Ike DS-50 with Remote Sensor or Synch Cord? (My continuing s
Posted 11 May 2002 - 09:39 AM
So, I finally think I am decided on the DS-50 and then I see that there is a remote sensor and a synch cord.....just another question.....
I am a relatively amateur photographer who has played around with film underwater point & shoots. My main interest is creating photographs and slide shows of trips I take.
Thank you for your help, suggestions and thoughts.

The presentation you will get is that what Cathy and Herb sell is the best that is on the market, period end of sentence. Now, maybe that is because they have tried everything and decided to sell what they believe in, or maybe what they sell is what they can get through the distribution channels available. If you do what you have said, you will probably end up with a YS-90DX (which, by the way, is what I would suggest and on top of that, I bought mine from Herb).
Don't be afraid of the YS-90DX manual control. If you can use a household dimmer switch on an overhead light, you can use a YS-90DX.
One more thing, if you decide to buy something, and you are going to the Caymans, if it is something available from Cathy Church, I would strongly suggest that you wait to buy until you get there. Their prices are great, and you can touch and feel before you hand over your plastic. Also, there is no sales tax. E-mail Herb with what you are considering, and he will tell you if he has it in stock.

If the ds125 had been available at the time, I would have gone straight for that.
I'll get the ds125 next. I often shot a non digital ikelite 50 and 200, with a housed film slr, and liked the differential lighting.
Though, the ds125 is so nice and small, I may just get 2, and sell the rest.
Actually, if I were you, I'd go straight for the 125, if I could afford it, now.
