In Topic: Purchase decision: two S&S YS-110a's or one YS-D1?

My point of view is that since u shoot exclusively Marco. Go with the d1 as you already have a sola light to help with shadow you will cast when u put the strobe on one side. Then slowly save up... And get the other d1 later

And go manual... :)

The Nauticam does not give u full control of the aperture , ISO and shutter speed.

The sea and sea and recsea Alu housing allow full control of all 3 settings.

As long as u have the button at the back and able to turn the front dial. Then u can the most control 2 of the 3 settings.

In Topic: GoPro/still camera combo?

02 January 2015 - 06:45 AM


this is from an older set up.
Its a GoPro tripod mount and a hot|cold shoe to quater inch. Combine.

I can't find the link... as I am replying on mobile now. When I do. I will update.

You can't put any focus light on the hot shoe with this option. For that I DIY something that mounts the GoPro on top of my focus light... but it gets tall... but I have ways to turn down the height. As it mounted on the hot shoe as your link shows.

The GoPro used to give the tripod mount with the camera. They stop doing that now.

Get a hero 4 silver... it has a inbuilt LCD.. let u koe how much light you need!! :)

Its all about what environment you are divig in... if its mostly caves .. then I will forget about the GoPro attached to camera set up. As you Wil need lights... lots of it...

Else... The reef recreational diving.. its good to have.

I have a similar set up... but I sometimes take it ouy and do some shooting of Marco subject at `play`while I take stills on the main camera.

Things to consider before u buy that GoPro. Many if u can think of more then that onr useage for GoPro( for scuba)... u will just buy the GoPro and the othet set up... and keep it when u need it! :)

Btw.. there is way cheaper option then the link u provide... it has its limitation... but still works fine
