In Topic: Ikelite 161 or something else?

I have two DS-161's that are used in very good condition I will part with for $550 each plus shipping. Let me know if you are interested.

I think the D1 is rated about a full stop more powerful than the 160 and in my hands at least it seems to be a bit more than a full stop more powerful. Of course if that full stop is important, only you can determine.

Yes the D1 is rated for a higher guide number, but it's coverage angle is smaller. If you are shooting W/A, you will need a diffuser. So when putting a diffuser on the D1, the differences in power between the D1 and the 161 are small.

The following link will take you to the manual for the YS-110. It has instructions on page 13 and 14 for making sure your mode setting is correctly positioned.

If diffusers are used to equalize the coverage angles of other strobes, then I would answer yes, output of the 161 is as good as most of the other strobes on the market.

I switched from DS161's to YS-D1's last year. Comparable output when corrected for coverage angle, and much lighter to travel with. The YS-D1's are also easier to adjust power when shooting manual.
