Other Housings Simply Waterproof your Camera. Ikelite TTL Housing Improves your Photos. TTL or "Through-The-Lens" Flash Metering means the Camera Controls Flash Duration to Properly-Expose an Image. The Ikelite Built-In Proprietary Circuitry tells your Camera that a TTL External Flash is attached, allowing the Camera to Adjust-Exposure More-Accurately than with Slave TTL Strobes. Fiber Optic Slave Flash Units require the Camera's Flash to Fire-every-Time. This creates a Shutter Lag as you wait for the Camera's Flash to Recycle in between Shots, Drains your Camera's Battery Life, and Builds-Up Heat Inside-the-Housing. Ikelite Electronics Translate Direct Electrical Impulses from your Camera, Triggering your Strobe and Precisely Adjusting its Power without the need to Fire the Camera's Flash. This eliminates the Slave TTL Strobe issues of Signal Interference, Inconsistent Exposure due to Weak Fiber Optic Transmission and False Triggering caused by Light Rays Bouncing-Off the Water's Surface or your Buddy's Flash Going-Off.
Exposure Adjustments directly through the back of the Housing put the Perfect-Shot within reach every time. Tweak your TTL Exposure or take Total Manual Control without taking your hand off of your Housing and Controls on the back of the Housing Act as a Remote-Control for Compatible Ikelite DS-Series Strobes. Access Plus/Minus Exposure Compensation in TTL Mode, Plus Manual Power Settings in Half-Stop Increments makes this a Superior Hosing.
