Phottix Tetra Wireless Flash Trigger


Phottix Tetra is used for triggering off-camera flashes and for studio flash made by Canon/ Nikon/ Sigma/ Olympus/ Pentax/ Vivitar.  Phottix Tetra comprises a transmitter and a receiver. The transmitter mounts onto your camera's hot-shoe. The receiver is attached to any portable flashgun with a hot-shoe style base or PC sync cable.

The transmitter emits a wireless signal to the receiver when the shutter is triggered which, in turn, fires the flash. This allows you to take pictures with off-camera flash and not have to depend on your built-in flash as the trigger device. The unit works with all cameras that have a hot-shoe feature, but does not offer TTL or any form of automated camera control. You can also use older cameras or flashguns that don't have a hot-shoe facility.

The transmitter will take the 3.5mm PC cord to connect the PC socket of the camera. You can use the same 3.5mm PC (with 6mm converter) Sync cord to connect the receiver and studio light to trigger the studio light.
