An Ikelite TTL housing improves your photos.
TTL or "Through-The-Lens" flash metering means the camera controls flash duration to properly expose an image. The Ikelite housing for the Canon Powershot G16 includes built-in proprietary circuitry which tells your camera that a TTL external flash is attached, allowing the camera to adjust exposure more accurately**. Spend more time showing off great photos, and less time tinkering in Photoshop.
Stop the drain on your camera's battery.
Fiber optic slave flash units require the camera's flash to fire every time. This constantly drains your camera's battery life, builds up heat inside of the housing, and creates a shutter lag as you wait for the camera's flash to recycle in between shots. The Ikelite housing for the Canon G16 translates direct electrical impulses from your camera, triggering your strobe and precisely adjusting its power without the need to fire the camera's flash.
No mis-fires. Period.
In-line communication between the strobe and the camera completely eliminates signal interference and false triggering caused by light rays bouncing off the water's surface or your buddy's flash going off.
Comfort and control come standard.
For a system of this caliber, a tray and handle is essential to good handling, balance underwater and attachment of external lighting. An aluminum tray with left-hand rubberized grip is included with the Ikelite housing for the Canon G16, providing balance and comfortable hold, plus a quick release point for your external strobe. The complete handle assembly removes with just two screws for traveling or to add the digital tray with dual handles.
Clearly superior strength and assurance.
Special polycarbonate blends allow us to create an extremely strong yet clear and lightweight enclosure. We believe there's no substitute for inspecting the actual o-ring seal once your housing is closed. Our signature clear construction lets you see that the housing is watertight and dry before you enter the water, and provides full view of the camera while you're diving. Polycarbonate is fundamentally corrosion-resistant for easy maintenance year after year.
Quality in engineering, manufacturing and service.
