This TTL trigger was developed for Nikon DSLR camera systems to use in those smaller underwater housings where isn't enough space above the hotshoe for the TTL unit. The i-TURTLE MOBIE SMART has an approx. 10 cm cable with separated hotshoe. This special feature lets the user place the small TTL unit anywhere in the housing.
The new i-TURTLE SMART TTL trigger works in i-TTL Unified mode where it's possible to change between Manual and TTL mode from the camera. The i-TURTLE SMART is the perfect choice for the demanding underwater photographer who needs a reliable TTL converter that works with the most popular underwater strobes (Inon, Ikelite, Sea&Sea, Subtronic).

You can read about the compatible camera models in our blog post:
The i-TURTLE SMART is a state-of-the-art user-friendly TTL converter that can be upgraded by the user via the USB port for the strobe characteristic and some special feature parameter. Upon upgrading you simply choose the strobe and the camera model from the software and download the setup to the TURTLE's memory.
The Internal charging system works via USB AB connector (This is a common Android phone charger)
The package contains the i-TURTLE MOBIE SMART TTL trigger for Nikon cameras and the LED panel (with the new, brighter 150 cd LEDs) or the special cable for sync cord connection. If you want to connect your strobe via fiber optic cable we recommend using multicore cable! (Please write Us which kind of connection do you use. We also recommend writing us what kind of underwater strobe will you control with the TURTLE trigger so we can set up the unit you ordered.)
There is also a USB cable in the package for charging and upgrading.
