In Topic: Ikelite 161 or something else?

19 November 2014 - 01:12 PM

If I were to do it again, I might be tempted to try other strobes - mostly because the DS-160/161's are big and heavy. However, I've shooting with a pair of DS160's (essentially the same strobe as a DS-161) for a little over five years - in caves, wrecks, warmwater (without gloves) and coldwater (with dry gloves) and neither one has ever let me down. They are powerful enough for almost anything, absolutely durable and simple to use/operate - either in TTL mode or manual. Again, it is the size and weight I find a bit cumbersome at times. Unfortunately I don't have any experience with any other strobes.

Hi Tim,

 

That's a great collection of images! Lots of views I haven't seen before. Thanks for sharing. I hope I get my turn to dive and shoot there in 2017!

In Topic: Bonaire truck rental recommendations ?

14 April 2014 - 10:10 PM

We've been to Bonaire three times and wouldn't consider renting a truck from anyone other than Telerin. Easy to Google contact info. Poppy does a great job. They meet you at the airport, you sign, they hand you the keys and the parking stub (pre-paid) and you drive away. The way a car rental should be! Then you park at the airport on the day you leave, leaving the keys in the truck. That's it! Also, absolutely awesome service the two times we needed it over the course of the three trips (a soft tire on one trip and a blinky start up lock out on another - both fixed in an hour or two).

 

Also, Gary's advice is spot-on.

 

Hope that helps. Have a great trip!

Great video and well-put - technical diving certainly has changed the map on more than a few dive sites!
