The Hahnel Tuff TTL is a robust wireless flash trigger set that offers TTL flash exposure functionality when used with Canon cameras and external speedlites that support Canon’s E-TTL system. The units are designed to be resilient incorporating a removable, tough siliconehousing that protects against impact. Utilising 2.4GHZ radio frequency, the Tuff TTL offers dependable flash triggering up to 200m. It also offers High Speed Sync(HSS) mode that allows you to sync with compatible Canon flashes up to the fastest shutter speed of your camera - perfect for “shutting down” ambient light for a unique look – as well as Second-curtain Sync.
Both the Tuff TTL transmitter and receivers are powered by two AA batteries and feature on/off power switches, digital channel matching, and a single menu control button for ease-of-use.
Compatible with the following Canon Cameras:
EOS 1200D EOS 1D Mark IV EOS 1DS Mark II EOS 20D EOS 30D EOS 400D EOS 40D EOS 550D EOS 5D EOS 5D MARK II EOS 5D MARK III EOS 600D EOS 60D SLR EOS 6D SLR EOS 7D EOS M MIRRORLESS G12 (SUPERZOOM) SX50 HS
Rugged design – both the TTL Tuff transmitter and receiver are housed in solid casings with a tough silicone rubber outer housing to reduce the risk of damage from accidental impact.
Great for outdoors or studio shooting – perfect for capturing wildlife and other outdoor photography; or in the studio. With the optional mini USB to 3.5mm/6.3mm sync cable you can also use the Tuff TTL to trigger studio lights.
Canon E-TTL compatible – compatible with Canon’s E-TTL flash exposure system when used with compatible Canon cameras and TTL speedlites. Sends exposure information to the flash so you can concentrate on getting the shot right!
2.4GHz wireless radio transmission - ensures reliable & dependable flash triggering with a range of more than 200m. With radio triggers you are not restricted to line-of-sight communication and don’t have the limitations that optical systems have in broad daylight.
Flash Exposure Compensation - You can control the output of the flash using flash exposure compensation control from within your camera menu, whether you are in normal, HSS or Second-curtain Sync modes.
High Speed Sync (HSS) mode – selectable on the Tuff TTL transmitter via the main “M” Menu Button, HSS mode allows you to achieve shutter speeds beyond the cameras’ normal flash sync speed and will allow syncing up to the highest shutter speed on the camera (though at reduced flash output). Perfect for “shutting down” ambient light levels to achieve a unique look to your subject, even in broad daylight.
Second Curtain Sync - selectable on the Tuff TTL transmitter via the main “M” Menu Button, Second-curtain Sync allows you to achieve “dragged shutter” effects on things like lights at night time whilst capturing a sharp image of your main subject.
Digital Channel Matching - provides reliable TTL connection & eliminates the risk of interference from other wireless products within range.
Easy-to-use controls – These units are Plug & Play. Just connect to your camera and flash and start shooting beautifully exposed flash photos!
Large “Test” button – located on both the transmitter & receiver, the large test button makes it easy to ensure everything is working.
Single Menu button “M” on Transmitter – The large, single menu button “M” located on the transmitter makes it easy to cycle through Normal, High Speed Sync & Second Curtain Sync modes.
Power ON/OFF slide switches – Power switches on both the transmitter and receiver allow you to easily power off the devices, conserving battery power when not in use or when you don’t wish to use the flash.
Mini USB Port – A mini USB port on both the transmitter and receiver allows for firmware upgrades, as well as optional external power, and for connecting the receiver to studio lights using the optional studio sync cable.
Convenient Power Source – The Tuff TTL transmitter and receiver are both conveniently powered by 2 x AA batteries. Expect to get around 120 hours of use from a pair of regular alkaline AA batteries.
1/4-inch Tripod Mount - Receiver has a 1 /4-inch socket underneath for mounting to 1/4 inch tripod mounts, lighting spigots with ¼” male thread etc.
Optional Extra Receivers – you can purchase optional extra receivers for using additional flash guns.
