Following its successful launch earlier this year, Phottix is delivering on its promise to provide the very best system available, with the release of its brand new Odin II TTL Flash Trigger - now available for Sony cameras.

The Odin II allows more control than ever before. The controls are logical, simple to use, and allow extremely fast adjustments. You can now control five channels or groups of lights at the touch of a button, in TTL Mode or in a combination of full manual mode and TTL - the choice is yours.

The Odin II for Sony is also backward-compatible with the original Odin system, Phottix Mitros Speedlights, the award-winning Indra360 and Indra500 TTL Studio lights.

A total of 32 channels can be used. Channels 5 to 32 use the full functionality of the Odin II receiver, including a user-set digital ID for the ultimate in secure triggering. Users can remotely control Speedlight zoom settings, providing the perfect coverage from a wide angle to a spot light. When shooting with the Phottix Indra360/500 series, the Odin II transmitter also offers remote modelling light control and full light ratio controls.

For creative photographers, there's also High Speed Sync with TTL flashes and Overdrive Sync with manual, enabling flash photography at up to 1/8000 second. The newly added AF assist light also makes autofocus a breeze in dimly lit locations. An additional ten custom functions allow users to customise the Odin II, including switching on/off the audible beep, screen brightness, an AF Illuminator function and the ODS system control functionality, as well as a full factory reset should you need it.

Available NOW, Odin II for Sony is priced at 160.
