#391333 Nauticam for Sony A6500 and strobes (help needed)

Posted by mantaray222 on 18 January 2018 - 04:02 AM

Hi friends,


I'm considering a Sony A6500 in a Nauticam housing, but I have a lot of doubts about the strobes.


1- I want to use my actual Ikelite strobes DS160 and DS161. It seems the TTL will work only with fiber optic cables, am I wrong?


2- If that is true, there is no Nauticam led trigger to avoid the recycle time of the internal camera flashlight.

Do someone knows if the Fantasea one (http://www.fantasea..../it.A/id.748/.f) will WORK and FIT into Nauticam A6500 housing??


3- If in the future i want to replace the Ikelite strobes for Inon Z330 or Z240: can I use the same fiber optic cables? do i have to purchase anything else?


Sorry if someone thinks these are silly questions, but I'm coming from a Nikon reflex, Ikelite housing and wired strobes, so I'm really lost in the compatibility setup, changing EVERYTHING.


Any answer will be very helpfull for me, thanks!!
