thanks for the info.

Think i'll be better off getting something like
the epoque ES-150 DS or the sea and sea ys-25DX.

Any experience with these strobes?

someone else from the forums told me that
the epoque is very prone to floodings.
the o-ring at the battery cap is apparently not
very secured.
do you have that experience?
