In Topic: Ikelite DS161 strobe with RX100 in Meikon

16 October 2014 - 11:32 PM

I'm not 100% sure but I think the TTL converter of Heinrichsweikamp should work. I guess the sony RX100 uses a similar simple flash protocol as my sony nex-5. I also have a meike housing and I use an ikelite strobe (51S) with their digital adapter. It works well. However, you will need a special cord with one end nikonos, the other end ikelite. You can find information about the converter here:

sigma has 3 more cheap AF prime lenses with excellent quality that missing from the list. Tamron has also 2 zooms (more or less the same) and Samyang has many good quality cheap MF lenses.

I don't see the point why not to go for the A6000 (if housings would be available). The "lack of lenses" argument for sony is not really valid anymore. Some test shoots with the zeiss macro are availble on the net and they are promising. The arrival is delayed but it will be very soon I guess. The 30mm macro is also an excellent lens. Back to the film days 50mm macro was a normal, frequently used lens. 90mm macro lens is also on the roadmap. I think the wide angle options are also quite OK for sony including fisheye, Zeiss Touit 12mm, 10-18mm high quality zoom.

Considering the excellent sensor, fast AF, good EVF and moderate price, the sony A6000 is (in my opinion) the best buy mirrorless camera for underwater.
