Again, quick, easy and reliable.

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've used the Odins in both ETTL and manual mode, and love them.

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 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!

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.

After researching Pocket Wizards, Cyber Commander, Radio Poppers, etc., I decided to get the Phottix Odin. I've been using this trigger for a few months now, indoors and outdoors, with and without light modifiers, on the floor and in trees, and here's what I think are the pros and cons. I didn't include price since that's debatable.

Pros:
+ Its a radio trigger, so there's no need for line-of-sight and no worries outdoors in sunlight.
+ Range seems good; I used it up to 30 feet. Then again, all of these triggers can easily handle this range with Radio Poppers being the clear winner in terms of long distance.
+ Works with 580exII, 580ex, 480exII, etc.
+ Supports TTL.
+ Supports manual.
+ Supports a mix of TTL and manual. Yes, set some lights to TTL and some to manual and they all get along.
+ Can control the flash power for speedlites when set to manual, and flash compensation for speedlites set to TTL.
+ Supports high speed sync (shoot faster than 1/250 sec) with dedicated button to enable/disable it.
+ Has a test button that fires each speedlite (or studio strobe if connected)
+ Backwards compatible with the Strato II receivers*
+ Supports up to 3 groups.
+ Can disable individual groups so that the lights do not fire.
+ Very simple to use interface. Just connect it to the hotshoe of your camera and go. You can learn how to use everything in less than 5 minutes without a manual.

Cons:
- Only supports up to 3 groups. You can do a lot with 3 groups, but having more is nice.
- Can only control power in 1-stop increments; and this is a huge negative of mine. I also use studio strobes so this is a joke. (Hoooray! 1/3 stop increments added in firmware 1.
