In Topic: One or two Ikelite strobes?

04 May 2010 - 10:54 PM

My budget only allowed me to start with the DS51. Saved my money and now am using the DS51 and a DS161.

I got tired of having the flash from a single side. Having dual strobes does give much more even light coverage. I have the two strobes on on a dual sync cord and they play together well. The 161 is a lot larger strobe, but having the battery pack separate seems like a much better design.

I do like the movie video light built in. Makes night diving and focusing in low light a lot easier! Now I am tempted to save up and get a 2nd DS161...

I am currently shooting a G10 with an Ikelite DS51 TTL. I was considering adding a second strobe, and going with the new DS160.

Can I have both the 51 and the 160 be synced with TTL? Or will the 160 only sync with a 125/160?

I just want to say: BUMP

Great thread. Very helpful for me. I came with just the questions addressed here. Wonderful forum!

It would be fun if a couple of folks posted what their setup looks like, strobe positions, etc. as was suggested above. A picture is worth a 1000 words.
