Powerful, reliable and affordable Mitros and Mitros+ Electronic Flash units now available for use with newer Sony cameras, which use the Sony multi-interface hotshoe.
Phottix announces the worldwide introduction of two new Mitros TTL Flash units for use with the proprietary Sony multi-interface hotshoe. Following more than three years in development, the two new Phottix flash units not only fit the multi-interface hotshoe found on newer Sony cameras but electronics in the flash units readily communicate with the cameras’ own expanded capabilities to operate as one smooth system. The new Phottix Mitros is now available for $299 (USD) and the Mitros+ is also now available for $399 (USD).
Both Mitros models share many significant features including a guide number of 58, full TTL functionality as well as manual and multi modes, Auto/Manual Flash Head Zoom with 180 degree rotation and 97 degree tilt, High Speed Sync and Rear Curtain Sync, Manual and bracketed Flash Exposure Compensation, and a Quick Flash Mode: with 0.1-2.5 second recharge times and much more including a USB port for future firmware upgrades and a 3.5mm sync port.
The Phottix Mitros+ adds significant functionality, allowing photographers to not only use the Mitros on or off camera for lighting, but to also control and trigger remote flash by radio signal. The Mitros+ is an industry landmark and was developed with input from wedding and event photographers.
“The introduction of these new Sony-mount flash units recognizes the popularity enjoyed by Sony with digital cameras, not just in the United States but across the world,” said Phottix CEO Steve Peer. “Sony continues to produce innovative solutions for photographers and with the introduction of these new flashes, Phottix is underscoring its commitment to supporting Sony users as well.”
Photographers can use the versatile Mitros+ on-camera as a key- or fill-light, as well as control and trigger other Mitros+ flashes or compatible flashes using Phottix Odin Receivers. The Mitros+ also offers a built-in Phottix Odin Receiver and Strato II Receiver. Existing Phottix triggers, like the Phottix Odin or Strato II can be used to trigger the Mitros+ without extra receivers.
