Rollei 58 Flash Unit
A powerful and highly flexible flash with a tilt reflector is an essential part of the camera kit for both pro photographers and ambitious amateurs alike, who’ll be looking for a flash unit that covers as many shooting scenarios as possible. The Rollei 58 Flash Unit not only offers a high guide number of 58 (ISO 100, 180 mm) but comes as standard with a “dual mode” that allows it to be used with both Canon and Nikon camera systems without needing any further configuration. Direct support for manufacturers’ standard TTL flash modes plus four slave channels and three slave groups ensure flash setup remains straightforward and easily coordinated even for more complex shoots.
Fully-featured, with LED continuous light and high-capacity battery
The extensive range of accessories includes a lithium-ion battery and charger, a stable flash stand for master/slave shooting, an on-flash diffuser to produce soft, natural light, and a heavy-duty protective bag. To ensure your flash unit is always ready to go even during lengthier photography assignments, you can swap out the rechargeable battery included and simply use 4 standard AA batteries instead. Since the rechargeable battery is also available separately, you can also take multiple units along for the ride. The Rollei 58 Flash Unit can also be used as a continuous light source, and the 3W LED lamp is also a great help when you need to work out where the shadows will fall in a flash session.
Your trusty companion for studio and indoor shootings
Outstanding master/slave capabilities mean the Rollei 58 Flash Unit is the perfect choice both for complex studio lighting setups and for dynamic indoor shoots such as weddings, reportage or photography with children. Rapid response and recharging times, the large lighting area offered by the vertically and horizontally tiltable reflector plus pro functions such as stroboscopic mode or flash bracketing guarantee this all-rounder a permanent place in the photography professional’s go-to camera kit. Thanks to its Canon and Nikon compatibility, the Rollei 58 Flash Unit is also one of the few pieces of equipment that stays relevant after a camera system changeover.
