You can buy underwater TTL converter for Nikon, Canon, Sony, Olympus and Panasonic cameras. You can find our range in the webshop but we’re working on the new TTL-triggers so check the blog often where we write about the new versions.
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 hotshoe, setup that from PC software, turn it on using the main switch, setup your strobe brand using the DIP at the bottom of the controller and connect the special cable to the device.
The USB setup manual is in the webshop right side.
Turtle electronics were made from special SMD technologies parts to ensure the smallest form factor and is enclosed into a plastic (ABS moulded housing) case (which is lighter than stainless steel).
The hotshoe was made from PCB with special spring loaded pins to ensure optimal connection with the camera. All electronics have a LIPO 120 mAh recharchable batters that the user can charge with a normal micro USB cable. (That is same android phones)
The TTL works automatically so sometimes there is a slight over or underexposure in specific situations. However in this case you can change the camera’s strobe or exposure compensation.or you can adjust your image during post processing. The TURTLE has a manual setting feature so you can turn off TTL even under water. If all photos are overly bright or dark there must be some faults, in this case please contact us.
The TURTLE is a TTL converter for underwater photography which control the strength of strobe lighting automatically so you won’t need to adjust it manually under water. (TTL: Through-the-lens metering, a camera feature that permits light metering through the taking lens itself.) You can use TURTLE TTL triggers via sync cords or fiber optic cables, it works with many DSLR or mirrorless cameras, underwater housings and strobes. The are TURTLE SMART TTL converter for Nikon, Sony, Canon, Olympus and Panasonic cameras, the supported underwater strobes are different models from Ikelite, Sea&Sea, Subtronic, Inon.
The TURTLE TTL trigger is really small so the most popular housings have enough space for it, but if you are not sure contact us and we will try to help you or you can download the measures in pdf format from the downloads page.
We developed the TURTLE Mobie versions for smaller housings, which allows you to put the TTL trigger anywhere in the case. Please contact Us if you are interested in the Mobie version.
