Compact setup with flash triggers
Posted 09 January 2019 - 02:21 PM
I used to use an RX100 in a Nauticam housing with YS-D1 & D2, and then I upgraded to a D500 in an Aquatica housing with an LED Flash trigger and I love not having to deal with the built in camera flash recharge time, and consequent battery drainage.
However sometimes the DSLR setup is pretty bulky when traveling, and I wouldnt mind a backup setup that is more or less compact and as a backup, and whilst I still have the RX100 setup, I would love something with which I can use an LED trigger or a bulkhead connection if that isnt feasible. The only rigs I have seen that have an led trigger seem to be dslr/mirror less..

RX100M2 has a flash hotshoe, but it's the only model in the line that does. Panasonic LX100 also has one. Otherwise, many mirrorless cameras are almost as small as a compact when used with a small lens - Olympus PEN series, Sony NEX and A5xxx/A6xxx, etc. Keep in mind, however, that a LED trigger made for one camera brand is unlikely to work with a different brand, particularly where TTL is concerned.

If I remember correctly, TRT Electronics Turtle trigger has its LEDs on wires, so that they can be freely positioned where needed by the specific housing.
