F.I.T Pro LED 2000 Video Light

07 February 2013 - 11:46 PM

Hi,

I am thinking of purchasing the F.I.T LED 2000, for my s100, fix housing and subsea +5 setup. If anybody is using this light i would appreciate any feedback regarding build quality, and general usage.

Cheers Kieran

Focusing with a subsee +5 and dive torch

25 January 2013 - 02:15 AM

Hi folks,

Please could people offer advice regarding the use of a subsee + 5 with a compact P&S and using a dive torch as a focus light.

Having read through the past forums two main issues arise because I'm a bit stupid/easily confused and a kinaesthetic learner.

What size range of critters (all of the critter) will i be able to shoot with a subsee +5 directly mounted on my Fix S100 housing?

Will an inexpensive dive torch used as a focus light and my inexperience prove too frustrating and would the Inon UCL 165(or equivalent) be a better bet, albeit less magnification.

I would like to add that i enjoy a challenge.

cheers

Kieran

Hi folks,

Having recently returned from a trip to Philippines where i took my first underwater photos i have some questions.
I was using s100 and FIX housing, shooting in manual, using the built in flash and no lenses.
Please see pics http://morefromzhong...ter-photos.html
(feedback much appreciated)

I had alot of fun and learnt alot!

The biggest problem i had was getting the S100 to focus and the obvious limitations of the flash and lens.

I am starting to think about the next items i would like to add and i am seeking advice.

I am going to continue my underwater education by shooting macro. Please could people offer suggestions for a close up lens to fit my 52mm or 67mm port. Budget options ideally.

Please tell me if this a daft idea but i would like to mount a S2000 strobe and focus light (dive torch) onto the housing via the cold shoe mount. This will keep things small and allow for single handed operation.

Any advice regarding the items required would be greatly appreciated.

PS - Malapascua was fantastic, a really quirky beautiful island where the dive business and the locals worked in harmony. We used Thresher Shark Divers and they were excellent. Employing local DMs, boat crew, hospitatlity staff etc. A fantastic week and a real priviledge to see the Thresher sharks.

Many thanks

Kieran

Philippines Advice & Recommendations

10 November 2012 - 04:20 AM

Hey Folks,

A group of 7 of us are taking a well deserved break in the Philippines for Christmas.

We would like to hear any suggestions on areas to stay in either Peurto Galera or Anilao, (Mabini?)

Some of us dive, all of us snorkel, so we are looking for somewhere laid back and not too resorty/touristy but good for diving but are not fussy about being close to dive shops.

Thoughts please!
