In Topic: inon d2000 hosuing compatability questions

Thanks Jim,

So then if i get the fiber optic cable and get it attached to fore the Inon strobe should I mask the part of the housing the cameras flash would fire through( as long as the flash can fire) so there is less chance of back scatter? does that even make sense?





The D2000 is an optically triggered strobe only, ie it uses a fibre optic cable to slave off the cameras flash. Whichever housing/camera you use
you will need a flash on the camera and the ability to attach the optic fibre to the housings front. The Ikelite housings are acrylic so attaching
the fibre optics is no issue. Check with Ikelite but I believe there is not enough room in the top of their D700 housing for the flash to pop up fully
and fire. One workaround would be an LED trigger like This One. Most of the OEM housings have provision for mounting fibre optics or there are
3rd party solutions aplenty.

Cheers,
Jim.
