I have a newly aquired Ikelite coolpix950 housing but no lights as of yet... so I am looking for anything compatible that people have for sale...

Current possibility is a ds50 setup with a sync cord (sensor will not work with the 950).... any other thoughts? Anyone selling anything that will work?

I've altered my plans....

I'm looking for strobe(s) for the olmypus pt-015 housing (for the 5050z) now... I've opted to sell my cp950 and step up.

Any suggestions? Anyone selling anything?

This system works on a remote sensor...

Wade,

The only strobes that are widely available for that setup are the YS90DX and the Ike DS50 and DS125

They are pretty new and wrocking strobes so you won't often find them for sale. There are other options if you buy the Ikelite housing, which allows you to "hard wire" the strobe to the camera in the "traditional" way.

Otherwise you are "strobe limited" with this setup.
