I review the newly (well actually, not yet) released Phottix Atlas and give it a head-to-head with the PocketWizard Plus II. This post will be about the my introduction to the Atlas and how I came to acquire it. The second post will be about the features and direct comparison of the Atlas to it’s direct competitor, the PocketWizard Plus II. This post will also contain a quick short range wireless trigger test. I hope to then conclude with part three (coming soon) with a long range test and a few other closing remarks.
- Post 1/3 – Introduction to the Phottix Atlas
- Post 2/3 – Product Showcase & Short Range Testing
- Post 3/3 – Long Range Testing
The review has revealed an exciting new feature of the Atlas:
Trigger frequency is compatible with PocketWizard’s MiniTT1, FlexTT5, MultiMax, Plus II (& probably the original/old PocketWizards) for both sending and receiving.
UPDATE: This is because the frequency has been changed from 2.4GHz to 433MHz.
UPDATE II: Long range testing now published.
