Ikelite has introduced new and improved versions of their TTL converters for Nikon cameras. The DL1 DS Link Nikon TTL Converter comes in two types—one with a connector for Ikelite housings or compatible non-Ikelite housings with an Ikelite ICS-5 bulkhead, and another for compatible non-Ikelite housings with a Nikonos N5 bulkhead. Ikelite’s latest 200DL and 50DL housings for Nikon DSLRs are all compatible.
Like the previous generation of Nikon TTL converters, the new versions allow you to toggle between TTL and manual exposure on the fly—now via the press of a button rather than twisting a rotating switch. The converter supports rear curtain sync and flash exposure compensation set in the camera. The TTL circuitry is powered by Ikelite’s strobes, so no batteries are required.
The converter with Ikelite connector comes with the NT2 Nikon TTL Hotshoe for Ikelite’s DL Nikon housings, and will retail for $375. The converter with Nikonos N5 connector has to be paired with the relevant hotshoe for compatible non-Ikelite Nikon housings, and is priced at $395.
