In Topic: Sea&Sea YS-01 vs INON S2000

16 May 2017 - 07:36 AM

I have used both and find the Inon to be far more reliable for most things. If you will be doing lots of cold water diving with dry gloves then I would suggest the S&S (the Inons have really small switches) but otherwise I really like the Inons

My oldest S2000 have more than 600 dives on them and have been perfectly reliable.

If you want TTL then the magnet needs to be out of the strobe. The magnet in tells the strobe that there is no preflash.

In Topic: How to get sharper corners when using E-mount 12mm Zeiss in Ikelite housing a...

Firstly, why are you worried so much about the corners. Your photo looks fine to me and unless you are pixel peeping why worry. Secondly you can shoot at smaller apertures (like f:16) but most likely won't help too much. Getting a bigger dome will help but at a cost and pain for travel factor. Using a diopter on the lens can often help and is quite inexpensive compared to a new dome.  One thing to check on is the corner sharpness of the lens on land; test it in the garden; it can't be much better UW than it is on land.

In Topic: best style of bc photography

30 April 2017 - 09:12 PM

I think that whatever BC you buy should fit. Fit will allow you to control your buoyancy perfectly.  If you read scubaboard you will hear that the only possible solution is a backplate and wing which is fine for cold water but not terribly good for travel.  I have an aqualung back inflate (Balance) and it is fine but any one that fits well should work.
