In fast-paced shoots, let your Raven and camera act as your lighting assistant with TTL flash control. Simply pair your Raven to a TTL compatible light or PocketWizard FlexTT and let them do the rest. By default, the Raven will listen to your camera's request for optimal exposure and communicate with your lights. To fine-tune the exposure, rotate the ring dial on the Raven. The Raven TTL mode can be activated on individual zones or multiple zones of your choosing. Keep lighting easy so you can focus on your event.
PowerTrack is a hybrid flash control mode that automatically adjusts your flash based on your current aperture, ISO, or combination of aperture and ISO.
Adjust the exposure setpoint (displayed with a blue arrow) by rotating the ring dial and let the Raven control the rest. This mode is perfect for studio photography where identical exposure is needed, but the camera settings change shot to shot. Adjust your depth of field without needing to adjust your lights: Raven makes it just right.
Optimize your high speed flash photography and move beyond HSS. A built-in light meter captures flash profile and reveals timing in relation to the opening and closing of the shutter curtains.
With the push of a button, the SyncView screen displays a never-before-seen representation of flash intensity over the length of the shutter cycle. To adjust flash timing, simply rotate the ring dial to optimize timing of your flash. This feature is invaluable for shooting above X-Sync in bright conditions. Win the game when battling the sun, make sure to send us your trophy pictures.
SyncView also enhances Rear Curtain Sync enabling you to portray motion in a still image. Optimize the effect using SyncView to delay flash timing. Unique to the Raven is the ability to minimize streaking after the pop with intuitive adjustment in the SyncView screen.
Achieve a shallow depth of field on the brightest of days. High-Speed Sync (HSS) and Focal-Plane (FP) are features available on many cameras and flashes. The Raven enables shutter sync speeds above 1/250th of a second (up to 1/8000s) and optimally exposes your subject relative to the background.
In addition to working with HSS/FP compatible flashes, the SyncView mode in the Raven is capable of delaying the timing of the light pulse of non-HSS/FP compatible flashes. This enables faster than X-SYNC on many flash models.
HSS is used to photograph above your camera’s native flash sync speed, particularly when in aperture priority mode. It’s a valuable tool in outdoor environments, sports, and wildlife photography with high shutter speeds and wide aperture settings. When paired with a compatible camera and flash, the Raven will automatically activate HSS above 1/250s. The Raven with HSS will help you create arresting and unique imagery that will leave people wondering how you did it without restrictions on what shutter speed or aperture you can use.
Formerly an intense manual process, MultiPop on the Raven is now an intelligent approach to triggering multiple flash pops in a single frame. Set the number of pops (from 2 to 60) you’d like for a zone and the Raven will automatically compute and send a sequence of triggers to flashes based on your shutter speed. Flash recycle time will limit the upper end of the shutter speed possible, and we generally recommend less than 1/100s.
SpeedCycle brings sequential flash triggering to the tip of your fingers. For each frame taken, the Raven will pop through one of the enabled SpeedCycle zones. If there’s a 3 second pause in shooting, the sequence will reset to the lowest zone. This is invaluable for composite photography where alternating between zones is necessary, and for sports photography when the action repeatedly moves through your field of view (such as in cycling). It’s one of our most unique features and we can’t wait to see what you do with it.
