In Topic: LED strobe trigger not enough power

08 February 2018 - 05:11 AM

Hi,
i have tested a lot of cables and strobes.
The best fibre cable i had tried, and one in use now, is the new Sea & Sea with the black plugs....
With that i can ignite the D2 via the turtle and ist a pitty i didnt got a second one before the trip.
Now i use a lang "weaker" fibre cable to connect the second D2 from the first one...
Have got a UW technics board as well for the trip, that will be tested next days.

Back home in 2 weeks, i will try to write some words about the testing and results.

Regards,
Wolfgang

In Topic: Considering upgrading

Hi,
you can upgrade a D7100 housing easy for a D7200,

only change the camera ;-))
I have the D7100 and if you look at dxomark.com, the D7200 gets good points ;-))
Even 3 more than the D500.....
And a used housing and a new, or maybe used, DX Nikon will be a lot cheaper than a new FX and a new FX housing and new lenses....

Wolfgang

Most importantly, have a cracking trip to the Red Sea. There are superb wide-angle opportunities to be had there with generally clear water and great reef and wreck structures. The Sigma 15mm or the Nikkor 16-35 were on my camera constantly on my visits there. Macro much less so - in fact, after 3 recent Red Sea trips I'm not sure I'd even bother taking macro gear.....

Hi,
there is a lot of macro, but no guides to show it like in Lembeh or Anilao.
Even pygmy seahorese and other funny stuff...

Would look for a D7100 / 7200 housing, then the other things ceep the same.
I have a D7100 too, but as a backup above water. The D500 is my primary one, but a lot more expensive...
And used housing are rare ;-))

Wolfgang
