TTL or "Through-The-Lens" flash metering. TTL means the strobe interprets information from the camera to control flash duration and properly expose an image. TTL may be accomplished directly through electrical signals from the camera, or indirectly through watching the behavior of the camera's built-in flash. Circuitry built into this housing allows the camera to communicate directly with compatible underwater strobes. When connected via this circuitry, the camera learns that an external flash is attached and is able to more accurately adjust exposure by knowing this. The camera's flash will not fire, eliminating the shutter lag associated with waiting for the camera's flash to recycle. The Ikelite housing for the Sony Cyber-Shot A6000 includes built-in proprietary circuitry which tells your camera that a TTL external flash is attached, allowing the camera to adjust exposure more accurately. Spend more time showing off great photos, and less time tinkering in Photoshop.
