In Topic: Dome or wide angle lens?

10 April 2016 - 10:52 PM

I used the 9-18mm behind the zen dome port and that will ultimately give you the best results out of the options you have given.

In my opinion if it is WA you want go down that route. If you want both WA and macro go down the same route, then at a later date (will fit in the port you are now using for the 14-42) when you can afford it buy the 60mm for macro. (will fit in the port you are now using for the 14-42)


In Topic: French Polynesia without strobes? (any other advice for there)

In my opinion you will be disappointed. If you have gone to the trouble and cost of an underwater housing and dive trip like that you want something halfway decent to show for it.... Why not look at buying some strobes second hand or failing that buy some new ones for the trip and sell them after if you are not going to use them.


In Topic: Second strobe or Lens?

10 April 2016 - 10:33 PM

As everyone has said it seems first you need to make sure you know what you want to do.... IMO if you want to do WA you need the second strobe. I would buy a decent quality (you see them advertised in the classified section quite a lot)

one, if you buy a cheap one you will just end up changing it at a later date. If you buy the lens you can manage with the one strobe and I would maybe recommend one to start so you learn about how and where to position it to create good pictures before adding a second.
