In Topic: Positioning Fiber Optic Snoot

24 August 2014 - 08:22 AM

All of the positions you mention will work, just be creative!  Positioning the snoots straight on will let you set your camera for a slightly darker background, but not significantly, but do max out the strobe output if you want a darker background with a properly illuminated subject.

Sorry, my buddy switched over to an Aquatica rig and sold his Ikelite stuff.  I never took a photo of the DS51 triggered setup.

Just buy a crappy used DS51 and hook it up to the strobe connector, zip tie the DS51 to your strobe arms,and slave your good strobes off of the DS51.  You should mask the DS51 with black tape to decrease backscatter.  I set up this arrangement when a friend wanted to compare Ikelite DS200 strobes to some D1 strobes using an Ike housing.

I think Buddy was assuming that the 10-17 was a rectilinear lens.

Are you using a shade on your dome port?
