Speaking of ways to keep the Tfish in place

Here's what I was using this weekend. A Clamps. The first dive, I was using bolt snaps and double enders. It came together with the A Clamps. I was able to clamp onto kelp, drape it over the corners of the wreck and keep the Tfish in range.

Worked great!

Third and hoop fully a good batch off triggers,

The triggers where ready but at the last moment i noticed that the ALU part was not OK. (screw-thread was not good!)

So, the supplier of the parts promised me today that he will make the part again before the end of April 2011 :)
I hope you can wait all another 2 weeks for the triggerfish.

Hedwig.

Thats a great shot. Do you have one where the diver is a little higher against the green?

My triggerfish arrived safely a while back and I took one for the first dive yesterday. The main problem I had with the HW slave sensors is that they would not fire the strobe in ambient light (or even in a cave with too many bright torches around). I was very happy to confirm that this wasn't a problem for the triggerfish. Even with green vis, there was lots of sunlight under this shallow pier, and the inon fired reliably throughout the test dive.

You can see the remote strobe backlighting the rock under the diver in the shot below. Thanks Hedwig! I'm looking forward to using the triggerfish on some wrecks, hopefully in nicer vis.

Did some testing in my pond... to be sure they are waterproof ;)

Used the Sea&Sea YS-250 and YS-110a strobes. External flash (pointing to heaven...) on camera and turned off TTL in camera...
Next test will be in open water :)

Serge is little bit addicted to diving :)
Hope we can try them next Sunday at wrecks at the Nortsea, when the weather conditions hopefully are good.

I'm about to attach the triggerfish + strobe on a Gorilla-pod using ULCS gear, as I think others in this post have done as well.
My question is,what kind of ball adapter do you mount on the gorilla pod? ULCS AD-1420 female ball adapter, is that the one?

Yes, i think so, is has to be one with 1/4" male thread inside.

Additional info for the triggers.
They not seem to work with the YS-90DX and YS30. I don't have them, but i think it is for sure a power problem.
With the YS250 they don't work on all strobes????? But the strobe itself is also not reliable, especially the last batch.
So be sure that you can draw the power out off the ready signal. (RDY)
