I'd order from Amazon if I were you (make sure it's sold or fulfilled BY Amazon and not a 3rd party) for the sole purpose of their second to none return policy in case you decide they are not for you.

I see both the transmitter and receivers on Amazon.

Yea, I usually like to order things from Amazon, but there's the 17th Street Photo, the Imagingworld, Phototech, and Green Mountain Camera -- all fulfilled by Amazon. To go with the best consumer rating, it'd be Green Mountain Camera, but I've never heard of them before... Probably makes no difference since they're all fulfilled by Amazon...

^^^As long as it's fulfilled by Amazon, you'll be fine.

Picked mine up from Unique Photo (uniquephoto dot com). Based out of NJ. Great customer service, had a little shipping issue and they kept constant communication and updates as to what was happening. Have not tested their return policy.

Just bought a set of Odins today to add to my Stratos, and I have one question.

If I'm running 2 strobes, one with the Odin receiver, and one with the Strato receiver, will both fire in High Speed Sync?

Highspeed Sync requires ETTL to work, which will only work between an Odin transmitter and receiver.
The Stratos just gets a dumb single to fire, there is no ETTL communication.

Gotcha. This runs counter to what the salesman told me today.

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.

Thanks! :) This was the solution to that issue! :D

1/8000 with my cheap-as-dirt strobes. Quite a drop in power, but it'll be plenty for open shade in daylight. I'm even getting 1/200 with HSS turned off. Best I could get with the Stratos was 1/160.

Is anyone using monolights as well?

I would like to hear some Hypersync results with different lights and cameras.

- Connect monolight to Odin receiver via sync cord
- Set Odin TCU on camera to HSS mode
- Set camera over X-sync, start around 1/500th and work your way up.
- Set monolight to full power, or try lowest power too.
- Aim at a plain wall inside, and shoot. Look for fully lit frames without shutter curtain.

You can try this with fully manual speedlights as well.

I just checked and I can confirm SS of 1/8000th with no curtain showing on both my Einsteins and Alienbees. That's pretty awesome.
