GN601 High-output flash supports the latest camera technology

This durable high-output GN601 flash unit delivers levels of sophistication and camera communication that only Sony can offer, achieving reliable flash at high continuous shooting speeds and sync at shutter speeds up to 1/400 sec.2 Intuitive operation via the camera interface2, quick shift bounce, and wireless radio communication add refined control and versatility.

Intelligent communication with the latest Alpha bodies

The Alpha Lighting System has evolved in parallel with Alpha camera bodies to give creators optimum illumination in a wide range of applications. A level of integration that is only possible with original Sony products achieves detailed communication with compatible camera bodies2 for reliable and precise light control.

Stable high-power output that satisfies professional needs

The HVL-F60RM2 is designed and manufactured by Sony, so it can communicate with Alpha cameras to deliver consistent GN601 light output at every flash. The HVL-F60RM2 supports focal lengths from 20mm (14mm with the wide panel) to 200mm.

Flash control linked to camera face detection2

The HVL-F60RM2 works with a compatible camera’s2 face detection to provide ideal lighting for the main subject, even in groups. In addition, white balance is automatically adjusted so that the subject’s face is rendered with natural color.

Auto white balance accuracy

Thanks to in-house design, this advanced flash unit transfers color temperature data to the camera where that data is used to precisely adjust white balance so that colors are rendered naturally in any situation, that only original equipment can achieve.

Light output optimized for focal length and image size

Flash illumination angle is automatically adjusted to match the focal length of the lens used over a 20 -200mm range (14mm w/ wide panel -200mm). Light distribution is also adjusted for optimum illumination with full-frame or APS-C format.

Fast recycle and dependable high-speed continuous flash

Advanced electronics and construction contribute to fast recycle times and allow continuous flash shooting for extended periods of time. A set of four batteries can provide power for more than 240 flashes with 1.7 second recycle time3. The optional FA-EBA1 external flash battery adapter can be used to provide recycle times as fast as 0.6 seconds3.

Innovative overheating prevention

The use of heat resistant materials plus an optimized flash algorithm provides higher resistance to overheating that allows longer flash shooting sessions.

Stable high-speed continuous flash shooting

The HVL-F60RM2 can continuously provide flash for up to 200 frames4 in high-speed bursts at up to 10 fps with a compatible camera2. Missed frames dues to flash sync failure are avoided, providing stable continuous shooting support. With the electronic shutter on a compatible camera2, up to approx. 20 flashes per second can be produced continuously for more than 1 second5. The FA-EBA1 external flash battery allows approx. 20 flashes per second for more than 10 seconds.

Up to 1/400 sec. shutter sync with a compatible for new expression2

Used with a compatible camera2 body the HVL-F60RM2 allows flash sync up to 1/400 sec. This makes it possible to deemphasize the background while using flash to illuminate the main subject, illuminate moving subjects against a bright background, and more.

Per-frame P-TTL flash control adapts to changing light

When used with a compatible camera2, high-speed control sequencing in the camera uses pre-flash to control each individual flash6 during continuous bursts, even when tracking fast-moving subjects in scenes where the light changes dramatically.

High-speed, slow, and rear-curtain sync

High-speed sync (HSS) works at all shutter speeds and can be used with the aperture wide open to produce beautiful background bokeh for portraits. Slow sync and rear-curtain sync are also supported.

Selectable flash distribution types

Three selectable flash distribution types are provided: Standard (STD), GN priority (CENTER), and wide-angle priority (EVEN).

Minimal flash trigger time lag7

When using the HVL-F60RM2 in combination with a compatible camera2, time lag between pressing the shutter button and flash output is significantly reduced7 so that fleeting moments can be captured with confidence.

Fast angle adjustment with Quick Shift Bounce

Bounced light can be more pleasing than harsh direct light. Quick Shift Bounce provides bounce angles for both horizontal and vertical camera orientation. Quickly angle the flash head 90 degrees to the left or right, 150 degrees up, or 8 degrees down, and rapidly switch between horizontal and vertical shooting. A revised mechanism is more compact and convenient.

Comprehensive control from compatible cameras2

A compatible camera2 can conveniently use its interface to directly control the HVL-F60RM2 settings, including flash compensation, ratio, and other parameters. A camera custom key can be used to call up the flash display for easy adjustment while looking through the viewfinder.

Fast, intuitive direct light level controls

Dedicated + and – LEVEL buttons allow direct, speedy light output and flash compensation control, and can also be used to control the same parameters on other wirelessly paired flash units for smooth, efficient workflow.

Efficient TTL light level memory

TTL flash level can be memorized and later recalled for manual adjustment. This can greatly reduce the time required to manually set up flash parameters in a wide range of situations.

Improved rear-panel Quick Navi display

Pressing the Fn button causes the selected flash mode and other parameters to appear on the display for easy setup in a variety of shooting situations.

Robust reliability

A metal shoe foot with rugged side frame significantly increases the strength and durability of the Multi Interface Shoe and its electrical contacts, while a dust and moisture resistant design8 contribute to high reliability in outdoor conditions. Shoe sealing achieves even greater dust and moisture resistance with certain a series cameras.

Versatile radio wireless communication

Stable wireless radio communication is ensured at distances up to 98.4 ft (30m )7. Reliable, error-free communication is achieved even around reflectors and obstacles. Slow sync, rear-curtain sync, and multi flash are supported2.

Wireless radio control for up to 15 flash units

Control up to 15 compatible flash and/or receiver units in 5 groups9. The HVL-F60RM2 can communicate with flash units that do not feature wireless radio communication via the optional FA-WRC1M commander and/or FA-WRR1 receiver.

Auto AWB with color filters

When one of the supplied color filters is attached to the flash unit, the camera’s white balance is automatically adjusted for a natural mix between flash and ambient light.

Flash control with bounce adaptor

When the supplied bounce adaptor is used the flash unit communicates with the camera to achieve optimum flash distribution for soft, even lighting. The wide panel enhances this effect.

Wired IN/OUT sync terminal

A single sync terminal provides in and out sync connections. IN can be used to receive trigger signals from a flash meter, while OUT can be used to trigger additional flash units.

Audible charge ready notification

An audible beep lets you know that the recharge cycle is complete after the flash has been triggered. This makes it easy to keep track of the ready status of an entire wireless radio lighting system.

Remote camera release

The remote release function makes it possible to trigger the flash and simultaneously release the camera shutter from a remote position, making it easy to simultaneously shoot the same subject from multiple camera angles.

Multi/Micro USB for computer connection

The HVL-F60RM2 has a Multi/Micro USB terminal that allows connection to a computer for software upgrades.
