Sony cameras have always been the last of the trio – Canon, Nikon and Sony – to get products from Phottix, so the fact that the Odin II TTL Flash Trigger only sees the light now should be no surprise. Surprise may be the fact that the transmitter is launched without any receivers, contrary to what happens with Canon and Nikon.
If you thought “what good is a transmitter without receivers?” be aware that the Phottix Odin II TTL Flash Trigger Transmitter for Sony can easily control and trigger compatible products within the Phottix ecosystem, including the Mitros+ TTL Transceiver Flash (For Sony), the 2016 TIPA-award winning Phottix Indra360 TTL Studio light, and the lauded Indra500 TTL Studio light. So, even if you do not have the option to use the Phottix Odin II TTL Flash Trigger Receiver, like Canon and Nikon users have, you still can control some of the lights made by Phottix. Firmware upgrades for the Mitros+ and Indra series adding Odin II functionality are available for download.
Furthermore, the Phottix Odin II TTL Flash Trigger Transmitter for Sony is also compatible with multiple receivers/transceivers from Phottix: Odin, Strato, Strato II and Atlas II, although some limitations may apply.
According to Phottix, the Odin II gives photographers more control than they have ever experienced; control that is direct, logical, and fast. Each of the 5 Groups has its own quick-access button. Changes are made by turning a large, perfectly-placed, control dial. Pick the light. Make the change. Lock it in. Shoot. A large, illuminated LCD panel shows all settings at a glance. Control five lights or groups of lights, in TTL Auto or Manual. Switch a Group OFF and its display line disappears from the screen. Displaying only active groups assures an easier and simpler viewing experience.
With a price of $215.00, the Phottix Odin II TTL Flash Trigger Transmitter for Sony is already available on the market.
