I'm toying with the idea of converting an above water flash gun for diving? Can anyone think of any reasons why this is not a good idea ? Apart from the obvious !
My candidate is a Yongnuo 560 or 460 which I would use in manual mode, waterproof with an acrylic tube, a dome if my engineering skills can stretch to it and custom electronics to expose the manual power controls to a waterproof interface. As I only use my Canon S95 with a flash in manual mode I think it will work....There are a few examples out there for me to build on but i'm sure this has been thought about before...?
Thanks in advance!
BTW I'm doing it for the challenge as well as replacing my recently flooded strobe!
