The TURTLE SMART is a small and reliable TTL trigger for Nikon, Canon, Sony, Olympus and Panasonic cameras.
The TURTLE SMART is powerful enough to handle 2000 shots on a single charge. And you can use your standard USB cable to charge it.
Should you choose cable or synchronous optical LED connections – Turtle has the connector interface to handle both options. On the rear of Turtle is a connector interface for both cable and synchronous optical LED connections.
Full TTL mode compatible with several Sea&Sea, Inon, Ikelite, Subtronic underwater strobes, you can choose between fiber optic or sync cord control. The TURTLE SMART or the Mobie fits into most of the underwater housings.
It’s all up to you: switch between 1st or 2nd curtain mode for perfect rendering of motion. Also, sometimes you need flash power correction: not a problem, Turtle handles this as well…
With optical flash syncronization, you can take more pictures: no more overheating problem with the built in flash, no more single images – and it also saves battery life in the camera.
You can easily set up your TURTLE SMART by the downloadable software. When a new strobe is available you can simply download the new version and set up your trigger.
Forget the need of another extra battery: Turtle has it’s own inside it’s sleek package. All you need is a USB charger or anything with a USB port to charge it to full power, and it only takes an hour.
As small as it can get, TRTTL is the ultimate camera-to-strobe controller device – don’t let size fool you, this little box is a hell of a beast, wait until you unleash it’s full potential!
Your photos will be correctly exposed. Or do you want to control the power level of your strobes? No problem, our products support Manual setting.

First of all, you should check the space in the housing. You have to measure the distance between the connector to the adapter and order a special cable. After the products arrive you just put the controller in the hot shoe, setup that from PC software, turn it on using the main switch, and connect the special cable to the device.
You can find the USB setup manual in the webshop (right side menu).
Basically only the camera and underwater strobe setup matters. If the underwater housing has any bulkhead to control the strobe or a connector for fiber optic cable it should work properly with the TURTLE SMART or TURTLE MANUAL trigger.
TURTLE triggers are made from special SMD technologies parts to ensure it can be as small as possible. The TURTLE triggers' case is made of ABS molded plastic, so they are light but durable.
The hot shoe was made from PCB with special spring-loaded pins to ensure the optimal connection with the camera. All triggers have a LIPO 120 mAh rechargeable battery. To recharge you can use a micro USB cable. (From May of 2020 we add a charging cable to the TURTLE triggers.)
