I'm selling my Ikelite Fiber-Optic Converter for DS Substrobes and LED Triggers. I used this to attach a fiber optic sync cable to my Ikelite DS161 Strobe (also for sale) An upgrade to their 4401 Fiber Optic Adapter, Ikelite's Fiber-Optic Converter does everything that the previous model did and is also sensitive enough to work with internal electrical-to-optical LED flash triggers. These triggers are found in Sea & Sea and Nauticam housings, among others. The converter adapts the electrical bulkhead of any Ikelite DS strobe into a fiber-optic port. Updated electronics make this converter capable of accurately reading the LED signals for fast and reliable triggering. Like the original Fiber Optic Adapter, it is also compatible with any system where the camera's built-in flash can be detected by a fiber-optic cable. The converter automatically configures itself for compatibility with both pre-flash and non pre-flash camera modes, so there's no setting of small switches or confusion over number of pre-flashes. Simply turn on your strobe and take one picture to configure. This device is a non-TTL, manual exposure unit capable of supporting a single strobe. It works with Ikelite's DS50, DS51, DS125, DS160, and DS161 Substrobes. The converter features a depth rating of 295'. Converts the electrical bulkhead of any Ikelite DS strobe into a fiber-optic port. Offers all the capabilities and functionality of the earlier 4401 Fiber Optic Adapter. Features heightened sensitivity for use specifically with Sea & Sea, Nauticam, and other housings with internal electrical-to-optical LED flash triggers. These devices translate camera's electrical signals into a series of LED flashes, which are much dimmer than traditional built-in camera flash. Updated electronics make this converter capable of accurately reading the LED signals for fast and reliable triggering. Compatible with any system where the camera's built-in flash can be detected by a fiber-optic cable. Automatically configures itself for compatibility with both pre-flash and non pre-flash camera modes, so there's no setting of small switches or confusion over number of pre-flashes. Simply turn on your strobe and take one picture to configure. Non-TTL, manual exposure device capable of supporting a single strobe. The strobe's output may be adjusted using its built-in manual power settings. Works with Ikelite's DS50, DS51, DS125, DS160, and DS161 Substrobes. Compatible with the following fiber-optic cables: Ikelite 4501, INON Optical D L-type, Sea & Sea 50107 L-type, Olympus PTCB-E02, Nauticam to INON 26211, Nauticam to Sea & Sea 26212.

DIY Fiberoptic Strobe Cable for the Olympus Tough Housing To add a strobe to my Olympus Tough housing (ref 1) I made an inexpensive fiberoptic cable and a minor modification to the housing. The Olympus Tough PT 056 and 058 housing has a plug-on black plastic adapter for a Sea&Sea-type fiberoptic cable Photo 1 But this adapter obstructs the flash from camera’s built-in strobe such that it does not light the subject, it is also easy to lose and is expensive (PFCA-02 and -03 Optical Fiber Cable Adapter). (As some strobes with a sensitive flash trigger may not need a fiber optic cable, it is a good idea to first test the housing with a mounted strobe and no cable.) The approach described here is to plug the DIY fiberoptic cable directly into the housing’s flash diffuser, with no cable adapter, so that the camera’s flash can light the subject. Photo 2 Details: a. The fiberoptic cable is a Toshiba Toslink cable (ref 1), with both ends cut off with scissors or a razor. To coil the cable permanently wind it around a tube or round rod and secure in place with tape or string, then immerse it in boiling water for one minute (ref 3, I do not know if boiling might impair light transmission by the fiber). Photo 3 b. With a sharp razor, shave lengthwise one end of the cable’s black sheath to uncover about 5 mm of the optic fiber Photo 4 The bare optic fiber captures the camera’s flash to trigger the strobe. c. The shaved end of the cable fits tightly into a channel or groove cut into the plastic light diffuser (Photo 1). The diffuser is unscrewed from the housing with a small Phillips screwdriver and a groove is cut into the back, facing the housing, surface of its outer edge (Photo 2). I cut this groove with a Dremel grinding bit; a small saw or a round file can also be used. d. A Sea&Sea type plug, or similar is fitted on the cable’s strobe end (ref 1, also Parts). The fiberoptic cable is pushed into the groove for use and can be pulled out for storage or travel. References: 1.
