Intended for photographers on the road, the Indra500 II TTL Battery Powered Studio Light from Phottix is an enhanced version of its popular predecessor, the Indra500, offering more battery power and a built-in Odin Z Operating System TTL receiver compatible with Nikon, Canon, Pentax, and Sony cameras.

The Indra 500 II's design is driven by portability, flexibility and power. Both AC power and sync-cord-free, the Indra500 II is also hassle-free thanks to the Odin Z Operating System 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 3 seconds with the included Li-ion polymer battery. Action-stopping flash durations as short as 1/15,000 (t.1) second are possible at reduced power settings for freezing splashes or peak-moment sports shots.

The Indra500 II'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 at distances up to 328' via the built-in radio receiver and an optional Odin II or Odin Z transmitter. The enhanced battery gets 500 full-power (20% more) flashes on a 2.5-hour charge and thousands at minimum power.

This would be an impressive flash head if Phottix had just stopped there but the Indra500 II is also TTL capable with Nikon, Canon, Pentax, and Sony cameras, allowing photographers to make real-time adjustments in rapidly changing light conditions using their camera's auto-exposure technology. The optional Odin II or Odin Z transmitter can adjust TTL power and exposure compensation wirelessly from +/- 3 EV, while manual mode has an expanded 8-stop range.

The Indra500 TTL II ships with a Li-ion polymer battery, multi-voltage charger, reflector, and a bag with shoulder strap. 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 1/8000 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 an optional Odin transmitter. The Indra has built-in Odin receivers for Nikon, Canon, Pentax, and Sony cameras.

Upgradeable

The Indra500 TTL II has a USB port for future firmware upgrades. As camera technology changes the Indra can change along with it

Bowens Reflector Mount

The Indra500 II comes with an umbrella reflector with a Bowens mount. It is also compatible with the other brand accessories that use this mount
