Phottix’s newest budget-friendly flash trigger system – the Phottix Ares II transmitter boasts the latest technology and is perfect for manual shooting with studio lights or hot shoe flashes. Better yet: The popular original Phottix Ares system was a standalone product within the Phottix ecosystem – not so for the Ares II.
