In Topic: Nauticam for Sony A6500 and strobes (help needed)

31 January 2018 - 08:00 AM

Hi friends,

 

I'm considering a Sony A6500 in a Nauticam housing, but I have a lot of doubts about the strobes.

 

1- I want to use my actual Ikelite strobes DS160 and DS161. It seems the TTL will work only with fiber optic cables, am I wrong?

 

2- If that is true, there is no Nauticam led trigger to avoid the recycle time of the internal camera flashlight.

Do someone knows if the Fantasea one (http://www.fantasea..../it.A/id.748/.f) will WORK and FIT into Nauticam A6500 housing??

 

3- If in the future i want to replace the Ikelite strobes for Inon Z330 or Z240: can I use the same fiber optic cables? do i have to purchase anything else?

 

Sorry if someone thinks these are silly questions, but I'm coming from a Nikon reflex, Ikelite housing and wired strobes, so I'm really lost in the compatibility setup, changing EVERYTHING.

 

Any answer will be very helpfull for me, thanks!!

Why do you exclude the ikelite housing? It would support perfectly your strobes.

Great. Unfortunately wifi based wireless won't work underwater.

Sure, it's a specific tool but there are lots of good ultra-wide (weitwinkel) options in small size. I've just started to use Yi 4K and it's quite good, but I feel those action cams too wide. I've tried to implement some wide macro option to my gopro or yi but I haven't found any quality solution. Probably I won't buy the sony RX0, because it's too expensive, but I see many professional application (mainly multicam things) for this camera in underwater filming.

For an amateur, like me, the Sealife DC2000 would be a better option.

"Does the $700 price tag include the 330ft housing?"

I think not. I agree that it's a bit expensive.
