Vello FTA-TTL-C overview

  • 1Description

Create beautiful lighting and take advantage of your shoe-mounted flash's true potential with the FreeWave Aviator Wireless Flash Trigger Transceiver from Vello. Dedicated to Canon's E-TTL II system, users will have full functionality with modern automatic flash settings. This transceiver is also able to function as either a master transmitter/trigger or a slave receiver for maximum versatility. Operation is reliable as well 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 Transceiver has access to 16 different channels, ensuring limited 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.

Setting up the Aviator is simple as it easily slides into your camera's hot shoe to receive TTL information and also offers top hot shoe for adding another flash to the mix. For ease of use, all information is accessible via a backlit LCD screen and it has a standard 3.5mm sync port. Also, it has high-speed sync 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

    Vello FTA-TTL-C reviews

    FreeWave Aviator Wireless Flash Trigger Transceiver for Select Canon is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from FreeWave Aviator Wireless Flash Trigger Transceiver-Canon FreeWave Aviator Set by Vello By Steve Baslow from Portland, Or About Me Semi-pro Photographer Vello FreeWave Aviator Wireless Flash Trigger Transceiver & Two Receiver Kit for Canon review by Steve Baslow In the Box; Kit Items FreeWave Aviator Wireless Flash Trigger Transceiver for Canon Lanyard 3.5mm to 3.5mm Cable 3.5mm to 1/4 Mono-Plug Cable Hot Shoe Protector 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

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works perfectly with all my old and new flashes This product and its receivers works flawlessly with my Canon 5D Mk III and all my flashes, which range from 25-plus-years old Sunpaks to my Canon 600ES-RT. The receivers screw onto� a standard light stand umbrella holder and the flashes slip into the receivers hot shoes, making for easily transportable lighting setups for studio and remote photo sessions. I could not be happier with these Vello units.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from 5D mark IV is not supported Hello,� I was hoping to get a cheap solution for TTL remote triggering but after �trying to get it to work with the 5D mark IV I realized that the camera always thinks there's a flash attached even when the transceiver is turned off. �this results in wrong exposure setting and you can't bracket �. After calling Vello they acknowledged the problem and I got this reply: � Hi Stefano, � We've looked further into the issue you've experienced with your 5D Mark IV and FreeWave Aviator. It looks like Canon has made software changed in the newer camera system which is not playing well with the Aviator. � Unfortunately we do not have a solution for this, and recommend that you send it back to B&H for a refund. � Best, � Danny M.
