Simultaneously with the Sony a7C full-frame mirrorless camera and the “smallest and lightest full-frame zoom lens” Sony FE 28-60mm F4-5.6 was introduced flash HVL-F28RM.
Like the other two novelties, the flash may boast a compact size, but it has another feature worth mentioning. When used with the Sony a7C, a7S III, a7R IV and a9 II cameras, F28RM can use the information provided by the facial recognition function of the camera. This allows you to better adjust the white balance to the surrounding light and the flash light hitting the face for more natural colors.
The leading number of flashes is 28. You can choose the tilt angle of the head. Possible values are 0, 20°, 40°, 60°, 80° and 120°. The flash supports radio remote control. It is powered by two AA elements. A fresh pair of alkaline elements is enough for 110 pulses of full power. The flash is protected from dust and moisture.
Sales of HVL-F28RM should start this winter at a price of 250 dollars.
