Tony Clapp Reviews The Phottix Indra500 TTL

Take a look at what my friend Tony Clapp had to say about the Phottix Indra500 TTL!  I couldn’t be more excited with the amount of people that I convinced to make the switch!

Tony Clapp Indra500 TTL Review:

“When I purchased my first two Phottix Indra 500 TTL lights, I wasn’t eager to purchase new lights.  I had just returned from a trip to San Diego and my current light set-up had let me down on a beach shoot.  The battery took on a touch of water which rendered it inoperable.  Those batteries and lights were also very heavy and cumbersome.  I needed a light setup that was not only light and portable but somewhat durable.  I shoot in gyms, on beaches, in the mountains, hotel rooms, and a variety of spots where being light, portable, and powerful is a necessity.  Enter Phottix.  

I had watched my business partner and studio mate Don Hales shoot with his Phottix Indra set-up.  I had been a little bit envious – I can’t lie.  When I came back from San Diego, I chatted with Don about making the change and then decided to pull the trigger because I had jobs coming up in Cancun, Cabo San Lucas, Atlantic City, and again in San Diego.  I received my two light Phottix Indra500 TTL kit in early August and found out just how easy they are to use and immediately put them to work on a job in the Colorado mountains.  Subsequently I had them on location in Mexico twice, and traveled coast to coast in the continental United States.  These lights have changed my photography and my photography business!  

What do I love about these lights?  First, they are light weight and portable.  The Indra 500 provides plenty of power.  I love being able to shoot with shallow apertures of f2.2 in the middle of the day and because of the HSS (high speed sync) I can exceed my shutter speed to control ambient light at those shallow depths of field.   Next, I love the TTL (through the lens) metering feature. because of the TTL feature, I can get set-up on a job quickly and efficiently while creating the perfect images.  

I wish that I would have pulled the trigger on this light set-up sooner.  This kit has definitely been a game changer and seriously helped elevate my business and my photography game.”
