Video: Michael Zelbel, the Phottix Odin and HSS on Location Shanghai

April 30, 2013

Phottix Pro Team Shooter and Good Light Magazine Editor Michael Zelbel visited China recently. Team Phottix caught up with him and arranged a shoot in Shanghai. Michael was shooting with the Phottix Odin TTL Flash Trigger for Canon and Phottix Mitros TTL Flash for Canon, and HSS for a little fill light  The softbox is a Phottix 60x90cm Easy-Up Umbrella Softbox (Michael did not have the new Multi Boom 16″ when the video was shot),

What does Michael say about the video:

Let me tell you upfront: This video is not about using your speedlight outdoor as strong main light so that your photos look like surreal stuff from another planet, which is obviously located in the a multi-sun solar system. It is also not about going into the desert and trying to knock out harsh midday sun and overpower it magically with a flash. Nope. This is about adding a touch of light to your subject outdoor. Just enough to make it beautifully stand out from your background.

I understand the Odin trigger will fire the Strato II Multi receiver but will that type of setup work for High Speed Sync? I’m shooting with Canon.
Thanks in advance!

@Jon: HSS is only supported when you use Odin receivers.
