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. “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.”
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.
