Does anyone know if a second bulkhead connector can be added to a single bulkhead Aquatica housing for the Nikon F100?

Your housing should have a second hole (that is plugged) located next to your existing flash bulkhead. Aquatica does offer a "dual" bulkhead assembly. If I am not mistaken, the single connection you have now must be replaced as well. The kit includes two bulkheads which are wired to a single hot shoe connector in the housing.You can install it yourself as well. Oh yea, it is not cheap! ( $150 ~ $200), then again, what underwater camera equipment is?

An alternative may be to look at an Inon slave converter which can be used on various flash units. This effectively provides cableless ttl (or manual) control on a second flash unit. I've used one with an SB105 and tried one with a YS120 with good results. And no need for a second socket or cable (the most likely things to fail!).
