North White Plains, NY (PRWEB) June 06, 2017
As part of their ongoing Lighting Alliance, Sekonic and Phottix are making it easier than ever for emerging photographers to enter the world of off-camera lighting with wireless metering and triggering.
It’s like getting a free set of triggers!
The feature-rich Sekonic Litemaster Pro L-478PX-U meter for Phottix and the powerful and reliable Phottix Ares II Remote Flash Trigger and Receiver Set are now available for $399.00; the same price as buying the meter alone.
"We love it when two manufacturers come together to create something truly valuable for photographers at an amazing price. This bundle is a great starting place for anyone looking to understand and control light regardless of what gear they own." said Jan Lederman, President of MAC Group, the US Distributer for Sekonic and Phottix.
Add wireless triggering and metering to almost any flash or strobe
Thanks to the universal connectivity of the Ares II via the 3.5mm port or using the built in hot-shoe on the Ares II receiver, this bundled wireless ecosystem allows photographers to add wireless triggering and metering to almost any flash or strobe. Now, photographers shooting within different genres can truly explore lighting possibilities, create specific lighting styles and make their results repeatable regardless of the equipment they currently own. The universal compatibility of this kit means this system is future proof and will also grow with the photographer as their skills and lighting needs evolve.
