A Field Guide to Aquatica’s strobe connectors
Section 1: The classic Nikon type
These strobes connectors have the hot shoe soldered directly to the bulkhead connector wiring
harness itself (to the main if its a dual type connector assembly), they do not have an integrated
switchboard like the newer modular version.

18735: This is a main 5 contacts (TTL) active Nikonos type connectors coupled to a 2 contacts (manual) secondary connector with a Nikon type hot shoe. A TTL converter with compatible strobes or a housed flash can be used on the main 5 contacts connector while the secondary 2 contacts is for manual strobe(s) only.
18736:
This is a main 5 contacts active Nikonos type connectors coupled with a 3 contacts
active secondary connector with Nikon type hot shoe. This version is for older film
camera type that is only fully compatible with the Fuji S2 pro Digital camera,
NOTE: if TTL is to be used on other Nikon type digital camera housing of the
section 1, then connectors assembly (#18735) sould be used.
18812:
This is single 2 contacts active Nikonos type connector with a Nikon type hot shoe to
be used with manual single or double strobes (by using a “Y” dual strobe sync cord).
18813:
This is a double 2 contacts active Nikonos type connector with a Nikon type hot shoe
to be used with up to 2 strobes in manual only.

used in conjunction with the Ikelite # 4301 iTTL converter.
18927: This is a single 2 contacts active Ikelite type connector with a Nikon hot shoe to be
used with manual single or double strobes (by using a “Y” dual strobe sync cord).

Service department notice:
If your Aquatica Housing is provided with a main 5 pins and
possibly a secondary 2 pins active Nikonos type connector, This
will allow your Aquatica housing to benefit from the latest advance
in TTL technology provided by third party manufacturer, you must
first confirm that the underwater strobes and converter you project
using are compatible with you camera model, if not using a TTL
converter, then the strobe(s) and camera will need to be set in
manual exposure mode, still in some rare instance it might be
necessary depending on brand of strobes to mask some contact on
the hot shoe (see diagram below) to prevent the camera from
freezing and not triggering. This can be simply done using small
pieces of tape
