High-Speed Sync with Backscatter MF-2!
'And what about the High-Speed Sync?...'
This is a common question among underwater photographers. who use different underwater strobes and of course different triggers. It's important to know which setup is capable of this feature.
Until now there was only one strobe that worked in High-Speed Sync (HSS) in Manual mode. That was the Retra Pro and we offer triggers for a while which have an HSS feature: the TURTLEs for Nikon, Sony, Olympus, and Canon are all capable of that.
We know well the Backscatter Mini Flash 1 (MF-1) which is our favorite strobe for underwater macro photography with its optical snoot. It's small, easy to use, and of course, our triggers work with it in Manual mode.
The only feature we missed in the MF-1 is the High-Speed Sync.
But recently the manufacturer, Backscatter announced the new MF-2 version of this popular macro flash that has this feature.
We felt we needed to get one as soon as possible. We recently tested the MF-2 with the new s-TURTLE 2 SMART and the i-TURTLE 2 SMART versions and the Backscatter MF will be added to the software soon, and you can control it with your TURTLE trigger.
Certainly, we will upgrade all the Smart software, so all customers who have the original SMART trigger can use this strobe.
