Phottix Mitros+ flash units for Nikon are now available in the Phottix Store, and should be making their way to other popular retailers soon.
Mitros+ are the first Speedlight system available for Nikon with full ITTL Radio Transceiver built-in. And therefor a major breakthrough for the many Nikon owners who have been waiting for a Nikon compatible alternative to the popular Canon RT radio flash system.
The Mitros+ even have some significant advantages though over the Canon RT system, as you can still combine your existing ITTL flashes in the new Mitros+ radio system by attaching Phottix Odin receivers to them. As well as fire manual studio lights etc (via Strato II, Atlas II, or Odin receivers) without having to add inconvenient extra manual transmitter units to the camera.
And the new Mitros+ flash retails from around $399, making the Phottix system more affordable than the current Canon option, or likely anything Nikon may themselves offer in the future. While still providing what has proven to be one of the most solid and reliable systems available, and with 2 year warranty as standard.
Announcing: The Phottix Mitros+ TTL Transceiver Flash is the best of Phottix’s gold-standard products all-in-one.

The Mitros+ is a new industry landmark and was developed with input from professional photographers, world-wide.

Use the Mitros+ on-camera as a key or fill light, and control and trigger other Mitros+ flashes or compatible flashes using Phottix Odin Receivers. Built-in Phottix Odin and Strato II Receiver functions mean the Mitros+ can be used with many existing Phottix flash triggers.
The Odin Transmitter in the Mitros+ operates similarly to the Phottix Odin TCU. Photographers have three groups, A, B and C, and four channels to use. Control TTL EV adjustments of +- 3 in 1/3 stops and manual power from full power to 1/128 in 1/3 stops. The Mitros+ can be triggered by existing Phottix Strato II Multi transmitters.
In additional to the Transmitter and Receiver functions, the Mitros+ is also a flash. Perfect for fast-paced wedding and event photographers or photojournalists shooting where an on-camera TTL flash is a must. The Mitros+ is truly all-in-one.
The easy-to-use Mitros+ also offers TTL, Manual and Multi Stroboscopic modes, a rotating and elevating flash head, high speed sync, second curtain sync, external battery port, 3.5mm sync port and custom functions.
With Phottix Odin functionality built-in the Mitros+ be can used to trigger Phottix Odin and Strato Receivers. Likewise: You can trigger the Mitros+ using a Phottix Odin TCU or Strato II Multi Transmitter. Using the Mitros+ in Odin Transmitter Mode provides the same functions found on the Phottix Odin, including:
- Remote power control of groups in TTL with +/- EV adjustments – 3 stops in 1/3 stop increments – 18 different levels
- Remote power control in Manual Mode: Full power to 1/128 in 1/3 stop increments.
- Mix TTL and Manual flash – Fire some groups in TTL, others in manual.
- Remote power control in A:B ratio modes with +/- EV adjustments.
- High speed sync – Shutter speeds up to 1/8000 sec.
- Second curtain sync functions
- Remote flash head zoom adjustments – auto or manual
The Mitros+ will control and trigger other Mitros+ flashes in receiver mode or Phottix Odin Receivers. Like the Phottix Odin, the Mitros+ has a backlit LCD and is intuitive and easy to use.
Mitros+ TTL Transceiver Flash
The Mitros+ has a built-in Strato II Multi-compatible receiver. Existing Strato II Multi transmitters can trigger the Mitros+. The Mitros+ can also trigger Strato II Multi and Strato I Receivers, and Atlas II Transceivers in Rx Mode, when used as an Odin TCU.
New with the Mitros+: Built-in memory functions. Three sets of flash and function information can be saved in the Mitros+’s memory and be quickly recalled when needed. Do you use the Mitros+ in different modes for different situations? Quickly recall saved set-ups for fast use.
Mitros+ for Nikon screen display options –
The Mitros + also solves one of the most common problems encountered by many wedding and event photographers currently using the Canon RT Radio flash system. That is how to fire other Canon (or in this case Nikon ITTL flashes) and manual studio lights without having to cobble together more transmitter units on the camera.
The Mitros + provides a number of quality receiver options for firing other TTL speedlites and manual studio flashes as well. The flash can then be mounted securely and reliably directly on camera hotshoe without any pass through hotshoes or extra transmitters needed on the camera.
Of course using Mitros+ flash units off camera there is no need for any extra receiver units for those, which is a huge convenience saving carrying extra gear and extra battery management etc.
