The Phottix Odin TTL Trigger consists of an on-camera transmitter and control unit (TCU) and receiver units for compatible hot shoe flashes. The Odin offers photographers four wireless channels and three flash control group designations. Flashes can be controlled in traditional Canon TTL ratio modes A:B with EV +/- adjustments of three stops.
What makes the Phottix Odin unique is the ability to designate groups in TTL/Mixed mode. Individual groups, A, B, C, can also be controlled in TTL mode with EV +/- adjustments. Groups can also be set to Manual mode, adjusting power levels remotely, or turned off.
Flash head zoom can be set to be dynamically adjusted as photographers adjust their lenses. Flash zoom can also be easily adjusted manually and set statically from 24 to 105 mm. The Phottix Odin system will also trigger compatible non-TTL flashes and studio strobes.
The Phottix Odin TTL Flash Trigger for Canon is compatible with Phottix Strato 4-in1 and Phottix Strato II Multi 5-in-1 Wireless Triggers. Current Phottix users will have no problem adding the Odin to their current triggering systems. As the world of cameras and flashes is always changing the Phottix Odin system can be upgraded when needed using the built-in USB ports.
The four-channel, 2.4 GHz, transmitter and receiver units work at ranges of more than 100 meters and accept AA batteries.

I'm a casual photographer who is not using this professionally. My first shock was the tiny, tiny manual it came with. As a novice who has never used a wireless trigger it was scary. But despite the fact, I set the receiver to channel 1, turned the camera, flash and transceiver on, waited for the flash to load and pressed the yellow TEST button. That's it! Now I use my flash more than before, I couldn't stand it before but now its a joy.
