Hi

 

Just looking for some guidance about attaching Ikelite strobes to a Sea and Sea housing....anyone using a rig like this at the moment, how does it come up...or should I just bite the bullet and go Sea and Sea for everything....I have two DS-51's that I want to use...

 

Thanks

Brett

If you have a Nikonos-Style TTL Bulkhead and want to shoot TTL, you will need Ikelite TTL adapter 4302.2 (this item is discontinued so you will need to find old stock, or you can shoot manual using Ikelite sync cord ##4118.2 (cost $160). If you want to go manual using fiber optic triggers, Ikelite sells strobe adapters for $80 a piece. Did you give up on housing your D800 in an Ikelite housing?
