Hello,

I have an Aquatica housing for a D7000. It currently has two electrical Nikonos strobe connections, and I would like to change one to an optical connection.

Does anyone know how to remove the existing Nikonos connector? The replacement optical connector seems to be a press-in style, but I nervous just to start yanking on the existing connector on the housing.

Thanks!

David

David, First sorry for the delay, I'm at the Monterey Shootout at the moment, so I am not as quick as usual (as not in front of my desktop all the time :) :D )

Your bulkhead are have a retaining O-ring inside, just diconnect from the switch board, remove the O-ring and pop it out, replace with the Optical and after you do an immersion test (to confirm how good you are at doing this!!! :D ) the you are ready.

I am back at the office wednesday morning, if there is anything else I can do more let me know.

BTW its a great event and yesterday's presentation was a gala of nice images including some of our own wtpixel member Eric Cheng and Stephen Frink. t<was a nice evening.
