I was looking for some help identifying this synch cord so I could re-sell it on ebay.

It was labeled as S&S 17100 - nikon connector for S&S housing to inon strobe, but this is not what it is.

both ends appear to be the same and there are 5 pins on each side. The ends fit in the strobe, but not the housing.

I wanted to get it correctly ID'd before trying to sell it.

thx
Paul

sea and sea housing to sea and sea or inon strobe. Inon and Sea and Sea use the same fitting.

thx for the response Mike.

interesting....that cable does not fit my S&S MDX-D300 housing to Inon Strobe...is it because I have the Nikonos connector/bulkheads?

attached is the cable that fits my housing....the "silver" end has a much deeper/longer and smaller tip that fits into the housing; it is a SS-17100 and specifically says nikons 5 pin.

I wonder what model number the other one is.

correct, sea and sea had/have their own housing fitting which is the same as the strobe end or with the Nikonos fitting. The one you have in the first picture came standard with the Motormarine film camera back in the day. I thought it was still an option for their current housings but maybe not?
