This underwater TTL trigger was developed for Olympus and Panasonic mirrorless camera systems to use in those smaller underwater housings where isn't enough space above the hotshoe for the TTL unit. The o-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 o-TURTLE SMART TTL trigger works in Manual or TTL mode which you can change during the dive. The o-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). As the LED of the trigger controls the strobe instead of the built-in flash of your camera, the battery of the camera lasts much longer, so you need to open the underwater housing less often.

The o-TURTLE SMART for Olympus and Panasonics underwater setups 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 parameters. Upon upgrading you simply choose the strobe 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 o-TURTLE MOBIE SMART TTL trigger for Olympus/Panasonic 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.)
The setup software for PC is downloadable from our website: you can find it on the right side of the page. If you need the MAC version you can find it in the official APPstore.
There is also a USB cable in the package for charging and upgrading.
