About Phottix

The Phottix Ares - a simple way to use off-camera flash. The 8-channel transmitter and receiver units have a range of 200m and feature a "fire-all" channel function. No advanced bells or whistles - simple, reliable and affordable radio flash triggering engineered with Phottix durability and quality.

The Ares accommodates how photographers want to work - with the transmitter upright for fast channels changes, or locked in the low-profile down position. With a hot shoe and 3.5mm sync port the Phottix Ares can be used to trigger hot shoe flashes and studio lights. Cables and adapters are included. Packed in a stylish carrying bag, the Ares uses readily available AA batteries. The Phottix Ares 2.4GHz signals have a range of 200m, offer freedom from line-of-sight restrictions and a fast maximum sync speed of 1/250s. The eight digital channels are fast and easy to set with the push of a button. The Fire-All function allows photographers to fire all flashes or strobes on Phottix Ares receivers set to different channels - every useful when using multiple lights during an event or wedding.

Great manual triggers


from Michigan  -  Photo Enthusiast

Great system for a very reasonable price. Excellent build quality. Single channel firing is great for checking individual flash setups and then use all channel to fire all flash units when your setup is complete. Recommend highly.


Solid Performer


from Athens, GA

Used these under real-world conditions for the first time today at a wedding. Initially had some trouble getting one to flash when more than 50' away, but replacing the batteries solved the problem (had installed the batteries that came with it...). Whether using a single channel or firing all channels all receivers and the transmitter worked flawlessly. It would be nice to have iTTL capabilities, but for the price that is not a realistic expectation. If you want a solid performer and can use manual mode on your flash units, this a very good product at a great price.
