FreeXwire Radio TTL Multi-flash Control

FreeXwire provides professional photographers with TTL wireless control for multiple flash lighting and linking of diverse flash units.  Use it for studio flash photography, wedding photography, event photography, action sports photography, and more.

The FreeXwire system separately controls several zones of flash, giving you control of flash exposure ratios from each group of flash.  Various FreeXwire components coordinate wireless TTL exposures with Qflash 5, Trio, Pilot, CoPilot, and even Nikon and Canon speedlights.

Since FreeXwire is wireless radio, it works to hundreds of feet / meters and isn't blocked by objects as with IR light beam TTL systems.

FreeXwire FW7Q

Clips onto a Qflash T5dr or X5dr and receives TTL commands from a Qflash Trio, a Pilot, or CoPilot mounted on a camera hot shoe.  It also takes commands from a Qflash 5 connected to a FreeXwire FW9T transmitter or FW10w transceiver.

FreeXwire FW10W Transceiver

The FW10W can be set to Transmit or Receive. Use in pairs or with the Qflash Pilot, Qflash CoPilot, FW8R receiver, or FW9T transmitter. Use FW10W for Basic Flash Synchronization, Remote Flash TTL Control, Wireless Control of Remote Camera, or
Camera / Flash Sequencer. Extend the Range by using multiple units set as "Repeaters"      

FreeXwire FW9T

The versatile FreeXwire system

FreeXwire FW7Q
Clips onto a Qflash T5dr or X5dr and receives TTL commands from a Qflash Trio, a Pilot, or CoPilot mounted on a camera hot shoe.  It also takes commands from a Qflash 5 connected to a FreeXwire FW9T transmitter or FW10w transceiver.

FreeXwire FW9T
Connects to a Qflash 5 to send TTL signals to remote flash. The remotes can be a Trio, a Qflash 5 with FW7Q or FW8R receiver, or even Nikon and Canon speedlights with a Qlink accessory

FreeXwire FW8R
Receives TTL signals as described above, and in conjunction with a Qlink, provides TTL control for Nikon and Canon speedlights. Used without Qlink, It receives sync signals for studio lights and other flash units.

FreeXwire QLink
FW6C (Canon) and FW6N (Nikon)


The Wireless radio solution to link Quantum, Canon, & Nikon flashes with the FreeXwire system. The QLink and an FW8R receiver allows you to control your remote Canon or Nikon flashes with your Pilot or on-camera Trio.

Features
You're in control! From your camera position, use the "master" Qflash 5, Trio, Pilot or CoPilot to set lighting ratios of multiple remote flashes, even set the mode...manual, TTL...remotely.

4 Zones - eight Channels.
Set remote flashes or cameras to any one of four zones, then turn each zone on and off from the FreeXwire transmitter, Pilot, or CoPilot.  Chose one of 8 Channels to prevent interference from other FreeXwires in the vicinity.

Fire remote cameras. FreeXwire can be used to trigger a remote camera (including a companion remote flash).

Studio or location versatility. In the studio or on location, use FreeXwire to trigger power packs, monolights or your camera manufacturer's flash, and avoid all those messy sync cables. Additionally, a Flash Sequencer function in the FW10W transceiver can sequentially trigger up to four remote power packs for action sports or fast fashion shoots, as fast as 13 frames per second.

Basic Flash Synchronization Can be used in pairs for basic wireless synchronization between any camera having a hot shoe or PC outlet and virtually any flash. Flip a switch to convert from transmitter to receiver

Remote Flash TTL Control For setups using TTL control of remote Quantum Qflash T5d-R, X5d-R or any Qflash upgraded to a 3d-R, use transceiver FW10W as receiver only. Each remote flash requires its own receiver. Each group can have an unlimited number of Qflash. Each group can be independently turned on an off from the camera position using transmitter FW9T.

Camera / Flash Sequencer Wirelessly trigger many professional and semi-professional cameras remotely. Transceiver FW10W has Flash Sequencer function (not available on other FreeXwire devices): For action or fast fashion shoots, you can sequence up to four remote power packs, cameras or flashes. Transceiver FW10W will activate the power packs in sequence, advancing to the next pack with each shot, as fast as 13 frames per second. At the end of the sequence of four, the first pack is automatically triggered again, and so on. One transceiver FW10W is required at camera position, and one FreeXwire receiver FW8R or transceiver FW10W is required at each flash or camera.

Wireless Control of Remote Camera Wirelessly trigger many professional and semi-professional cameras from 250-500 ft. (75-150m). Photographer triggers remote camera using a handheld FreeXwire transmitter FW9T or FW10w, sending signal to transceiver FWT10W located at remote camera. Transceiver may be set to "always awake" for fast shooting, or placed in "sleep mode" to prolong battery life up to 500 hours.

Extended Range "Repeater" FreeXwire FW10W transceiver can also act as a repeater to extend wireless range by about 250-500 ft. (75-300m) for each FW10W in the "chain" between transmitter and receiver. (Note: for each transceiver in the chain, maximum allowed shutter speed with flash is reduced by half.)

Digital Transmitter/Receiver Set FW89
The FW8R & FW9T are available as an economical set of one FreeXwire transmitter FW9T and one FreeXwire receiver FW8R, including one basic #434 sync cable.

Basic Flash Synchronization Provides basic camera-to-remote flash synchronization or remote firing of camera.

Remote Control of Qflash When FreeXwire components are combined with a Quantum Qflash T5d-R, X5d-R or any Qflash upgraded to 3d-R and a dedicated camera TTL adapter, you have extensive remote control of manual, automatic and TTL exposures, including, ratio and fill flash.

Wireless Control of Remote Camera Receiver FW8R can wirelessly trigger many professional and semi-professional cameras remotely. Receives signals from a hand-held transmitter FW9T.

Control Multiple Remote Qflash Add additional Qflash T5d-R, X5d-R or any Qflash upgraded to 3d-R and FW8R or FW7Q receivers for more complex lighting scenarios. Remote flash can be organized in two separate groups; control each group independently for exposure ratio and on/off. Limitless number of flash in each group. FreeXwire has eight frequency channels and four zones, offering 256 control possibilities.

Extend Range Insert a FreeXwire FW10W transceiver between any FreeXwire transmitter and receiver and extend useful range by about 250-500 ft. (75-300m).

Designed Specifically for Quantum Qflash T5d-R and X5d-R Plugs directly in side of Qflash. Small, lightweight, requires neither batteries nor cables. Responds to four zones and eight channel frequencies from FreeXwire transmitter FW9T, for 256 possible combinations. Confirmation/status light ensures wireless link is working properly.

Remote Control of Qflash in TTL, Automatic and Manual Modes Used with Quantum Qflash T5d-R and X5d-R, FreeXwire system allows independent control of two separate groupings of remote Qflash (each flash requires its own receiver). Each group can be remotely adjusted for exposure in 1/3-stop increments over a four stop range. Each group can be independently turned on an off from the camera position.

Receiver FW7Q receives all TTL exposure information sent from a camera via a Quantum dedicated TTL adapter connected to a "master" Qflash T5d-R or X5d-R at the camera position. The exposure ratio of the remote groups can be independently adjusted in 1/3-stop increments - over a five stop range - in relation to the basic TTL exposure.

Important Note: In addition to PILOT and TRIO update, some older FreeXwire FW8R require a firmware update for use with QLINK. This update is free. If your FW8R serial number is R72125 or ABOVE, it DOES NOT require an update. If the serial number is R68349 or BELOW, send your FW8R to Quantum Instruments.
