Hähnel Tuff TTL, Viper can now trigger studio flashes

Hähnel wireless TTL triggering systems will be able to synchronise with studio flashes via cable as well as speedlights.

Hähnel Tuff TTL & Viper Studio Light Cable

In our recent review, we said that the Hähnel Tuff TTL cannot trigger studio lights since there is no sync port on the Tuff receivers to connect them. There is, however, a mini-USB port for firmware updates and external power.

Now the company have announced a mini-USB to 3.5mm cable for the Tuff TTL and Viper receivers. A 3.5mm to 6.35mm adapter is included with it. Since the mini-USB port will be occupied, you won’t be able to power your receiver from the mains and link it to a studio flash at the same time.

The cable costs £9.99, available for pre-order from Amazon.
