Jess-check out the images from Gulen, Norway during the latest Shootout:








They were all shot in green water with similar visibility...  :good:

4" glass dome with full frame is not a great option unless you shoot at f/11 or greater.


This will be especially true with the D850's resolution. 


I would look at a 6" or 170mm dome.


There is a huge amount of info on this forum about lens choices for the D850. I would suggest having a good search around...


All the best

Actually, the type of camera is less important than how the strobe's output is being controlled. 


If you wish to shoot with manual flash output control, then the "Pre-Flash Cancellation" button should be in the in (down) position.


If you wish to shoot using TTL flash/exposure output control, the "Pre-Flash Cancellation" button should be in the out (up) position.


Of course, your camera settings control whether the camera is supplying a manual or TTL flash signal, so this needs setting in your camera menu too.

In common with many on this forum, I use Think Tank and Mindshift Gear bags to transport the camera gear as a carry on. $200 seems reasonable to cart around nearly $10K worth of gear :)


My experience is that roller bags often get weighed, whereas backpacks do not. Psychologically, if you can carry it, it can't be heavy....!


I reviewed the MindShift Gear First Light pack here: http://www.wetpixel....-firstlight-40l

I find that I can turn mine down enough. How did you have the the exposure set up? TTL or Manual? Magnets in or out? I'm sure you know this, but the Full Power option on the Z330's controls is where the Manual setting used to be!


Of course there is also the option of simply moving the strobes away from the subject a little?
