  • Works Great, But....
    Verified BuyerReviewed by CamMan - April 26, 2019

    This flash works great with my A7iii, but sure does use some batteries. I used this flash for a wedding and I went through 12 batteries. This flash work great but make use you have a lot of batteries.

    It can work at high speeds or as a needed fill light.(See pics) It's beautiful how you can quickly switch to a video light when needed. Fantastic purchase! :-)

  • Versitle flash on- and off-camera
    Verified BuyerReviewed by PawX4 - December 26, 2020

    I purchased the F45RM when, after 11 years, my faithful F56AM finally died. The F45RM is a worthy replacement. The head is fully articulating and has a built-in diffuser and small bounce card that can be deployed alone or together. The F45RM comes with a mounting stand for easy use as a remote slave flash and can be triggered by radio (FA-WRC1M) or optical signal from a master on-camera flash. I use an F20M as an optical trigger. The control wheel and function and menu buttons are intuitive and familiar to anyone using an E-mount camera. The sliding lock lever on the F45RM is much nicer than the lock wheel on the F20M.

  • Great speedlight for a7rii!
    Reviewed by Daniel V - October 11, 2017

    I purchased this flash specifically for my a7rii for on-the-go applications when I don't want to carry my bigger light. I'm happy that the flash pattern is nice and round and light is soft which surprised me in a good way of course. I used to own other Nikon flashes before I switched to mirrorless (happy I did) but this one from and for Sony is just awesome! The features like installed radio, which is super easy to pair with FA-WRC1M, focus assisting LED/video light and off course the perfect size for a7rii are worthy of investment!
