Expanded Bowens XMTR Remote - Canon Key Features:
The built-in display screen clearly presents vital information about the group (A/B/C/D/E), flash power, channel, and flash mode (OFF/TTL/FLS). The display is backlit with a green tint for high visibility when working in low-lit conditions. Additionally, after the remote has been set-up the display dims down so that the bright light from the screen doesn't interfere with your work. This also helps with power consumption as the display screen completely switches off when inactive. To turn it back on simply press any button.
The XMTR can trigger multiple modes including Strobe Mode and Group Flash Mode. It is capable of triggering both TTL (Through the Lens) and Flash (manual) Modes to suit every photographer's needs. Some prefer manual flash mode as it is great for still subjects such as in portraiture photography, food photography, or product photography. The TTL mode on the other hand, is preferred for moving subjects, such as in a club setting or action sequences, since it can measure the amount of light needed during a shot.
