Nauticam Housings for Sony A7 & A9 Series with Ikelite TTL: A Perfect Combination

By Lee Burghard January 2019

Sony’s latest full Frame powerhouse camera bodies; the A9 and A7RIII, are capable of capturing high resolution images at blistering fast release rates that most underwater strobes have trouble keeping up with. Serious underwater photographers have long turned to Ikelite DS-160 & DS-161 strobes in these circumstances with their hefty light output, even lighting coverage, beautiful warm temperature and fast recycle times for the amount of light output. Ikelite is also justifiably famous for their exceptionally accurate TTL Performance, but until now there has not been a way to integrate the benefits of Ikelite TTL into the world’s most popular underwater housings for Sony.


Fortunately, our service technicians have created a custom solution. Using the Ikelite ST1K TTL Kit with a Nauticam Ikelite style bulkhead, we've created a easy user-installable module to upgrade your existing (or new) housing to full Ikelite TTL functionality with your Sony camera. Installation can be completed in minutes and provides the proven reliability and high performance that is a hallmark of both Nauticam housings and Ikelite’s premium strobes.


Just as importantly, TTL integration also means you have access to valuable features like rear curtain sync and external flash exposure compensation.
