Finally! A TTL Radio Flash System for Canon That Actually Works!

Review: Phottix Odin TTL Flash Trigger for Canon


A couple of months ago I read an article on the Phottix Odin TTL Flash Trigger system for Canon. The article was followed by some very glowing personal reviews from photographers already using this system. But before I start talking about the Odins, I need to let off some steam; let me rant…

On the Dark Side

Prior to this, I had spent several years wrestling on and off with the PocketWizard MiniTT1 and FlexTT5 wireless system for Canon, trying to make them work (yes, several years. I know I’m crazy). I say “on and off” because when I found the time and energy, I set up several strobes on stands (580EX or EX II’s) to try to make the PocketWizard radios work consistently so that I could trust them on a job. What was consistent was the large number of misfires from these radios. Even with the radio interference sock (AC5 RF Soft Shield) covering each Speedlite, which is supposed to minimize the rf interference created by Canon’s flash, they hardly ever worked properly. By the way, stuffing your flash into a sock is a messy kluge and a total pain in the neck.

a segment of Jessica Hische's Work for Free diagram

I couldn’t help sharing this flow diagram from Jessica Hische. If you have ever been confronted by anyone who would like some photographs for free, and what photographer hasn’t, then you will appreciate this. Even if you are not a photographer, you will find this amusing.

All Out for Autism

Finishing the raceThis was a fantastic event hosted by New Balance and many New Canaan store owners, venders and individuals in support of autism. I was honored to be asked to photograph the two races and all the goings on and have uploaded a gallery of the images to my blog. Anyone interested in purchasing a print will be able to order online.

Thanks to Ron and Tina Rosenfeld and all the many event coordinators. Congratulations on a great event! And, as I understand it, the new outdoor exercise facility in Waveny Park will be going up soon.
