North America-based camera housing manufacturers Ikelite and Aquatica have announced that they will be partnering to make Ikelite’s signature internal TTL circuitry available in Aquatica’s line of housings.
This collaboration means that Ikelite TTL circuitry will be integrated into the design of select Aquatica housings.
A joint press release put out by the two companies states:
“Consistent exposure is the hallmark of Ikelite TTL technology. Integration directly into the housing gives the photographer total creative lighting control, with the opportunity to access both over/under exposure compensation and manual exposure settings through a single easy-to-reach control.
The design of the Ikelite TTL circuitry takes its power source directly from the strobes, eliminating the unreliability of small batteries commonly used in TTL converters.
Aquatica has long been a staunch supporter of Ikelite strobes, which they consider to be the best in the industry. Ikelite strobes connectors have long been offered by Aquatica, chosen mainly because of their reliable and rugged design. The integration of Ikelite TTL circuitry to Aquatica housings adds yet another level of versatility and helps broaden the creative boundaries of today’s demanding photographers.
The Aquatica A7D Mk II housing for the Canon 7D Mk II, to be introduced in early 2015, will be the cornerstone of this new and exciting collaboration.
This exciting partnership provides an unprecedented access for the consumer to better photos through the most sophisticated underwater TTL exposure available.”
