#3 is probably my biggest concern considering the pro-level features for the system. I would like the confidence in knowing that if one component fell down a flight of stairs, they would still be operational. They are equal or better in build quality to other market-leaders, but that's not saying much. Still, I know I can drop them from a table or have them kicked across the room and they would probably be fine. The overall build-quality is excellent. Other gear Phottix produces looks to be of quality and well thought-out.
Mind you, these are VERY minor negatives and the least amount from other systems I researched. Now, onto the good stuff!
Simplicity. This is a professional-level system which when used, will be used intensly. The user-interface on the controller is incredibly easy to use. Adjusting functions is fast and intuitive. The digital controller is an absolute joy to use with a backlight if photographing in dark places. There is no guess-work when setting up the system or figuring out why your triggers aren't firing. All switches and buttons are labeled and understandable.
Functionality. I don't know any system that has as much functionality as the Odin system. Using channels in TTL, Manual or a combination of the two.. Turning off individual channels. HSS? Yes, that in there. All easily controllable.
Performance. No misfires. Great range. AMAZING battery life! I left a trigger on by accident and over 24-hours later, it was still blinking! This was after a half-day of good useage.
Future-Proof. The components all come with micro-USB ports for firmware upgrades. And Phottix regularly puts out updates to help with compatibility for cameras and bug fixes. And it's really the former at this point as I haven't had any issues in conjunction with my Canon 5D Mark II. Which is 4-year old technology. I know the 1DX and 5D Mark III needed updates as Canon changed the flash-programming with those cameras. At this point, both those cameras work fine with this system as far as I know.
Backing. As a professional, I don't want to depend on on equipment that has poor support. That's indicative of a company with a philosophy that doesn't have long-term prospects either. I am a professional and I only work with professionals. In fact, I'd rather rent good equipment rather than buy junk if its cost-effective. And now that we are on the subject of costs.
Value. This is not the least-expensive system. Nor the most expensive. But it leans in that direction. However, when you take in all the positives of the system, it's of incredible value. If you are a beginning to intermediate-level amateur that needs remote triggering once a month or so, this system may not be for you. But if you get paid in any way for your photography or want more control over your flashes remotely, then this is a simple decision. The 2-Receiver pack is nice as you are basically getting $50 off if purchased separately.
Improvements. The only way I can see this system improved is for Phottix to build devices to natively support Einstein and Profoto strobe systems. With their upgradable systems, I CAN'T see Phottix not doing this. While not a huge issue, it would add the tremendous convenience of controlling flash-power remotely. They would become a market-leader in no-time if they did.
I'm incredibly happy with the system and look to growing it with more triggers and other lighting gear with Phottix. Amazing.
I finally settled on these and find them super easy to adjust on the fly and very readable. They are starting to get up into the higher pricing bracket but they also offer alot of the options in that bracket.
I use these with a Canon 5d Mk2 and a couple Canon flashes.
If you're planning on investing in some triggers do some research, the technology is always changing and its hard to say what a good buy is today if it will still be so tomorrow
I have a Canon 6D, and this product works seamlessly with the camera.
It worked right out of the box, once I put the AA batteries (included) in the proper orientation in the receiver.
I haven't put it to any tough test yet, but took my first wireless off-camera flash photos this afternoon.
I would highly recommend this product to take your strobe photography to the next level in both creative expression and ease of use.
