A full featured GN20 flash with radio control, LED lighting, flash head tilting, built-in gel holder

Meet our newest family member!
Following the successfully launched FlashQ wireless flash trigger in 2014. We’re going to take it to the next level, a complete wireless flash unit, called FlashQ System. We hereby introduce our first flash project, FlashQ Q20.

We were inspired by a variety of classic flashes and extracted those essential elements that are desired by the photographers. Combined with the 90° adjustable tilting flash head, built-in gel holder, LED video/modeling light, and engineered with our wireless technology for off-camera flash control, Q20 will give you the most convenient experience in a flash unit. Furthermore we crafted it to be a beautiful piece with compact size, makes it a must-have accessory for every Prosumer or Compact System Cameras.

Off-camera Flash Any Time
Our first idea was something similar to the renowned Metz SCA System; flash main body can be detached from the hot shoe adapter. So, we made FlashQ transmitter function like an adapter! Q20 is just like a typical external flash while being plugged on FlashQ transmitter, and it goes into wireless mode while being detached from the transmitter. There will be more creative possibilities in shooting when off-camera flash gives easy and total control in lighting.

Remote Control Flash Power Ratio
FlashQ transmitter can adjust the flash power ratio on Q20 main body, also wirelessly. A Single-click of the Power button makes one step increment, while a Double-click makes one step decrement. This feature is already coded in every shipped FlashQ transmitter.

Manual Flash Power Control
Q20 puts control back into the photographer, as it allows you set the flash output at each stop from 1/128 (minimum output) to 1/1 (maximum output). 7 steps of flash power ratios can be adjusted by two buttons.

Tiltable Flash Head
For ease of setup bouncing light effects, Q20 flash head can tilt up to 90°, with click-stops at 0°, 45°, 60°, 75°, 90°.

Built-in Color Gel / Filter Holder
Q20 flash head has a built-in gel holder for more versatile shooting options. It facilitates quick installation and removal of colored gels, so you change the light color at any time you want.

LED Video / Modeling Light
LED lighting plays an emerging role in digital photography for close-ups, modeling light or filming. Q20 features an LED light suited for these tasks with 7 output levels, makes it perfect for still or video shootings.


Rectangular Shaped, Able to Stand
Q20 has a rectangular outline with flat sides, which makes it easy to stand or position itself in any orientation. It is especially useful in setting up off-camera lighting.

With Tripod Mount
Furthermore, a built-in female 1/4” receptacle is included, which allows it to be attached on a tripod.

Multiple Flashes Support
Q20 equips with the same FlashQ radio, which features Automatic Clear Channel Selection and Simple Pair-up.

FlashQ System can support up to 8 flashes (Q20 main bodies) simultaneously, provided that those flashes had been paired up with the FlashQ transmitter. This gives the scalability of multiple wireless flashes and makes your photography more creative.

Q20 Technical Specifications:

This morning, SanDisk announced a new 200GB microSD card that arrives in Q2. It will retail for $399.99.

Just one year after introducing their 128GB card, SanDisk found a way to increase storage capacity in a micro SD card by 56%. It’s kind of insane to think that something this small can hold 200GB of storage. The card is capable of transferring up to 1,200 photos in a minute thanks to 90MB/s speeds, hold 20 hours of Full HD video, is rated Class 10 for fast video recording and playback, and is water, temperature, shock, x-ray, and magnet proof.

For the first time ever consumers can hold an unprecedented 20 hours of Full HD video on a fingernail-sized memory card

MOBILE WORLD CONGRESS, BARCELONA, March 1, 2015 – SanDisk Corporation (NASDAQ: SNDK), a global leader in flash storage solutions, today introduced the 200GB* SanDisk Ultra® microSDXC™ UHS-I card, Premium Edition, the world’s highest capacity microSD card for use in mobile devices. In just one year after introducing its record-breaking 128GB SanDisk Ultra microSDXC card, SanDisk has increased storage capacity by 56% within the same fingernail-sized form factor. Keeping up with the demands of today’s mobile users, the new card provides the freedom to capture, save and share photos, videos and other files without worrying about storage limitations.

“Mobile devices are completely changing the game. Seven out of 10 images captured by consumers are now from smartphones and tablets. Consumers view mobile-first devices as their primary means for image capture and sharing, and by 2019 smartphones and tablets will account for nine out of 10 images captured,” said Christopher Chute, Vice President, Worldwide Digital Imaging Practice, IDC. “As the needs of mobile users continue to change, SanDisk is on the forefront of delivering solutions for these demands as is clearly illustrated through their growing portfolio of innovative products, including the new 200GB SanDisk Ultra microSDXC card.”

SanDisk achieved this capacity breakthrough by leveraging the proprietary technology developed last year for the 128GB SanDisk Ultra microSDXC card, and creating a new design and production process that allows for more bits per die.

“We continue to push technology boundaries to deliver record-breaking solutions that transform the way consumers use their mobile devices,” said Dinesh Bahal, vice president, product marketing, SanDisk. “By focusing on achieving new capacity and speed milestones, we are able to deliver trusted mobile memory solutions that give consumers the freedom to never stop capturing, saving, or sharing – with the benefit of fast speeds to transfer it all quickly.”

Ideal for Android™ smartphone and tablet users, this Premium Edition microSD card combines the world’s highest capacity and blazingly fast transfer speed of up to 90MB/s to deliver premium performance. At this transfer speed, consumers can expect to move up to 1,200 photos per minute.

Through SanDisk’s updated Memory Zone app users will have even greater control over their mobile device's memory storage. In the Memory Zone app, users can engage the OptiMem™ app feature which monitors the phone’s memory levels to inform users whenever the internal memory falls below a user-defined threshold. Once this threshold is reached, the OptiMem app feature will automatically transfer some of their old photos and videos to their microSD card, leaving them with more internal memory to continue making memories. The app, available for free download from the Google Play™ store, is compatible with most Android-powered devices and allows users to easily locate, organize, transfer and back up data.

Pricing and Availability
The 200GB SanDisk Ultra microSDXC UHS-I card, Premium Edition, features a ten-year limited warranty and will be available worldwide in Q2 at an MSRP of $399.99.
