Different brands of Fiber Optic Cable

  • Hi everyone. Noob here again. Found out that there are many different brands and types of fiber optic cables with varying prices. Can anyone shed some light what are the differences and what to look out for when buying one? I'm getting a single YS-D1 strobe for my G12 WP-DC34. Thanks in advance

  • most should be able to do the job effectively. I kinda of like the design of the F.I.T. one which i bought for my wife's compact. similar to the sea&sea design. the cable can rotate freely which reduces the stress on the cable itself. I think Nauticam has the same kind of design....

    Actually what I dont like about F.I.T one is the screw can actually rust man. I saw that on Din's cable.
