No Manaul Control of Canon Speedlight with Phottix Odin
Apr 1, 2013


I just purchased an Phottix Odin/2 receiver kit today for my Canon 5D2 MkII. The system works as expected with the speedlights working in ETTL mode.

HOWEVER: I have thus far been unable to control the output of the Speedlights from the Odin TCU control unit. For example if I set all three groups to "M" (manual) mode and then try to vary the power level with the +/- buttons on the TCU the light output of the Speedlights doesn't change at all.

This situation is surprising (alarming) given that the following description of the Odin functionality appears on the company's website:

What makes the Phottix Odin™ unique is the ability to designate groups in TTL/Mixed mode. Individual groups, A, B, C, can also be controlled in TTL mode with EV +/- adjustments. Groups can also be set to Manual mode, adjusting power levels remotely, or turned off.

As far as I can see there is no way to manually set the speedlight output remotely through the Odin TCU.

If anyone knows differently, please correct me.

PS: I have upgraded to the ver 1.2 firmware and the Odins work as expected in TTL mode.

Canon EOS 5D Mark II
