Sony develops wireless lighting control system

Summer is when Sony promises to make available a new wireless lighting control system for pros using Sony cameras.

Designed for compatibility with alpha interchangeable lens cameras and external flash units, the lighting system will include the FA-WRC1M wireless radio commander as well as the FA-WRR1 wireless radio receiver.

With a maximum range of 30m (approx. 98 feet), the new radio controlled system will control a maximum of 15 separate flash units in up to 5 groups of flashes. While using the system, photographers have the ability to control the exposure of connected flash units either manually or automatically.  The new lighting control system also will be capable of flash sync speeds of up to 1/250th of a second with high speed sync (HSS) available as well.

A prototype of the system has been shown, but there’s no word on pricing yet.
