Canon owners have had their version for some time now, but Nikon owners can rejoice as the Phottix Strato TTL Flash Trigger for Nikon becomes available. The newest addition to the popular Strato series of flash triggers and wireless remotes offers High-speed and second curtain sync in this 4-channel, 2.4 GHz transmitter and receiver set.
The Phottix Strato TTL Flash Trigger for Nikon offers High-speed at the maximum shutter speed your camera allows (1/8000, if available), along with second curtain sync. Adjust EV between (+/- 3 stops in 1/3 stops, update your firmware through USB, so you’re never left behind, and control all this through the quick-change buttons and backlit LCD.
Offering wired and wireless shutter release functions besides triggering flashes, the Phottix Strato TTL Trigger for Nikon has a range of 100 meters, and is compatible with other Phottix flash triggers. But triggering hot shoe flashes is only the start of the Phottix Strato TTL’s abilities. The Strato TTL will also trigger studio lights. In-camera flash menu functions are also supported by the Strato TTL. Changes made to flash mode, AF assist light, exposure lock, exposure compensation and flash focal zoom, metering modes and changing channels can be done from the camera menu if desired (and your camera allows, obviously).
The Strato TTL flash trigger is part of the ever-growing Phottix ecosystem and is compatible with the Phottix Strato I and Strato II Multi series of triggers as well as the Phottix Atlas II. The receiver is easy to connect to light stands or other grip with a locking metal cold shoe and ¼ x20 threaded lug. The Strato TTL transmitters and receivers use AA batteries, just like hot shoe flashes – carrying different sized batteries is no longer a concern.
One thing to remember: the Strato TTL Flash Trigger has been optimized to work with original Nikon and Phottix Mitros flashes. Other third party flashes may not work properly.
