Phottix Indra500 TTL Light
From Phottix:
 
U.S. introduction of Indra500 delivers new levels of power and versatility for professional photographers whether on location or in the studio
 
New York, NY (October 28, 2014) – Phottix announces the versatile new Phottix Indra500, a powerful 500 Watt-second Studio Flash designed with essential features that any on-the-go photographer will appreciate. Significant among these features is its built-in TTL Flash Triggering operation designed for use with both Canon and Nikon DSLR cameras, thanks to its award-winning Phottix Odin TTL Flash Trigger technology.
 
The new Indra500 TTL Light also features High Speed Sync up to 1/8000 second and 8 stops of versatile power adjustment from full-power to 1/128 power. Significantly too the flexible Indra500 can be powered by either a Li-ion Battery or an AC Adapter, making this new light perfect for use in the studio or on location.
 
“Having High Speed Sync on a studio light is a game changer for helping photographers control ambient light,” said Phottix CEO Steve Peer. “We’re very happy with the Indra500 TTL because it provides photographers with a lot of power and many control options.”
 
Features:
 
  • 500Ws Studio Light
  • TTL, Manual and Stroboscopic Modes
  • High Speed Sync – 1/8000s shutter speeds
  • Second Curtain Sync
  • Adjust +/- 3 EV
  • Manual Power 1/128 to Full Power in 1/3 Stops
  • Wireless Radio Power Control with Phottix Odin and Mitros+ systems
  • Odin for Canon and Nikon Receivers Built in
  • Phottix Strato II Receiver Built in
  • LED Modeling Light
  • Battery and AC Adapter Powered
  • 400 full-power shots when using 5000 mAh Indra Battery Pack, 2 second recycle times
The Phottix Indra500 TTL was developed for photographers on the move. Developed with input from some of the industries biggest names, the Indra500 TTL packs a lot of punch for its 4 lbs. 10.1 ounces weight.
 
Use TTL to shoot during fast moving events like weddings. Shoot on-location, under harsh sun and control ambient light with high-speed sync. Shoot wide-open with shutter speeds up to 1/8000s. The built-in Phottix Odin Receiver for Canon and Nikon makes the Indra500 TTL easy to control and trigger.
 
The Indra500 TTL offers 8 stops of power adjustment – from full power to 1/128 – perfect for overcoming midday sun or adding just a hint of light when shooting with large apertures. TTL exposures can be adjusted in +/- 3 EV levels.
 
High Speed and Second Curtain Sync
Traditional studio lights have limited shutter speeds to 1/200-1/250s. On location these speeds make balancing ambient light a challenge, having to sacrifice desired depth of field to get proper exposure. With the Phottix Indra500 TTL’s High Speed Sync function photographers can shoot at speeds up to 1/8000s, allowing wider apertures while still being able to control ambient light.
 
The Indra500 TTL’s Second Curtain Sync Functions brings untold functionality to the table. Photographers can’t do that with a traditional studio light. Flash bracketing and flash exposure lock can all be used to help get that perfect shot. With Stroboscopic Mode, the Phottix Indra can be used for special effects and creative images with flash frequency of 1-100HZ and flash count of 1-100 times.
 
Built-in triggering
The Phottix Indra500 TTL has the power and control of the award-winning Phottix Odin TTL Flash Trigger inside. Switch between TTL and Manual modes, adjust EV and manual power levels, use high speed sync and second curtain sync, all from the Phottix Odin TCU or Mitros+ Flash unit. With the Phottix Odin receivers for Canon and Nikon built-in, no extra hardware is needed.
 
Phottix Strato II users can also trigger the Indra500 TTL. With a Strato II receiver built into the Indra, Strato II transmitters can trigger the studio light in manual mode. An optical slave mode is also available. A 3.5mm sync port rounds out the Phottix Indra’s triggering offerings – it’s compatible with most major triggering systems.
 
Battery Pack and AC Adapter
The new Indra series from Phottix offers cutting-edge accessories for both the Indra500 TTL Studio Light and Mitros series flashes, starting with the Indra Battery Pack and AC Adapter. The Indra Battery Pack provides a lot of power in a compact unit. When used with the Indra500 TTL Studio Light it allows photographers to shoot 340 full power shots. Its dual power ports can power two Indra500 TTL Studio Lights simultaneously, perfect for on-location work.
 
The Battery Pack’s LED display provides instant visual feedback on power remaining in the 5000 mAh or 10000 mAh cells. The Battery Pack’s USB charging port allows for easy charging of smart phones or tablets. The Indra Battery Pack can also power hot shoe flashes. With cables compatible for Phottix, Canon, Nikon or Sony flashes, the battery pack offer ultra-fast flash recycle times for small flashes.
 
The Indra AC Adapter can power two Indra500 TTL studio lights in 110 or 220V environments – great for studio use, and provides added functionality for flashes – super-fast recycle times.
 
The Indra AC Adapter can also feed AC power directly into hot shoe flashes for lightning fast recharge times. Battery power is no longer an issue. The perfect accessory for using hot shoe flashes in the studio.
 
The Indra series of products is part of Phottix’s new PhottixPro line-up of products. PhottixPro products will be the company’s most innovative and technologically advanced.
 
The Indra500 TTL Studio Light, Indra Battery Pack and Indra AC Adapter will be available in October 2014. Indra500 TTL Light and Battery Set will be priced at $1295 USD.
 
B&H has the Phottix Indra500 TTL Light available for preorder.

From Nikon:
 
Nikon Corporation is pleased to announce that its flagship digital SLR camera, the Nikon D4S, supports the next-generation, high-speed Ver. 2.0 specification for XQD memory cards.
 
XQD Ver. 2.0 is a next-generation specification for XQD memory cards announced by the CompactFlash Association (CFA) on February 13, 2014. This new specification enables faster read and write rates than does the current XQD specification. The new specification also uses a dual interface, PCIe Gen2 and USB 3.0 format, making it easier to use with computer devices including card readers, and allowing for high-speed transfer of images to a computer.
 
Sony G series XQD memory cards announced on September 12, 2014 will support the XQD Ver. 2.0 specification.
 
Support for the XQD Ver. 2.0 specification by the Nikon D4S enables faster write times, as well as the ability to capture more shots with continuous shooting, when XQD Ver. 2.0 memory cards are used.
 
Though the Nikon D4 does not support this new specification, mutual compatibility between current XQD memory cards and XQD Ver. 2.0 memory cards means that the same level of performance available with current XQD cards is possible when XQD Ver. 2.0 memory cards are used with the D4.
