Shooting with Strobe during Night dives
Posted 10 November 2002 - 07:37 AM
I am interested to learn what configuration do people use for uw photography during night dives.
I tried using a normal halogen toshiba torch to light the subject for focus. Have to point the torch away before i take the shot else the "hot-spot" of the torch is very obvious.
The UK light canon with the wide diffuser is one of the possible solutions as it illuminates with cooler white light and does not have the hot spot problem.
Was looking for a more "light weight solution" as i think the light canon is quite heavy even underwater.

Life is a beach and then you dive.

They seems to have much less hot spot.
Not as bright as a light canon, but i only need a little light for focusing
and viewing the subject in the LCD.
As for the shot itself, it will be taken care of by the strobe.

(Yes I waited 5 minutes before turning the bulb on or off)
I have tried many other (much more expensive) HID light systems that have worked flawlessly. If you wan a good HID systems talk to a caver, and be ready to spend some real cake. I guess you get what you pay forÖ..Why do I always learn that the hard way????
