#317517 Strobe not synching

Posted by Rainer on 30 September 2012 - 11:58 AM

Just took the camera out of the housing and shot it past the bare strobe sensor into the mirror. It syncs!

So does that likely just mean it's a cable issue (i.e. the cable isn't transmitting enough light)? If so, great, I'll look at trying a new cable.

Give it a try without the sync cables attached to the strobes...ie take your camera out of the housing and expose the sensor that the FO cable fixes to...take a pic pointing your camera flash to the strobe sensors. Run your test again.

If you get the same results then you'll know for sure that it is not a cable issue or vice versa....

#312937 La Bufadora, MX [Nikon D7000]

We recently returned from a fabulous trip to La Bufadora, Mexico. This small town sits about two hours south of the U.S. border along the Pacific coast of Baja California.

I've posted a trip report here: Mexico Trip Report [HD Video]

I did want to just share some of the footage I shot as well. This was my first mult-day trip with the camera (Nikon D7000, Aquatica housing). Another one of the divers has the same setup, but was shooting stills while I focused exclusively on video. He was happy to share his pictures and this was my first attempt at including photographs in a video. I'm sure the transitions could be better, but overall, I like the mixed-media effect (especially since I was shooting wide angle and he was focusing on macro).
