The new Phottix Atlas II system can be used to trigger cameras, flashes and studio lights over distances of up to 350 metres. Being a transceiver, the Phottix Atlas II can either transmit or receive signals, and you can toggle between the two functions with a flick of a switch. Fitting in with Phottix’s existing line-up, the Atlas II is compatible with Phottix Strato and Odin series TTL triggers (but incompatible with the original Atlas). Now featuring a two-stage shutter button, it can also be used, with Phottix Accessory Cables, as a wired or wireless shutter release. The Phottix Atlas II will be available in single or twin packs with MSRPs of $84.99 and $149.00, respectively.

The Atlas II triggers flashes at sync speeds of up to 1/250 sec.* The system will trigger cameras, flashes and studio lights at distances of 350 meters or more.
The Phottix Atlas II is a transceiver. With the simple change of a switch the Atlas II is ready to either transmit or receive signals. Simplify your off-camera flash triggering – one unit can be used as a transmitter or receiver.
