Phottix has announced their much anticipated Odin II TTL Flash Triggers which add cutting edge functionality and features to their flagship trigger will be available for Canon & Nikon in early February. Phottix Odin II for Sony multi-interface shoe will be introduced in late spring 2016.
Unrivaled Control and Streamlined User Interface
The Odin II 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 in TTL Auto or Manual. Switch the 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.
High Speed Sync and OverDrive Sync
High Speed Sync with TTL flashes and OverDrive Sync with manual, wire-connected, studio-type flashes enable flash photography at up to 1/8000 second for creative aperture effects and action stopping. An AF assist light makes autofocus shooting sure and fast in lower lighting.
A range of custom functions including switching ON/OFF of audible beep, screen illumination, and AF Illuminator function allows customizing the Odin II for any application.
The Odin II system is compatible with the original Odin system, Phottix Mitros+ speedlights, Indra360 and Indra500 TTL Studio lights, Strato, Strato II receivers, and Atlas II in receiver mode. Firmware upgrades for the Phottix Mitros+ and Indra360/500 will soon be available to take advantage of the new features of the Odin II.

thanks for the heads up Brian, These will be a big step up for our Sony’s. It would be nice for Sony to come out with a set themselves to support the system. Im loving the A7RII, Ive been shooting Sony for 6 years now ever since I took a 25 year hiatus due to family issues. Going to sell the A99 and use an a6000 as a back up for now. Its tough getting started back up in this modern market as a photographer
I just ordered the new Odin II Flash Trigger Transmitter for Sony. It requires a firmware update for the Phottix MItros+ flashes, and I’m having an issue. Instructions say that two firmware files need to be upgraded: FDS and FIF. These files are both visible in the unzipped folder. However, when I click the “Software” prompt during the upgrade process, only the FDS file appears. Is this a problem? Or is this the only file we actually need? (BTW … I’m doing the upgrade on a PC laptop, not my Mac. I’m aware of the Mac firmware update issues.) Thanks!
Please check with Phottix. I’m on a Mac so I can’t answer.
Is the phottix Indra 360 TTL going to work with TTL using the Phottix Odin 1 trigger?
Hi Brian, I’m currently using Canon Odin II and Mitros+ with with my 1Dx and 5DIII, just purchased a a7II. If I purchase an Odin II for my Sony a7II can I use it to trigger my Mitros+ flashes for Canon? Thanks, Mike
That’s a question for Phottix. I’m guessing the Odin II for Sony it should trigger it, but only Phottix can tell you if features like TTL and HSS will work between brands.
Thanks for the quick reply Brian! From what I’ve just read, I can’t trigger my Canon Mitros+ flashes from the Sony Odin II. That’s very unfortunate as it would clearly make things simpler, even if I could fire them in manual only. Thanks again, great site Brian!
The issue is that Mitros+ is made for on-camera hotshoe TTL, which means each version needs to follow the flash protocols of that camera brand – and every one is different.
Universal only works with strobes not made to work on camera such as Profoto B1 and Profoto B2 since they use their own flash protocols – not dependent on camera brand. You just need the proper Air Remote.
Thanks Brian. My plan is to go with the Indra 500 which does just that, you can use it with Sony, Canon & Nikon.
Yup. Indra will work. Like Profoto there’s not different versions of the flash – just different triggers.
Hi Brian, I am planning to Cross Breed different brand of Lights. I have a Sony body, with 4 phottix flashes, with the proper ODIN 2 (SONY).
The question is, would I be able to trigger Something other than phottix using the CANON receiver by triggering from the SONY trigger (since there isnt a sony receiver)
It’s possible that the Odin Receiver for Canon might be able to trigger manual flashes – but it won’t give you TTL or HSS and it probably won’t work with Sony flashes.
How to set HSS on 360 using OdinII TTL for Sony…manual says cannot be done on light itself like the 500?
Can I use Canon speedlite 600EX II without receiver when I useing Odin II transmitter?
Will the Phottix Odin II work in HHS work with alienbees or white lighting studio flashes?
No. Only the Phottix flashes listed here.
