In Topic: stix flotation system ?

02 October 2008 - 04:23 AM

from what some divers are saying the ike with the macro port can be a bit negative,i am looking at getting 2 ds125 and with 2 strobes it will definitely be negative ,don"t know if i should go with 2- 6inch arms per strobe or 1- 9 inch per strobe thats if the stix arms work on the ike ball joint

I have the STIX 9" arms with the jumbo floats and I also bought the Macro belt for my 100mm. They work great.
I have a Canon 30D in Ikelite Housing w/2 DS125's....yes it is negative, I don't know about any air bubble, mine sinks.

They have 1" ball joints just like ULCS so if that is the size of your clamps you'll have no problems. I'm going to buy more arms either the 4 or 6, haven't decided yet.

Good luck and I hope my comment helps


In Topic: IKELITE DS125 with 60mm lens

Hi everybody,

I just bought an Ikelite DS125 which I am gonna use with a 60mm lens for macro shots. I am wondering if one strobe is enough to get good results, or should I opt for a second one?



The more light the better in my book. I have the same lens and strobes. I've been very happy with all of them so far. I try to use the strobes at different angles/power settings for subtle shadows..
One strobe will work as well, by for my 2 cents get 2.

In Topic: Manatees Crystal River Sept.-Oct.

My mom lives about 30 minutes from Crystal River and goes to see the Manatees year round. Others have stated they are less in numbers which is correct, however they are around. Going with one of the reputable guide services should enable you to view/photograph some manatees.
Have fun


In Topic: Canon 30D -- Delay in Showing on Display

Never had this happen. Very strange indeed. The only time my 30D is slow is when I use a cheap CF card. Hope you can figure it out, maybe swap out battery, change what is displayed, etc. Let us know how it works out.
