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.

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.

 

What is broncolor HS

broncolor has just released the new function broncolor HS for use with the new RFS 2.2 transceiver.

broncolor HS function allows you to use flash at any shutter speed, means the flash sync is no more limitation and allows to shoot with open aperture. This professional photography feature is now available for Siros L monolights and Move power packs. For example, for photos taken on location with a wide open aperture (shallow depth of field), it allows you to work with short shutter speeds up to 1/8000 s to underexpose the background and let the flashlight work its magic.

A change of the flash tube is not necessary, neither with Move nor with Siros L. For Siros L units we recommend a software update to version 52.03. This update improves the handing of the HS function and may be downloaded from our website: http://www.bron.ch/sirosfirmwareupdate/

For Move owners, a software update is mandatory and must be done by your specialist aftersales dealership.

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 1/8000 s.

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.
