Add another flash to your wireless radio lighting kit with the FreeWave Aviator Wireless Flash Receiver from Vello. Dedicated to Canon's E-TTL II system and compatible with the separately available FreeWave Aviator Transceiver, users will have full functionality with modern automatic flash settings. Also, operation is reliable due to the Aviator's use of a 2.4 GHz radio frequency to provide a range of up to 300' without the need for line-of-sight.

The Aviator Receiver has access to 4 different channels to avoid interference with other users and the wireless technology set up in your venue. Users will also have access to 3 different groups with which to organize their flashes (A, B, C). The group controls of the Aviator allow for separate adjustment of the flashes in either TTL or manual modes as well as the ability to set group ratios in A:B or A:BC configurations. Users can also utilize high-speed sync for shutter speeds up to 1/8000 second.

Setting up the Aviator is simple users simply need to slide their flash into the top hot shoe, while the base has a locking cold shoe as well as a 1/4"-20 thread for mounting to a light stand or umbrella bracket. For ease of use, the receiver also has a standard 3.5mm port, a threaded PC sync port, and a mini-USB port for firmware updates. It runs on two AA batteries.

Note: Only flash units using E-TTL II are compatible, older flash units using E-TTL (original ver.) are not supported in TTL mode

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from FreeWave Aviator Wireless Flash Trigger Receiver for Canon 2 x FreeWave Aviator Wireless Flash Trigger Receiver for Canon Lanyard 3.5mm to 3.5mm Cable 3.5mm to 1/4 Mono-Plug Cable Hot Shoe Protector Adhesive-Backed Accessory Shoe Hot Shoe Locknut 2 x AA Batteries Limited 1-Year Warranty What I did with it; Lighting setup for a model session that was so simple and straightforward that instructions were not needed. Set the Group letter A,B,C , or Auto on the receiver. Then set the Channel on each unit to match either Auto, 1, 2, or 3. power on both units and your ready to go. The day of the shoot I used 2 flashes and the sun as a hair light from a window. I made 2 power adjustments on the Transceiver +/- section that corresponds to the flash it is assigned to and it worked perfect the first time. ------------------------------------------------ Macro Photography is one of my favorite things to so. I am extremely deep into photo stacking and use Zerene Photo Stacker. Well if any of you know the challenges to macro photography is that the higher the magnification the less light available and it becomes a challenge. With a flash on a free stand unit with a reflector on the opposite side of the macro subject for fill light it worked perfectly without a flaw. I was able to reduce the light volume to a very soft flash and gain some extraordinary macro shots that had such even lighting I was asked by a couple of friends why my macro pictures look so good? Conclusion; The FREEWAVE AVIATOR transceiver and receiver from Vello is slick. It is exactly a perfect lighting accessory for both amateur and professional photographer. This AVIATOR transceiver and receiver from Vello makes all the other remote wireless units I have used seem a bit complicated compared to the ease of the FreeWave Aviator in a number of times testing and using in real life situations. When I set up the Aviator Transceiver as the master it slid into my camera's hot shoe to receive TTL information and has a hot shoe on top for adding another flash to your camera to do direct frontal flash. The large LCD Screen on the unit makes it easy to read and operate. I did not need it to be hard wired to use but if you prefer to be wired the unit offers a standard 3.5mm sync port, while the transceiver adds a threaded PC sync port for more ease of use. The E-TTL / E-TTL II system is fully compatible with modern automatic modern flash units. Reliable 2.4 GHz radio frequency give a range of up to 300' without it being in direct sight
