In a bold move Jinbei have enabled the one TR-Q7 transmitter to work with Canon, Nikon, and Fuji, cameras, with full TTL and HSS capability. Simply select your camera brand from the transmitter menu.
Sony Cameras will also be compatible with the multi platform transmitter, though require an additional hotshoe adapter.
The TR-Q7 interface displays 3 Groups at a time, though now provides control for 6 Groups – A / B / C / D / E / F .
For added run time the TR-Q7 are powered by a Lithium-ion battery. And there is a new fast access main control wheel, and individual side Group buttons.
Once again the the TR-Q7 provides built-in Bluetooth capability for smarphone APP control of the flash system.
Interestingly Jinbei have reverted back to a traditional screw lock hotshoe foot, rather than the previous button style quick release system.
Though (and this is only speculation at this point), it appears as though the TR-Q7 could possibly even feature a tilting base. Which would then allow upright positioning of the transmitter, for easy viewing with the camera mounted on a tripod etc.
Jinbei have also released a teaser image of an upcoming HD-2 speedlight.
All we can see is that the HD-2 feature a large LCD display interface, and includes a similar main control wheel to the TR-Q7 transmitter.
Though its highly likely we can expect Lithium-ion power, and very possibly a circular flash head (and magnetic modifiers etc).
PRICE AND AVAILABILITY
The TR-Q7 transmitter will be displayed at the Jinbei stand at Photokina 2018 – Hall 4.2 C-031G.
And quite possibly the HD-2 speedlight as well. Stay tuned for more details on price and availability.
