Phottix has announced the immediate availability of its Mitros+ TTL Transceiver Flash for Nikon DSLR cameras, several months after the launch of the Canon version.
One of the most popular third-party accessory makers is Phottix. The company is manufacturing a lot of products for digital cameras, including flash guns. The best part about it is that these lighting solutions come packed with interesting features, a good build quality, and decent prices, which is the dream combination for all photographers.
At the beginning of the fall 2013, Phottix has launched a Mitros+ TTL Transceiver Flash for Canon DSLRs. The company has promised that it will deliver a version for Nikon cameras in the near future. Unfortunately, this promise has been somewhat broken as more than four months have passed since the initial announcement.
Phottix introduces Mitros+ TTL Transceiver Flash for Nikon DSLR cameras
Either way, the Nikon version of the Phottix Mitros+ is finally available for those who own a DX or FX-format camera.
It is a flash that can be mounted on the hot shoe of a DSLR and it is made out of durable materials. Its specs list includes a way to use the flash as a controller and trigger for another flash wirelessly.
It comes with a radio transceiver, so that photographers can control other flash guns via radio. This makes it the perfect fill light accessory, though it can also be used as a primary light source.
Still, professional photographers will certainly appreciate the fact that it can control as well as trigger several Mitros+ flashes at the same time.
Phottix Mitros+ offers a 17-105mm zoom and it is available right now
If you do not own a Mitros+ flash, then you should not worry, as this model is compatible with Phottix Odin Receivers. This means that you can control other flash guns that support Odin Receivers, as the Mitros+ features built-in the Odin transceiver technology.
Add this to the Strato II Receiver, and AF assist light, optical slave support, FP and second curtain syncing, and a 3.5mm sync port among others.
The new flash gun has a Guide Number of 58, which should be enough for most users. The zoom range stands between 17mm and 105mm and the flash recycling time does not go over five seconds no matter what, although the minimum recycling time does not go below 0.1 seconds.
Mitros+ can be purchased right now for a price of $449.99 at the company’s official store
