Greetings All

I'm in the process of buying a new S&S NX-100 Housing for my F100 and would appreciate some advise. This is the spec I'm thinking of:

NX-100 Housing
Sigma 17-35mm lens and ports
Nikon 105mm Macro and ports
Nikon Tele converter and ports

This advise I need is around strobes and arms, do I go for ys350,ys120 and the ys30 for macro work.

Thanks in advance
Nikon F100, D70 and D200
2 X Sea & Sea Housings
2 X Ys-90 Strobes, YS-350
105mm Macro,18-35mm, 10-20mm, 28-70mm

The fun does not stop when you get old but you get old when you stop having fun!

hey Paul -

I just sold my nx100 pro housing for f100. I had this setup with a Nikon 60mm mirco nikkor lens and 1 ys120 strobe. This was enough for close up fish portraits and smaller stuff. you may want another smaller strobe just to fill in the shadows...

Im still selling my ys 120...come to think of it.. think its listed for about 300 bucks..
