Overview

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 sec2. Intuitive operation via the camera interface2, quick shift bounce, and wireless radio communication add refined control and versatility.

Professional GN601 wireless radio flash

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.

Intelligent communication maximises image quality

Stable high-power GN601 output that satisfies professional needs
Because the HVL-F60RM2 is designed and manufactured by Sony, it can communicate with α camera bodies to deliver consistent GN60 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
With a compatible camera3, white balance is automatically adjusted so that the subject’s face is rendered with natural color. The HVL-F60RM2 works with a compatible camera3 face detection to provide ideal lighting for the main subject, even in groups.

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.

Light output optimised 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. 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 time4. The optional FA-EBA1 external flash battery adapter can be used to provide recycle times as fast as 0.6 seconds4.

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 longer flash shooting sessions.

Intelligent communication boosts speed

Stable high-speed continuous flash shooting

With a compatible camera the HVL-F60RM2 can continuously provide flash for up to 200 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 20 flashes per second
With the electronic shutter on a compatible camera3, up to approx. 20 flashes per second can be produced continuously for more than 1 second6. 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 camera3 for new expression
Used with a compatible camera3 body the HVL-F60RM2 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
When used with a compatible camera3, high-speed control sequencing in the camera uses pre-flash to control each individual flash7 during continuous bursts, even when tracking fast-moving subjects in scenes where the light changes dramatically.

Minimal flash trigger time lag
When using the HVL-F60RM2 in combination with a compatible camera3, time lag between pressing the shutter button and flash output is significantly reduced8 so that fleeting moments can be captured with confidence.

Intelligent communication enhances operability

Fast angle adjustment with Quick Shift Bounce
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 orientation. A revised mechanism is more compact and convenient.

Comprehensive control from compatible cameras
Flash compensation, ratio, and other parameters can be controlled directly from a compatible camera2. A camera custom key can be used to call up the flash display for easy adjustment while looking through the viewfinder.

User Interface controlling flash from a compatible camera

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 memorised 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.

Enhanced dust and moisture resistance
A dust and moisture resistant design9 contributes to high reliability in outdoor conditions. Shoe sealing achieves even greater dust and moisture resistance with certain a series bodies.

Versatile radio wireless communication

Stable wireless radio communication is ensured at distances up to 30 m/98.4 ft8. 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
Control up to 15 flash and/or receiver units in 5 groups10. 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.

Other features for enhanced expression

Auto AWB with colour filters
When one of the supplied colour 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.
