I think I might pick up a set of these odins... But if i don't really like that you can only adjust in full stops.


Always do right, this will gratify some people and astonish the rest.

It's only in manual mode and it's not that bad! ;)

I am sure that Phottix is listening to what their customers are saying and there will be a fix for this soon...

Guys, sometimes when I zoom in from TCU, the range 70mm - 105mm doesn't change. You can notice that because you don't hear the flash itself zooming.
It looks like the 70mm in the TCU is already the 105mm in the flash.

It's all good when i first turn on the devices but if a let the flahses or camera going in the sleep mode and then awake it stays like said above.

Has it happened to to anyone?

Maybe it's adjusting for the crop factor. You can try disabling C.Fn-09 on the 580exII, then try zooming it again from the TCU.

I had mine for two months now and I loving it, very easy to use, takes all the controls out of the camera body and works with the 420EX...

All you need for the PocketWizard TT1 is a $70 AC3 zone controller to go on top. Then you can use any of 3 groups in ETTL or Manual.

small note to add to the above...
the remote flashes need to stay in ETTL mode... the AC3 can switch them to manual and you control them from the AC3... but flashes on your TT5s need to be in ETTL to control manually from AC3

I'll see about this.

Thank you.

Ok - so far so good. The Odins seem to work very dependably. I do have a question about adding a manual flash to the mix. I understand I can add a Strato receiver to trigger a manual flash. However there seems to be a different Strato receiver for Canon and Nikon. I have an Odin system for Canon but want to trigger a Nikon in manual mode in addition to 2 Canon flashes triggered by Odin receivers in TTl mode.

Is there really any difference between the Strato receivers labeled for Canon or Nikon? If so what do I need?

The Stratos have a flash wake up feature, so only a Canon reciever will wake up a Canon flash. But you should still be able to simply fire most any flashes with the Canon receiver.

I'm not sure if the Canon Transmitter (Strato or Odin) will fire the Nikon receiver at all. So you would definitely want to check that with Phottix before buying a Nikon receiver.

Also be sure to get the Strato II as they are the ones which you can assign groups to.

Well guys, seems like we are in for a disappointment, this is the "Official" reply on the Phottix journal page

Phottix Journal February 20, 2012 at 3:30 pm

I understand. One-third adjustments are being researched – that is not something that can be accomplished with a firmware upgrade.

I would suggest we all post replies on the journal, just to let these guys know how we feel about this
