IMPACT CRUISER TTL-500 – Cordless Strobe Released

IMPACT CRUISER TTL-500

 

B&H Photo have released the Impact Cruiser TTL-500, TTL & High Speed Sync enabled 500Ws portable strobe, with 2.4GHz radio built-in for Canon, Nikon, and Sony camera systems.

The Cruiser TTL-500 come standard with on-board Lithium-ion battery, as well as multi voltage AC power adapter included for worldwide mains power use.

Its worth noting the (B&H house brand) Impact Cruiser TTL-500 have very similar features and specs to the Interfit S1, and at the time of writing this are priced the same as well.

Though the S1 do provide a metal flash body, slightly shorter (stated) minimum flash duration, and a transmitter with a narrower case design.

The Impact Cruiser at the time of writing this also do not provide HSS with Sony (where the S1 will).

Flash duration ranges from 1/1,000 at full power, down to 1/9,000 at minimum power.

    I have no problem with the specs but I have hard to invest in this instead of godox

      I’m with you. Godox and its re-branded products have set the bar really high in terms of price to performance.

    Any idea who’s actually making this for B&H to market?

    The one thing Adorama has mastered over B&H is marketing of its house brands.

    It even reminds me of the S1 from interfit . Almost like an updated design for the S1. What IMPACT needs or any other manufacturer to compete is an ecosystem of lights . That’s the edge that Godox/flashpoint have .
