In Topic: Lighting for my housing

19 May 2009 - 11:08 PM

Being this is my first housing and lighting set up I dont have the big budget (under USD 1000 for the lights), At this time Ikelite Pro lite 3 100w is looking the best value for money. I have spent alot of time looking around at products and reviews since putting up this post, thanks everyone for your input its been a great help.

Josh, I think it'll be much easier to recommend a system if you told us your budget, usage and size requirements. Otherwise people will just start suggesting what they have which may not help you at all.

Ron and Tman, are you suggesting Steve is ...errr... old skool? :) :)

NiMH batteries have been out for a long time. I've been using them for the last 10-12 years at least. Before that was NiCd and lead acid, which are toxic and NiCd is now (or going to be) even banned in the EU.

Sure putting the batteries on the bottom of the housing for lights is nice for macro except the pods don't allow the housing to get down low... which sometimes is more important than the diver getting down low.
Furthermore, to get brighter lighting for WA, the battery pack has to be bigger. If one looks at the Gates setup for the Squid 250, the battery packs are also on the housing. This helps with inertia and handling but balance will have to be adjusted based on lens setup and also overall buoyancy. No free lunches.

I have a Sigma 14 mm lens for Nikon. It was serviced last year and has hardly been used since.
It is in good condition with only some minor rubbing from the aperture ring in my housing.
I am asking $325.00 U.S. Plus postage...

Thanks!
