First dive with new setup

20 January 2019 - 08:06 AM

So I went diving for the first time with my new rig, sony a7rii 28mm with 16mm conversion Ikelite housing no flash as I couldn't get my Inon z240 to work (think I have it working now). Not the best of images finding that underwater is going to be a lot harder than I thought. But can't wait to get out and do it again. Thanks everyone on the site for all the help so far.

Flash not going off

18 January 2019 - 05:20 PM

Ok so I'm completely new to underwater photography so this might be/ I hope it is something I'm doing wrong.

I have a sony a7rii with ikelite housing, and i just purchased a used inon z240. I purchased the cable from ikelite and when I connect it all the flash doesn't go off I have the flash turned on and flash on the camera all set to manually. The only flash that comes on is the modeling light. Is there a setting I have to turn on?

Ikelite strobe suggestions

04 November 2018 - 07:34 AM

So I recently purchased a sony a7rii and an ikelite housing. I now need a couple of strobes to go with this setup, but not sure which ones to get and also which ones will work with ikelite housing. I know that ikelite strobes will but they are a little more than I want to pay plus I would prefer small strobes for traveling. Will the inon z240 work or anyone have any other suggestion strobes to use.


Video lights

21 September 2018 - 07:24 AM

Ok so I'm getting my first underwater camera system, and I'm still deciding on lots of things. Right now I'm trying to decide on which type and brand of lighting, I know there is going to be lots of options.

So to begin I'm will be shooting with a Sony a7rii with a wide lens like a 16-35 f/4 and adding macro as soon as the budget allows. I think I want to get continues lighting instead of strobes since I'll be shooting both photos and lots of videos but if someone has a setup they suggest with both I'm open to ideas (was looking at the likelite ds161).

Next question is going to be about my budget. I'm hoping to get two lights and I know the more you spend the better you get but I'm not made of money yet,lol so I think my budget is somewhere in the 500 to 800 range and will definitely be looking for used gear when and where I can find it.


Strobe arms

20 September 2018 - 07:43 PM

Hi everyone I've been shooting landscape and wildlife for years and looking to get my first underwater system. I'm looking to purchase a sony a7ii and a wide angel lens. With this I'd like two get a two strobe setup been reading and trying to decide on which strobes to go with, but my question is what I should be looking for with strobe arms and mounts? Not sure which brand? Type? Length? Any advice would be appreciated.
