Ion D-180 vs D-2000
Posted 12 April 2005 - 05:01 AM
I have a c5050 with Oly housing, and am pleased with the results but I need more light. I would start with 1 strobe and maybe move to duals. Most of my shooting would be less then 6 feet. I was looking at the DS-125 which appears to be a lot more powerful but I dont like the battery pack in the back and that you ahve to buy the charger seperate.

The D-2000 seems to me to be an upgrade from the older D-180. Both are optical triggered strobes of "similar" power, but the D-2000 has newer and more advanced circuitry, including S-TTL
You will be happy with either one when combined with your Olympus. If you can get a killer deal on the D-180, I'd say do that, otherwise, I'd recommend the D-2000.

Haven't used the D-2000 but the D-180 is excellent in manual mode (don't much care for the auto mode).
