Sony HVL-F32M Multi-Interface Shoe External Flash (Black)

Compact, yet packed with features, the HVL-F32M External Flash from Sony is well-suited for use on mirrorless cameras as well as smaller DSLRs, or for those who are simply looking for a lightweight on-camera lighting solution. The flash balances power and size with a respectable guide number of 105' at ISO 100 and 105mm as well as an auto zoom range of 24-105mm on full-frame cameras, expandable to 15mm with the built-in wide-angle panel. Also, unit can tilt upward 90 degrees as well as rotate 180 degrees right and 90 degrees left for bouncing light in horizontal and vertical shooting positions.

Bounce Structure

As the name implies, bounce flash means that light is bounced off a surface such as the ceiling rather than being directed straight at the subject. This reduces the intensity of shadows and produces a softer light for more natural-looking images. Since the flash has a pivoting head, this bounce flash technique can be used anytime, anywhere.  

Through-the-Lens (TTL) Wireless Flash

Integrated operation with the camera, with the freedom of wireless. You can position and direction the flash exactly as you want. Use this high flexibility to reduce the intensity of shadows, avoid halation, and add soft shadows that bring out a sense of depth and presence. Syncing is possible at all shutter speeds to make wireless high-speed sync possible.

Advanced Distance Integration (ADI)

ADI provides automatic metering that is virtually unaffected by the reflectance of subjects or backgrounds, maintaining correct exposure even with overly reflective or overly dark subjects. It pre-flashes the unit to incorporate the reflected light measurement, together with precise distance information from a compatible camera's lens, to achieve the optimum flash level (E-mount not supported). 

LCD Panel

The informative LCD panel takes the guesswork out of flash photography as it enables you to change modes and settings easily with fingertip control. A charge progress indicator is equipped so you'll always have a clear idea of when you can fire off your next shot. Mode and flash intensity are also shown on the LCD panel, plus a warning display when the remaining charge gets too low.

High-Speed Sync (HSS)

Take advantage of high-shutter-speed Auto shooting. Whereas conventional sync shooting required that the shutter speed be the same as or slower than the synced flash speed, the aperture would be narrowed, making it difficult to gain background bokeh effects. But with High-Speed Sync (HSS) you can use flash with any shutter speed, even up to the highest shutter speed provided by the camera. This allows you to increase the aperture as needed to create a narrow depth of field that keeps your subject in perfect focus while the background blurs, for beautiful portraits. Wireless high-speed sync is also possible with compatible cameras.

Auto White Balance Adjustment

Color temperature varies according to the environment you're shooting in, and the color temperature of a flash should match that of the ambient light to look natural. With this intelligent function, color temperature information is transferred from the flash unit to the camera for correct White Balance setting, thereby enabling more natural-looking flash photography.

Dust and Moisture-resistant

To ensure reliability even in challenging conditions such as outdoor wilderness situations, specially designed seals at joints around the body, LCD panel, mounting foot, and moving parts keep dust and moisture out. This is a particular bonus in outdoor usage where you have no control over various factors including wind and environmental dust.9

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Flash Purchased for a small wedding job worked perfectly easy to use with expected results.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Hot shoe mount breaks easy. The foot mount will break. I have several that break and am now going back to canon. I love the A7r2 but the flash system sucks. I do weddings and off camera Flash, all the time with my seniors, having an extensive reliable flash system that doesn't break when you bump it against your body when you have two cameras setup is a MUST. BYE BYE Sony! Back to a good ole reliable flash system that canon has. If you ever decide to strengthen your foot on your flashes, I would consider your camera again. I love them but need a reliable tough camera flash system.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from NIce Flash - very compact It seems like the contacts are flimsy looking at the connections onthe base. Wonder how long it will last before there are problems.
Date published: 2016-10-24
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pretty OK Decent Flash with nice features, TTL is smart, bounce and diffuser built in are great. It eats through batteries - even when off. Love the thought process behind the features and all of the included accessories. For the price... Wishing it had infrared focus assist because NO ONE likes AF Assist Lamps when shooting events. Feels a little cheap in the hands, I do appreciate the case. There are 3rd party flashes available, but one never knows sony's compatibility at this point.
