Ikelite 161 or something else?

17 November 2014 - 12:08 PM

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.




AF or MF

29 January 2014 - 05:31 PM

I'm new to DSLR shooting (10 years video shooter) and was curious if autofocus is the preferred method of focus or if manual is the preferred method?  I got an Ike housing with 8" dome so that I can walk before I walk faster in the DSLR world and in the manuals it consistently refers to how auto focus is what I should shoot with.  This runs counter to everything I've ever done and was curious what those with much more experience do....


Thanks for your input,
