Sony HVL-F60M flash review.
The HVL-F60M is Sony’s top-line flash unit, replacing the HVL-F58AM in 2012, and should be familiar to recent purchasers of the A99 as this flash was included. Sony’s newest flash is first rate, including build quality, output and power settings. However, it would have been nice to see a stereo or PC connection for remote operation using Pocket Wizards or RadioPoppers etc, (as opposed to the optical wireless system); I’m sure this is coming though, direct from Sony using a Sony receiver and triggers. Works with Radiopoppers™ in manual mode (tested, but probably works with Pocket Wizards too), although you still need a hotshoe adapter with an appropriate plug. Check out the review here.
