Phottix Odin II front White LRIntroducing the Odin II TTL Flash Trigger:
Phottix adds cutting edge functionality and features to their flagship trigger

Introduced at Photokina 2014, there is no flash triggering system that is more anticipated than the Odin II. It is the result of operational requests from the thousands of happy Odin users who love their TTL flash systems and want even more. Phottix is delivering on all of its promises. And then some.

Unrivalled Control and Streamlined User Interface
The Odin II Transmitter 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.

More Channels and Digital ID
Pick from 32 channels. The first four channels offer three Groups and are compatible with the original Odin receivers. Channels five through thirty-two use the new functionality of the Odin II receiver including user-set digital ID for the ultimate in secure triggering. Remotely control speedlight zoom settings to provide the perfect coverage from broad light to spot. When shooting with Phottix Indra360/500 light, the Odin II transmitter also offers remote modeling light brightness control. [click to continue…]

The Odin II is the marriage of the most user friendly interface I’ve ever seen and the most reliable triggering system I’ve ever used.

Sekonic L-478DR-PX

Sekonic announced two new light meters compatible with the systems of its alliance partners Elinchrom and Phottix.

The new models of L-478DR-EL Series and L-478DR-PX Series, developed with cooperation of Elinchrom in Switzerland and Phottix in Hong Kong, offer wireless triggering and power control of Elinchrom flash units and triggering of flashes and radio triggers using the Phottix Strato II protocol, respectively.

Both use Sekonic’s breakthrough DTS (Data Transfer Software) system that automates meter calibration to the camera-in-use and expanded Cine features that put these meters in a class of their own. Each meter features a distinctive, signature-color rubber surround and name badge for the flash brand it controls.

Flash Triggering with Phottix Strato II Protocol products
The L-478DR-PX flash control screen allows selection of a single group or a combination of groups for flash brightness measurement. The F-number value for the light being measured appears in a central area on the screen as well as over respective group selection button. [click to continue…]

Award-winning photographer Bobbi Lane is a Phottix favorite. In the first in a series of videos, she demonstrates how the interaction within the Phottix system helps photographers create beautiful and creative studio portraits by putting more control directly into their hands. With the Odin transmitter, you can adjust the lighting right from the camera, eliminating the need to break your focus on your shoot, and leaving you more time to concentrate on the subject at hand.

The Phottix Indra series, the Mitros+ and the Odin – a winning combination with limitless possibilities.

Phottix has always been a proud supporter of the Gulf Photo Plus show in Dubai – possibly the world’s best photography educational event. This year Phottix and Sigma team up to sponsor Sara Lando’s How to Make Ideas Happen free seminar at GPP, Tuesday, February 9 at 7pm.

What will the multi-talented Italian photographer Sara Lando cover?

Where do ideas come from? Most people don’t think of themselves as “creative”, but creativity is a muscle that can be whipped into shape: all you need is a little bit of will power and a blueprint.
The blueprint is on us: in this special event, Sara will talk about practical steps you can take to find inspiration for your next photo shoot, turn those ideas into a plan and that plan into compelling images.

The emphasis will be on not letting limited resources limit your vision: resourcefulness, ingenuity and experimentation will become part of your toolbox by the end of this fast paced talk.
Then you will watch as Sara puts her suggestions into practice during the session with a live demo, using Phottix flashes and Sigma lenses to create a compelling image on stage right in front of you.
