    Works on Phottix Odin
    Can not get it to work on my iShoot PT-04.

    On a parallel note, even on Odin if i use Manual mode, i could not get a meter reading from any of my 3 flash meters since this unit (and the HVL-F20AM ancestor ) since these seem to be emitting pulses of light rather than a single flash burst even in manual mode on triggers that allow it to work.

    To me and i will be a little harsh, this unit is only good as a wireless control unit on cameras that allow WL and that don't have a built-in flash to do so.
    On cameras that have a built-in flash, using this as a controller instead of the built-in flash induces a lag of 1-2 seconds before shutter can be released and flash comes into play.
