Phottix has announced the new Mitros+ TTL Transceiver Flash, a flash gun which also comes packed with built-in radio TTL capability.
The Phottix Mitros is one of the best flashes on the market, especially when taking into consideration its price. Although some users have experienced battery issues with the flash gun, the Mitros remains a powerful tool for professional photographers.
Phottix launches Mitros+ with integrated radio trigger
The manufacturer has decided to launch a new version of the accessory. It is called Mitros+ and it comes packed with an important solution to a major shortcoming. The product now features radio TTL capability, meaning that photographers can user radio transmission in order to trigger it.
Phottix’ original Mitros did not have such feature. This means that users have had to rely on infrared technology to make it shine. Now that the Mitros+ TTL Transceiver Flash is here, users can stop using IR and switch to a more agreeable radio transmission.
Mitros+ TTL Transceiver Flash works with Nikon and Canon DSLR cameras
Phottix has revealed that the flash gun will be compatible with both Nikon and Canon DSLRs. It will provide a guide number of 58, while also packing an autofocus assist light.
The flash zoom extends on a focal length range of 24-105mm and a quick flash mode is also there. The specs list continues with support for manual, multi-stroboscopic, and ETTL I/II modes, 3.5mm sync and external battery ports.
The manufacturer notes that the Mitros+ TTL Transceiver Flash is compatible with master or slave IR triggering, while being able to serve as an optical slave.
Phottix Odin can be used for convenient TTL triggering with the Mitros+
As stated above, one of its most important features is the built-in Odin Transmitter and Receiver. This system will allow an Odin transmitter to manage the Mitros+ with TTL triggering support. However, the less-popular Stratos receiver is also compatible with the flash gun.
Phottix has confirmed that the new accessory supports high-speed syncronization as well as second-curtain syncronization, so photographers will not have to worry about anything when using this “all-in-one” product. The company will release the product in the near future for an unknown price.
The Canon 600 EX-RT Speedlite flash, which provides similar functionality, is available for $549 at Amazon therefore the Mitros+ will certainly be less expensive than that.
The same retailer is selling the original Phottix Mitros TTL flash for $299.95. However, if you want radio triggering, you will wait for the Mitros+ to become available.
