Phottix just announced a new flash, the Phottix Mitros+, which combines the abilities to both send and receive commands from other units. Available for Canon in October and Nikon before the year's end, using the Mitros+ means there's one less piece of gear you'll need to deal with on a shoot.

The Mitros+ features a guide number of 58, a 24-105mm flash zoom, optical slaving, ETTL I/II, manual and multi stroboscopic modes, as well as high speed sync and second curtain sync. But the big news is the inclusion of the Phottix Odin transmitter and receiver, and Strato receiver. So you can use it to control an Odin rig, or use it as part of an Odin or Strato setup for extra illumination.

The Odin Transmitter in the Mitros+ operates similarly to the Phottix Odin TCU. Photographers have three groups, A, B and C, and four channels to use. Control TTL EV adjustments of +- 3 in 1/3 stops and manual power from full power to 1/128 in 1/3 stops. The Mitros+ can be triggered by existing Phottix Strato II Multi transmitters.

There's no word at present what the Mitros+ will cost, but Phottix devices tend to be on the affordable side.
