In Topic: strobe convertor - sea & sea -> nikonos

Are you sure that you need all 5 pins? Many housings only require two pins to be connected even though they have 5 pin bulkheads. What are the specifics of the housing?

thanks for the reply bill.
was doing a bit of digging last night and it appears that there is some difference between the 2 interfaces re voltages etc, so what i thought might've been easy doesn't appear to be the case. looks like i need to get nik strobes unless there is such a magic box of electronics that does the job (i know there is something that will allow nik strobes to convert to the 4 pin sea & sea connector on mm2 cameras etc). think i'll have a chat with mike at mikedive.de as this sort of thing is right up his alley.

have now tried the 2T macro lens out of curiosity and was pleasantly suprised at the 'new' macro capabilities of the F30. new page is at http://www.devilgas....i/f30_macro.asp should anyone be interested.

not taken it diving yet. hopefully tomorrow.....

mmmm kay.

gotta admit, this seems a touch overkill to me.

post dive, i soak the rig, shake & blow most water away (lung power), then if i need to, dry the rig with a towel and shyte wipe. not caused any probs in the last 15 years and i'm still on my first roll of bog paper (well maybe not, but you get the idea :)).

that said most of my stuff involves plane journeys (and the stingy uk baggage allowances) and lugging an extra cylinder & reg to blow water off the camera factors heavily in my comments.

snoopy loops.

price can't be beaten as they're free! find an old car inner tube, cut loads of 1" or " wide loops from it. they can be used to secure virtually anything to anything.
