Manual flashes serve as a great tool to break in lighting novices and they remain a valuable asset once they advance and build out a full lighting kit. However, as with a lot of photography accessories, finding a quality entry-level product at a price that’s within reach can be difficult.

As listed above, the Juno is compatible with multiple brands; allowing those with more than one system in their kit to retain off-camera flash capability as they switch between bodies. If you’re switching brands or you’ve got a mixed bag of bodies…camera bodies, here is a list that will work with the Juno.

- Sony (MIS)
Wherever you find a meeting of quality and affordability, you’ll also find a good number of photographers with a fist full of cash. So this seems like a good move from Phottix as they are a brand that a budget-minded customer looking outside of first-party options could recognize. If Phottix can deliver the goods on the Juno, this could also provide an entry into their entire lighting ecosystem.
It is also available as a kit for $149.99 that consists of the Juno and an Ares II Trigger Receiver.
