Notable Features

  • The HVL-F58AM flash unit delivers flexible lighting control for α (alpha) DSLR photographers. The innovative new Quick Shift Bounce system allows the flash to pivot 90 degrees left and right to maintain a proper lighting position, even when shooting vertically. The HVL-F58AM can also wirelessly control up to three groups of flashes, and Wireless Ratio Control allows you to specify luminosity ratios for each group. Additionally, the HVL-F58AM features an effective range of more than 45 feet (14.5m) and a fast, five-second recharge time. A built-in wide panel and bounce sheet provide an even greater degree of creative control.
  • Wireless Ratio Control allows customers to wirelessly control up to three groups of flashes, as well as specify the luminosity ratio for each group, so they can enjoy multiple-flash lighting techniques without the need for special equipment or tedious exposure settings.
  • The HVL-F58AM Flash Unit recharges approximately 55% faster than the previous Sony® high-end accessory flash (HVL-F56AM), so customers will be ready to catch the next great moment. And because it features a quiet recycle charge, there's no whine to distract them from their subject.
  • Auto White Balance compensation allows for more accurate white balance in flash photography sending color temperature information from the HVL-F58AM to the camera, where it is incorporated into the camera's white balance settings.
  • Modeling light capability allows the HVL-F58AM to pulse, helping photographers determine where shadows will fall before taking the picture, so they can alter lighting or subject positioning as necessary.
  • Stroboscopic lighting control lets the HVL-F58AM fire multiple times during a single exposure, allowing customers to capture stroboscopic images where moving subjects are frozen several times in the frame.
  • ADI (Advanced Distance Integration) metering enables the HVL-F58AM to work more effectively with lenses equipped with distance encoders -- combining TTL (through-the-lens) flash metering with guide number control calculated automatically according to the distance to the subject, the ambient light and the pre-flash reflectivity of the subject
  • Conventional flashes only work well at shutter speeds from 1/125 to 1/250 of a second. The Sony® HVL-F58AM Flash Unit provides High-Speed Synchronization mode that enables flash sync with shutter speeds from 1/500 to 1/4000 of a second to catch fast-moving subjects.
  • The HVL-F58AM automatically adjusts flash for focal-length settings from 24mm to 105mm -- and a built-in, slide-out wide-angle panel increases wide-angle coverage to 16mm.
  • The HVL-F58AM features a slide-out bounce sheet built into the flash head, and can be used in portraits and other bounced light shots to direct light at a subject's pupils to deliver more lively expression.
  • The large, easy-to-see LCD display and intuitive button layout make it easy to configure the HVL-F58AM for a variety of shooting needs.
  • The HVL-F58AM comes with a mini-stand that can stand on its own or be mounted to a tripod or lighting stand for increased wireless freedom. Folds up for easy storage.
