The Phottix Odin TTL wireless radio triggers for Sony had been rumored for a while now, but today they’ve been officially announced and the company also states that they’ll ship this week.
Here’s the interesting news though: they used the Minolta hot shoe. Why is that weird? Because a camera like the new Sony A99 uses a standard hot shoe. Users of that camera are the market base most likely to purchase these triggers. In order to use them though, they’ll need an adapter for standard hot shoes to Minolta.
We reviewed the triggers for Canon DSLRs before, and we’re a huge fan. Specs and more after the jump. No word on official pricing yet, but we can expect them to be fairly affordable for everything that they’re capable of doing.
