Overcome infrared limitationsWireless Radio Control shines even in scenes where infrared communication is difficult. The wireless 2.4 GHz RF transmission radio control system gives you the ability to shoot scenes with distant locations where you need to control the light on your subject from as far as 98' or in strong sunlight where the sun washes out or objects block infrared ability and when objects block an infra-red signal from an IR flash system.
