The Sony HVL-F60M Flashgun lets you expand your creativity and offers the photographer a simple and portable lighting solution for working photographers and videographers alike. The F60M delivers high-illumination output in a compact, lightweight body, with an effective range of more than 90 feet (28m) and a guide number of 60. The built-in LED video light has an illuminating distance of approx. 2m at ISO 3200/f5.6 and is suitable for taking stills and capturing video. Sony's patented “Quick Shift Bounce” system allows the HVL-F60M to quickly orbit 90 degrees left and right, allowing you to maintain horizontal light distribution even when shooting vertically. The F60M features Sony's latest Multi Interface shoe and comes with the ADP-AMA Shoe Adapter for extended compatibility for cameras that feature the old auto-lock shoe.
Key Features: The Sony HVL-F60M Flashgun
Delivers high-illumination output in a compact, lightweight body, with an effective range of more than 90 feet (28m) and guide number 60. (Guide number measures the illumination capability of the flash; the higher the number, the higher the light output. Tested at ISO100, 105mm).
Quick Navi and Large Dot Matrix LCD
Quick Navi control is the intuitive User Interface from Sony Alpha camera bodies that make it a snap to locate and change settings. A large dot matrix LCD display is easy-to see and intuitive button layout makes it easy to configure the HVL-F60M for a variety of shooting needs.
Modeling light capability
Modeling light capability allows the HVL-F60M to pulse, helping photographers determine where shadows will fall before taking the picture, so they can alter lighting or subject positioning as necessary.
Other flashes only work well at shutter speeds synchronized from the camera (example: from 1/125 to 1/250 of a second). The Sony® HVL-F60M Flash Unit provides a High Speed Synchronization mode (HSS) that enables the flash to sync with shutter speeds from 1/500 to 1/4000 of a second to catch fast-moving subjects.
Color Conversion Filter for LED Light, Built-in Diffuser for LED Light
Using a built-in diffuser reduces glare and softens light. It can also lessen unnatural multiple shadows. Using a colour conversion filter lets you change the color temperature to about 3,200K (at maximum brightness).
The HVL-F60M comes with a mini-stand that can stand on its own or be mounted to a tripod or lighting stand for increased wireless freedom. Folds up for easy storage.
Quick Shift Bounce
Sony’s patented “Quick Shift Bounce” system allows the HVL-F60M to quickly orbit 90 degrees left and right, allowing you to maintain horizontal light distribution even when shooting vertically. In addition to pivoting side-to-side, the flash unit can also tilt down 10 degrees or back 150 degrees, ensuring customers the lighting freedom they need to capture that perfect shot.
Auto White Balance compensation
Auto White Balance compensation allows for more accurate white balance in flash photography sending color temperature information from the HVL-F60M to the camera, where it is incorporated into the camera’s white balance settings.
Advanced Distance Integration (ADI)
ADI (Advanced Distance Integration) metering enables the HVL-F60M to work more effectively with lenses equipped with distance encoders -- combining TTL (through-the-lens) flash metering with guide number control are calculated automatically according to the distance to the subject, the ambient light and the pre-flash reflectivity of the subject.
Flash compensation operation
As a new feature, the flash compensation settings can be operated with flash in addition to the settings made with camera body ( note: only with SLT-A99V and NEX-6 camera bodies).
Large Dot Matrix LCD
The large, easy-to-see LCD display and intuitive button layout make it easy to configure the HVL-F60M for a variety of shooting needs.

New LED video light
With the new built-in LED video light it has never been easier to switch between stills and movie shooting even in low-light conditions. LED enables checking and setting the light and shadow conditions before shooting still image or movie with live view function of EVF equipped camera. Maximum luminance of 1200 lux/(0.5m), with illuminating distance of approximately 6-1/2 feet (2m) at ISO3200/F5.6.
Wireless Ratio Control
Wireless Ratio Control allows customers to wirelessly control up to three groups of flashes, as well as specify the luminosity ratio for each group, so they can enjoy multiple-flash lighting techniques without the need for special equipment or tedious exposure settings.
Stroboscopic lighting control Stroboscopic lighting control lets the HVL-F60M fire multiple times during a single exposure, allowing customers to capture stroboscopic images where moving subjects are frozen several times in the frame.
Automatic focal-length adjustments
The HVL-F60M automatically adjusts flash for focal-length settings from 24mm to 105mm, and a built-in, slide-out wide-angle panel increases wide-angle coverage to 15mm.
Slide-out bounce sheet
The HVL-F60M features a slide-out bounce sheet built into the flash head, and can be used in portraits and other bounced light shots to direct light at a subject’s pupils to deliver more lively expression.
Dust and moisture resistant design

Sealing materials are set at joints of outer materials (body, LCD panel, Mounting Foot etc.) and around movement/ operating parts thereby increasing the life of the flash unit.

Credit is subject to application and status. Warehouse Express Ltd trading as Wex Photo Video act as credit broker and not the lender. Barclays Partner Finance act as the lender.
Can I repay early? If so how?
No repayments are scheduled in the initial six-month deferral period. However, it is possible to pay off the loan, either by way of a lump sum or in smaller amounts. If the loan is fully repaid within the six-month deferral period, then no interest is payable, but a £29.00 early-settlement will be incurred. Such repayments may be made to Barclays Partner Finance by cheque, debit card or standing order. Unfortunately it is not possible to set up a direct debit within the deferral period. Further information on how to make such repayments will be set out in the loan agreement pack provided by Barclays Partner Finance.
What happens if I don't repay within the first six months (deferral period)?
Following the six month deferral period, Barclays Partner Finance will initiate a monthly direct debit payment for the remaining duration of the loan. Interest will be charged at a rate of 19.9% APR on outstanding balances (backdated to the first date of the loan). Late payment penalties and early repayment charges will apply from this point. Barclays Partner Finance will send a reminder letter approximately one month before the six month deferral period is due to elapse. Note: If you chose to spread the cost and pay monthly, interest is charged from the start of the loan, not from the start of the repayment period.
What will I receive from the finance provider (lender)?
Barclays Partner Finance will send a loan agreement pack approximately four weeks after delivery of the goods, confirming that the account has been activated and, from this point, it is possible to make repayments against the loan.
