We’ve received many questions about the Phottix Odin TTL Trigger for Nikon and the new Nikon D750. “The Odin doesn’t work correctly, is new firmware about to be released?” being most common.
After much research and testing our engineering team has found the hot shoe on the new Nikon D750 is different dimensions than previous hot shoes – being longer in the front (See comparison between D700 and D750 above). This causes issues with the pins of the Phottix Odin hot shoe lining up correctly with the Nikon D750 hot shoe. The Odin isn’t alone – some of the venerable Nikon SB series have issues working properly on the D750.
In short – as the hot shoe size has changed there is little Phottix can do at present. A DIY fix is possible – buy adding a sliver of cardboard to the front of the D750 hot shoe to help keep the Odin TCU in proper alignment.
Hi, adding extra cardboards is unnecessary as I’ve found a technique that works every time. Connect the Odin to the hotshot and tighten everything up. Take hold of the transmitter unit and give it a gentle anti-clockwise twist – this seems to be sufficient to line the pins up & I’ve never had any problems triggering since I started doing this
That’s weird. I was using that exact combo yesterday without any problem!
this answers my question. can somebody send an instructional video on how to fix the issue? otherwise my odin is just paperweight at this time 🙁
