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.”

Our Seas urge Scotland to bring back Inshore Limit

Published

on

Our Seas call on Scotland’s First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon, and the Scottish Government to follow their own policies and stop the chronic destruction of our seabed by urgently reinstating a coastal limit on bottom-trawl and dredge fishing. Sign the petition here.

Scottish coastal seas have been driven into decline due to decades of mismanagement. Destructive bottom towed fishing gear has had free access to over 95% of our inshore waters since the 1980’s, to the detriment of habitats, biodiversity, fisheries, and communities.

In 1889 a law was passed to protect fish stocks and small boats by banning trawling (except by sail) from within three nautical miles of the shore. Catastrophically the law was removed in 1984 against a backdrop of the industrialization of fishing technology, breaches of the Three Mile Limit, and declining offshore fish stocks.  Access to the inshore appeared to improve catches for a short while, but inevitably led to the rapid decline of fish stocks as seabed habitats – vital nurseries and shelter for many species – were destroyed.

See the trailer of their film The Limit below:

Our Seas are asking you to sign their petition to Bring Back the Fish and Bring Back Scotland’s Inshore Limit. You can sign the petition by clicking here.
