A while back, we tested the Interfit S1 and found it to be a pretty good alternative to Phottix and Profoto though not as good as the Flashpoint option in some ways. Today, the company announced that the Interfit S1 is now available to work with Sony cameras that boast the multi-interface shoe. This boosts the options that Sony strobists now have by quite a bit overall.
These lights offer TTL, HSS, wireless flash control via a radio transmitter, have a pretty great build quality, and are overall quite solid. Some of the reliability issues have been fixed from what I’ve been told and so it’s shaping up to become an even better monolight overall. Yet at the same time though, it’s tough to beat the Flashpoint Xplor600’s price point. However, Interfit’s light modifiers are some of the best bang for your buck options out there: like with their parabolic umbrellas.
More specs are after the jump.
