Hi All,

 

Looking for feedback on the Turtle TTL flash trigger. http://trt-electronics.com

 

I know WetPixel is one of their partners, but haven't seen a lot of feedback on them here recently. 

Looking at buying one to compliment my Nauticam / A7RII setup - and would be good to hear real life feedback. 

 

The obvious reason to go with the Turtle TTL Flash Trigger is that it does support TTL. (although I might not use that, usually shooting fully manual, it is a nice thing to be able to do). 

 

let me know, 

 

Regards,

Y.

Hi Balazs,

 

Thanks for the reply, but not sure if you gave me feedback on the camera or the Turtle Trigger? I'm specifically interested in the Turtle TTL Flash Trigger. 

 

Thanks,

Y

I think the series of pictures shows pretty well that TTL worked mostly just fine.

Cheers

Hi

 

Sorry it was not exact answer... :) 

 

Yes we took the pictures with s-TURTLE in TTL mode and used the optical sync and LED control.

The optical cable was inon multicore and sea and sea molticore cable.

Just came across this thread.  Is anyone using the Turtle TTL with the A7RII and Inon Z240 strobes?  Orangefrog, did you purchase one?  I have the Nauticam Flash trigger unit, but would like the option of TTL.

 

Thanks, Robotten
