Upgrade to YS-D1 or Z240-Questions

20 April 2014 - 04:19 PM

I am about to upgrade from my trusty DS-125s to either Z240 or YS-D1. I was pretty much set on the D1s, then I ran into a bunch of posts on problems with the D1s mostly with the TTL and poor service from USA office of Sea & Sea. Now I'm reconsidering the Z240s.

My attraction to the D1 was the GN 32 since I shoot a good bit of big guys in WA and FE. I understand that the beam is narrow relative to the Z240 and that at 100 degrees, the GNs are about the same. So the Z240 would probably be fine.

My Rig: D7000 in Aquatica housing with nikonos bulkheads. I've always shot with a sync cord. I shoot WA in Manual strobe and close-up and macro in both manual and TTL. I definitely want to be able to use TTL.

Any experience or opinions would be appreciated.

PS> I'm spoiled by the excellent service from Ikelite and Aquatica over the years and don't want to buy into a situation where US service is poor.

D7000 shooting video; AF settings??

07 June 2013 - 05:54 PM

Occasionally I try to shoot a little video with my D7000. I don't seem to be able to find a set of AF mode and area settings that allow the focus to hold. I understand that the focus will never be as good as a dedicated video camcorder, but I don't seem to do very well regardless of the settings that I select. I've got to be missing something.


Would appreciate any suggestions.
