ORLIT TR-Q6

 

The release of the TR-Q6 transmitter also brings smartphone APP remote control to the Orlit and Jinbei flash systems.

The Orlit APP for iOS is available now (also Jinbei APP for iOS), and the Android APPs should also be available soon.

The TR-Q6 transmitter connects to the smartphone via Bluetooth, providing around 10 meters of range between them, and then conveys the settings on to the slave strobes with a range of up to 300 meters.

Most of the strobes functions can then be controlled remotely through the smartphone interface.

    They also have the same deal for the Nikon package, But for some reason the Canon version is $150 more?

      Hi Steve,

      I could be wrong, though it looks like the difference is simply that the Sony and Nikon transmitters are already available.

      So I would imagine Adorama don’t want to lower the price on the Canon version until they have stock available for those as well. I saw one person already complaining having ordered the Canon strobe his TR-Q6 transmitter is on back-order.

        Oh im not complaining and I’m sure they will do the same when they release the Canon version i was simply saying that if anyone is wanting the 610 strobe to either get the Nikon or Sony version at this great price

      Yes its certainly an interesting shape and design.

      It will be interesting to see how the black LCD goes in bright light though. And also there is still no AF assist light provided unfortunately.

      Otherwise early reports appear to be they work much better and more consistent than the TR-611 / TR-612 transmitters.

    ORLIT TR-Q6 TTL 2.4Ghz Studio Flash Trigger – Sony just like FlashPoint has a firmware bug for TTL at least with ORLIT RoveLight RT 610 HSS TTL Battery-Powered Monolight … easy to detect, take a shot @ f4.0 then @ f5.6 and compare exposure…

    Adorama really has a lot of guts to repeat selling defective products after they can’t get Godox to fix TTL transmitter for Sony for 9+ month

      deejjjaaaa, thanks for the information. Though I’m thoroughly tired of your attitude.

      You’re still oblivious to the fact that they way you approached your complaints has likely added to the delay in having it fixed, it certainly hasn’t helped.

      If you can’t drop the attitude I’ll be blocking you from this site at least.

    > Though I’m thoroughly tired of your attitude.

    And you are not tired of Adorama’s attitude selling defective products w/o properly warning customers that TTL for Sony is not properly working in this products, ___for all Sony cameras__ ? so – you are as a blog owner – are you standing with Adorama (Godox, Jinbei) here or with your readers here (whom I think you owe to warn prominently about those bugs) ? why don’t you do a simple posting on your web site with the description of this long on going situation – that will go long way to push the manufacturer to fix this…

    Don’t like the ergonomic of the transmitter. If it’s as intuitive as Nissin Air10s or Phottix Odin II or the new Flashpoint Xpro, the combo with Jinbei HD610 will be the most popular and efficient on the market.
