Ps. Lighting wide angle scenes at a distance is quite difficult with the ds51. It is better suited for cfwa.

The double arm will give more distance from the camera for strobe placement, so you can light subjects further away. For closer subjects, it will matter less. Flex/squeaky arms vs ball arms is a matter of personal preference. Have a look at the strobe arm length pinned thread in the lighting forum.

are you looking for ways to improve it in LR / photoshop, or for improvements when taking it.

 

I disagree with the squid needing more light. It could use a little less light on the eye. From a composition point of view, it would be nice if there was more of a diagonal.

My inlaws are about an hour and a half off Seahouses, so if there is a wetpixel trip there I am interested.

Pete, on my Ikelite housing for the 20D (sold now). I had sometimes this trouble. Not with my 'new' 70d housing. There are a couple of things you can try:

 

remove the eye cup from the camera if you use that : it might push the camera slightly forward

make sure you use a coin or similar to really secure the camera on the tray

you can use the little adjuster screws on the bottom to position the camera.

if the control tips inside are worn, you can buy new tips. (or turn them around to expose the fresher site. http://www.ikelite.c...ntrol-tips.html
