Phottix has pulled back the curtain on its first studio light compatible with Canon’s radio flash system. The 500 W/s Indra500LC uses Canon RT triggering and control technology alongside Phottix’s Laso triggering system.
Working in tandem, you can control Canon RT-enabled Speedlites and trigger the Indra500LC from the Canon ST-E3, Canon RT Speedlites or Phottix Laso transmitter. The Laso Triggering system also supports older, non RT Canon flashes as well, so you can mix and match old Canon flashes with the more powerful Indra 500 W/s.
The new Indra supports HSS and TTL metering and offers an 8-stop power adjustment in 1/3 stop increments. It offers a strobo mode with an adjustable frequency between 1-100Hz for up to 100 flashes.
The Indra500LC package includes a Li-Ion battery, cables, charger, carrying bag and a new, smaller 5-inch reflector.
Look for the Indra500LC in October. It will set you back $1,299.
