kit).

question

From what I am reading this flash will not work in conjunction with my other Canon 600 EX-RT flash units using only the Canon RF system. So I cannot control this flash from my Canon 5D MarkIII in a group with other Canon 600 EX-RT Speedlites....Is that a correct statement?? I don't really want to buy another trigger to be able to control all my lights.
Asked by: Rick
Yes, as far as I know, it cannot be combined and controlled with the 600 EX-RT flash system without an additional trigger(s).

Do these flashes fire without overheating and shutting down when connected to AC power? For example, every 3 seconds over 4 hours? I am making a 3D model image and require a light that will not turn itself off after 500 flashes.
Asked by: Carlie
Generally, these flashes would not over heat when fired rapidly, mainly because they lack a modeling lamp. However, since you require AC power, you would be better off with a flash head which has a fan built into it, such as the Interfit Honey Badger 320Ws Compact Flash Head B&H # INHB320. https://bhpho.to/2WWTknI

With the new EZpro firmware update, how to you access the HSS function?
Asked by: Mark
HSS – high speed sync. HSS is available in Manual, QTTL, and QTTLwR modes, for both the on-camera and remote TRIO. Off-camera flash When using a remote in HSS, there is no need to set any options. HSS will automatically be selected when your shutter speed is set above 250. On-camera flash Canon users – Select HSS option if you want to enable High Speed Sync on your camera. Nikon users – If you’ve selected high speed sync on the menu of your camera, high speed sync will automatically be selected on the TRIO when your shutter speed is set above 250.

question

I have the Turbo 3 battery packs. Are they compatible with this unit?
Asked by: Anonymous
The Qflash TRIO is compatible with the Quantum Turbo 3. You would need the CQ2 Power Cable (B&H # QUCQ2) to attach the battery to the TRIO.
