Quantum's New Wireless TTL System


QUANTUM PRESS RELEASE: Introducing Quantum's new wireless TTL system, Qflash 5d, and FreeXWires FW7Q, FW8R, FW9T:

Quantum's new "QTTL(TM)" system links Qflash 5d series flashes to digital and film cameras wirelessly. Get wireless TTL for Canon, Nikon, Olympus, Hasselblad, Mamiya, and Contax cameras. Quantum's QTTL(TM) Adapters with a FreeXWire FW9T Transmitter will send commands to one or more remote FreeXWire receivers connected to Qflashes.

Qflash 5d features

Full dedication - Connect a Qflash 5d to a camera using a Dw series QTTL Adapter and make Qflash a powerful, fully dedicated flash that mimics the features of camera manufacturers' flashes.

Wireless TTL with Fill-flash - When teamed with a FreeXWire system, Qflash receives your camera's TTL exposure commands wirelessly. Wireless fill-flash offsets are set on the D and Dw series QTTL adapters, or on the camera.

Wireless Linked Auto with Qflash Ratios - Set up an on-camera Qflash and one or two remote Qflashes with FreeXWires. Control the ratios of the remote Qflashes wirelessly from the panel of the on-camera Qflash. All Qflashes track the f-stop of the camera as you change it.

The following D and Dw adapters transfer camera TTL exposure for wireless transmission by FW9T, FW7Q, FW8R and updated FW10w Transceivers: D10w- Olympus; D12w- Nikon, Fuji, Kodak; D13w- Canon; D19w- Hasselblad; D24- Contax; D25- Mamiya.

Mount an FW9T Transmitter and FW12 Hot Shoe Adapter to the camera hot shoe to be totally wireless. Or, add a D or Dw series QTTL adapter to the camera and transmit your camera's f/stop, ISO, and TTL exposure information to the remote Qflash 5d.

When connected to a Qflash (with an FW31 accessory cable) camera TTL information is relayed wirelessly.
