Hybrid or optical bulkheads?

28 March 2012 - 09:42 AM

I've just ordered the Aquatica housing for my Canon 7D, but I didn't know which way to go regarding the bulkheads. For the short-term (having impoverished myself with the housing purchase) I'll be using my optical Sea & Sea YS-27DX, so obviously one bulkhead has to be optical. I'll likely get a larger strobe in a few months, and use my 27DX as a slave. Eventually I'll match the larger strobe.

For mainly macro shots, am I more likely to end up with a strobe that's optical or TTL? I'm perfectly comfortable with manual settings, having used them for years. The guys at the shop where I bought my housing said the market was heading in an optical direction - however, they recommended hybrid bulkheads.

Am I missing something?
