Phottix Indra500 Overview

  • 1Description

Intended for photographers who desire wireless shooting, the Indra500 TTL Studio Light with AC Adapter Kit from Phottix offers a design driven by portability, flexibility and power. This light is able to remain sync cord-free, and therefore hassle-free, thanks to the Odin receivers for Nikon and Canon cameras built-in to every unit. And, with the use of an optional rechargeable battery pack users can eliminate the need for the AC cable.

Phottix starts with a flash head with all the qualities of a studio flash such as 500Ws of power, adjustable from 1/128 to full power over an 8 stop range. Recycling time is 0.1 to 2 seconds with the included Li-ion polymer battery and 0.1 - 1 second with the included AC adapter. Action-stopping flash duration as short as 1/15,000 (t.1) sec. is possible at reduced power settings for freezing splashes or peak-moment sports shots. The light can be triggered at distances up to 328' thanks to built-in radio receivers for Nikon and Canon cameras and use of the optional Odin 4 channel transmitter.

This would be an impressive flash head if Phottix had just stopped there but the Indra500 is also TTL capable with Nikon and Canon cameras, allowing photographers to seamlessly transition in rapidly changing light conditions using their camera's auto-exposure technology. Using the optional transmitter, TTL power can be adjusted remotely ±3 EV, while manual mode has an expanded 8-stop range.

The Indra500 TTL ships with a 110-220 VAC adapter, power cord, and reflector.

Most studio lights function only in manual camera modes, limiting their use in fast-moving environments. The Indra500 TTL opens up new creative possibilities, allowing photographers to shoot in shutter and aperture priority modes while taking advantage of their camera's auto-exposure technology
High Sync Speeds
Traditional studio lights have sync speeds limited to 1/200-1/250 sec., making balancing flash and ambient light levels problematic. The Phottix Indra's High Speed Sync function allows speeds up to 1/8,000 sec. for a much wider exposure latitude
Second Curtain Sync
The Second Curtain Sync function fires the flash at the end of the exposure rather than the beginning, allowing use of slow shutter speeds to create a natural looking blur trail behind subjects in progressive motion
Flash Bracketing
Instead of altering the look of your shot by changing your aperture or shutter speed, let the Indra automatically vary its power to get lighter and darker shots around your prime exposure
Stroboscopic Mode
This mode allows you to capture sequential action by varying the Hertz rate from 1-100 Hz and the flash frequency from 1-100 times per exposure
Built-in Triggering
Adjust TTL exposure compensation ±3 EV or adjust power 1/3 or full stops over an 8-stop range in manual mode from up to 328' away with the optional Odin transmitter. The Indra has built-in Odin receivers for Nikon and Canon cameras. Phottix Strato II users can trigger the Indra 500 too, but in manual mode only
The Indra500 TTL offers a USB port for future firmware upgrades. As camera technology changes the Indra can change along with it

Phottix Indra500 Reviews

Indra500 TTL Studio Light with AC Adapter Kit is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from VERY happy with this product. VERY happy with this product. I have been saving up for ages, although I do believe its excellent value for money and very well-built. I was surprised that (apparently) Phottix no longer make the AC adaptor as a new line item. This is not a good move to me as I believe it's one of the many things that sets Phottix above the other choices. Excellent speedy service from B&H.

does this work with Sony Alpha yet ?
Asked by: Daniel
The latest Indra firmware update will give you Odin-S as one of the RX selections, which will allow the flash to communicate with the Odin transmitter for Sony.
