Photo accessories company Phottix has today announced imminent availability of its Odin TTL flash trigger for most Nikon digital SLRs.
The Phottix Odin first shipped for Canon cameras last September, and after a slight delay for testing with the D800 and D4 DSLRs, will be available for Nikon shooters from tomorrow. The Odin is a 2.4GHz wireless system offering both TTL and manual flash triggering, and provides for four wireless channels and three flash control groups. Flash output can be controlled either with +/-3 EV of flash exposure compensation per group in 1/3 EV steps in TTL mode, or with manual power control in 1/3 EV steps. Other features include automatic or manual remote flash head zoom adjustment, high speed sync up to 1/8,000 second, and second curtain sync. The Odin is also backwards-compatible with Strato 4-in-1 and Strato II Multi 5-in-1 wireless triggers.
Phottix's Odin TTL wireless flash strobe includes a receiver (left, under flash) and transmitter (right, on hotshoe).

The Odin comes with both a TCU transmitter and receiver, four AA batteries (two apiece for transmitter and receiver), PC sync and 3.5mm cables, a 6.5mm adapter, USB cable (for firmware updates), lanyard, and instructions on CD. Compatible flashes include the Nikon SB-400, SB-600, SB-800, SB-900, and SB-910. Note that the Nikon D70 and D70s camera bodies are not compatible. Pricing is set at US$350 for the kit, and extra receivers can be purchased for US$145. More details on the Phottix website!
