Phottix already wowed us with the performance of its Mitros+ flash on Canon and Nikon cameras, and now it’s available to Sony bodies as well. Like the flash’s earlier renditions, the Mitros+ comes with a built-in 2.4GHz transceiver inside that can communicate with other Mitros+ flashes as well as Odin and Strato II flash triggers for TTL control.
Like the Canon version we reviewed earlier last year, the Mitros+ can’t communicate with Sony’s own flashes. On top of that it also needs Phottix’s Odin receiver or another flash trigger of some sort. But the shoe is the older Minolta shoe; not the new Multi-interface shoe that has been around since the Sony A99.
As a flashgun itself the Mitros+ covers a flash-zoom range of 24-105mm and features a 360-degree rotating head. The unit can also be set to a full range of manual and automatic modes including high-speed sync and First Curtain Sync for cameras with electronic front curtain shutters such as the Sony A6000 and A7 when used with the right adapter.
The Phottix Mitros+ for Sony is still on its way to stores but it will be available for $449.99. Until then you can gawk at some more technical details after the break and see more images of the flashgun.
