QUANTUM UNVEILS MOST EXTENSIVE
NEW PRODUCT ROLLOUT IN COMPANY HISTORY!
PhotoPlus Expo 2006 - Quantum Instruments Inc. is introducing three major new products, as well as numerous new accessories and upgrades. This marks the largest one-time line expansion in our company’s history and reinforces our role as an essential supplier of professional photographic instruments:
NEW Qnexus - When mounted to Quantum’s new-generation Qflash 5d-R flash units, this ingenious receiver/decoder "reads" wireless TTL signals directly from Canon and Nikon shoe mount master flashes. It integrates multiple high-power Qflash 5d-R’s into Canon or Nikon wireless TTL systems where they act as dedicated, full-function remotes controlled totally from the camera’s flash menu. Qnexus supports all Canon and Nikon wireless flash functions including Manual, Automatic, TTL and TTL-Ratio.
Turbo SC - See the QNexus page for more details
A Qnexus equipped Qflash 5d-R produces 150 to 400 watt-seconds of beautiful studio-quality lighting (models QFT5d-R and QFX5d-R respectively). Qnexus greatly expands creative options for portrait and event photography. For example, photographers can make a great portable portrait set-up by using a Qflash in a softbox or with an umbrella, as the main light source, and use their Canon or Nikon flash for fill. Or, for those tricky, large group photos, they can use any combination of Qflashes with camera manufacturer’s flashes as remotes, all controlled by a Nikon or Canon wireless controller. Qnexus/Qflash adds both power and versatility to the system.
Qnexus features a multi-function LED that indicates it is programmed for either Nikon or Canon wireless flash commands. Qnexus also indicates when the unit receives a command from the on-camera master flash or controller. A channel dial corresponds to the channel settings for Nikon or Canon systems. In addition, "Group" settings can be utilized to control multiple Qflashes with TTL ratios, or combine them in one group for extraordinary wireless flash power.
NEW Qflash 5d-R - ("d" for digital and "R" for Ratio)- is the latest evolution in Quantum’s proven Qflash portable flash line. The new 5d-R series used with Quantum’s FreeXwire digital radio system, now support wireless control of all dedicated camera-flash functions - Manual, TTL, Auto, Auto-fill and TTL-Ratio - up to 500 ft. away!

Qflash 5d-R units blend seamlessly with Canon, Nikon and other popular, professional, digital camera systems using Quantum’s proprietary QTTL adapters. In some situations, Qflash even provides capabilities a camera system may not support- such as wireless remote Fill-Flash. Exposure ratios for local and remote Qflashes can also be set from an on-camera Qflash 5d-R, even if the camera system does not support TTL-Ratio.
Combined, the Qflash 5d-R and FreeXwire systems open up an exciting new world of wireless- creative freedom, where even the most complex lighting set-ups can be accomplished quickly, easily and reliably.
The new 5d-R series includes two models: the Qflash T5d-R powered by Quantum Turbo-series batteries, and the Qflash X5d-R powered by Quantum’s Qpaq-X battery system. The T5d-R provides up to 150 watt-seconds of beautiful, studio quality lighting (vs. 50 watt-seconds for shoe mount flashes) while the X5d-R units deliver up to 400 watt-seconds each.
NEW Turbo Slim Compact - A new, ultra-lightweight, ultra-slim, ultra-compact addition to Quantum’s popular Turbo battery line. The new Turbo SC ("S" for Slim and "C" for Compact) provides typical all-day flash shooting capacity like the standard Turbo, yet weighs less than a pound and fits easily in a shirt pocket! "It’s so small, light and easy-to-carry" ...said one photographer who tried it... "that I completely forgot it was there!"
Turbo SC - See the Turbo page for more details.
State-of-the-art NiMH batteries power the Turbo SC for lightning-fast recycling times and high capacity. Despite its mini proportions, it provides up to 225 full-power flashes with Quantum’s Qflash units, or 400 shoe mount flashes, on a single 1.5-hour charge. And, like all Quantum batteries, the new Turbo SC features a computerized "fuel gauge" that clearly displays the amount of power remaining and monitors charging progress.
The Turbo SC is compatible with all Quantum "C" and "CC-Series" flash cables. It includes a removable belt clip and a 100 - 240 volt charger. When the unit is registered, Quantum will send the customer a free leather shoulder strap.
QF69 Mini Folding Softbox
NEW Accessories - To help maximize the performance of the Qflash line, Quantum has introduced a new Mini Folding Softbox (QF69) with hotspot reducer. It is ideal for close-up work where a perfectly smooth, soft, diffused look is a must. The QF69 does not obstruct Qflash sensors and can be used with all Qflash series, in all modes. It folds flat and comes with a handy pouch for easy storage/transport.
FW25 under camera mount for FW9T
ALSO NEW --- Quantum has designed a handy, new FreeXwire Bracket (FW25) that conveniently mounts the FW9T Transmitter to the bottom of the camera.
NEW Upgrade - Consistent with our dedication to "planned non-obsolescence", we are offering a new upgrade Model QF3d-R that gives owners of older Qflash 2 units many advantages of the new Qflash 5d-R series. Highlights include: full digital and film camera dedication using QTTL "D" adapters; wired/wireless TTL-Ratio and Auto-fill for remote Qflashes using FreeXwire; Sensor Limit and over/under exposure indication for Auto and Auto-fill modes.
We are dedicated to providing photographers with the finest quality products, proudly designed and manufactured in the USA.
