Hey everyone a while back I bought a passport camera, it takes two pictures on a single 100 series packfilm print.

Works great, only issue is the strobe unit is placed right on top of the camera and gives off very ugly flat light because of it. The cord is not long enough to move it much, so I want to get an extension.


I just need to figure out what this port/connector is called, anyone have a clue?

My last resort will be just to slave some speedlights, but I'd rather use the stock strobe because it's pretty powerful. Does ISO 100,F/11,6 feet no problem!

That is really tough! I've never seen that before. Did you figure it out?

Splice the chord with more wire.

Possibly Amphenol/Cooper 126-217 connector.

Alex,
Interesting camera. Why do you want to move the flash?
Passport images are intended as identification not as portraiture.
Moving the light too far off axis may result in images that won't be acceptable as passport ID photos. :-)

On the other hand, it would be a cool Photo Booth camera with flash moved off axis.

It's mainly going to be used for a party camera, and you guessed it! Probably going to end up putting it in a booth. :D

That would be way cool.

Good luck.

I'd put as big a diffusion panel as possible in front of the light that's on the camera and then put a main off to one side and up, have the camera or flash trigger it. Easier than rewiring the existing unit.
