Introducing the Phottix Odin II TTL Flash Trigger
Phottix adds cutting edge functionality and features to its flagship trigger
Eagerly anticipated by thousands of Odin customers, the Odin II is the result of requests from Professional Photographers demanding more from their TTL flash systems. Phottix is delivering on its promises to provide the very best system available today.
Unrivalled Control and Streamlined User Interface
The Odin II allows more control than ever before. The controls are logical, simple to use, and allow extremely fast adjustments.
With five groups, A, B, C, D and E, the dedicated quick access buttons allow changes to be made by simply turning the new thumb wheel which is perfectly placed below the improved large LCD screen to adjust the compensation. The backlit LCD panel shows the settings at a glance. Now you can control five channels or groups of lights at the touch of a button, in TTL Mode or in a combination of full manual mode and TTL – the choice is yours. When switching a group off, its display line disappears from the screen, showing just the groups remaining active.
The Odin II system is compatible with the original Odin system, Phottix Mitros+ Speedlights, the award-winning Indra360 and Indra500 TTL Studio lights, Strato and Strato II receivers, and Atlas II in receiver mode. Using channels 1 to 4 you can work with the kit you already own with the Phottix Odin II.
More Channels and Digital ID
To take advantage of the Phottix Odin II, a total of 32 channels can be used, channels 5 to 32 use the full functionality of the Odin II receiver, including a user-set digital ID for the ultimate in secure triggering. Users can remotely control Speedlight zoom settings, providing the perfect coverage from a wide angle to a spot light. When shooting with the Phottix Indra360/500 series, the Odin II transmitter also offers remote modelling light control and full light ratio controls.
