Phottix PH89074 overview

  • 1Description

Realize the full potential of your flash setup by adding wireless triggering and control with the Phottix Odin II TTL Flash Trigger Transmitter. Compatible with Canon's E-TTL / E-TTL II flash system and equipped with a 2.4 GHz radio transmission system, the Odin II will communicate and trigger receivers or radio-capable flash units at distances up to 328'. To further benefit users, it can be used in a multi-system setup that involve Odin TTL, Strato, and Strato II receivers as well as Mitros+, Indra360, and Indra 500 lights. A major improvement over the previous model is an expansion of channels and the introduction of the Digital ID which gives further control over channels 5-32 to eliminate interference with other systems.

Embracing TTL communication between the camera and flash, automatic exposures can easily be made and more advanced users can take advantage of manual power and zoom control to dial in the exact look they need. Using the five groups, users can also control different groups and flashes with varying settings as well as mix and match TTL and manual units. All of this is easily accessed via the large LCD screen along with direct access buttons for the groups and a rotary dial for quickly adjusting settings.

Additional features include both high-speed sync for TTL flashes as well as the proprietary OverDrive Sync mode for manual studio strobes, both of which allow users to work at shutter speeds up to 1/8000 second. Also, users will be able to remotely control the modeling light of their Indra TTL strobes as well as use an AF assist light when needed. And, it has a mini-USB port for firmware updates.

TTL information transmission is possible with Odin TTL receiver, Mitros+ flash, and Indra360/500 TTL lights while manual triggering is possible with Strato and Strato II receivers
Ratio control in A:B mode from 8:1 to 1:8 in 1/2 step increments

