The FA-3 LED Strobe Trigger triggers underwater strobes and flashes to fire in sync with the camera using fiber optic cables.
Using the LED Strobe Trigger eliminates the need for the camera built-in flash to fire, thereby extending camera battery life and allowing for longer shooting sessions. Eliminating the camera built-in flash also keeps the camera from heating up, resulting with less condensation in humid conditions. The LED Strobe Trigger’s super quick recycle time allows for rapid shooting and triggering of the strobes without having to wait for the camera built-in flash to charge.
The FA-3 LED Strobe Trigger can be connected to any camera featuring a hot-shoe connection. It can be installed inside any camera housing offering a fiber optic slave strobe connection and sufficient space, anywhere inside the housing, for the main unit to be placed.
The FA-3 LED Strobe Trigger is also compatible with Fantasea's Mirrorless Housing models equipped with Fantasea's Hybrid Vacuum Safety System M16A
The FA-3 LED Strobe Trigger is capable of triggering most underwater strobes available in the market.
Note that when using the LED Strobe Trigger, strobe output is controlled manually only.
