There are 2 types of Hypersync, the one we are talking about here which the Odin do is the tail method. They don't do the Peak method like PocketWizard can to some degree.

HyperSync™ is a trademark of a PW sync retiming function. Odin's don't do HyperSync at all to any degree as they have no way of adjusting sync timing.

All thats happening here is that you're using the HSS timing generated by the camera and transmitting it.

HSS timing existed long before PW started to adjust the timing of this, and with Canon HSS in particular it is triggered so far before the shutter starting to open that there is still a significant loss associated with it when using it as described.

Using an Odin transmitter rather than a Strato II would be far more beneficial than any sort of hacking as pointed out.

ZA07 firmware

Do you use the ZA07 firmware to update both the transmitter and receiver?

Thanks.

so how should I go about testing? I still haven't had a chance to take my strobe out (9 month old consumes all my time lol). Do i keep the Odin transmitter and receiver in ETTL mode with hypersync enabled, or manual?

How did you go?, be good to know what sort of results you get with the Flashpoint strobe.

Phottix are releasing their own flash very soon so I'm not sure they would be all that concerned about YongNuo.

At least the Phottix shouldn't be a gamble with your money.

it would be nice...especially if the pricing is right....instead of paying $300 for a used 580 EX, it would be nice to get two phottix TTL flashes :-) )(one can hope right?)

Time to appeal to the wisdom of all the POTN Odin users.
I have odins and have used then to generally trigger my elinchrom stobes and my 580exII and 430exI. The problem comes in when I try to use my Sekonic 358 flash meter. The meter will read correctly for the elinchrom strobes but for some reason will not read the 580 or 430 correctly with the odin triggering the flash.
I set up the camera on manual 1/200th -- F4.0 -- ISO200. Triggered the 580 via the Odin at 1/16 manual. The flash meter was set to 1/200th and ISO200. The F stop came back at F4.0. Then triggered the flash at 1/1 manual with same camera settings. The picture was overexposed but the light meter still read F4.0?? Dropped the Odin power setting to 1/128th and the flash meter still read F4.0 but the picture was very dark. I can visually see the flash power changing as I change the settings.
I have the 580exII on ETTL mode. I tried Manual on the flash but same issue.
The meter is set to wireless evaluative mode. So that should be the correct mode according to the manual. Plus that mode works fine with the flash by itself and no Odin attached.
Any ideas on what is happening???
Thanks in advance--
