Hi,

I have a Canon G15 which I have been using for a couple of years with a Canon WP-DC48 housing and wondered if anyone could suggest

a strobe to use with it. Ideally this wouldn't be anything too big as it will have to find space in my, already fairly full, rucksack.

Many thanks

Hoppy

Hey Hoppy

 

Subject to any ideas from folks actually using the G15, you really can't go wrong with the Inons. Not too big, reliable, very popular, 4x AA batteries. The Z240 has been an u/w standard since it was introduced. They have been been replaced by the Z330 which are hard to get. But if you have a look in the Classifieds you may well be able to pick up a Z240 for a good price.

 

You might also take a look at the Inon2000 which is even smaller.

The little S-2000 is more than adequate to use with a compact camera.  It is very small so for the some the dials are hard to manipulate with gloves on.
