An integrated TTL circuit is fine-tuned to the Canon G16's flash exposure protocol for the most accurate exposure possible. The circuit is powered by the strobe for zero maintenance and no batteries to change. Exposure compensation in TTL mode is supported using the camera's built-in control.
At this time, only Ikelite DS strobes are capable of powering the circuitry. SEA&SEA, INON, and Nikonos strobes attached via electrical sync cord will still enjoy fast recycle times and improved battery life, but must be used in manual exposure modes only.
For those that prefer optical strobe operation, the housing has two Sea & Sea style fiber optic sync cable ports.
All important camera functions. Controls are not provided for Flash Pop-up Control, Diopter Adjustment Control. There is no TTL compensation control on the housing. Flash exposure adjustments are made directly on Ikelite DS series strobes.
