Phottix recently announced their Odin TTL triggers for Sony, and today they’re announcing an upgrade to their Strato triggers. Now: they’re TTL. We reviewed the original Strato II triggers, and liked them, but the addition of TTL is really pretty nice. We also really liked the Odin TTL triggers for Canon.
But something is a bit weird here…
The newly revamped triggers will now sync to 1/8000th, work at 200+ meters and feature four different channels to use. They can be used with the other Strato wireless radio triggers (Strato I, II and the Atlas system) and will come in Canon, Nikon, and Sony flavors. Expect to see them released during Q4 of this year or Q1 of next year.
But now that these are TTL, that begs the question: what will happen to the Odins? Sure the Odins sport a much better transmitter that is also a heck of a lot easier to use than I imagine this one being, but still: this seems super affordable and within the reach of most people. It will be interesting to see how these play out in terms of sales numbers across the world.
