This is a little bitty puppy. Takes two little AA batteries and gives a little bitty pop.

I bought it, way back when, thinking it would be great for a compact Nikonos V macro set-up.  It worked okay once I figured out that, even with TTL, the strobe still had to be pretty close to the subject to give off enough illumination to exercise the TTL. Even so, I only used it a few times and it’s been sitting in my camera closet ever since.

 

It has a four-pin Sea & Sea strobe sync port to Nikonos-style five-pin sync port sync cord, (try saying that three times fast) buuut I don’t believe it will talk directly to digital cameras. It has no FOC connections and your choice of settings are OFF, ON and TTL, and SLAVE ON or OFF. Moreover, if used as an unharnessed slave it will fire with your cameras pre-flash, if, as in some cameras, you can’t lock out that function.

So what bloody use is it?

 

I don’t know, but I still want $75 and postage for it and the sync cord. (The latter, I believe, may have some value.)

I'll be happy to answer any questions.
