Little micro strobe batch!

Recommended Posts

Hi,

i 'm not gone make new MLS anymore.
There are housing brands and types where they don't fit in and it is not easy to aim the leds into the fibers.
Also the Sea&Sea strobes sensor is not always in the middle off the fiber ... resulting in not enough light for the strobe to trigger.

greets, Hedwig.

I still have 7 pcb's left ..... so i have decided to assemble them because there is still a demand after the MLS.

Hi. I receive one mls yesterday. And it doesn't work with my seasea ys27dx :-( . I know that it shouldn't work... Did some one test With led whit or more powered ? Or change the light sensor in the flash ?

 

Edit : it work with changing settings on the strobe :-) use first light and not preflash...

Hi

 

My MLS is mount in my seasea housing... Just add a little PCB to mount LEDs.

 

I'll make a good cut of each optic fiber. It seems the strobe are sensible...

I've been using the MLS with the Canon 5D mkIII en the Sea&Sea YS-250 and YS-110a strobes. They didn't fail once on my trip to Komodo, Indonesia.

Got my Mini LED Strobe Unit from owfotograaf. And this day i got it in my new Aquatica A5Dsr UVhousing with little adaptation.

I use Inon strobes and it works perfect.

 

Thanks owfotograaf!

Still making them and ..... shooting at 4fps and 1/320

DIY PROJECT ....

if you have the space in your housing and want to use led's that consume more then 20mA (limited now by the CR2032 battery's)

.... you can fabricate this ... i use it now with D810 in Hugyfot housing. Don't forget to put a resistor serial with your led, in this case 39ohm with white and red led!!!!

... although no difference in sensibility between red and white on Sea&sea and Inon strobe. Most off the sensors are in the 600nm range, so red is the best to use.

 

 

ALSO very important: the fiber and led are aligned straight and the surfaces of the optical connector are FLAT on booth sides.

Greetings, Hedwig.

hmm will this little wonder device work with Panasonic m4/3 cameras by any chance ? :)

It should work in any hotshoe, however that battery compartment is probably too large for a m4/3 housing, you should get a CR2450 powered one.

very simple, adding "underwater" to the name warrants a few hundred % price increase :D

 

This is a full E-TTL system. Do you think the price is too high?
