NE Indiana underwater photographers / videographers

13 December 2014 - 10:40 AM

I thought I would put a quick post out to see how many folks on this forum live in or close to NE Indiana?  There is a BIG announcement being made by a local dive shop that will have some really neat opportunities for "shooters" in the area. 


If there are many I will provide further information next week of the 15th.



Mounting ideas for a slave strobe?

10 December 2014 - 03:11 PM

I recently started a different thread about some Ike strobes...just got three of them with one being a slave strobe.  I will be doing some pool testing prior to heading to "cave country" and was curious what others have found as a reliable mounting approach for the strobe on a set of doubles (or maybe a single tank)?  It will be attached to a 3' ext. cord and I figure I would mount the "optical eye" on the inflator as that is easy.  I'm also concerned about how tall of a profile this creates as it would almost make me cry to see the strobe ripped off from a model that might be a little off on the approach to such areas as "The Lips" at Ginnie.


Most of the folks that will be wearing the strobe will be in doubles but there might be a few single tank folks in the pool that would like a "hero" shot. 


Best regards,


Ikelite 161 or something else?

If you could choose between (2) 161's or something else, what would you choose?  If "something else" what would that be and why?  I have an opportunity to get (2) of these units but as my experience has been with video lights, being a new foray into strobes, I'm but a neophite.  I shoot mostly wide angle (caves/wrecks), no macro stuff.
