In Topic: How did you flood?

04 November 2013 - 10:10 PM

1. Ike Housing - Replaced button O rings and didn't get one fully seated in it's recess. Not a full flood but started to dribble at 10m. Just a sock and a lump of lead got damp.


2. Fisheye Fix housing - Trapped the corner of a silica sachet in the door seal. Trashed a G11. Would have seen it, had it been a clear housing.

That's really interesting work. Well done.

I don't ever tighten mine fully; just until it stops then back off 1/8 turn. It's a radial (piston type) seal so doesn't need any axial compression.

In Topic: Using Sea & Sea YS-D1 strobe for land use?

Unless you're doing something in a hazardous environment or throwing copious amounts of water around, I personally wouldn't risk a $600 strobe when you can get a complete studio flash kits with modelling lights cheap from Hong Kong on Ebay.

I have a set that I occasionally play with. Not full pro quality but do the job well enough. All your mounting and connection problems go away.

Note that the flash duration of all mains studio type strobes is somewhat longer than the battery operated thyristor type strobes, particularly on low power so they're not so as good for high speed (eg water droplet) capture.
