Alternative option and maybe only one for you is to set the 2nd strobe (problematic one) on slave mode and make sure the first one is triggering it since it's cable is working fine. This implies that manual settings for the power should be used.


In Topic: acrylic vs. glass domes

Thanks all, for now I will go with acrylic since it is very small investment and then I will see in in next 2 years where it will get me.

 

It is really interesting how there is no one unified view on this question even being one of the essential ones.

Since visiting Red Sea for the first time, my advice is do it from Egypt and I think no need for the Sudan adventure (not so easy to get there, safety and eventually value when cross compared to specific parts of Egypt IMHO).

 

Again, for the first time visitors, I strongly advise liveaboards from Sharm or Marsa Alam and not Hurghada or other places due to routes. From Sharm you have "North" routes and access to Ras Mohammed and best wrecks which are just pure heaven for underwater photography. Choose your season carefully since crossings depends on weather. After "North" routes, I suggest "South" ones starting from Marsa Alam in variety of several specific destinations. I did liveaboard from Hurghada twice and I think never again but almost yearly I am back to North/South routes..

 

I suggest you to do your own homework and refer maybe to Alex Mustard's Red Sea photo workshops, as well as other photo workshops (Duxy's maybe) or just regular trips by UK dive operator he uses (skipping name but 1 min googling will reveal name). Also, don't underestimate the quality of liveaboards since they vary so choose a bit more expensive option just to be sure you'll be happy. Being keen on photography, there is a big difference in how liveaboards and their crews complement your needs.


And yes, check my UW portfolio at http://www.markodrag...er_photography/ for photos from Res Sea North route from last year while on Alex Mustard workshop
