Price difference on a new Canon 20D

02 April 2005 - 05:45 PM

After using my 5060 setup for a year I realize that I am hooked and will buy a Canon 20d soon. I am still new at this and was wondering why I can purchase the 20d (body only) online for $749.00 at BestChoiceDigital or spend $1244.00 at a place like 42nd Street Photo. Is this some kind of a set up? Those with expierience with buying this type of equipment I would love to hear what you have to say. If they are gray market cameras does this make them more likely to have problems? The rest of the setup will come from Ryan have not decided on Ikelite or Subdal. Thanks for your imput. B)

Do I need a modeling light with 5060 setup?

06 December 2004 - 09:24 AM

I have posted this question on another board and recieved no replys. Perhaps someone here can provide some imput. I have recently joined the world of digital photography. My setup or "rig" is an OLy 5060 with Ikelite housing single handle tray with a DS-125 TTL strobe. Although I hate the lag of the 5060 my last photos from the T&C (Turks&Caicos) were not bad and I did see an improvement. Yet my last trip, I was land based and never did a night dive. In Feb. I will be on the T&C Aggressor and would like some information from those that have experience. Do I need a model light or is the DS-125 light enough? I have been a lurker on these boards for years, so yes I have checked archives! I was thinking about the UK Sun Cannon 100. My problem is that all other night dives I have ever done I have always used a small light as not to scare the critters of the night. Is this flashlight too much, or is it a good combination for my camera. I was also thinking that this light would help during the day to help shoot in low light conditions. If I went this direction I would buy a dual tray with Ultralight attachments for UK 100. I have contacted Ryan for his imput and I wait for your comments-thanks. David