    Phottix PH89074 reviews

    Odin II TTL Flash Trigger Transmitter for Canon is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 16.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A nice upgrade to a great system Took them two years but it is finally out. I have 4 Odin receivers for my Canon strobes, a couple of Indra 500s and an orginal transmitter. This system worked very well but I needed more groups. Solved with the Odin II. It has better ergo design and less button pushing for the same or better functionality. The top row are for each group which is faster that before. The wheel control is a little faster. This TCU work very well with my existing Indra/Odin I system. Once Phottix provides Indra firmware I will probably replace my receivers. Be aware you only get the first 3 groups if you use the old receivers. All in all I am pretty happy. All the functions just work. Best yet the still use AA batteries.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what the doctor ordered. I've used the Odin I system for some time now and have been very happy with the system to date. It's reliable, easy to configure and just works. When the Odin II came out I was looking forward to the use of 5 groups (vs. 3 with the Odin I). With the Odin II the configurability is even easier. What genius it was to place a row of buttons just below the screen that give quick access to each group. Turning the power on/off, adjusting levels, etc. is so much quicker. And the screen shows just which groups are ON/OFF and in what mode. You can mix TTL and manual modes which gives great freedom to creativity. I've got a mix of Indra500's and Canon flashes that all play well together. The Odin II is a great referee. Keep in mind that when mixing Odin I receivers with the Odin II transmitter that you only have 3 available groups. If you use the Odin II and Indra500's solely, then the sky's the limit. This holds true also if you use the Odin II receivers. The beauty of this system is that you can have a blend of new and old flashes. Your investment in older technology is not put into the trash bin.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the upgrade from the original Odin. I've used the Odin for a few years now. I've liked it but it did have its flaws. Most of the issues that I had with the original have been solved with this model. I like that it is backwards compatible and I didn't have to go out and buy new receivers right away. The only downfall to that is you have to put it on channels 1-4 and when you do the D and E groups are unavailable. So to use all five groups you will need to eventually upgrade the receivers. Now if you have the old system it is still worth upgrading the transmitter. The ease of use makes it worth it. I hated selecting the groups on the old one. You had to wait a second for it to blink to know which group you were editing. This one you just just the group's button and control everything you need in just that group. And the control wheel is a lot faster to work with compared to buttons. The focusing light is handy. This was something that is needed especially if you are consider using it at weddings. The communication with your camera is improved as well. If you change your Flash Exposure Compensation on the Odin it reflects on the camera as well. And Vise Versa. The previous model did do this and you had to check to make sure that the FEC had not been changed or your pictures would be off with TTL. It also goes to sleep faster and save your batteries. That's nice too. I've used it for about two weeks on a pair of Eneloop batteries without charging. I'd say about 1500-2000 pictures and the batteries are still going. And that is with me forgetting to cut them off at night sometimes too. My first impression of them when opening the box was that they just didn't seem as sturdy as I would have liked. But, on the other hand, the Original Odin's felt cheaper made to me and I put them through hell and they never really broke. So I guess they are durable enough. So I would definitely recommend these to anyone. It's worth the price to upgrade. I am quite happy with mine.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from A slight improvement I bought my original Odin transmitter about a year ago when I purchased my Indra 500 TTL strobe. That version worked relatively well with few hiccups. One thing that was a bit of a pain was turning on & off the special hi-speed shutter setting/timing for the Canon 1Dx versus my 5Ds. Admittedly, I'm not sure I ever really saw a difference when I forgot. The greatest weakness of the old Odin/Indra was that you could not control manual power settings from the camera. Now I own the new Odin II, because it was supposed to address the lack of manual power settings from the remote. And guess what? Unless I totally screwed up (always possible), I STILL can't adjust the manual power from the transmitter, though there is now the option to do so. (I updated the firmware of the Indra to take advantage of the Odin II.) The one plus is no special setting for hi-speed sync between my 1Dx and 5Ds. I do find the new Odin a tad more reliable in it's TTL exposures. You still can't use the unit on zero. I dial the Indra back to -2.0, on average, and the Odin II to -2.0. (Depends on the light I'm trying to balance. I don't like an overally strobie look and prefer the look and feel of a white or silver reflector. Previously my default setting would be -3.0 and -3.0.) The accuracy of the TTL has improved and that's a complaint many have had. The other huge improvement is the tightening lever (similar to Canon), rather than the screw-down thumb wheel. Overall, this is a nice upgrade, but at least for me, having only one Phottix unit, not really necessary.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love the Phottix Odin II Well worth the wait! It took a year and a half from the time Phottix introduced the Odin II for them to deliver it. I have to say it does what it promises and I'm loving it. I use it in connection with the Indra 500. Phottix caught my attention years ago with reliable triggers and now they have out done themselves. Thank you for affordable and reliable products!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reviving my 30 years old Comet 1200W, 1/8000s right away ! I was searching for years a way to get my 30 years old Comet PMT 1200W battery pack flash on the road with my DSLR for outside portrait. The Hasselblad (film camera at the time) allowed my to get a shallow depth of field because of the 1/500 sync and the medium format lens with a shallower depth of field than 35 mm optics at the same aperture. But with a DSLR syncing at 1/200 (Canon 5d series), if I wanted to underexpose the ambient light with a bright sunny day, I was ending up at f/11-16 not that much of a bokeh.. ; ) When I learned about the Phottix Odin II combo I gave it a try As usual I received my order in Canada way before expected (2 days..and it's free.. ; ) Unpacked the transmitter and receiver, read the instructionsthe older I get the more I read.. ; ) And without having to play with the ODS (adjustment to find your optimum high speed sync with another flash than Canon or Nikon), it synced my 30 years old Comet up 1/8000 right out of the box I went outside the next day to test it with a bright sunny day (B&H doesn't provide one on arrival of my gear.. ; ) and asked my kid to ride his electrical scooter as fast as he could..1/8000 later, I think I have a winner, big time ! Yes I'm sure that it won't be as crisp as a high sync speed Broncolor or another Elinchrom or whatever is now the king pin of flash duration, but for $400 it sure revive my 30 years old Comet that is now going for another 30 years of service ! B&H your rock !

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nice idea, yet incomplete I wanted to use it, as it said with Canon flashes (Speedlite 600's) Did not know you need a Phottix Odin II TTL Flash Trigger Receiver for Canon at a cost of $ for each flash. It would have been nice if it worked with Canon flash directly. I have four speedlites so it would have cost an additional $ to make it work. It was good to be able to call them on the phone.
