Sea&sea and Nikonos connector/cables

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to get the Sea&sea or Nikonos strobe connector separately for replacement or DIY projects?

Do you want the bulkhead i.e. housing connector, those are pretty easy to find. If you mean the cable connectors then I think subtronic sells them for 35 euros. Cameras Underwater also had them but it was several years ago.

I have a Sea&Sea DX 30/60 housing for my Canon D30 that I am adapting for time lapse. I need a bulkhead connector for a Nikonos SB 102 strobe (which is being modified to hold extra batteries to power the camera for more than 10 hours). I have looked everywhere for these bulkhead connectors but can't find them. bvanant said they are easy to get...where?

 

Second problem - neither the housing or the Grip Tray has a tripod mount. Is there a modification to this housing that will allow mounting on a tripod?

 

Thanks!

I am still not understanding what you need. If it is a bulkhead for your camera housing, S&S sells them and so does Reef in several versions (http://reefphoto.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=2348). If it is the bulkhead for the strobe itself (didn't it come with one) then I don't know where to get one but you could always use one of the Reef ones and use a different cable. As for the tripod mount, have someone with a drill press drill and tap a 1/4-20 hole in your Grip Tray and you are good to go.

Thanks for the response Bill. Sorry, I must not have my terminology down. Here is a photo of what I need. Maybe you can tell me what the part is called:

and the quickest place to find one. Also, I am in the market for any SB-102 strobes, working or not. I am most interested in the strobe housing.

That is what I thought you need.

Divervision has them for $40

They have a variety of others as well but that one is for S&S. If you need the whole bit with the hotshoe then

Otherwise Ryan at Reef has some as well.

The threaded hole is M14, but any of the Nauticam, Subtronic, or Heinrichs bulkheads we stock that fit the thread will leak thanks to the conveniently placed indexing dot (thanks Sea & Sea).

 

The Sea & Sea part linked at the divervision site is one part of the equation, but there is also little pcb made to make soldering easier, and a a c-clip and o-ring to hold the insert in the bulkhead. I'd consider it to be a pretty technical diy project

Me too. That's why you guys make the big bucks.

SB-102's can frequently be found on Ebay.
