Once again crowd sourcing has fueled a new photography product aimed at the mirrorless camera user. The FlashQ is a 2.4ghz wireless transmitter and receiver that not only allows you to use off-camera speed lights but does it in a very stylish manner.
With a bulk of channels for selection, system can choose a clean channel smartly. At the same time, we can avoid collision with other wireless system in the same frequency band.
FlashQ system can support up to 8 receivers simultaneously, provided that those receivers had been paired up with the transmitter. This gives the scalability of multiple wireless flashes and makes your photography more creative. FlashQ receiver has a sync cord output via function. Port (micro-USB form factor). The sync cord allows connection to the sync port of studio strobes or external flashes. FlashQ supports remote triggering flashes at sync speeds up to 1/250 sec*. The trigger signal is barely on the central contact of standard ISO hot shoe. No TTL information is transmitted by FlashQ. This makes FlashQ compatible with most camera and Flash brands. According to LightPixel Labs the FlashQ is compatible with a wide range of camera systems. But don’t get too excited because as a crowd sourcing product it is not yet available till October 2014 and retail price has not been determined. TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS
