Nikonos Flash adapter

Recommended Posts

I still have a couple of the older Nikonos SB-400 flashes. I was wondering if is possible to  flash trigger it with some type of fiber optic adapter for manual mode only ?

Not simply!

I don't know of an opto-electrical convertor that will work on strobes with a Nikonos fitting. Ikelite do one for their DS strobes, but the strobe-side fitting is their proprietary plug. 

There are lots that work on the camera output, but these will not help.

I know Ikelite used to sell various Ikelite-to-Nikonos sync cables. Worth a check.
