Phase One Announces V-Grip Air with Wireless Flash Sync

Phase One V-Grip Air with Wireless Flash Sync

Phase One has announced its first vertical grip with built-in wireless flash sync for use with Phase One, Mamiya and Profoto medium format digital camera systems. The new V-Grip Air, as it is called, is a product of collaboration among the three companies.

The new V-Grip Air delivers sync speeds as fast as 1/1600 sec. Phase One said the new V-Grip offers owners of Phase One and Mamiya 645DF cameras more shooting styles, and delivers longer camera battery life through power integration and easy firmware upgrades.

Built-in flash technology from Profoto allows photographers to trigger a flash wirelessly from the V-grip Air. The wireless flash triggering system works with all current and most modern Profoto flash systems. It is also possible to leverage the wireless flash triggering with other flash brands by using an optional receiver unit from Profoto.

The V-Grip Air unit features all the same camera controls and functionality as on the 645DF camera. An integrated L-bracket is available for portrait-mode mounting on a stand. The unit runs on the same type of battery used in Phase One and Leaf digital backs with a backup option to use standard AA type batteries.

The Phase One/Mamiya V-Grip Air for Phase One and Mamiya 645DF camera systems is priced at $1290. An L-bracket/handstrap standalone package is $299.
