The new broncolor RFS 2.2 HS transceiver

In this ‘How To’ video Karl & Urs demonstrate the new High Speed Sync capabilities of the Siros Lights with the new RFS2.2 trigger, allowing to sync your flash up to 1/8000th of a second on a DSLR. Check this video to see the cool effects possible with this feature.

The new broncolor RFS 2.2 HS transceiver:
The RFS 2.2 transceiver is a remote control or radio flash trigger for one or more broncolor power packs or monolights equipped with an RFS 2 interface. Power packs or monolights not equipped with an RFS 2 interface can be operated by connecting an RFS 2.2 transceiver (as receiver).

RFS 2.2 as transmitter:
The RFS 2.2 transmitter – optimized for use with Nikon, Canon or Sony cameras – is all photographers need to enjoy the benefits of working in HS mode. HS must be activated on the flash unit so that the flash curve is modified and, in combination with RFS 2.2, the right exposure achieved with no restrictions on shutter speed while shooting with flash.

Due to the unique construction of the hot shoe for Nikon, Canon and Sony camera systems, using RFS 2.2. with other brands is not recommended or needs to be tested before use.

Using RFS 2.2 as HS transmitter:
In HS mode the transmitter is set at the factory to work correctly with all camera models from Nikon, Sony or Canon. The time from when the flash is triggered to when the shutter opens is controlled by a preprogramed trigger delay to obtain the best lighting results with an exposure time of up to 1/8000s.

With HS selected, the HSMA menu (HS Manual Adjust) can be used to choose an optimal exposure setting based on the camera model. HSMA mode overrides the automatic HS flash trigger
