QMM1 Macro Flash Mount System and TUMAX Twin Flash Set
Permanently attached to the base plate of the QMM1 are two fully articulating arms made from high-quality ultra lightweight flex-conduit. These arms allow flash units to be positioned at almost any angle around the subject for a wide variety of lighting effects. Ball joints supporting the flash units allow for even greater control of the flash position and angle. In addition, there is one 1/4 -20
treaded mount point on either side of the QMM1 to attach other accessories.
Unlike a ring flash that is fixed on the camera lens yielding flat lighting, the QMM1’s ability to move the flash units creates directional light that can add greater depth, definition and attention to macro subjects. This gives the photographer greater control to create the image they want. The QMM1 is designed and assembled in the USA.
DMF880 Macro Controller +Twin Flash System
Tumax, the brand name of a leading flash manufacturer, introduces the DMF880 TTL flash unit with built-in macro controller. This dual-purpose flash unit can act as a medium power TTL flash unit or as the control unit for the DMT twin flash set.
The DMF880 is compact but has a guide number of 104 (in feet). It’s flash head can tilt up 90° for bounce flash applications. The flash head also has a manual zoom head to match the angle of coverage and extend the flash range when used with standard and moderate telephoto lenses.
The DMF880 has a switch that turns the macro control function on and off. In the off position, this switch will also cut power to the DMT twin flash units.
The DMT twin flash units each have a guide number of 19.7 (in feet). Their permanently attached syncro-power cord plugs into the DMF880 flash/macro controller to power the flash units. These flash units are very light because they do not use batteries.
The DMT flash heads can tilt up 90° for even more creative lighting options.
The DMF880 TTL flash/macro controller + DMT twin flash are available as a setfor Canon E-TTL, Nikon i-TTL, Olympus TTL, Pentax P-TTL, Sony ADI.
