In Topic: Remote Strobe Trigger

"The limitations on using any "on board" slave sensor is that it will typically have to be in line of sight with the triggering strobe."   

Understood, while testing around the house I put it in obstructed areas and found that it fired but of course it was getting light bounce off walls etc. that's not gonna happen UW.  Going to take it along to Bonaire next week and give it a try. Will report back.

I have also wanted to try some remote slave lighting. I pulled out an old Nikonos 105 (brand new sort of since they were replaceing them for free) fired up with fresh batteries and am amazed at how optically sensitive it is in slave mode. This is through air and with diffusser on, fireing at 25' easily with 105 at 90deg from camera flash.  Anyone used the 105 for this? Limitations UW?

For everybody waiting to get a copy of Alex's book, you can order it from Amazon.co.uk and get it in 1 - 2 weeks. You don't have to wait for Amazon US to get their act together. The cost, including shipping, is $32.80 (USD). If Amazon US ever gets around to shipping it, the cost will be $30.80 (USD), including shipping. For $2.00, why wait??? Get it today!!!


I pre-ordered  the book from Amazon US back in March. I'm still waiting on that order. In the meantime, I got a copy from Amazon UK.


Don't wait.....Get yours!!!
