The company IndieGoGo is currently conducting a project named FlashQ which aims at producing wireless flash triggers which would be small in size, but sophisticated and eye-catching. Therefore, the FlashQ is 2.4GHz system which features a wireless trigger and a receiver whose function is to mount a camera's hotshoe and a flash's hotshoe adapter. This compact device is designed for owners of mirrorless cameras and other small camera bodies.
The FlashQ exhibits two buttons and one tricolor LED which are intended to control its functionality. The property that distinguishes this system is the fact that it can pair up to eight receivers at a time by means of automatic channel selection, which enables multiple flash selections. What is more, the device can trigger a flash or even a strobe pack over PC connector thanks to an output connector.
The FlashQ uses radio spectrum instead of infrared light (which has become the standard with a number of wireless flash systems worldwide), which results in devices not requiring the line-of-sight to trigger properly. Despite many of its advantages, the FlashQ is bound to have some weakness, albeit not major: it does not support the TTL functionality and the sync speed is limited to 1/250 seconds.
If one wishes to purchase one transmitter and one receiver with a choice of color, the price is $39. For one transmitter and two receivers, it is necessary to prepare $55, whereas for $125 the company will make an additional step and inscribe the device with the customer's signature.
