In Topic: Emergency - Broken Port Lock

Glad to hear everything went well.

I was on the MY Obsession, we had a fun week with the diveclub.
We went for some hammerhead-action, but they stayed a bit too far in the deep. I guess the water was a bit too warm for them.

From what port in Egypt is your liveaboard leaving?
I am also heading for a liveaboard tomorrow. I am leaving from Port Ghalib in Marsa Alam.
I am happy to lent you an Ikelite portlock from my old housing if we can arrange to meet somewhere. I am in Port Ghalib thursday night around 23.00h (I guess).


In Topic: Fiber optic trigger - D7000 and INON Z240

I also made the fiberconversion with the D7000, and i am very happy with it

The only thing I still miss, is a remote slavesensor for optic triggering.

The single Inon Z240 was triggered by a slave sensor with a metre of cable attached to the srobe synch cable.
The sensor needs to be in line of sight of the triggering strobe but the slave strobe can be hidden.
In the first image my model Rilana has the sensor in her hand, it's so sensitive she has it pointed away from the camera and triggering strobe, but it still fired the slave !!
The cable is just visible coming under her left elbow.

See http://www.uwpmag.com/ issue57 for Alex Mustard's comprehensive article. I used exactly the same set-up.

I hope this helps

Thanks, I knew the article I was just curious what slavesensor or trigger you used.

How do you trigger the strobes?
