Phottix Odin TTL Flash Trigger for Nikon cameras and flashes

Phottix Odin TTL Flash Trigger for Nikon cameras and flashes

We get a lot of requests for a Nikon-compatible version of the Phottix Odin TTL Flash Trigger. Rest assured – it is coming.

When it’s released we want it to work and not make you inadvertent beta-testers, forcing everyone to download firmware upgrade after firmware upgrade.

Is it worth the wait? Our testers say yes. Stay tuned for more information as it is available.

Awesome! I’d love to be a beta-tester! My friend has been using the Canon version for a couple of months now and he loves them.. hasn’t skipped a beat, and thats saying something for press photographers like us! We push get to the limit daily!

Not that I’m obsessed or anything, but I check on a every-couple-of-days basis. I’m trying to be patient, but please hurry. Patience isn’t my strong suit 🙂

looks like the nikon version will have a focus assist light, I wonder, will the canon version be updated to incorporate this useful feature?

I hope it can be release early, cheaper and more stable. We waited for so long long time……….

Any date? Preorder? I wanted to buy pocket wizards, but Nikonrumors brought me here. Now I’m unsure if I shall wait or not.

looks like these guys doing the same PW did for Nikon users. keep on delaying Nikon version 🙁

Yes was also about to go PW months ago but prepared to wait… and wait! I guess that you don’t want to announce new products until there are supplies available in the marketplace. But as Adrian asks – will there be preordering?

I’m a pro shooter and recently switched to Nikon from Canon for the dynamic range of the D800. The **only** real regret I had was giving up my Odins and I literally considered carrying an entire other set of gear just to be able to use them. Is there any kind of notification list for when these become available? Man do I miss them. These dumb triggers make my ass twitch.

The D800 with Odin trigger…. Now that is a sexy picture!

I have been beta testing these beauties for a few weeks now, they are awesome! I’m looking forward to sharing my complete thoughts and images created using the Nikon Odin Triggers.

What was your address again, David? And could you let me know when you’ll be away from your home? I think I need to send you to the store to get some milk.

Getting pretty excited on this. A Canadian distributor of Phottix is now taking pre-orders only. Have placed mine for a swack of them (ok, only one trans and 4 receivers), but it seems like a swack of them 🙂

I am struggling with power control in the manual mode with my latest Odin and SB600 flash. While the zoom function is fully activated in the maunal mode ( Both Flash and the Odin TCU ) unable to change the power settings. Is it a lack of understanding or someproblem with both flash and the TCU ?? Can i get an advice ??
