Phottix Atlas II Triggers Are Now Available in Hong Kong via PASM Workshop

It’s finally here, the all new Phottix Atlas II is now available in Hong Kong via my studio, PASM Workshop (authorized Phottix dealer).

The Phottix Atlas II is the professional choice for reliable wireless flash triggering. Say goodbye to transmitters and receivers to trigger flashes, studio lights, and cameras – one remote will do it all. The Atlas II triggers flashes at sync speeds of up to 1/250 sec.* The system will trigger cameras, flashes and studio lights at distances of 350 meters or more.

The Phottix Atlas II is a transceiver. With the simple change of a switch the Atlas II is ready to either transmit or receive signals. Simplify your off-camera flash triggering – one unit can be used as a transmitter or receiver.

Triggering flashes is only one of the Phottix Atlas II functions. It can also be used, with Phottix Accessory Cables, as a wired or wireless shutter release. It now features a two stage shutter button – a half-press will autofocus, a full press takes a photo.

The Atlas II is compatible with Phottix Strato and Odin series TTL triggers. It fits in perfectly with Phottix’s existing line-up, allowing the power and freedom of a long-range transceiver. With its new functions. the Atlas II is not compatible with the original Phottix Atlas trigger.

With a hot shoe and two 3.5mm sync ports on the transceiver, the Phottix Atlas II can be used to easily trigger hot shoe flashes and studio lights*. Cables and adapters are included. The Atlas II uses readily available AA batteries and has a 5V DC power port.

The Phottix Atlas II uses a digital IC and radio signals to reliably fire flashes, studio lights and cameras at long ranges. Need to trigger a flash from 1,100 feet away? The Atlas II is the wireless trigger for you. The high-powered Atlas has both FCC and CE wireless certification.

The Phottix Atlas II comes in two different packings, a single pack (1 trigger) and a dual pack (2 triggers). PASM Workshop is offering great discounts to its members.

List price for 1 trigger set ~ HK$590, PASM Member price HK$515.

List price for 2 triggers set ~ HK$1,080, PASM Member Price HK$960.
