  1. I have a seemingly unique situation and I am not sure many people have any experience with the equipment I am about to mention, but I hope that it will get me some leads. I have an AquaTech Elite housing for my 5D3, which I use for photographing primarily salmonids in creeks and streams in Alaska and Washington state. This housing has been great as far as it's compact size and minimal weight. I want to start to move towards the marco arena to photograph juvenile salmonids and other smaller fish species, but I am finding out quickly that my strobe options are limited to a housing for a 580EX II which is offered by Aquatech. My Aquatech housing I believe uses a 10Bar 6-pin bulkhead. On the bulkhead is written "SCM6" and I am trying to use this bulkhead to use a pair of hard wired Sea and Sea strobes, as I don't think fiber optics is an option for me (no popup flash or room for a prefabbed led type trigger). The first hurdle is connecting my camera's hotshoe to the bulkhead on the inside of my housing. www.aditech-usa.com in the USA has several 10Bar hotshoe cable offerings and two for the Canon hotshoe. One is specified as a "Canon 6-Pin" and another specified as a "Canon-S6" hotshoe to bulkhead connection. I am assuming the "Canon 6-pin" is to go to something like a housed 580EX II which makes me think that the "Canon-S6" is what i want to go to my "SCM6" bulkhead? Are 6 pin connections all the same? If someone has experience with these cables the bulkhead has a 6 male pin lead to connect to the hotshoe connection. I have seen pictures of both where there's either 6 male pins on the hotshoe connection to the bulkhead and another with 6 female plugs on the hotshoe connection to the bulkhead <is what I need. Then from the SCM6 bulkhead I am guessing that I want the SUBTRONIC standard 6-pin electrical sync cord for connecting 10Bar housing to a INON or Sea & Sea strobe, non TTL offered by Aditech. (10Bar SyC-SHF6-SSM5) which would allow me to connect to Sea and Sea strobes from my 6 pin bulkhead. I guess I would be hesitant to try to switch bulkheads, and I've also noticed the DIY led setup to use optical triggers, but I would like to see if this hardwired setup will work. I would be very very very grateful for any help or advice. Thanks
