          Compact GN46 flash supports the latest camera technology

          Compact GN46 flash supports the latest camera technology

          This compact high-output GN46 flash unit delivers levels of sophistication and camera communication that only Sony can offer, offering reliable flash at high continuous shooting speeds and sync at shutter speeds up to 1/400 sec. Outstanding durability, intuitive operation via the camera, flexible bounce angle adjustment, and wireless radio communication add refined control and versatility.

          Intelligent communication with the latest α bodies

          Intelligent communication with the latest α bodies

          α Lighting System has evolved in parallel with α 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 bodies for reliable and precise light control.  [1] Flash processor  [2] Multi Interface Shoe  [3] Image sensor  [4] Image processor

          Stable GN46 output for a wide range of lighting needs

          Stable GN46 output for a wide range of lighting needs

          Because the HVL-F46RM is designed by Sony, it can communicate with α camera bodies to deliver consistent GN46 light output that meets professional lighting needs. Focal lengths from 24mm (15mm with the wide panel) to 105mm are supported.

          Stable high-speed continuous flash shooting

          Stable high-speed continuous flash shooting

          With a compatible camera the HVL-F46RM can continuously provide flash for up to 60 frames in high-speed bursts at up to 10 fps. Missed frames dues to flash sync failure are avoided, providing stable continuous shooting support.

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

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

          Used with a compatible camera body the HVL-F46RM allows flash sync up to 1/400 sec. This makes it possible to deemphasise 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

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

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

          Minimal flash trigger time lag

          Minimal flash trigger time lag

          When using the HVL-F46RM in combination with a compatible camera, time lag between pressing the shutter button and flash output is significantly reduced*6 so that fleeting moments can be captured with confidence.

          Flash control linked to camera face detection

          Flash control linked to camera face detection

          With a compatible camera, white balance is automatically adjusted so that the subject’s face is rendered with natural colour. The HVL-F46RM works with a compatible camera face detection to provide ideal lighting for the main subject, even in groups.

          Auto white balance accuracy that only original equipment can achieve

          Auto white balance accuracy that only original equipment can achieve

          Thanks to in-house design, this advanced flash unit transfers colour temperature data to the camera where that data is used to precisely adjust white balance so that colours are rendered naturally in any situation.

          High-speed, slow, and rear-curtain sync

          High-speed, slow, and rear-curtain sync

          High-speed sync 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

          Selectable flash distribution types

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

          Light output optimised for focal length and image size

          Light output optimised for focal length and image size

          The flash illumination angle is automatically adjusted to match the focal length of the lens used over a 24-105mm range. Light distribution is also adjusted for optimum illumination with full-frame or APS-C format.

          Fast recycle and dependable high-speed continuous flash

          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 320 flashes with 2.0 second recycle time. 

          Innovative overheating prevention for longer shooting sessions

          Innovative overheating prevention for longer shooting sessions

          The use of heat resistant materials plus an optimised flash algorithm provides higher resistance to overheating that allows continuous shooting for longer periods of time. The HVL-F46RM uses the same algorithms as the flagship HVL-F60RM2, achieving approx. 1.7x greater overheating resistance than the HVL-F45RM so you can shoot without being interrupted by heat issues.

          Metal shoe foot with rugged side frame

          Metal shoe foot with rugged side frame

          A metal shoe foot with rugged side frame significantly increases the strength and durability of the Multi Interface Shoe and its electrical contacts.

          Enhanced dust and moisture resistance

          Enhanced dust and moisture resistance

          A dust and moisture resistant design contributes to high reliability in outdoor conditions. Shoe sealing achieves even greater dust and moisture resistance with certain a series bodies.

          Flexible bounce angle adjustment

          Flexible bounce angle adjustment

          This feature makes it possible to quickly angle the flash head 180 degrees to the left or right, 150 degrees up, or 8 degrees down, for easy bounce angle adjustment to match any subject and shooting environment.

