The Phottix Mitros TTL Flash for Canon is now making its way to retailers in select countries. Being officially released at WPPI 2013 in Las Vegas, the Mitros is now available in the United States, United Arab Emirates, Indonesia and the Philippines.
Midwest Photo Exchange, Samy’s Camera, Silvio’s PhotoWorks, Southeastern Camera & Supply at the WPPI Expo will be selling the Phottix Mitros with Adorama and Arlington Camera taking orders for the flash.
The Mitros will be released in Russia, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Spain later in March with international availability in April.
The Mitros will do everything you expect a top-of-the-line TTL flash to do. Announced at Photokina 2012, Phottix Mitros 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 and a 3.5mm Sync port.
Photographer and Blogger Extraordinaire David Hobby was excited at the announcement of the Phottix Mitros last year. The 3.5mm sync port, in his opinion (and our’s) is a much better port than the standard PC (Prontor/Compur) connection.
The Phottix Mitros is powerful, with a guide number of 58 and features high quality components – custom designed by Phottix or imported from America, Japan or Taiwan. The flash features full TTL functionality as well as manual and multi modes. It is the perfect compliment to the Phottix Odin TTL Flash Trigger system as well as fully compatible as a master or slave with Canon’s native IR (no, not radio) system. The Mitros also features an optical slave mode.
Now Available: United States, United Arab Emirates, Indonesia and the Philippines
Use it on camera for shooting events or weddings, or off-camera with a Phottix flash trigger, light stand and umbrella or softbox for portraits or product photography. This is a professional-level flash – at home on-location or in the studio.
A Nikon-compatible version of the Mitros TTL Flash is slated for release in May 2013, with a Sony version to follow in Q3.
