The Interfit S1 Monolight Offers TTL with Canon and Nikon DSLRs

ints1-8

It looks like the world of monolights are getting some new competition when it comes to TTL metering transmission. Profoto was the first to the pot, then Phottix and now Interfit with their new S1. The Interfit S1 is a 500ws monolight that they’re stating does both TTL transmission and HSS (high speed sync) with Canon and Nikon DSLRs.

The Interfit S1 can work function by either using a battery pack or AC power connectors, and the company claims that their 4500mAh Li-Ion battery provides up to 350 full power flashes in Manual and TTL modes and over 400 full power flashes in High Speed Sync mode. Said battery seems to be incorporated into the body of the monolight in the same way that Profoto does with their B1.

The Interfit S1 has a 7 stop power range and these can be dialed up/down in 1/10ths of a stop. When shooting in HSS, the TTL transmission can be dialed in in up to 1/3rd stops. This light also offers a very fast flash duration at 1/19,000th at minimum power and 1/1,000 at full power.

More tech specs and images are after the jump, and when the Interfit S1 launches in early December, the package will retail for $999.
