Double TTL Strobe with Nikonos 5

15 August 2010 - 02:52 AM

I all, i've been diving with my old morris strobe and the 20mm and i think i may need a second light.
I've found on ebay a cheap SB105 and now i need a cable to connect both the strobes to the nikonos.
I can't put the SB105 as slave since it's slave mode is not TTL.
Since the Morris has it's own conncetor different from the SB105 i need a Y cable with the sockets, but i didn't found any of them that allow TTL of the 2 Strobes.
I've found this 2
But both looks like are non TTL.
Thanks, Best Regards.

OT - Graduated Mask

20 July 2010 - 04:48 AM

Hi all, sorry to post this litte off topi not photography related.
I'm goin' to buy a graduated mask, i'm a little shotfocussed and outside the water i have -1.75 and -1.25 (very little astigmatism that i can think about not correcting) i've been told that i have to decrease the correction of 25% while on my beliving air whater interface is a positive lense so i was thinking about increasing the correction.
Anybody that can clarify this point ?
I can't use contact lenses.

Got the strobe !!

I finally got the strobe from ebay.
It's an old Morris III TTL and it looks nice.
I did a small tries without film with the unit in TTL mode, Nikonos in auto and then i did a shot with the camera cap on and a shot pointing at a bright light.
What i can see is theat form my feeling the strobe output more or less the same light...is that bad or i'm just not able to evalute te duration and intensity of the strobe?
Any idea to see if the strobe works fine without wasting a film ???? Like using a digital camera ?

Maual focus undewater

Well after my first 2 rolls apart the color temperature and exposition issues i've also had a lot of focus problems, since i'm a novice scuba diver i'm not yet used to evaluate the distance underwater.
I was planning to build a ragefinde with 2 laserbeams i have but then i found the
HawkEyeŽ Handheld Sonar System PX, it's watrproof up to 60m, from 0.8m to 60m range and 20° angle and also quite cheap, about 100$.
Anybody has used it to focus uw ?
