Fiberoptic cable length for 2 person snoot use

Recommended Posts

I've tried snoot macro shots before with some (minimal) success and feel "aiming" the snoot is most of the battle for me.

On an upcoming trip I should have the ability to do repeated macro dives with super-helpful Indonesian dive guides.
I really appreciated the recent WaterPixels article about making your own fiberoptic cable.
What would be suggested for the optimum length for a fiberoptic cable for the snoot strobe aimed by an "assistant"?

Pretty much as long as you like, Doc. What you don’t use immediately is easily just coiled up by your strobe assistant. Pick a length… 3 feet, 4 feet…. Much depends on the lens and subject and whether yiu want the assistant in the pic too!
