Aquatic/Canon 20D - Heinrich TTL

05 April 2009 - 06:44 PM

I recently purchased a used Aquatica housing for the Canon 20D that had the Henrich eTTL converter installed. When I attempt to use the Ikelite strobe in TTL mode, I end up with pictures that are completely underexposed. The strobe appears to be working fine when set in manual mode.

In all of the reading I have been able to find, it seems that Heinrich is saying that it is a problem with only getting the preflash fromt the strobe - and must be attributed to the cable.

The TTL line of your strobe is not properly connected to the converter. What you see is the preflash. Due to the fact that the flash does a full dump (no TTL signal) the strobe is not ready for the mainflash a few milliseconds afterwards. The results are a black picture. Check continuity of all cables and make sure you have good contacts. The actual timing of the flash is not influenced from our converters at all!

Aquatica Housing/Port Question

22 March 2009 - 07:52 PM

To any Aquatica Housing owners (particularly the Canon 20D) - When you put the lens ports on the housing, how tight do they fit? Mine seem looser than I would have expected though when put under water was still water tight.

There also seems to be just a light room for wiggle - is this normal?
