In Topic: Fiber optic cable or TTL for old YS90 auto

29 July 2013 - 02:09 AM

Hi,

 

thank you for your answer. I meant TTL, electrical connection that also supports TTL with your existing strobes. With Olympus I was using a converter from Heinrichs Weikamp and amount of light was determined by the camera.

 

Anyway, after reading a while on the web, I have taken my decision to go for fiber optic, manual strobe mode.

 

I have found also a way to connect fiber optic cables to my strobes even without retaining rings with this product from 10Bar: http://www.opticaloc...ector-base.html

 

I've just ordered the Canon G15 and Fantasea FG15 housing, fiber optic cables and connector bases.

 

Alberto.

Hi, Alberto Faenza from Italy here.

 

I have been shooting for few years with an (old) Olympus C-7070,  PT-027 housing, 2 external YS-90 Auto connected via TTL (with Heinrichsweikamp TTL converter).

 

I have flooded my camera (shame on me!!) on my last holidays so I was looking for a replacement (a new camera and housing).

I like the Canon G15 but after reading the Anonymous TTL thread I'm a bit confused on my future choice for strobe connection(TTL or fiber optic?).

 

I cannot post the question yet as a new thread in the strobe forum, probably because I'm new.

 

Congratulations to this site which has a lot of interesting topics.

 

Alberto
