Easily control flashes through wireless radio receivers

Enjoy the confidence and flexibility of radio wireless flash and camera triggering, even in bright lighting conditions or around obstacles, making difficult shots and wide shooting areas (30m) easier. The FA-WRC1M wireless radio commander, attached to compatible cameras, allows reliable triggering when combined with the FA-WRR1 wireless radio receiver .

Wireless capabilities that go the distance

The FA-WRC1M wireless radio commander and FA-WRR1 wireless radio receiver feature a maximum range of 30m (98.4ft) so you can flexibly create multiple wireless flash setups over an expansive area, including having the flash positioned behind the camera in a way that would be impossible with a conventional infrared system.

Simply hold down the receiver power button for a few seconds to enter pairing mode, then add each receiver to the radio commander.
