Portable Flash and Lighting

Words by Emma Kay

Hahnel have released a wireless detachable flash trigger that's designed to be used with Canon cameras.


Tuff flash trigger



Called the Tuff TTL, the detachable flash trigger is strong, durable and ideal for both amateur and pro photographers.


It features a strong ISM 2.4 Ghz wireless transmission, which ensures a dependable triggering of the flash up to 200 meters away from it.


Both the transmitter and receiver have silicone rubber casings, protecting them against bumps and damage. The system requires 4 AA batteries.


It is priced at £100. Contact Hahnel for stockist information.

Yep, sounds good and tough with that silicon rubber case.

Nothing on the website about using it to trigger 2 flashguns with 2 receivers.
Or whether the mini USB port allows triggering of other lights through a PC adapter etc.

Looks good but only for one off camera flash at the moment - maybe more documentation will follow.
Nothing about flash wake up modes either - could be needed if the flash is really 200M away.

Agree; it looks promising but we will have to wait for more detail.

I have been in touch with Hahnel for you and they have said the following:

The flashgun will not go into sleep mode when using the Tuff TTL. This is to ensure reliable transmission of the camera and remote flashgun.
At present only one flashgun can be used with the Tuff TTL. More information on this will follow.
The mini USB socket on the Tuff TTL is to allow software upgrades.
