Is there a way to trigger from the 7r the Sony Flash HVL-F60M when it's off camera?, thanks

It works fine with the HVL-F20M/AM camera - as an IR link (it needs a line of sight).

Sony also has a wireless adapter and a cable adapter - they have been posted here before.

With the Sony solution, you get TTL and HSS.

  • [ I have other adapters (Cowboy Studio), that work fine too, but without TTL and HSS. Funny is that the HVL-F45/60M/AM work with these adapters, but the HVL-F20M/AM do not. ]

If you use two HVL-F45/60M/AM flashes, you have more capabilities, such as dialing in the strength on each. With the HVL-F20M/AM you do not, but you can control each flash individually (including the HVL-F20 on camera).

Thank you, do you have the P/N for the Sony Wireless adapter?

It's the ADPMAA and is proprietary to Sony. I don't think a third party makes it. It includes the pin connection to the MIS shoe. Amazon, BH, etc. carry it for $25. It works fine and has a stable connection without wobble of the flash attached. TTL does flow through with an AM flash attached to a camera with the MIS shoe.

Just to be clear, Sony does not make a wireless adapter.  They make flash shoe adapters, which is what the ADPMAA is.  Nothing wireless about it.  Just a dumb adapter.

Why spend $400 on a HVL-F43M to use as a wireless commander when you can get the Odin set for $329.  You don't want to use any (or much) of that flash power on the camera anyway.
