Bought a DS-51 strobe, ev control, tray, and arms from tonyinasia. Paid via paypal, was shipped the next day and received 3 days later. Everything looks brand new even though some was used.

Looking to buy a DS-51 strobe set with a tray. My ikelite housing doesn't support TTL, so I need a manual one. It's gonna be my first strobe, so I basically need a whole set. Please contact me via here or PM me.

Still looking for one. If someone just has the strobe, EV, and arm, I can buy the dual tray somewhere else.

Hey Brandon,
I too have been looking at the DS-51 as my first strobe mainly due to price, but have yet to decide. The other models Ikelite has (125, 160) have better recycle times, but they use a rechargeable battery which some people don't like. Another one that I see people using is the Inon D-2000. I'm sure there are several threads out there comparing different types. You can use this website as well to compare: http://www.digitaldi...net/strobes.php

yup, there is no affect on the firmware. you can simply turn off and on the camera and its back to its original state. there is a way to have the chdk automatically load when you turn on the camera, but i havent looked into it.

as Tjsnapper has said, some of the most useful features are the RAW, battery indicator, live histograms, overriding shutter and aperture speeds, and some of the programs that people have created (motion detectors, burst shots, etc)
