p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Phottix Odin - Nikon


Today I ordered the Phottix Odin set for Nikon. 227 direct from Phottix and shipped to the UK. Gotta say I'm damn happy with that as the previous price for the Canon set on Amazon.co.uk was 357 which has now dropped to 257 as it appears there is a price war now between the different remote trigger brands. Radio Poppers dropped their PX system from 400 to 280.

Anyone else using the Nikon Odin system?

Wonder what the import duty and tax will be on that. They are getting quite hot on it now, and importing stuff isn't as cheap as it was.

I just got mine in the mail a couple of days ago. Nikon version. Seems to work great so far. I wish I had ordered an extra receiver.

Pros:
Simple controls
TTL works great.
You can turn on AF assist on remote flashes!
Older Strato triggers work (but can't adjust power from the odin)
Cheaper than pocketwizards and possibly more reliable


Cons:
No AF assist in the Odin unit. It would be nice but no deal breaker.
Receivers are a little pricey.



I only wish I could throw a flash on the camera somehow without a bracket during receptions.

How does this compare to TTL pocket wizards?

Well my new toys arrived today only 6 days (4 working days) after placing my order.

NO import duty to pay, total price for the Odin transmitter and receiver 230! To say I'm pleased as punch would be a very substantial understatement.

Amazon price is back at 300 so the saving is substantial. Buy direct people.

I just ordered mine today! It's going to be a long few days (weeks?) waiting for it to arrive. I ordered the receiver/transmitter combo with an additional receiver. That will allow me to control two off camera flashes.

Just picked up a transmitter and receiver at my local store here in Oslo.

I've tried everything but the range, but will give that a try later tonight.
So far I've got to say I'm really impressed. Syncs at every speed, af assist works if needed and coming from a SU-800 the interface is very/suspiciously similar.

I'll probably pick up some more receivers this weekend.

Aaaaand I just tested the range, still fired consistently at a little more than 100 meters.
My GF got bored being a "voice activated light stand" so I'll have to try longer distances some other day.
