    This is great for Sony. They have these great cameras but the lack of ecosystem makes it really hard for a pro to invest in them. I hope more companies make them a priority.

    “Similar firmware adding Sony and Odin II compatibility to the Indra360 TTL strobes should also be available in the coming months.”

    Statements from Phottix means 1 year or 2. I stopped investing in them, and went to Godox.

    and when will you make that flash system for olympus/panasonic?

      Hi olympus,

      I don’t think Phottix have announced any plans for further systems at this stage.

      That’s not to say they may not possibly be working on something.

    If you happen to run your studio on Macs and really don’t have access to PCs, forget Phottix flashes and studio lights. Their firmware updates are buggy at best and I have just received an email from their CEO that they will not be support the Mac OS due to “issues with OSX”, for the time being.

    Yes, the issue is their programmers don’t know how to write a firmware update that works with OSX. Generally, their firmware update instructions lack clarity as well.

      Hi Robert,

      Yes Phottix posted a message about this here on their blog just before the Indra firmware updates.

      Though it remains to be seen whether Godox can provide any better for Mac users either. They may come to the same conclusion for the moment.

      It may not be ideal, though getting a cheap windows netbook or tablet etc just for this may be the way to go.

    “A built-in AF assist light makes autofocus shooting fast and accurate in lower lighting.”
    I thought Sony couldn’t use AF assist light with their new hotshoe or something.

      Hi Craig,

      Yes I noticed that. I’d say that text is likely copied over from the Canon and Nikon version transmitter more than anything.

      Its the mirrorless cameras that don’t use the speedlight style AF assist light, the Sony DSLR’s should still work with Odin II’s AF assist light.

      The AF assist light signal does not come through the hotshoe contacts on the Sony mirrorless cameras, so I doubt Phottix could make the AF light work with those cameras any more than anyone else has.

        In response to the AF assist light – I have an A99 and the assist light on the Odin II works with that quite well. Whether it’s anymore better than the built in assist light I have yet to test that out…

    Say if we have Odin II and Mitros+ flash for Canon and in near future should we invest into Odin II for Sony, can the Odin II for Sony be compatible or work with Mitros+ flash for Canon.

      Hi J.Juano,

      The larger Phottix Indra strobes have Canon, Nikon, and Sony radio slave modes built into the one strobe, though I don’t think the Mitros+ do.

      You might want to check with Phottix though to be sure, I may have possibly missed an update.

    Hi J.Juano,

    I posed this question after the announcement of Odin. Below is a copy of my support ticket.

    User | Sep 22, 2016 6:53:50 PM | Open | Support

    Hello, I currently have Odin transmitters and receivers as well as Mitros+ flash for Nikon. I recently got a Sony A7S2. If I purchase an Odin II for Sony, can it trigger the Mitros+ Nikon flashes? Thank you, -E.
    Admin Phottix Support | Sep 27, 2016 1:01:05 PM | Replied | Support

    Thank you for contacting us. The Odin II for Sony is compatible only with the Phottix Mitros+ for Sony, it is not compatible with Mitros+ for Nikon. The Odin/ Odin II doesn’t work cross-platform. Thank you.
