In Topic: Advice needed for Olympus EPL3 - which underwater wide angle lens?

02 April 2014 - 01:45 PM

I have the Oly 9-18 and Zen-Pen on my PT-EP03 housing and find it to be an excellent combination.  I have done from close-up to CFWA with it, though I prefer the later.

Flat ports are not could for distance or wide angle in most cases one would need an adaptor but there is still a flat lens in the light path~

In Topic: Which Eneloops to use with ys-110a...2000mAh or 2500mAh?

13 March 2014 - 10:44 AM

It is not possible to burn a strobe with the wrong batteries as the delivered voltage is the same

What changes is the capacity. I use Ansmann 2500 mAh, eneloop X are also available at same capacity

The energiser batteries trickster mentions are 2300 mAh

Generally the more mAh the better however not always declared values correspond to real values

The INON manual says which battey types can be used, starting with Eneloops and equivalent "next generation" type NIMH,  other (good quality) NIMH, akalines and lithium.  then goes on to talk about high temperature, and voltage lost over time plus discharge rate.  I have successfully used Eneloops 2100 mah and lithiums non-rechargeable.

In Topic: Rather wet DS-50...

well I think the DS-50 is an anchor now, AND if Ike does not help you?  I got a pretty new DS-51 (& f/o adaptor) for sale in the Classifieds~

In Topic: Canon S95 Manual Help

15 February 2014 - 09:22 AM

I shoot the S90 on manual with an Inon D2000.  Here are some tips based on that.


Yes lower the in camera flash output using menu. 




I think the main issue is whether your strobe is shooting a preflash and the camera cannot cooperate with that?  Sounds like the camera is skiping over a preflash?


The S90 is a preflash camera in any Auto mode, but in Manual it does not work with preflash.  Can you change the Sea&Sea output?


I am assuming that the S95 is similar to S90, but believe they are.
