The Sony HVL-F46 II is a durable, compact GN46 flash that supports the latest camera technology and communication that only Sony can offer, achieving reliable flash at high continuous shooting speeds with intuitive operation via the camera interface, flexible bounce angle adjustment, and wireless radio control.
Intelligent communication with the latest Alpha bodies
The Alpha Lighting System has evolved in parallel with Alpha camera bodies to give creators optimum illumination in a wide range of applications. A level of integration that is only possible with original Sony products achieves detailed communication with compatible camera cameras for reliable and precise light control.
Stable power output for a wide range of lighting needs
The HVL-F46RM2 is designed and manufactured by Sony, so it can communicate with Alpha cameras to deliver consistent GN46 light output at every flash. The HVL-F46RM2 supports focal lengths from 24mm (15mm with the wide panel) to 105mm.
Flash control linked to camera face detection

With a compatible camera, white balance is automatically adjusted so that the subject’s face is rendered with natural color. The HVL-F46RM works with a compatible camera face detection to provide ideal lighting for the main subject, even in groups.
Innovative overheating prevention
The use of heat resistant materials plus an optimized flash algorithm provides higher resistance to overheating that allows longer flash shooting sessions.
Fast recycle and dependable high-speed continuous flash
Advanced electronics and construction contribute to fast recycle times and allow continuous flash shooting for extended periods of time. A set of four batteries can provide power for more than 320 flashes with 2.0 second recycle time.
Versatile radio wireless communication
Stable wireless radio communication is ensured at distances up to 30 m/98.4 ft. Reliable, error-free communication is achieved even around reflectors and obstacles. Slow sync, rear-curtain sync, and multi flash are supported.
Wireless radio control for up to 15 flash units
Control up to 15 flash and/or receiver units in 5 groups. The HVL-F46RM can communicate with flash units that do not feature wireless radio communication via the optional FA-WRC1M commander and/or FA-WRR1 receiver.
