So i have acquired an old pre digital strobe, and a digital adaptor.
I have attached photos below - basically the strobe connects to the digital adaptor. When the normal flash from the camera (using a Panasonic GX7) fires, the adaptor senses the light and fires the strobe. Note this is not instantaneous.
So the issue arises where the strobe fires and lights up the area, but it appears to fire too late. As such the photo is taken before the light from the strobe is activated. (but the strobe does fire, it just appears to fire after the shutter is finished).
Any suggestions on how to make this work/ make it fire when it is required?? or is it possible to add a preflash to the camera?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
