I'm headed on a dive trip tomorrow and would like advice on which pin connectors I need to cover to fire my strobes properly.
My setup is:
Aquatica housing, dual Nikonos bulkhead connectors
Sea & Sea strobe connectors, inserts into one bulkhead and forks to each of two Sea & Sea YSD90DX Duo
Manual shutter and aperture settings 1/125 sec F16, 200 ISO
It won't fire if all five pin connectors are open in the hotshoe connection.
I remember reading somewhere that I need to cover some of the connections, but my searches yield different results -- some advice is to cover all but the center connector. Haven't tried that yet, but the strobes did fire when I covered the bottom two connectors. Should I just go with covering all but the center pin, or is it OK if I cover just the bottom two connections?
Anyone have a handy diagram???
Thanks much in advance.
