Face detection in the camera is connected to flash control.

When used with a compatible camera, the balance of light falling on the subject's face and ambient light is used to automatically adjust white balance, resulting in a natural, lifelike portrayal of the subject's face.

Auto white balance accuracy that only original equipment can achieve

The Sony HVL-F46RM flash unit transmits colour temperature information to the camera, which the camera utilises to precisely alter white balance.

Sync up to 1/400 sec. shutter speed with the A1

With flash sync speeds of up to 1/400 sec, you can use the Sony HVL-F46RM flash to minimise depth of field while spotlighting the main subject, highlight moving figures against a bright background, and more.

Comprehensive control from compatible cameras

A compatible camera can be used to fine-tune flash correction, light ratio, and other flash characteristics. A camera custom key can be assigned to access the Sony HVL-F46RM flash parameter display. When you access flash settings through the camera interface, they are shown in the language you have chosen.

Custom keys

For convenient access, functions can be freely assigned to the unit's four-way controller, centre button, and control wheel.

Metal Shoe Foot with Rugged Side Frame

The metal shoe with reinforced side frame "Metal Shoe Foot with Rugged Side Frame," which also houses the unit's electrical contacts, provides better frontal physical shock and impact resistance.

Improved shoe sealing boosts dust and moisture resistant

When used in conjunction with certain camera bodies, a structure designed specifically to reduce dust and moisture penetration provides even greater dust and moisture resistance and reliability.

Reliable sync for continuous shooting

The Sony HVL-F46RM flash delivers continuous high-speed bursts of up to 60 consecutive flashes at 10 frames per second
