Bolt VX-760 overview

  • 1Description

The VX-760C Wireless TTL Flash for Canon from Bolt is a dedicated flash for use with Canon cameras that support shoe mount flash. The VX-760C features a guide number of 164' at ISO 100 and an adjustable tilt head with six positions: -7 to 90°. The -7° downward tilt allows you to fully illuminate your subject when shooting close-up. You can also twist it to the left up to 90° and to the right up to 180°. It covers a 24-180mm range (in 35mm full frame format) and extends to 18-180mm with the diffuser panel in place. In auto mode the zoom range is stepless, it does not set at 24mm, 35mm, etc, but matches the exact focal length of the zoom lens for optimal lighting. The flash supports rear curtain synchronization for shooting at slower shutter speeds. The VX-760C is equipped with wireless (optical pulse) manual and full TTL master and slave functions. It can operate on 4 distinct channels and in up to 3 wireless groups.

The VX-760C has an autofocus assist for low-light photography and an automatic power-saving function that turns the flash off when it's inactive. It is powered by four AA batteries (not included), with a flash duration between 1/800 and 1/20,000 of a second. A convenient HV port allows you to connect the flash to an external power source, such as the Bolt Cyclone, for extended usage and faster recycling. The included stand allows you to set the flash up on a flat surface or to attach it to a tripod head, light stand, or clamp that has a standard 1/4"-20 mount.

This on-camera flash is fully compatible with Canon E-TTL / E-TTL II.
The VX-760C features full manual and full TTL wireless remote master and slave functions via wireless optical pulse transmission. Up to four channels (1, 2, 3 and 4) can be utilized so that master transmits only to designated slaves on the same channel. As slaves and masters, the VX-760C can be assigned to any one of three groups (A, B or C) and the mode and power set separately for each group.
Multi (stroboscopic) mode allows the flash to fire multiple times during one single exposure. This is useful to capture fast moving subjects or can provide multiple images of the subject moving through the frame. The VX-760C is also capable of being a wireless stroboscopic master, sending a stroboscopic signal to slave units.
The guide number for this flash is 164' (50 m) at 50mm and ISO 100.
The adjustable six-position flash head can be tilted up -7-90°, left 0-90° and right 0-180°. It has an automatic and manual 24-180mm zoom head.
As Canon cameras do not offer Flash Exposure Bracketing, the VX-760C is equipped with this feature to allow you to shoot three sequential images at varied flash power. FEB automatically adjusts flash compensation between -3 and +3, once above and once below the set flash exposure. This provides variations when determining the exact flash power is difficult. Red-eye Reduction and FE Lock are also supported by the VX-760C if your Canon camera has those functions.
The 2.0" rear backlit LCD Display allows you to easily make adjustments in low light and clearly see what your flash is set to for accurate readings.
With eight different manual power levels you can easily change from full to 1/128 power and fine tune your levels in increments of 1/3.
With a built-in autofocus-assist beam you can shoot in low-light conditions, using the beam to aid your camera's AF modes.
A PC sync terminal and included 12" cable allows you to easily shoot with the VX-760C off of the camera for increased versatility.
An HV port on the side of the flash allows you to connect the VX-760C to an external power source for extended use and for faster recycling time. The connection for the HV port is a Canon CZ-type.
This flash supports rear-curtain sync
A built-in reflector allows you to enhance the light coming from your flash and the diffuser panel, which extends the flash range to wide-angle 18mm, also softens the light for more flattering shadows and images.
Lock mode prevents inadvertent operation of the flash unit and overheating protection mode offers warnings when the flash is operating continuously with a chance of overheating and will temporarily disable the flash if temperatures are too high.
The automatic power-saving function turns the flash off to conserve power, allowing you to shoot longer

    Bolt VX-760 reviews

    VX-760C Wireless TTL Flash for Canon Cameras is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 21.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very Disappointed I happily received my new flash and I was looking forward to using it. I got it out of the box and set it up the way I intended to use it in the coming week for a photo shoot at a birthday. Once I tested it, I put everything away and waited a few days until the party. Once at the party I set up my equipment in the preplanned configuration and started taking photos. After about 10 photos, the flash stopped working. I have tried resetting it, and any other adjustment I could find. Nothing worked. The control panel of the flash would light up when it received a signal to fire, but the flash did not fire. So frustrating and disappointing at the same time. It looks like I will be on my way to purchase the Canon Speedlite 600EX II-RT.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bolt VX-760C Wireless TTL Flash The first thing I noticed with the Bolt VX-760C Wireless TTL Flash how much less it weighed compared to my Canon flash unit. It has much of the features of my Canon flash and it appears to be well built. The metal hot shoe base is solid and just like the Canon flash. It has flash exposure bracketing and I like the manual zoom option too. It has a automatic power-saving and the price it's hard to beat. Simple to use right out of the box and offers both new and pro a speed light that will work for years to come. Nicole Chason - Photographer

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good for price This works well with my Canon 5D. The flash takes a little longer to recycle than I would like, and the flash doesn't have quite the range of movement that I would prefer. But for the price it's a great product!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice alternative to the Canon 580EX I just got this as a second flash. So far, I'm very impressed with the quality and power. It also works as a slave to my Canon transmitter :) I already have a Canon 580EX and would definitely recommend this instead.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great My 580EXII died and cost of repair was estimated at right around $, not including shipping and insurance. So when I found this Bolt I decided to give it a try. On two assignments so far it's performed flawlessly. The controls are easy to figure out, and the audible report lets me know it's ready to go without me having to take my eye from out of the eyepiece. The only thing missing is high-speed sync, which is OK in my case because I still have a 580EXII working. So far, it seems to be working well for the outdoor photography/sports I do.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent for price It's a decent flash for its price. The battery consumption is a little high and it takes time to refresh. It's not as fast as I would have liked it to be and freezes here and there. Has to be powered on and off when it overheats. Gets the job done but not ideal for fast flash photography for quick snapping

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well I purchased this to use as a slave flash, with the Canon wireless system. Using the 580EX as a master, it is working well in this role. It does lack high speed sync, which is not a problem when working inside, but can be an issue outdoors.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Full featured at half the cost I was looking for a flash for my Canon 4ti. While my heard was set on the top of the line Canon flash, the price was prohibitive. This flash has all key features (can even serve as a master or slave) at half the price. A good deal!
