Hello. The only way I found until to today to fire my Subtronic Pro160 strobes is with custom 5mm optic fiber cables that I built. I use a manual led strobe trigger with red light in a Nauticam NA-D800 housing. This solution is however very cumbersome and the cables are easily damaged and I've been loosing many shots due to strobes not firing. Does anyone know a better solution using normal coiled fiber optic cables? I have a pair of these cables from Nauticam and they work with this setup with Inon Z240 and Sea&Sea YS-D1 strobes but not with my Subtronics. I guess they are a lot less sensitive than the other two.. Thanks. Miguel Pereira

Hello Miguel,  

 

The Inon and the D1 sensor is the best in the market now.  I think you have to try multicore optical cable to the correct firing.
