High-output, high-speed flash with quick operation

The HVL-F60RM clip-on flash unit features high GN60 power, high-speed continuous shooting support, and fast operation that are ideal for advanced to professional users. Wireless radio commander/receiver functionality is included.

GN60 power and continuous shooting support

The high GN60 output and 220 times continuous emission of this flash unit provides plenty of power for various shooting.


Charge cycle time is 1.7 seconds, or just 0.6 seconds with the External Battery Adaptor (FA-EBA1) (optional) for continuous shooting. Proper flash synchronisation is maintained during continuous shooting, minimising flash misfires and ruined shots.

Quick Shift Bounce and direct light output level button for smoother operation

Quick Shift Bounce allows to use the lighting features from horizontal to vertical

Quick Shift Bounce is Sony’s original flash head rotating mechanism with the main unit tiltable from horizontal to vertical and it allows fast flash position changes. (90° left and right, 150° up/8° down)

Reliable multi-flash radio control

In addition to optical remote triggering, wireless radio triggering is supported. Wireless radio communication works reliably at distances of up to 30 meters and even around obstacles or in bright conditions. A total of 15 flash units can be assigned to up to 5 groups.

Stable wireless radio communication

Conventional optical triggering and wireless radio triggering cover a wide range of situations. A HVL-F60RM mounted on a compatible camera can be paired with off-camera units to provide reliable communication over long distances in conditions that would make optical communication difficult. Slow sync, rear-curtain sync, and multi flash are supported.

Multi flash radio control

Up to 15 flash units can be assigned to up to 5 groups for wireless flash control at distances of up to 30 meters.  Optional Wireless Radio Commander (FA-WRC1M) and Wireless Radio Receiver (FA-WRR1) units allow the HVL-F60RM to be used with Sony flash units that do not have built-in radio wireless capability, as well as the radio-capable HVL-F45RM.

Common features for uncommon lighting techniques

Control the ideal combination of shutter speed and flash intensity.

P-TTL flash control

Appropriate flash output is determined by using pre-flash to measure exposure.

LED light and AF assist

Not only for studio, but also for outdoor shooting, a built-in LED light  is very useful. It also functions as an AF assist light to ensure accurate autofocus operation in dim lighting. The LED can make manual focus easier in dark situations too.

Colour filters

The supplied colour filters can be used to match or complement existing lighting in order to achieve natural white balance or create a specific atmosphere.
