I'm planning to expand my speedlite system next year. I like where the Phottix system is headed. I'm thinking about getting the Odin and a couple of Mitros flashes. Does anyone know if the Mitros has the receivers built in or will I have to get the new Mitros +? Any comments/reviews are appreciated. From what I've seen so far, it's a great system.
The Phottix Mitros speedlights don't have the built-in receivers other than optical TTL. The whole point of the Mitros+ is to introduce built-in receivers. That said, the Mitros+ looks to be pretty pricey for a third-party system. I have been using the Phottix Stratos II triggers for over a year now and can't speak highly enough about them, so I'm def a fan of Phottix, but surprised their new flashes are so pricey. You should definitely wait to see how the new YungNuo gear turns out for performance and price. I suspect they will be really well priced and hopefully as (or even more) solid as all of their previous gear.
This is an exciting period because the options for remote control of speedlights pretty much didn't exist at all, and now there are lots of options on the horizon. I'll be making the same decision after the YN release myself. My current setup works great, but I would love to have remote manual power control.
