Intelligent communication with the latest a 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

 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

during continuous bursts, even when tracking fast-moving subjects in scenes where the light changes dramatically.

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.

High-speed, slow, and rear-curtain sync

High-speed sync works at all shutter speeds

  1. The mechanical shutter speed depends on the camera's spec.
, 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).

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

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

  1. Ni-MH batteries. Sony tests.

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. 1.7

x greater overheating resistance than the HVL-F45RM so you can shoot without being interrupted by heat issues.

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

A dust and moisture resistant design

  1. Not guaranteed to be 100% dust and moisture proof. Dust and moisture resistance will also vary according to the body to which the unit is attached.
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

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

Flash compensation, ratio, and other parameters can be controlled directly from a compatible camera

  1. Refer to support information for supported cameras and functional compatibility.
. 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

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

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

Stable wireless radio communication is ensured at distances up to 30 m/98.4 ft

  1. Sony test conditions
. 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 groups

  1. In group flash mode. 3 groups in TTL or manual flash mode.
. 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

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