The Fiber Optic Converter features heightened sensitivity for use specifically with SEA&SEA or Nauticam housings with internal electrical-to-optical flash triggering devices. These devices translate the camera's electrical signals into a series of LED flashes which are much less bright than a traditional built-in camera flash.
Compared to the Fiber Optic Adapter (1st Gen), upgraded electronics make this Converter capable of accurately reading these signals for fast and reliable triggering with these devices. Like the original Fiber Optic Adapter (1st Gen), the Fiber Optic Converter is also compatible with any system where the camera's built-in flash can be seen by a fiber optic cord.
The Fiber Optic Adaptor converts the electrical bulkhead of any Ikelite DS Substrobe into a fiber optic port. This adaptor is a manual exposure (non-TTL) trigger only. The strobe's output must be adjusted using the manual power settings built into the strobe (varies by model).
The Fiber Optic Adaptor automatically configures itself for compatibility with both pre-flash and non pre-flash camera modes. No setting of small switches or confusion over number of pre-flashes. Simply turn on your Substrobe and take one picture to configure.
An individual Fiber Optic Adaptor is needed for each Substrobe. Use of two Substrobes requires two Fiber Optic Adaptors.
