TTL Converter for Nikon DSLR with Nikonos N5 Connector

Discontinued October 2015
Product Number 4302

This product is no longer in production and we have no remaining new, blemished, or used inventory. Please use replacement Product Number 4302.3.

Proven effective since its first introduction in mid-2005, our Nikon TTL conversion circuitry is also available for use with non-Ikelite housings. Let the camera adjust your Ikelite strobes while you focus on composition and enjoy the confidence of perfect exposure.

The TTL Converter is equipped with a simple rotating switch that allows toggling between TTL and manual exposure. When in TTL mode, exposure compensation may be accessed via the camera's built-in menus. Proper operation and TTL exposure requires use of a current-model Ikelite DS strobe, see compatibility by serial number below.

Use of this TTL Converter requires a Nikonos N5-style electrical bulkhead strobe connector and TTL hotshoe. If you are unsure whether your housing meets these requirements, please contact the housing manufacturer. Wiring diagrams for our Ikelite and Nikonos-style connectors can be found here.

One or two strobes may be connected to the Converter using an Ikelite-to-Ikelite single or dual sync cord. Use of two strobes requires a dual sync cord. Two strobes cannot be controlled by individual Converters even if the housing is equipped with two bulkhead connectors.

TTL Converters are not usable with non-Ikelite strobes or non-DS Ikelite strobes.

This Converter has been replaced by the 4302.3 TTL Converter, which provides full TTL support of Nikon D810 and D7200 cameras. Due to hardware changes and risk of cord damage, we are unable to modify existing 4301, 4301.2, 4302, or 4302.2 Converters to the newest TTL protocol. Please also note that strobe serial number requirements differ from the original Nikon TTL Converter.
