In Topic: selecting strobe

23 February 2015 - 12:32 AM

+1 for the S&S, maybe you should consider the INON S2000 as well, that a fantastic little strobe. 


Your CanonS110 will fire a flash which is then transferred via a fiberoptical cable to your external strobe. 


Something that you must consider is how much power your strobe will give out. This will depend on which mode you have/use for your strobe.


If your strobe ONLY can be used in manual mode then you will have a hard time shooting with your camera in Auto mode.

Your camera will chose its settings depending on your ambient light, but if you and/or your strobe doesn't know what your camera is doing then you will end up with a lot of over/underexposed images. Not good! 


If you shoot with your camera in auto mode then I would strongly suggest that you get a strobe that can "mimic" the strobe power from your Camera. That way you will get a lot more properly exposed images. This "mimic" feature is called STTL on INON strobes, the S2000 also has it.


Believe me, for a beginner photographer that STTL mode is worth a million bucks!   


If you are comfortable with shooting in manual mode (setting your own shutterspeed, aperture and ISO), then you can of course use a strobe in manual but as I said, STTL makes your life a lot easier! ;)


I hope that helps,

Lots of greetings from Indonesia, Morten

In Topic: Favorite dive-sites in New South Wales?

I sort of figures that there would be a very small chance to see gws around Montague, my sister is a bit nervous though and I guess she needed to hear it from someone else. 


I am thinking about heading to South West Rocks as well, it seems like a really cool dive-site, better totally skip out on Foster and go Fish Rock instead?

Quick last question to this topic, any chance/risk to see great whites on the seal dives in Montague or on any of the dive-sites above?  


I do realize that the ocean is a big pond and that these fish swim great distances and could be seen almost everywhere, what I am asking is if there is any real chance to see them? 


Thanks again, and happy new year! :) 

In Topic: Focus problems, 7D, 60mm Macro+Aquatica Minidome

Dear Doug, 


Yes I use a flat port regularly for both my 60mm and my 100mm, the reason that I want to use the Minidome is that I want to shoot medium sized subjects, and since a flatport increases magnification with 33% through refraction I wont be able to fit "bigger" things in the frame without backing up too far :)


The point of using the 60mm under a dome is to be able to shoot bigger things than you can when shooting behind a flat port.


Best regards, Morten
