Autozoom function for changing the illumination angle
This function delivers flash light by automatically setting the optimum illumination angle, in accordance with the lens' focal length, in a range from 28 mm to 105 mm. When used with the built-in Wide Panel, the flash can cover the angle of up to 17-mm ultra wideangle lens.
Automatic TTL exposure control
Advanced photographic techniques, such as diffused lighting photography, with a diffuser attached to the flash head, or bounce photography, with the light pointed at the ceiling or wall to soften the shadows cast on the subject, without directly illuminating the subject with flash light, can be performed while the automatic exposure control function is preserved.
Bounce flash function, with movable flash head
The flash head can be tilted up by up to 90 degrees , to the left by 180 degrees , or to the right by 90 degrees . Bounce photography, in which light is reflected off a white wall or the ceiling or a reflector, increases your range of photographic expression.
