Phottix has officially announced that the Strato TTL Flash Trigger is now available for Nikon DSLR camera owners, after launching it for Canon users earlier this year.
Third-party accessory manufacturers are making the lives of photographers a lot easier. They are releasing a lot of ingenious products and Phottix is certainly a company that fits the description.
After launching a Strato TTL Flash Trigger for Canon cameras in fall 2013, the company is back with the sought-after Nikon version. The new unit is similar to the Canon version, as it allows photographers to trigger external flashes via wireless technology.
Phottix unveils Nikon model of the Strato TTL Flash Trigger
The new Phottix Strato TTL Flash Trigger for Nikon DSLRs features high-speed syncronization support, as well as second curtain syncronization. It gives photographers the possibility to fire the camera at shutter speeds of up to 1/8000th of a second, among others.
This accessory comes with a 4-channel 2.4GHz transmitter that is sure to do its job in all conditions. Beside wireless triggering, it comes with a wired connection for users who feel that it is safer this way.
Phottix Strato TTL Flash Trigger comes with 100-meter range for Nikon DSLRs
Phottix has revealed that it comes with several buttons that help users set the channel, mode, and the EV – all of which are displayed on an LCD.
The maximum range of the flash trigger stands at 100 meters, which should be enough as you would not want to set your gear too far away from you.
Nikon owners will be happy to hear that the Strato TTL Flash Trigger is compatible with other flash triggers manufactured by Phottix. This means that they do not have to throw the older versions away.
Flash transmitter and receiver now available for under $150
The microUSB port is also available in the Nikon version. Just like with the Canon model, users will be able to install future firmware updates. For what purpose? Well, Phottix did not say, but it is very likely that these triggers are getting more features soon.
For now, the Phottix Strato TTL Flash Trigger for Nikon DSLRs is available for $145 at the company’s official store. Retailers will certainly get this in stock soon, just like they have done with the Canon model, which costs $119.95 at Amazon.
