With Profoto previously coming out their TTL B1 monolights, it was only a matter of time before another manufacturer released their own. With Phottix coming out with their line of Odin TTL transmitters and receivers, it makes complete sense that at Photokina 2014 the company is announcing a brand new TTL monolight. The new Indra 500 will work with Odin transmitters–the same ones that trigger the company’s Mitros+ flashes.
The Indra 500 TTL has TTL operation for both Canon and Nikon systems when using the Odin receiver. Additionally, the light can do high speed sync and is powered by a Li-Ion battery or AC adapter–which is great for location work.
This light was years in development, And the result is eight stops of power adjustment and when working with TTL transmission you can use +/-3 EV settings.
No word on pricing yet, but be sure that we’re super excited about what’s capable with this light. More tech specs and images are after the jump.
