Phottix Indra500 TTL overview

  • 1Description

The Indra500 TTL GameChanger 2-Light Kit for Nikon from Phottix is a great kit for photographers who work on location without immediate access to AC power. The kit includes 2 Indra500 TTL 500 Ws monolights with Li-ion batteries and chargers and an Odin II TTL Trigger Transmitter for Nikon. The kit's light modifiers include a 32" Easy Up Octa Softbox with Grid and a 24 x 35" Easy Up Softbox with Grid. Two 9' air-cushioned stands are provided to support the lights and softboxes.

  • Indra500 TTL Battery Powered Studio Light

    Intended for photographers on the road, the Indra500 TTL Battery Powered Studio Light from Phottix offers a design driven by portability, flexibility and power. Both power cord-free and sync cord-free, the Indra500 is also hassle-free thanks to the Odin receivers for Nikon and Canon cameras built-into every unit.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 optional AC adapter. Action-stopping flash durations as short as 1/15,000 (t.1) sec. are possible at reduced power settings for freezing splashes or peak-moment sports shots.

    The Indra500's battery is the key to taking studio quality light out into the field. Photo sessions can have a fluid quality not possible when tethered to an AC cord; setups change in seconds rather than minutes - assistants can even handhold the lights. This can be done 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. The battery gets 400 full-power flashes on a 5-hour charge and thousands at minimum power.

    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 Li-ion polymer battery, charger and reflector. A 110-220 VAC adapter is available for separate purchase.

    TTL
    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
    Upgradeable
    The Indra500 TTL offers a USB port for future firmware upgrades. As camera technology changes the Indra can change along with it
    Bowens Reflector Mount
    The Indra500 comes with an umbrella reflector with a Bowens mount. It is also compatible with the other brand accessories that use this mount
  • Odin II TTL Flash Trigger Transmitter for Nikon

    Realize the full potential of your flash setup by adding wireless triggering and control with the Phottix Odin II TTL Flash Trigger Transmitter. Compatible with Nikon's i-TTL flash system and equipped with a 2.4 GHz radio transmission system, the Odin II will communicate and trigger receivers or radio-capable flash units at distances up to 328'. To further benefit users, it can be used in a multi-system setup that involve Odin TTL, Strato, and Strato II receivers as well as Mitros+, Indra360, and Indra 500 lights. A major improvement over the previous model is an expansion of channels and the introduction of the Digital ID which gives further control over channels 5-32 to eliminate interference with other systems.

    Embracing TTL communication between the camera and flash, automatic exposures can easily be made and more advanced users can take advantage of manual power and zoom control to dial in the exact look they need. Using the five groups, users can also control different groups and flashes with varying settings as well as mix and match TTL and manual units. All of this is easily accessed via the large LCD screen along with direct access buttons for the groups and a rotary dial for quickly adjusting settings.

    Additional features include both high-speed sync for TTL flashes as well as the proprietary OverDrive Sync mode for manual studio strobes, both of which allow users to work at shutter speeds up to 1/8000 second. Also, users will be able to remotely control the modeling light of their Indra TTL strobes as well as use an AF assist light when needed. And, it has a mini-USB port for firmware updates.

    TTL information transmission is possible with Odin TTL receiver, Mitros+ flash, and Indra360/500 TTL lights while manual triggering is possible with Strato and Strato II receivers
    Ratio control in A:B mode from 8:1 to 1:8 in 1/2 step increments
    Manual power control from 1/1 to 1/128
    Ten custom functions
    LED indicator light
    Exposure compensation of ±3 EV in 1/3 step increments

  • Easy Up HD Umbrella Octa Softbox with Grid (32")

    With a design the allows it to fold up like an umbrella, the Easy Up HD Umbrella Octa Softbox with Grid from Phottix is a light modifier with a 32" diameter and a large surface area that makes it a favorite of portrait and fashion photographers. The softbox has a silver interior for maximum output and a removable front diffuser that covers its unique design. Instead of being aimed forward from the back of the softbox, the flash head is placed inside the softbox and directed into the back of it. The result is an especially soft light quality without the hotspot which is common with traditional light modifiers.

    A pleasant by-product of using the Octa Softbox is the reflection of natural-looking circular catchlights in the eyes of the subject. A fabric grid that folds down to a fraction of its open size is also included. It mounts to the recessed lip of the softbox and tunnels the light forward offering directional control while maintaining softness and controlling spill light.

  • Easy Up HD Umbrella Softbox with Grid (24 x 35")

Phottix Indra500 TTL reviews

Indra500 TTL GameChanger 2-Light Kit for Nikon is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Would be a 5 except for the lousy softboxes I'm a working pro with a store front portrait studio. Even with the studio, I do a lot of outdoor portraiture. Using large batteries and studio strobes and then multiple radio controlled speedlites in a softbox, I've been able to take the studio outside but, I could either have the power or the ability to use high speed sync but not both. It was always a struggle. Really excited to see this package become available. Sounded like a real value. Love the lights, their fit, finish and function, accurate, well designed and executed. Studio strobe power, TTL and HSS, what more could you ask for? The drawback is the lousy, speed-lite type softboxes. What a disappointment. Not functionable and totally unusable for this applicaiton IMO. The way they are depicted in the promotional images, you cannot tell what they are. Had to invest another $800 for some decent light modifiers and speed rings....now they are ideal but kinda blew the value of the package for me.
