Add wireless enhancement to your flash's capabilities with the Phottix Ares II Wireless Flash Trigger Receiver from Phottix. The receiver features both a hot shoe and a 3.5mm sync port for connecting to both on-camera flashes and studio strobes. Once connected, this receiver can then be triggered by a separately available Ares II transmitter from a distance of up to 492'. This system also uses a 2.4 GHz frequency to limit interference as well as access to 16 channels, 4 groups, and digital ID codes so that it won't be accidentally tripped by nearby photographers.
Offering advanced versatility for manual shooters, the receiver is compatible with the Sekonic L-478DR-PX meter that will wirelessly connect with it at a distance, trip the flash, and display the exposure information on its screen. The system's separately-purchased transmitter can also be used with the Strato wireless system and will trigger Juno flashes with built-in Ares II receivers.
The Ares II receiver is easy to mount on a stand or bracket via a cold shoe mount with 1/4"-20 thread on the base, and it runs on two AA batteries. It has a maximum sync speed of 1/250 second and is equipped with a backlit LCD for checking and changing settings.
