We've been digging around under the hood of the Nikon Z50. We look at what Nikon's first APS-C mirrorless camera does and doesn't offer.
Flash manufacturer Phottix has announced it will introduce an Odin ll transmitter for Pentax users in April. Designed with ‘direct cooperation’ from Pentax engineers, Odin claims the trigger has been extensively tested on the 645Z medium format camera and the company’s flagship K-1 DSLR. It also said to be compatible with the K-5 and K-7 models.
The Odin ll transmitter will allow users to control the Phottix Indra studio heads as well as the Juno manual hotshoe flash unit. The press release doesn’t mention the Mitros + TTL flash unit, though it should be able to control that off-camera via the Odin system—if not via the hotshoe. Users will also be able to use Strato ll, Atlas ll and the Ares ll receivers to control and trigger third party flash units.
As with other Odin ll transmitters, the Pentax model will offer 32 channels and five groups with which to control off-camera heads via a wireless 2.4GHz radio system, and high speed sync will be supported with shutter speeds of up to 1/8000sec.
The Odin ll for Pentax will cost $140, and orders are being accepted now for April delivery. For more information, visit the Phottix website.
Bringing the power and control of the Phottix ecosystem to Pentax users
Phottix’s flagship Odin II TTL Flash Triggering system has expanded to include a new transmitter control unit (TCU) compatible with Pentax cameras. Developed with direct cooperation from Pentax engineers at Ricoh Imaging in Japan, the Phottix Odin II for Pentax brings the power, control, and ease of use of the Phottix TTL lighting ecosystem to Pentax users. Tested extensively with the Pentax 645Z Medium Format DSLR Camera and the ground-breaking Pentax K-1 DSLR, the Phottix Odin II gives Pentax users more creative control over their art.
Harness the Power of the Phottix Ecosystem
The Phottix Lighting Ecosystem System offers solutions for every photographer, from lighting minimalists to studio professionals. With the Odin II for Pentax, users can trigger and control the power level of the Indra 500TTL Battery Powered Studio Light in both TTL and Manual modes as well as adjust the modeling lamp all from the top of their camera. Also compatible are the newly introduced Juno Manual Speedlight and receivers from the Phottix Odin, Strato II, Atlas II and Ares II flash trigger systems.
"The Odin II for Pentax enables us to take our 645Z from the studio to on-location! Even in full sun, the Odin II’s HSS support allows us to Take control of ambient light and get amazing results from our 645Z and Indra 500 combo!"

Tame the Sun and Ambient Light
The Odin II allows Pentax users the ability to use High Speed Sync and shoot at speeds of up to 1/8000s on compatible cameras. When paired with the Phottix Indra500 TTL, shutter speeds are no longer a limitation.
Enjoy an Interface Built for Photographers By Photographers
The Odin II for Pentax user interface was built off feedback from photographers across the globe. Features such as individual buttons for each group – A, B, C, D, E, and an analog thumbwheel give users quick and direct access to their strobes from the top of their camera when they need it most.
Stand Out from the Crowd
The Odin II features 32 channels as well as a Digital ID function to completely eliminate interference and outside triggering. Digital ID is a four digit code that secures the connection between compatible Phottix products and will only allow triggering signals from products using the same four-digit Digital ID code. Now there is far less to worry about when shooting in crowded situations like sporting events or concerts.
Price and Availability:
The Odin II for Pentax retails for $139.95 and is available for preorder now at major retailers and will start shipping to customers in April.
* Indra 500TTL compatibility requires a free firmware update available on Phottixus.com
