Hello everyone. I need help in answering a few questions about fiber optic and/or electrical connections for my housing bulkhead. I just upgraded cameras and I am now ordering my new housing. I use an Aquatica Housing. I am upgraded from the D90 to the D7100. I have 2 Ikelite strobes and I have been using dual nikonos bulkheads with electrical synch cords. I do not use TTL...prefer manual. I hope to change out my strobes in the future but for now my pocketbook is empty.
Here is what I am looking to get answers on. I have a couple of options to consider with the bulkhead. I can go back with 2 electrical bulkheads or I have the option of what is called a hybrid - one electrical bulkhead and one optical. This hybrid is all new to me.
- Do you think it is worth it to get the hybrid setup?
- What do you think about the hybrid setup? Does anyone on here have it?
- Or should I just wait until the point in the future that I have strobes that have this capability and send the housing back and have the bulkheads changed out then?
- If I get the hybrid, then I would have to use one cord that is split - any comments on this setup? I am used to 2 separate synch cords.
Any thoughts are welcome. Thanks - DIverPam
