question

Will the Indra 500 handle a 7' Octo safely? This is a concern for me with its plastic/composite body and Bowens mount.
Asked by: Paul
It hasn't been tried, but a 7 foot (84 inch) softbox may be too much for the Indra. The largest Phottix brand octa box is only 59 inches. and going out to 84 makes much larger and heavier proportionally.

question

Any idea on how to set the Indra to support 1/15,000 flash duration? Thank you.
Asked by: Arnel D.
The shortest duration (1/15,000) can only come at the lowest (1/128) power level. As power level increases, so will flash duration, all the way to the longest duration (1/250) at full power.

What transmitter will run the indra? I have the transmitter that came with the Mitros plus kelby set from B&H. And i cant seem to get the transmitter to adjust the power on the indra.

Phottix Odin 2. The new Indra 500 uses Canon transmitter so no radio receivers are needed on 600 ex rt

question

does this work with a fujifilm xt1?
Asked by: Mike V.
Not to its full capacity. Phottix does not make a dedicated Transmitter for Fuji. So no TTL Radio Remote power control, High speed flash sync all of which the Indra is capable of. You could use the Phottix Strato II or its new trigger with the Indra set for Strato II receive. This would give you wireless radio triggering with channels and groups. Very nice light.

question

Is anyone else having overheating issues with their Indra 500? I'm not using HSS but it's still overheating allot. Does the AC adapter help with this?
Asked by: Gary B.
If the flash is overheating a lot when in normal mode you need to contact direct B&H customer service. If you are shooting in Multi Stroboscopic mode it can over heat at times.
