In Topic: Mounting ideas for a slave strobe?

Here is a very quick pic showing what we came up with.  This is shown here fully extended; however, when positioned on doubles, the profile is very minimal when folded down.  A buddy machined the ball mount and since I was doing a shoot for some cool UWLD products, thought I would use their clamp in the photo instead of the ones I normally use.

errbrr,

no worries about the magnet coming off...and if it does...we have much bigger problems. (grin)  I could probably pick up a set of 104's just by the magnet (that is a slight exaggeration but you get the point).  This is a much more flexible option which will allow for ease of transfering the strobe from model to model or re-position in the cave or wreck.  more info forthcoming on the water trials

To follow up on the mounting issue... A good buddy came up with a magnetic mount that will work great and keep it tucked in-between the tanks.  Granted, it only works on steel tanks but that is not an issue with the group.  This approach will not only keep a very low profile but also allow easy removal.  I thought it was a clever approach that I hadn't considered...and thus thought I would share here.

Since there have been a number of views to this, here is some info. In full disclosure and to not violate any forum rules about such a post(?), I am affiliated with the shop I mention. Deep Blue Divers just acquired a building that has two 31'dia x 25'deep pools.  Many of us that are local shooters see this as a great opportunity to hone the underwater photography skill set.  If you are passing through the area, or would like to utilize the facility for a photo shoot, give the shop a call.  You can also PM me here as well.  While there is a lot of work going in to this, it probably won't be ready for the general public for a month or so.  Just thought I'd let some of the folks here know before it hits the main-stream.
