Phottix Indra500 TTL overview

  • 1Description

The Indra500 TTL 2-Monolight Kit from Phottix Pro is an ideal choice for photographers on location without access to AC power. The kit includes 2 Indra 500s, each with a 7" reflector. A 5,000 mAh Li-ion battery and AC charger with cable connect to the battery, while 11.5 and 16.4' power cables connect to the battery. It all fits in the included kit bag.

  • Indra500 TTL Studio Light

    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-into 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 optional Li-ion polymer battery and 0.1 - 1 second with the AC adapter. Action-stopping flash durations as short as 1/15000 (t.1) sec. are 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 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 1/8000 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.
  • Indra 5000mAh Lithium-Ion Cell

    Dedicated to the Phottix Indra Battery Pack, this Indra 5000mAh Lithium-Ion Cell is a spare power source for use with the Indra500 TTL Studio Light System. This lithium-ion polymer battery offers up to 360 high-speed flashes per charge, requires 2.5 hours to reach a full charge, and has been tested for at least 400 recharge cycles. The battery pack's design allows swapping batteries during shooting, and is well-suited to use as either a spare or replacement power source for extended working sessions.

    The battery also has a bonus utility in its USB port that facilitates charging of smartphones or tablets. It also has dual power ports capable, with the purchase of the appropriate cable, of powering Phottix, Nikon, Canon, or Sony on-camera flashes.

Phottix Indra500 TTL reviews

Indra500 TTL 2-Monolight Kit with Battery Pack is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product, terrible support Ive had these lights for several months now and they are fantastic. consistent power and temp output, and consistent TTL when using the Odin II i would give a 5 star to the product its self. However, Phottix has one of the worst costumer support i have come across. Also the firmware updater for Mac OS is so terrible its hard to even understand and there are no directions online to be found, so its basically unusable.
