    How does the strobe on the DC1000 fire? Does the "cable" plug into the housing or does it "see" the internal flash fire and then fire?

    The Flash is a slave strobe and is fired off by the internal flash being picked up by the Fibre Optic Cable and sent to the flaashes sensor.

    SeaLife Joe... Perhaps another dumb question but is having the optic cable essential for utilizing the strobe or could you conceivably use it without one?

    You must use the fiber optic cable. The sensor is recessed into the flash head so that woudl be the only way to fire it.
