Indra 500 TTL: Introducing the new Portable Battery or Mains Studio Flash from Phottix

The new Phottix Indra 500 TTL is a 500 Watt TTL portable Studio Flash Light featuring High Speed Sync. Under the hood is the ultimate in control, thanks to the built-in, award-winning Phottix Odin TTL Flash Trigger for Canon and Nikon. The Indra500 TTL is the perfect way to unleash your creativity. Use TTL to shoot fast moving events like weddings, shoot on-location, control ambient light with high speed sync and shoot wide-open with shutter speeds up to 1/8000s.

The Indra 500 TTL offers 8 stops of power adjustment - from full power to 1/128 - perfect for overcoming midday sun or adding just a hint of light when shooting with large apertures. TTL exposures can be adjusted in +/- 3 EV levels.

Using a Li-ion Battery Pack the Phottix Indra is the perfect on-location light with recharge times of 2 seconds and 360 full-power flashes (High-Speed Mode) when fully charged.
