Introducing Flash Trigger

Flash triggers allow motor drive shooting sequences, perfect for fast moving action. Since the popup flash is not used, the camera does not have to wait for the popup flash to recycle, meaning faster shooting, less heat buildup, and longer camera battery life. Shoot as fast as your external strobes can handle!

This flash trigger is manual only; automatic flash exposure (TTL) is not currently enabled.

Supported strobes include the Inon Z-240 Type 4, D-2000 Type 4, S-2000, Sea & Sea YS-250*, YS-01, and YS-D1.

Shooting with Fiber Optic cables means shooting with confidence. There are no sync cables to flood or corrode, meaning much higher reliability, and the strobe can even be removed from the rig, while underwater, for off-camera lighting opportunities. Nauticam fiber optic cables have the highest light throughput of any optical cables on the market, making the Nauticam Flash Trigger that much more reliable.

The Flash Trigger for Canon weighs under 70 grams, including batteries, and mounts on the camera hotshoe, locking in place with a locking lever. It uses 2x CR3032 batteries, which combined with the highly efficient LED trigger lights, provide for thousands of flashes (10000 estimated). An LED status indicator informs the user that the unit is on and functional. It fits perfectly into the supported housings, listed below.

New housings for Canon SLR cameras will support the Flash Trigger as well.

  • NA-1DX
  • NA-6D
