In Topic: Decided S100. ikelite or canon case?

Anyone think the AF35 is a good inexpensive strobe. Seems the auto function should be good in theory.


Definitely go with the Ikelite or other. The biggest problem with the Canon IMO is that it doesn't allow for aperture control once the camera is in the housing (where as the ikelite does, through the knob on the front). The Ikelite is also better constructed. It includes a 67mm thread so you can easily add macro or wide angle lens without an adapter.

As for Strobe, I had the AF35 and it works well, but I'd advise against only because once you've started taking pictures and really want to get some better, or maybe add a wide angle lens to your set up, you'll start to see that you are very limited with the AF35. You can't pull it too far from the camera and its not the most powerful. I would say spend the few extra bucks to get a slightly nicer strobe, otherwise you'll end up like me and spend the $$ on the first, then spend the $$ again for the new strobe!!! :lol:
