Just got my Ikelite housing for Canon 20d and I am eager to get it wet. At the moment the only strobe that I have access to is Substrobe 400 as my DS-125s are being upgraded.
For some reason ss400 doesn't seem to co-operate with the housing. According to the housing manual you should be able to use this strobe given that the strobe is set to manual mode. The strobe just keeps beeping and doesn't fire.
I've tried different sync cords, 4103.51 ( the one with blue band), with no avail. The strobe fires if I use slave sensor (4100??) and trigger it with the built-in flash. The strobe also recycles normally after firing.
Any idea what is going on? Should I use different kind of sync cord? Camera settings to change? Custom function 7 is set to fire the strobe.
