New LED video light

With the new built-in LED video light it has never been easier to switch between stills and movie shooting even in low-light conditions. LED enables checking and setting the light and shadow conditions before shooting still image or movie with live view function of EVF equipped camera. Maximum luminance of 400 lux/(0.5m), with illuminating distance of approximately 3-1/4 feet (1m) at ISO3200/F5.6.

Longer effective range

Longer effective range of over 30 ft. (10.5m).

"Quick Shift Bounce"

The innovative "Quick Shift Bounce" system allows the HVL-F43M to orbit 90 degrees left and right, allowing you to maintain horizontal light distribution even when shooting vertically. In addition to pivoting side-to-side, the flash unit can also tilt down 8 degrees or back 150 degrees, ensuring customers the lighting freedom they need to capture that perfect shot.

Versatile bounce angles

Versatile bounce angles: 90° up, 90° left. This allows the flash head to be rotated while maintaining the set bounce angle, so you can quickly switch between horizontal and vertical format without changing the light angle.

Built-In Bounce sheet

The built-in bounce sheet can be used even when shooting in a vertical position without changing the angle of reflected light.
