Phottix Mitros+ TTL Transceiver
A solid on- and off-camera flashgun
There’s plenty to get excited about in this flashgun, with its high-end features that include a full range of flash modes – programmable repeat among them. Build quality is excellent, pro-grade additions include a sync terminal and external power sockets, and the flashgun comes with a diffusion dome. The 24mm to 105mm zoom range isn’t exactly generous, but bounce and swivel run from -7 to 90 degrees and 180 degrees to both left and right respectively.
Wireless connectivity gets a real boost with the inclusion of a built-in RF (Radio Frequency) TTL transceiver. This enables remote triggering of multiple master and slave flashguns without the need for a ‘line of sight’ optical path. The control panel is also easy to use, thanks to a four-way pad that’s particularly intuitive.
The Phottix is one of the most powerful flashguns in the group but TTL accuracy was poor, with a tendency towards noticeable over-exposure – and there’s no TTL-BL mode. We found it’s best to permanently apply negative flash exposure compensation. Apart from that, performance was very good.
