More Amazing Features

  • 7 Stops of Power Adjustment: Going from full power to 1/128th power, a full 7 stops of adjustment opens the creative possibilities and allows larger apertures to be used when needed.
  • High Power: When fitted with our standard reflector, the 400Ws of power produces a guide number of 323 (ft) / 98.48 (m). When set to minimum power, the guide number is reduced to 3.124 (ft) allowing even the largest apertures to be used.
  • IGBT Technology: Insulated-gate bipolar transistor technology works in the same way with this new flash head as with hotshoe flashes, which means that the flash duration becomes progressively shorter when the power is reduced, this is the opposite of what happens with conventional flash heads.
  • Ultra Fast Recycling: Even at full power, the recycling speed is an incredible 0.61 second, and at minimum power this reduces to 1/20th second, allowing any camera to be used in continuous fire mode.
  • A Built-in 2.4GHz Receiver: This allows you to use the head remotely without any extra plug-in receivers!
  • Compatible with all other flashes: Can be used with all other flash heads and with all flashguns. Some flashguns can be used with the same, state of the art triggering/remote control system.
  • USB and 6.2mm Sync Port: This allows you to use our previous generation Wavesync Commander or any 3rd party triggers.
  • S1/S2 Slave Options: The slave cell can be set to either respond to, or to ignore the first flash, allowing it to be used with hotshoe flashguns that fire a pre-flash. The slave cell can also be switched off so that it doesn't flash in response to other flashes.
  • Fan Cooled: An internal cooling fan prevents the risk of overheating. But just in case, there are also overheat protection systems integrated for extra peace of mind.
  • Precise Digital Control: Every feature of the SuperFast Pro can be adjusted from the control panel, to give you total command of the flash, which gives you the power to take your perfect shot. Most features can also be adjusted using the Wavesync Commander 2.4GHz and the Wacesync 2.4GHz Mach triggers.
  • 150W Halostar Modelling Lamp: The modelling lamp is fully adjustable from the control panel in 5% increments.
  • High Speed Sync Enabled: This flash head is geared up to allow HSS, when using our new Wavesync 2.4G Mach Trigger.
  • Digitally Displayed t.1 Times: The flash durations are displayed in real time on the LCD display when in Manual Mode.

The Buttons

Test The Test Button allows you to fire the flash directly from the Control Panel.
Lamp The Lamp Button allows you to adjust the modelling lamp. A single press will turn on the modelling lamp. A second press will allow you to adjust the intensity of the modelling lamp in 5% increments. A long press will turn the modelling lamp off. The modelling lamp can also be set to dim automatically when the flash fires, or it can be set not to dim.
Beep The Beep Button controls the sound indicator. When enabled the flash head will beep when it is ready to fire again. When enabled, a visual indicator is displayed on the LCD screen.
S1/S2 The S1/S2 Button controls the slave cell. A single press will enable S1, which activates the slave sell so that the flash head will fire whenever it sees another flash. A second press will enable S2, which activates the slave cell so that the flash head will fire when it sees every other flash - this is for use with hotshoe flashguns which use a pre-flash. A third press will disable the slave cell. When enabled a visual indicator is displayed on the LCD screen.
Mode The Mode Button changes the flash head between 3 main modes: Manual(M); Stroboscopic (Multi); and High Speed Sync (HSS). Each mode has a visual indicator which is displayed on the LCD screen.
GR/CH The GR/CH Button adjusts the group and channel of the internal 2.4GHz receiver. A single press will enable you to adjust the Group. A long press will enable you to adjust the Channel.
C.Fn The C.Fn Button allows you to change the function settings of the flash head. A single press will turn the internal 2.4GHz receiver on/off. A long press will take you to the settings menu, where you can change the 4 function settings: Speed/Colour Mode (F1); Timer Function (F2); Mask Function (F3); Modelling Lamp Function (F4).
Set Dial The Set Dial allows you to the change the power of the flash head as well as the settings activated by the buttons shown above. The Set Dial can also be pushed as a button, which acts as a next/ok button.
On/Off Switch The On/Off Switch turn the flash head on/off.

The Modes

Manual Mode Manual Mode allows you to set the flash head's power between 1/1 - 1/128th power in 1/10th stop increments. While in manual mode the t.01 time (flash duration) is also displayed on the LCD panel. Manual mode can be used in conjunction with any of the function settings.
Multi Mode (Stroboscopic)

Multi mode allows you to use the flash head in stroboscopic mode, for when creating images that need multiple images taken very close together on the same frame, as illustrated below . This allows you to set the flash head's power between 1/8th - 1/128th power in 1/3rd stop increments. A single press of the Set Dial allows you to adjust the delay (Hertz) between each flash. A second press of the Set Dial allows you to adjust how many flashes are produced. Multi mode can only be used in conjunction with function settings F2 and F4.

High Speed Sync Mode HSS Mode enabled the use of High Speed Sync, which allows your camera to be set to literally any shutter speed if required, this feature is essential when shooting in bright lighting conditions, e.g. sunlight. HSS allows you to set the flash head's power between 1/1 - 1/16th power in 1/3rd stop increments. While in HSS Mode no other technical data is displayed on the LCD screen. HSS Mode can only be used in conjunction with function settings F3 and F4. In order to use HSS you need our Wavesync 2.4G Mach trigger (available separately). The standard Wavesync Commander 2.4GHz will not allow the use of HSS.

The Function Settings

Speed/Colour Mode (F1) The F1 settings allow you to change between Speed Mode and Colour Consistency Mode. Speed mode produces much shorter flash durations (1/35,086th second). This approximates to the action stopping potential of using a shutter speed outdoors of 1/35,086th second and is more than 4x better at freezing action than nearly any pro DSLR camera. There is some shift in colour temperature as the flash duration changes, and at its lowest power setting the colour temperature cools to 9000K . When used in colour mode, the colour temperature remains constant at around 5600K, but the flash duration is greater, with a minimum flash duration of 1/4,983th second. Typically, 1/3,000th second is enough to freeze nearly all action, so you can use your SuperFast Pro in Colour mode to freeze almost all action, with the option of switching to Speed Mode for those rare subjects (for example splashing liquids) that need even greater speed performance.
Timer Function (F2) The F2 setting allows you set a timer on the flash. The timer can be adjusted between from 0.01 seconds - 30 seconds in 0.01 second increments. This allows you to take long exposure shots with a flash at the end, (known as rear curtain sync). If you want to take a long exposure shot with a flash at the beginning, set the timer to 'OFF'.
Mask Function (F3) The F3 settings allow you to set the mask feature, which provides an alternative and more detailed means of controlling the attributes of the slave cell. The Mask can be set to either 'OFF', 'N1' or 'N2'. If you trigger the flash head twice while Mask is set to N1, the flash head will only fire the first time and not the second. If you trigger the flash head twice while Mask is set to N2, the flash head will only first the second time and not the first.
Modelling Lamp Function (F4) The F4 settings allows you to set the function of the modelling lamp. This can be set to either 'On' or 'Off'. When set to 'Off', the modelling lamp will dim when the flash is fired and then turn back on when the head is ready to fire again. This gives you a visual indication of when the head is ready to fire again. When set to 'On', the modelling lamp will remain on throughout the flash cycle, which can be an advantage in some shooting situations.
