Ikelite strobe arms - standard vs. ball joint

25 December 2008 - 02:47 PM

I've just gotten my first strobe - a DS-51 for my G9 and Ikelite housing. I really love macro, so the DS-51 will do well for now, but the package I got came with the standard strobe arms. I was planning on the ball joint arms. I'm not sure if I should keep the standard arms or trade up for the ball joint arm pakage. Does anyone out there have any practical experience with either arm set up?


G9 Battery temperature

Well, I thought I was all settled on an Ikelite housing for my Canon XTi, until someone suggested that I look into a G9 instead. So, then I was pretty much sold on the G9 route after some research, but now I've heard from soneone else that he was told that the heat from the battery during operation caused a fogging problem in the Ikelite housing for this camera. I haven't seen anyone mention this, but I thought I'd put the question out there before I commit. Has anyone experienced unusual heat from the G9 battery during operation? Thanks for any input.
