first article

17 April 2013 - 11:55 AM

I went to Fiji last August and went diving off of Taveuni. This was my first time using my D700 in a housing ( other then a day snorkelling in the river near my house in Pennsylvania).  I only took two lenses- a 10-17mm tokina and a tokina 100mm f 2.8 macro because I like to travel light and those are the lenses that I had aside from telephotos. . I snorkelled a lot and did 12 dives with Jewel Bubble Divers out of Matei- a great outfit that I cant say enough about. The diving was fantastic.

 

I shoot sports on a daily basis for a newspaper but aside from one article (about Japanese exchange students visiting a local elementary school that I had to improvise six years ago when the reporter got held up in court) this is the first thing I have had published.  I  lurked here on the forums reading quite a bit and asking a few stupid questions. Turns out it was ahuge help..anyway heres my trip.

inon d2000 hosuing compatability questions

27 May 2012 - 05:27 PM

I am just starting out with U/W photography. I shoot above water as a sports photographer and am trying to sort out what route to take entering the U/W world

I will be going somewhere diveable this summer for a few weeks and want to get a setup before hand so I can practice. I have an inon d2000 strobe that works and am hoping to use it with whatever setup I go with. I am still unsure whether to put the money into a housing for my D700 or getting a P & S system like the canon g12 or a 4/3rds like the Oly Ep-1.

So my question is it possible to use the Inon D2000 as a strobe with the ikelite housings for the G12 or D700 or the Olympus or Canon housings for their respective cameras? If so how could I go about that.

I know thats a wide range of cameras and housings but I am still in the process of figuring out what I will be doing and whether I can use this strobe will influence by decision.

thanks
