Phottix Mitros, Odin for Canon and a Panasonic camera

Hi 

I have a Phottix Mitros flash for Canon which I can trigger in manual on my Panasonic GX7. I also have a Odin receiver for Canon.

Can the v6 trigger the Mitros/Odin combo using manual settings from a Panasonic camera? Note I tried using an Odin transmitter and that didn't work - but the fitting's very tight and I don't think that it's mounting properly in the hot shoe. Because the flash itself fits and works, I probably just need a transmitter that fits better, and I wonder if the Cactus v6 might be a better alternative.

Thanks

Dan

  • Hello Dan
    With Cactus V6, you will be able to remote power of the Phottix Mitros for Canon through the Panasonic GX7. The design of the V6 is to fit for any cameras that use standard hotshoe or PC sync port. I believe it is a good alternative to Odin. In fact, I knew many people switched their flash system to Cactus. =)

    All the best,

    Note, though, that one V6 on its own will not be able to trigger your Mitros/Odin combo, since the V6 is not compatible with the Odin receiver.

    You'll need two V6, to get a working system for your flash.
  • Thanks for the remind, Class A.  ;)

    @redbone, FYI we regularly mount V6 on a Panasonic Lumix GH2 and GX1. So the fit is nice and secure.

    To help us better help you, always state the exact firmware version installed on your Cactus device(s), such as: "1.1.013", "FUJ.1.002", "v.103".

    For the time being, Cactus V6 (MK1) running on firmware version 2.1.001 can be triggered by a V6 II (MK2) running on Multi-brand HSS firmware (e.g. 1.1.013) and not by X-TTL firmware versions: PEN.A.001 and OLY.A.001.  No schedule has been released yet. 

    Cactus RF60X / RF60 Firmware versions A01 and A02 currently ONLY works with PEN.A.001 and OLY.A.001.  Other "A" version of X-TTL firmware will be released soon. For both Multi-brand HSS and X-TTL firmware versions (FUJ, SIG, SON), install firmware version 103 / 205 on your RF60X / RF60.

    Cactus RF60 is now an off-camera TTL flash with firmware version 205 or later!

    Metz M400 (for Fujifilm) is now supported on the Cactus V6 II (HSS and TTL).

  • Thanks for your replies. I've ordered a v6 and an RF60, but I will also order another v6 for my Phottix Mitros flash since the Odin receiver won't work