          Comprehensive control from compatible cameras

          Comprehensive control from compatible cameras

          Flash compensation, ratio, and other parameters can be controlled directly from a compatible camera. A camera custom key can be used to call up the flash display for easy adjustment while looking through the viewfinder.

          Dot-matrix display and custom keys for efficient operation

          Dot-matrix display and custom keys for efficient operation

          The same display tab format as the camera makes operation easy and intuitive. The Quick Navi display provides status info plus direct access to important parameters, with assignable arrow key, control wheel, and custom key input.

          Improved rear-panel Quick Navi display

          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. While the previous HVL-F46RM flash only displayed the Wireless OFF and Memory Recall OFF icons when the Fn button was pressed, these parameters are normally visible on the HVL-F46RM display.

          Versatile radio wireless communication

          Versatile radio wireless communication

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

          Wireless radio control for up to 15 flash units

          Wireless radio control for up to 15 flash units

          Control up to 15 flash and/or receiver units in 5 groups. The HVL-F46RM can communicate with flash units that do not feature wireless radio communication via the optional FA-WRC1M commander and/or FA-WRR1 receiver.

          Multi/Micro USB for computer connection

          Multi/Micro USB for computer connection

          The HVL-F46RM has a Multi/Micro USB terminal that allows connection to a computer for software upgrades.

                  Stable GN46 output for a wide range of lighting needs

                  Stable GN46 output for a wide range of lighting needs

                  Because the HVL-F46RM is designed by Sony, it can communicate with α camera bodies to deliver consistent GN46 light output that meets professional lighting needs. Focal lengths from 24mm (15mm with the wide panel) to 105mm are supported.

                  Stable high-speed continuous flash shooting

                  Stable high-speed continuous flash shooting

                  With a compatible camera the HVL-F46RM can continuously provide flash for up to 60 frames in high-speed bursts at up to 10 fps. Missed frames dues to flash sync failure are avoided, providing stable continuous shooting support.

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

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

                  Used with a compatible camera body the HVL-F46RM allows flash sync up to 1/400 sec. This makes it possible to deemphasise 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

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

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

                  Minimal flash trigger time lag

                  Minimal flash trigger time lag

                  When using the HVL-F46RM in combination with a compatible camera, time lag between pressing the shutter button and flash output is significantly reduced*6 so that fleeting moments can be captured with confidence.

                  Flash control linked to camera face detection

                  Flash control linked to camera face detection

                  With a compatible camera, white balance is automatically adjusted so that the subject’s face is rendered with natural colour. The HVL-F46RM works with a compatible camera face detection to provide ideal lighting for the main subject, even in groups.

                  Auto white balance accuracy that only original equipment can achieve

                  Auto white balance accuracy that only original equipment can achieve

                  Thanks to in-house design, this advanced flash unit transfers colour temperature data to the camera where that data is used to precisely adjust white balance so that colours are rendered naturally in any situation.

                  High-speed, slow, and rear-curtain sync

                  High-speed, slow, and rear-curtain sync

                  High-speed sync 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

                  Selectable flash distribution types

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

                  Light output optimised for focal length and image size

                  Light output optimised for focal length and image size

                  The flash illumination angle is automatically adjusted to match the focal length of the lens used over a 24-105mm range. Light distribution is also adjusted for optimum illumination with full-frame or APS-C format.

                  Fast recycle and dependable high-speed continuous flash

                  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 320 flashes with 2.0 second recycle time. 

                  Innovative overheating prevention for longer shooting sessions

                  Innovative overheating prevention for longer shooting sessions

                  The use of heat resistant materials plus an optimised flash algorithm provides higher resistance to overheating that allows continuous shooting for longer periods of time. The HVL-F46RM uses the same algorithms as the flagship HVL-F60RM2, achieving approx. 1.7x greater overheating resistance than the HVL-F45RM so you can shoot without being interrupted by heat issues.
