Our favorite Hybrid Hero is back, and this time with Breaking News!
MC Contributor and Photo-Video Innovator Will Crockett is the first guy in the country to get his hands on the new PRO Flash solutions made specifically for the new Panasonic Lumix GH3 and Panasonic Lumix G5 mirrorless camera systems by Quantum – a major player in wireless TTL Flash systems. The GH3 and the G5 are two of the best camera releases of the last 12 months, and the advent of these new flash systems mean that top level pro companies are now taking mirrorless cameras seriously.
“Pro photographers and serious enthusiasts have been clamoring for a TTL flash solution for the Lumix GH3. Although there are some good / ok speedlite flashes available for it, the GH2 and the G5, none have the big power, fast recycle time, or the radio-based triggering system needed for using flash outdoors… until now.
The top of the line flash brand for battery powered pro lighting is Quantum, a long time trusted American company known for outstanding reliability and service. They make great stuff, but, it ain’t cheap.
The Quantum Qflash Trio is a rather oversized shoe mount flash that has a built-in transceiver for connecting limitless flash units to most pro brands of cameras with full manual, auto, a sweet auto-fill flash mode, and the best TTL mode there is. Yes, Quantum’s QTTL mode is widely considered better than Canon or Nikons – try it and see?
Hats off to Quantum for listening to the pros moving into Lumix GH3 cameras when they were told how much pros need Qflash to work both on-camera; and wirelessly off-camera with Lumix. To say thanks (more like to finally shut us up! ha!), Quantum sent us over the very first Trio for Lumix and first CoPilot (wirless transmitter) for Lumix. So needless to say, I’m extremely happy to be able to show you this simple, powerful (and HSS!) solution.”
