Hi all,

So here's an esoteric question for those of you who still have dim, fond memories of your film cameras. I want to take rear curtain flash shots, but I've read that the only way to do this is to use the F4 with a Nikon speedlight that has that setting on the flash. There's no control on the F4 itself. I was wondering if anyone had any ideas or thoughts on how (or even if) one could 'fool' the camera into taking rear curtain sync shots without requisite flash.

I still own an Aquatica F4S housing. Even with the MF 23 back you will still need to use the sb 25-26 strobes in a water proof housing. I think that both Aquatica and Secam made housing's for these strobes. You can purchase the strobes cheap but I am not certain where to find a housing for them. That is probably the only way. Good luck. vr Andy
