Ahh, the rear curtain thing is Cannon specific? Any idea how Nikon does things? I would need to make my own (or buy) the hot shoe adapter and also double check that my Subal has room to fit that, but it is something I've wanted for backup (or primary, and keep the electrical as backup)

With a bright flash from a cameras intetnal flash tube, you can get away with higher losses in the fibre from single strand cables and still have enough light left at the far end to trigger a strobe.
With a relayively weaker pulse from an LED, the cables need to be as efficient at passing light from one end to the other as possible.
Personally, I'm using the howshot brand multicore ones.

I believe it should work with Sony. Next time I catch up with a friend who has an A7RII, I'll see if he minds if I try it on his camera.
Oh, and I tried the V5.6 board shown above with the YSD2 - they fire just fine!
