I would like to change out my existing Nikonos 5 pin bulkhead on my Nauticam D7000 for an S6 bulkhead to use with Subtronic strobes that have an S6 connection (one digital, and a slave in analog mode).
I have several problems would appreciate any thoughts/information on:
1) I cannot find an M16 S6 bulkhead threaded for the Nauticam port. Does one exist?
2) There are at least 2 M14 S6 bulkheads available. In that case, it appears I can use the Nauticam M16 to M14 stepdown bulkhead adapter. Any problems with that approach?
3) I plan to use my existing Nikonos 5 pin hotshoe connection, and cut off the Nikonos connector from the ribbon cable. Then, I can solder the ribbon cable from my existing hotshoe (N5) to the ribbon cable from the S6 for the Subtronics. I have decent soldering skills, so that seems pretty easy. However, I cannot seem to locate a wiring diagram that shows how to wire from Nikon N5 to Subtronic S6. Can anyone point me in the right direction?
4) Is there an easier way to do this that I haven't considered? I know 10bar used to make a short N5 to S6 cable, but it seems that is no longer manufactured. I also thought about buying the Subal S6 to Nikonos bulkhead that would be pre-wired, but not sure if I can get that bulkhead on my Nauticam. Any ideas would be appreciated.
