Phottix put themselves on the map with photographers when they introduced the Phottix Odin years ago. Back in 2014, they introduced the Odin II–which is only now going to ship but offers some really cool performance enhancements to the standard TTL flash trigger as well as a new interface from the original Odin.
So what’s this trigger got?
In a gist, what you’re looking at is a radio flash trigger that can control Phottix Mitros+ flashes, Stratos series, Stratos II series and the Phottix Indra series of monolights wirelessly for Canon and Nikon cameras. Alternatively, you can control both Canon and Nikon flashes with the new Odin II receiver.
Even cooler is the new High Speed Sync with TTL flashes and OverDrive Sync with manual, wire-connected, studio-type flashes. The latter is claiming to enable flash photography with standard studio strobes at up to 1/8000th.
In this spring of this year, Phottix says that they’ll introduce the Sony version.
