The Odin offers photographers four wireless channels and three flash control group designations. Flashes can be controlled in traditional Nikon TTL ratio modes A:B with EV +/- adjustments of three stops.
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.
Flash head zoom can be set to be dynamically adjusted as photographers adjust their lenses. Flash zoom can also be easily adjusted manually and set statically from 24 to 105 mm. The Phottix Odin system will also trigger compatible non-TTL flashes and studio strobes.

Thom Hogan posted the latest review on the brand new Nikon D3x and indeed a very thorough review IMHO. His take on the Nikon D3X and I quote, “the D3x produces excellent, best-of-class images, but that comes at a price that’s the highest of any existing DSLR. You’ll need really top notch lenses and technique to resolve that performance. Are you really ready for all that portends?”
