Posted by at 3:36 pm on May 2, 2011

Sony has introduced an external flash unit, the HVL-F43AM, and several other accessories designed for the company’s range of Alpha DSLRs. The flash accessory features GN43 output at 105mm/100 ISO and a “quick shift bounce” system, which enables users to maintain the flash head position while quickly switching between horizontal and vertical orientation. Wireless controls provide further options for managing light ratios across three separate units without additional equipment.

Users can set power levels in 22 increments, ranging from 1/1 through 1/128 level, while the highest output power requires a 2.9-second recycle time. The water- and dust-resistance housing integrates an LCD screen and direction buttons for output control.

Aside from the flash unit, Alpha owners can also obtain a new mounting bracket for multiple cold-shoe accessories, a soft carrying case, and lens hood for the DT 35mm F1.8 SAM and 85mm F2.8 SAM lenses. The flash unit will be available for $350, while the bracket, case and lens hood are priced at $50, $50 and $20, respectively.
