In Topic: Newbie Must Read: What new system did you just buy?

10 July 2019 - 11:30 AM

Currently using a D300s but looking to upgrade to the D500. Any thoughts on Ikelite v Aquatica v Nauticam. Worth paying that little bit more?


Woody - add Subal to your list. Mine for the D500 is terrific!

In Topic: Need suggestion to buy a straight fiber optic cable

10 July 2019 - 04:04 AM

I've made a backup fibre optic from an already terminated toslink cable and it works fine for INON strobes.  The Toslink plug can be trimmed down to fit in the S&S style connector as used on housings such as Nauticam m43 housings, just take the corners off.  You would have to trim down the cable to fit into an INON connector on the other end.

 

Yeah, I did the same for my Inons - but davehicks is saying that Toslink cable is not enough, I think, for Sea and Sea strobes. A few posts some time back suggested that S&S strobes need more output to activate a slave.

I only dive solo when shooting in places like Bonaire. Unless someone else is happy covering about 20 sq feet in a one hour dive, then they can come with me :)

 

LOL, don't I know that problem. I had one seriously cheesed-off dive/life partner.......  

 

Maybe we should buddy up! I spent over 40 minutes in one spot on Something Special - and only left then because I felt bad (ish) for my partner.....
