The i-TTL version of Phottix’s high-end Mitros speedlight has been released. Previously only available for Canon, now Nikon users will also be able to benefit from the shoe-mount flashgun, which offers high-speed sync and advanced wireless master control.
“The Mitros will do everything you expect a top-of-the-line TTL flash to do,” says Phottix. “Functions include built-in IR triggering with Master and Slave modes, AF assist light, auto/manual zooming flash head, all with fast recharge times. The Phottix Mitros TTL Flash includes a USB port for firmware upgrades, a 3.5mm sync port and optical slave mode.”
This is a Chinese-made aftermarket flash, but the manufacturer is assuring users that they needn’t feel like they’re taking a big risk by opting for one.Â “Phottix is backing-up both the Mitros for Canon and Nikon models with a two-year warranty,” the company said. “Service centers in the United States, EU and Asia are being finalized.”
Rival products include the Nissin Di866 Mark II, Metz Mecablitz 58 AF-2Â andÂ Nikon Speedlight SB-910.
The product is on its ways to dealers, including Adorama, where you can pre-order one for US$299.99. Other local distributors are listed here. Customers can expect to see the Mitros for Nikon available at the online Phottix Store “by the end of July” for $50 more. For more technical information, visit the manufacturer’s product page.
