The HVL-F32M is a compact dust and water resistant external flash from Sony made to suit mirrorless cameras and smaller DSLRs and compatible with Sony ADI / P-TTL. The flash balances a guide number of 105' at ISO 100 and 105mm as well as an auto 24-105mm (15mm with Panel) Zoom Range on full-frame cameras which can be expanded to 15mm with the built-in wide-angle panel. The unit tilts from -8 to 90° and as well rotates 180° right and 90° left to bounce the light in horizontal and vertical shooting positions. It is capable of 0.1-5 seconds recycling time with slow, high-speed, 1st and 2nd curtain sync. Every photographer will benefit from the capability of the flash to be used as Wireless TTL Controller/Remote Flash. The LCD panel on the back can be utilized for viewing and changing settings. This flash runs on 2 AA batteries.
Product Features in Detail
With a guide number of 32 (GN322), this powerful flash is ready to shine a light on a variety of situations.
LCD panel indicates modes and settings
The informative LCD panel takes the guesswork out of flash photography, as it enables you to change modes and settings easily with fingertip control. There's a charge progress indicator so you'll always have a clear idea of when you can fire off your next shot. Mode and flash intensity are also shown on the LCD panel, plus a warning display when the remaining charge gets too low.
Through-the-Lens (TTL) wireless flash
Integrated operation with the camera, with the freedom of wireless. You can position and direction the flash exactly how you want. Use this high flexibility to reduce the intensity of shadows, avoid halation, and add soft shadows that bring out a sense of depth and presence. Syncing is possible at all shutter speeds to make wireless high-speed sync possible.
Auto White Balance Adjustment
Color temperature varies according to the environment you're shooting in, and the color temperature of a flash should match that of the ambient light to look natural. With this intelligent function, color temperature information is transferred from the flash unit to the camera for correct White Balance setting, thereby enabling more natural-looking flash photography.
Compact and slim
The HVL-F32M is only 82 mm thick, giving it a slim profile that makes it easy to use and carry. It takes up minimal space in your camera case or bag where room is limited, and once you put it on your camera it is very easy to handle.
Dust and moisture resistant design
To ensure reliability even in challenging conditions such as outdoor wilderness situations, specially designed seals at joints around the body, LCD panel, mounting foot, and moving parts keep dust and moisture out. This is a particular bonus in outdoor usage where you have no control over various factors including wind and environmental dust.3
Auto Zoom Control Optimized for image sensor size
This function automatically optimizes the illumination angle to match the camera’s image sensor size, minimizing light fall-off at the image periphery. The flash coverage required for cameras using 35-mm full frame and APS-C size image sensors differ substantially, and this intelligent function automatically provides the optimum flash coverage for each. Coverage range is 15 mm/24–105 mm.
As the name implies, "bounce flash" means that light is bounced off a surface such as the ceiling, rather than being directed straight at the subject. This reduces the intensity of shadows and produces a softer light for more natural-looking images. Because the flash has a pivoting head, this bounce flash technique can be used anytime, anywhere.
High-speed sync (HSS)
Take advantage of high-shutter-speed Auto shooting. Whereas conventional sync shooting required the shutter speed to be the same as or slower than the synced flash speed, the aperture would be narrowed, making it difficult to gain background bokeh effects. But with high-speed sync (HSS) you can use flash with any shutter speed, even up to the highest shutter speed provided by the camera. This allows you to increase the aperture as needed to create a narrow depth of field that keeps your subject in perfect focus while the background blurs, for beautiful portraits. Wireless high-speed sync is also possible with compatible cameras.
Advanced Distance Integration (ADI)4
ADI provides automatic metering that is virtually unaffected by the reflectance of subjects or backgrounds, maintaining correct exposure even with overly reflective or overly dark subjects. It pre-flashes the unit to incorporate the reflected light measurement, together with precise distance information from a compatible camera’s lens, to achieve the optimum flash level (E-mount not supported).
Multi Interface Shoe
This product is designed for use with Multi Interface Shoe flash.
