Help with wiring

Recommended Posts

I am waiting for my new sealux Cd 200 housing for nikon D200. I would like to use my DS125s with this setup. The housing will be equiped with nikonos socket.

According to ikelite web site I was ready to order the #4104.32 /ikelite strobes and nikonos socket housing/.

The man in reefphoto advised the #4104.62 /ikelite strobes to nikonos camera or film camera/ instead that is wired on all pins.

Does anyone have experience with wiring this setup? Can anybody help with choosing the right cable?

 

Thank you

I just got a couple from reef photo, for my DS125's to Nikonos bulkhead, no TTL for me and bought Model: ike.4104.31 I'm sure if you give them a call again they sort it out for you.

Sealux offered me two wiring options for their Nikonos style (flexible pin) port: one with only two 'active' wires connected, the second with all five pins wired. I chose this latter option and have found it works fine with 2 x Ike DS125 strobes on manual settings. I believe that the cable required for this setup would be Ikleite part#: #4104.32. This is the 'blue band' cord, 'Nikonos connector to two SubStrobes'. I also found that I could get their original, non-digital cord (I have one of these too) to function by blocking the contacts as described on the Ikelite website although this is not a particularly elegant solution.

 

Here's a wiring diagram for Sealux with all 5 pins connected:

I called Ike and got the same answer: 4104.32 is the one that works with this setup.

Thanks.

Ikelite blue band sync cord 4104.32 is only wired on 4 pins : http://ikelite.com/web_pages/sync_cord_d1x.html

This one should work for me and I got this answer from Ike too. Onother advise I got was to go with 4104.62 that is wire on all 5 pins. Some say this one work too...

I think I am ordering the 4 pin blue band 4104.32.

Thank you!
