So finally I went from 30 feet to 300 feet in same surroundings!

Many of my PW associates have poked fun of this product. but I think it's because they spent more than twice as much for LESS functionality.
Bill Ziady
I've used the Odins in both ETTL and manual mode, and love them.

Verified Purchase
I have a Canon 7D with a 580EX II flash. Tomorrow I'm returning my two PocketWizard FlexTT5s. I've replaced them with Phottix's Odin TTL system. Here's why:

1. The Flexes offer only very limited access to the camera's External Flash menu system. The only options you can access are the flash exposure compensation (FEC) and the type of TTL II (evaluative versus average). For what it's worth, both of my radios had PW's latest firmware (6.000) and I contacted their support department for advice. It took them less than a business day for them to reply that I would also need to buy an AC3 zone controller for this.
2. I can't put the Flexes on a standard tripod quick release plate. The male hot shoe beneath the Flex gets in the way of the screw in the tripod head or quick release plate. This is important for me because I usually travel with only one standard tripod and a Joby Focus so I need to be able to use either one to hold my flash when it's off camera.
3. In my setup, the range of Flexes was just about 90-92 feet.
4. The flash would only fire 1 in 3-4 shots at 45-50 feet when the remote Flex was hidden behind a small bush. I did not try to use the AC5 RF soft shield metallic sock because, though it might have extended my range it would not have solved problems 1 and 2.

Just so that I give you a point of reference, I expected my remote TTL flash trigger system to at least work as my flash does when it is in the hot shoe on the camera or connected to the camera via a TTL cable like the Promaster. I want to have access to the same menu options so that I can set these controls from my camera's LCD screen.

The Phottix Odin TTL Flash does all of this for the ETTL II mode, but it does it wirelessly.

I'm ready to eBay my pocket wizards. I can exercise much more control with the ODINs than the PW system, plus I don't have to deal with the interference problems using the canon 580EX.

I've used the Odins in both ETTL and manual mode, and love them. Only downside is I can't trigger them using the sekonics light meter (which I could with the PW units).

It is great to be able to put the flash units inside a softbox and not touch them again due to the amount of control you get using the Odin transmitter. With the pocket wizards, if I wanted to experiment with flash settings, I had to open up the softbox and fumble round in poor light, with the Odins you can do whatever you want remotely.

Also, they fire the flash unit every time. With the PW, the flash would frequently fail to fire due to interference.

I'm reluctant to gush about this trigger system as I have only used it a half dozen times. But in all cases, they have worked perfectly. There are about a bazillion wireless trigger systems out there, but this setup is the holy grail I've been waiting for. My needs are fairly specific in that I want to use flash off camera, with high sync, and full manual control. Until now, the Radiopopper system was the only thing that could achieve this for me. Only negative for me was in the RP system you have to have a flash unit mounted on the camera to control the slave manually (and use HSS). RP makes smaller trigger devices but you lose the HSS.
Enter Odin. A compact convenient trigger/controller that is dead easy to use. You can set your slave flash to TTL or manual mode with a couple of button presses, even adjust the flash zoom! My first use was a family session. It was a very windy day so my Elinchrom Quadra + soft lighter combo was out. I decided to give the Odin a try and simply put a flash/receiver on a stand high camera right, set the controller to +1 TTL and started shooting. I could not believe how consistent it was, even with some backlight. The speed and ease in which this was put to use was perfect for my situation.
Next was some use with a modifier. Since it was nearly sunset, I knew a speed light would be powerful enough for the job. This time I shot manual mode with the slave flash inside a softlighter. Fired a test shot, made a couple of tweaks on the controller and I was ready to shoot. Again, quick, easy and reliable.

I will say though that I am on my second unit. My first one kept getting stuck on full power and I was not able to adjust. No problems with this one.

With as versatile as this unit is, I really don't see how Canon or Nikon can ignore making a radio system of their own. This thing is a wedding photographers dream!

About 4 years ago I started to shoot OFF CAMERA Flash. First I invested in Canon in fared Speedlite Transmitter ST-E2d. It was pretty limited because Flash unit had to be in direct sight. About year later I switched to Pocket Wizard TT5 and TT1. It worked great on short distances indoor under 20 feet and outdoor 25-35 feet max range. One's a while I really wanted to back away further and TT1 and TT5 didn't pick up signal what so ever, so that was very frustrating. I read so much about 'noise issue that Speed lights 580 EX and 580 EXII were having. Some wanted to put until away from actual 580 Flash other suggested to put a shield on top of Flash, but I don't have time to do that, I needed a system that works better.

Finally I decided to give Phottix Odin a try and as soon as I opened the box I was so happy with how it looked. 2 minutes later I put 580 EX II on tripod and ran outside to test range. 30 feet distance solid, 50 feet solid, 100 feet solid, than I backed so far away that I was not able to see tripod stand with flash I say 300-400 feet away and every time I pushed shutter on camera I was able to see small blue flash light :))) Range is HUGE!!!!

So finally I went from 30 feet to 300 feet in same surroundings! Never had to read manual took me 5 minutes to play with system and I was changing settings on the fly. NOTE:: if you are Canon 430 EX user range with Pocket Wizard will be 2x better than with 580 because 430 have different frequency. And if you're 580 EX or 580 EX II owner and looking with TTL and much bigger range, this system is it! I knew that Radio Poppers would give me good range however I really didn't want to control other flashes with 580 flash messing with ratios.

So far between Pocket Wizard (for Canon) Radio Poppers and Phottix Odin Phottix Odin is my favorite.
