Photographic accessory manufacturer Phottix have released two new items of speedlight grip equipment. The P200 light stand is a compact reflex light stand not unlike a Manfrotto Nano, while the PhottixÂ Varos is a “rugged” umbrella adapter designed for use with hotshoe flashes.
Phottix is proud to add two new products to its line-up of studio gear.
The Phottix P200 Light Stand is super compact â€“ 50 cm when folded. This is a great light stand for photographers â€œon the go.â€ It extends to an amazing 200 cm, and is perfect for light-weight hot shoe flash and strobe set-ups. The P200 has the standard 3/8â€³ threaded mount. Tired of lugging around big light stands? The Phottix P200 is what youâ€™ve been waiting for. The Phottix P200 is great for on-location work. You no longer need an assistant to carry your gear.
The Phottix P200 is sturdy. It was tested with a 400W studio strobe and a 1m Octagon softbox. It worked like a charm.
The Phottix Varos Umbrella Holder is now available. The heavy-duty Varos is a great compliment to the P200 or other Phottix light stands. The Varos features a reversible 1/4â€ and 3/8â€ adapter â€“ perfect for attaching a Phottix Atlas Professional Flash Trigger. A removable cold shoe mount is also included. The bottom of the Phottix Varos offers a standard 5/8â€ connection, as well as a 1/4â€ threaded insert. This umbrella holder was designed by professional photographers and is ready to take rugged on-location abuse.
Where to buy
The Varos umbrella bracket and P200 light stand are available to buy online from the Phottix Store, for around US$24 and $59 respectively. Check also with your local Phottix distributor.
