I received an e-mail from Phottix saying they are releasing a TTL version of the Phottix Stratto in the 4Q of 2012.

What do you think the differences will be between it and the Phottix Odin?

Just announced Strato TTL Flash Trigger
The Phottix StratoTM TTL Flash Trigger – the newest addition to ever-popular Strato series of flash triggers and wireless remotes.
The Strato TTL Flash Trigger provides an easy-to-use and affordable TTL flash triggering solution to photographers. High-speed and second curtain sync are supported in this 4-channel, 2.4 GHz transmitter and receiver set. Shoot at maximum shutter speeds of 1/8000 s. *
With the LCD display and quick-change buttons adjustments are fast and easy. Strato TTL versions for Canon, Nikon and Sony will be released during Q4 of 2012, adding another stellar option in Phottix’s flash trigger line-up.


Triggering hot shoe flashes is only the start of the Phottix Strato TTL’s abilities. The Strato TTL will also trigger studio lights as well as function as a wired and wireless shutter release. It’s easy to connect to light stands or other grip with a cold shoe and ? inch threaded lug.
The Strato TTL flash trigger is part of the ever-growing Phottix ecosystem and is compatible with the Phottix Strato I and Strato II Multi series of triggers as well as the Phottix Atlas II. The Strato TTL features a USB port for firmware upgrades. Don’t get left behind as camera and flash technology changes.
Strato TTL versions for Canon, Nikon and Sony will be released during Q4 2012 and Q1 2013, adding another stellar option in Phottix’s flash trigger line-up.

I keep waiting for one of these companies to add a focus beam assit light or a hot shoe on top of the transmitter to allow me to add a on camera flash and control my OC flashes for reception work. Unfortunately it doesn't look like these have it.

I've been trying to do this for a while. The only working method I have is another receiver controlling the AF assist unit.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but the Yongnuo YN-622C does all that.

Yep, I think the YN-622's fit the bill.. mine are still in NY.. hope I get them next week to play with!

And I have a 30ft ocf cord.. I'm going to try different configurations with the 2 units I got.


Godox/Flashpoint r2 system, plus some canon stuff.

The problem is I'm already invested in the Odin system.

Strange, I've noticed my 580ex/550ex/430ex focus assist kicking in occasionally. Are they not supposed to be doing that?

Edit: While using my Odins.

Yep, focus-assist works with the flash mounted on the Odin reciever.

Interesting, I didn't realize Yongnuo make a wireless set up. Thanks!

With the new ET-S3 not having a focus assist and the new 600rt's not being able to fire IR flashes like the 430's and 580's, there is a market for one of the companies like Phottix or Pocketwizard to come up with some cool stuff.

Sure you can mount a flash on top of many transmitters here, but it would be really nice to not have to so you could keep the on camera weight down while shooting. I think a lightweight hotshoe mounted trigger simular in size to the ET-E3 that could send both IR and RF signal at the same time would sell like hotcakes. It would be great if it could fire the new 600EX's as well as the older 580's and 430's without a reciever. They could sell RF recievers to add RF capability to those older 430's and 580's if needed too. Add a focus assist and we are golden.

So how is the Stratto TTL differ from the ODIN considering its cheaper price?
I'm holding my purchase of the ODIN until I see the specs and full description/function of the Stratto TTL.

EDIT: ALL TTL and No manual mode for any of the speedlights?
