Topics I've Started

leaving F707 and moving to Sony P-200

08 February 2006 - 12:06 PM

I started with a Sony F707 5.2MP for all the adjustability, but after diving with the Ikelight housing for 2 years (now nicknamed "my breadbox") I decided to move down in size, up in resolution, and increase my portability.

I picked up a Sony P-200 for the travel portability, still used Memory sticks, and Ikelight made a smaller housing for it.

I hope soon to go on my first dive with the P-200 rig attached to a DS-50 and wireless strobe relay.

What manual settings should I start with F/WB/shutter, etc? Say on a warm water 50ft dive? I know things need to be adjusted depending on your subject...but I always got washed out colors/incorrect TTL exposure or hotspots with my F707 rig.

Sony F707, great shape 5.2MP
Original Battery, plus one spare
Can't find the AC power cord, but External Battery Charger included
Orginal 32Mg stick, plus a 128Mg Sony stick
Several thread on filters, UV, Circular Polarizer, 6point star (IIRC).

Ikelite houseing for F707
Built in Strobe relay
All you need in an external Ikelite strobe with Relay Cable.
Camera's flash sets off TTL relay in the housing.

I recently purchased a Sony P200 for increase in resolution and portability.

Original on the Cam was about $1000 (clearly not anymore)
Original on the Housing was about $1000 (due to included Strobe TTL Relay)

Make an offer, or possible trade compatible with Sony P200.

PS, I know I don't have many (or any) posts here, but I only dive 2-3 times a year.
