I prefer the wider macro option in the UK, as I find the 60mm too long in murky UK waters, as it forces you to shoot through too much murk and also harder to aim and hold still because of the narrow angle view, when diving in a drysuit.

In Topic: Land based flash underwater?

14 July 2014 - 07:50 AM

Main limitation for underwater use is lack of coverage for wide angle, the bulk of the strobe housings, which limit strobe positioning, cold colour temp of the strobes, and expense/complexity of housings to give access to all the buttons/controls on the flash. 


That said, I use a housed land flash from time to time. I have an old Subal housing, that was originally bought for an SB-26, I think. But has been used down the years with that flash and then more modern flashes, such as SB-28DX, SB-600 and now SB-700.


This picture was taken with a housed land flash - to enable me to have the fast flash synch to be able to shoot with an open aperture into the sun: 



I actually did some shots this year at 1/8000th.

Very nice collection. I really like the fish behind Ele’s bike on the Thistlegorm.
