Canon G6 w/ Ikelite Housing TTL & DS-50 Strobe

25 May 2006 - 03:53 AM

I have a Canon G6 camera with an Ikelite 6145 housing that was upgraded to a 6146 housing (HAS FULL TTL FUNCTIONALITY) by Ikelite (about 5 months ago) with the TTL cable and a DS-50 substrobe (plus a few extra o-rings) for sale. Everything you need to start taking good underwater photos with color. I have used this rig approximately 4 times at depths greater than 50 feet and about 6 times at 15 or less feet. All mostly on my last trip. Everything is in perfect working condition and has always been well cared for. Only reason I am selling is because I don't get to use it much. Please see my eBay username clintroberts for my perfect rating. I would rather sell here than put it on eBay because this is such a nice piece of equipment. E-mail me at clint@robertscj.com or call me at (817) 800-1077. Thanks!

Online Auto Processing/Printing for Large Groups

04 November 2005 - 08:33 AM

I work in a park in Central America where a large number of cruise passengers tourist go through a park with birds and monkey and scenery and my team of photographers take pictures and print out. The model of 200 tourist with 2-3 pics per person is too large to handle with 3 printers and viewing especially when the late groups have to get on the bus. So I would like to offer an online photo viewing, then printing and then shipping service for when they arrive back home. Anyplace stand out in your mind that could handle 500 pics a day 3 times a week 30 weeks out of the year that has an excellent user interface for me to upload but especially for the end user say something like a dedicated web page. Thanks, Clint


Dumb Question: SLR using LCD

Can you use the LCD screen to frame a picture on the Rebel XT or only the viewfinder.

Basic Strobe Set-up/Placement

29 September 2005 - 12:31 PM

Okay I've seen picture set-ups for everyone's high dollar rigs with dual strobes using ballmounts with them set wide on each side. But if one was going to take shots with one DS-50 using the regular arm from Ikelite, should I place the strobe directly above (high or low) or beside (high or low) or wide (even). Is it better for the strobe to be even with the front of the camera lens or a little in front or behind. I plan on taking primarly pictures of people snorkeling underwater (I'll be maintianing position at 5 ft under water to shoot up), and then fish and reef shots at 40-50 feet when diving. Will these two different scenarios require different placement. Sorry for the basic question, I just have only seen the more elaborate set-ups and would like a little basic theory on strobe placement/angling. Is one constantly adjusting the strobe depending on which shot is coming available or do most keep their strobes set for most of the dive.
