In Topic: padded wet bags for carrying housings in dive skiffs

I put my Sea & Sea MDX-300 with 12" strobe arms in a Costco "Cooler bag".  $10 for a big and small two pack and not so bulky.

In Topic: Softbox vs. diffuser for YS-D1's

14 May 2015 - 01:26 PM

Have you tried without the diffusers?  Are you shooting large subjects or CFWA?  I have a YS-110 and a YS-D1.  I have struggled with the YS-D1 to get rid of flare, even in relatively clear water.  The YS-110 seems to have a softer edge and doesn't give me trouble.  I've gone so far as to put the YS-110 half as far from the housing, but even with both of my 12" arms extended and the strobe pointed outward a bit, I'll still get flare at full power on the D1 unless the water is crystal clear.  If you're shooting sharks or rays, try moving them all the way out and leaving off the diffusers.  If you're shooting CFWA, turn them down and make sure they're pointed out.

In Topic: Will Nikon D7200 fit straight in D7100 housings

Pictures Mark?  How does the focus speed, resolution and color representation compare with the D7100?

In Topic: D7200 is here. Different enough?

The comparison of the red channel detail between the 7200 and the 7100 is interesting.  I'm looking forward to seeing the results underwater, as the red channel is so important in strobe lit underwater shots.  Has anyone got one underwater yet?

The button looks a bit taller on the D7200 in all views.  Hope that doesn't screw up the housing fit, like the multi selector button on the D300S did for the D300.
