    I've a Nikon d200 with a sea&sea housing.

    I want to connect my two Ikelite strobes, a ds51 and a ds160, the housing as two bulkheads, can I contect booth with two separate sync cables to each bulkhead or I need to get a double sync cable ?

    thank you !!!

    Nuno A,

    If youÂ’re going to shoot TTL, you will need a TTL adapter and a dual cord. For manual flash, either two single cords or one dual cord will work.

    This assumes that the hotshoe is connected to both bulkheads, not an either/or style connection.

    Best Regards,

    Brett Foster - Ikelite

    honestly i would sell the ikelite strobes, keep the housing and use the money to get one sea sea strobe "ysd1" and latter on get another D1- D1 is the best strobe by far small and super powerfull- worth every penny - you can find them on ebay if you look hard enough for 620$ new, its soo much simpler to have same company's housing and strobe
