  1. Sorry to revive a dead thread but I am wondering if others could share photos of their work using the subject ring light. I just got into Underwater Photography and I have a small budget. I'm shooting on a Sony RX100Va In a Fantasea FRX100VA Vaccum housing. I also have a Inon UCL165 ,(+3 diopter) I can mount to my housing. For lighting in am currently using my Kraken Hydra FRS 1000 WSR+ (handheld flash light) mounted to the cold shoe, I've also experimented with the onboard flash. The lighting is just okay. I'm looking to step up my photography but only have a small budget.
  2. I will go ahead and pass on your offer. I am looking to get more into photography than I am video. Good luck with your sale.
  3. Ahh, thanks for the info. I am only diving in about 40ft (10-15m) of water. Let me think about this purchase as I'm putting together my first photography rig.
  4. I'm looking to build an imaging rig for a Sony RX100, can these lights be used as a strobe as well?
  5. Would the SOLA 3800 lights be useable for photography? There is a set for sale in the classifieds section.
  6. I would agree with the above. The 18-135 will be very difficult to use underwater. You might want to consider the 18-105 f4; it might be a bit slow for underwater but it's an amazing lens above water. I also happen to be selling my 18-105 lens if you find yourself interested in it. I used it 2x times before moving up to the A7iii (full frame camera).
  7. I recently bought the RX100Va. I chose the VA over the Vi and Vii for the f1.8 lens, the Vi and Vii have a f2.8 lens as it's fastest apature. Other than the apature and the focal length there isn't much change between VA (24-70mm) and Vi and Vii (24-200mm). Here is the comparison of the VA vs VI: https://cameradecision.com/compare/Sony-Cyber-shot-DSC-RX100-VI-vs-Sony-Cyber-shot-DSC-RX100-V Here is the comparison of the VA vs VII: https://cameradecision.com/compare/Sony-Cyber-shot-DSC-RX100-VII-vs-Sony-Cyber-shot-DSC-RX100-V
  8. I was not too sure what size arms I should go with. I mostly used the 5" arm as a place holder so I cod build a rough system and corresponding budget. What is the reasoning for the 1x 5" and 1x 8" arm on each side?
  9. Okay sounds good. I will take a look at the sea&sea stuff. I forget who reccomend the S2000 but they enjoyed the performance.

  11. Would you be able to review the attached document to see if there is anything I have missed. I think I have pieced together a complete underwater system. Im planning to start with a single strobe to learn the basics then add on a dual strobe as funds allow or needs require. I appreciate your assistance. Underwater Lights.xlsx
  12. Hello all, I am in the process of procuring the parts for a Sony RX100VA imaging rig. I have the RX100 inside a Fantasea FRX100VA VAC (Vaccum housing). I also have a Kraken Hydra 1000-WSR+ hand held light. I am looking for suggestions on for a dual handle tray, arms, strobes, macro and wide angle lenses. You know, basically I'm looking for the whole sha-bang. I would like to start with one strobe for now and then get the second strobe as funds allow, unless there is a deal that's too good to pass up.
  13. Hello all, I'm a newish diver from Southern California USA. I'm an experienced photographer, I prefer landscape, nightscape, and long exposure imaging but I wanted to have a reason to blow a ton of money with the challange of underwater photography (joking well kind of). I also do part time wedding photography and videography with a local company. I image on a Sony A7iii on the surface and a Sony RX100VA inside a Fantasea FRX100VA VAC housing when I am in the water. I'm still in the process of building up my RX100 imaging rig while I gain dive experience. Any leads on good quality used parts would be awesome.
