Hi,

I bought one of Hedwig's Micro LED Strobes for my Aquatica A7D Housing with the new YS-D1 strobes, unfortunately, I couldn't get them to work. I guess this is due to the off centre position of the S&S's slave sensor. But this is supposed to work well with Inon strobes as per this post on the WP forums: http://wetpixel.com/...opic=44632&st=0

$120, including shipping anywhere in the US & Canada.

Cheers

Stu

I have ordered a Sea&Sea fiber cable and will try to find a solution. Maybe try to create a little distance between the fiber and the strobes sensor?
When you aim the leds directly on to the strobes sensor it works fine.

I tried setting the S&S Cord further back from the sensor, but nothing happened. Another option maybe would be to extend the FO Cable so it sticks out of the end of the port, that may give a better spread of light, but the S&S cord end is molded around the cord, can't push it out further.

I'll see if I can find a thicker FO cable, maybe that would help in light transmission.
