Hi, I'm looking at an Inon D-2000 strobe for my Fuji F30 with Fuji housing. Any opinions out there on setup?
I found this, which seems like a good deal:
NON D-2000 Strobe and Flexible Arm Package
* 1 x INON D-2000 U/W Strobe
* 1 x 10Bar Adapter for INON strobes
* 1 x 10Bar Fiber Optic Cable for INON Strobes
* 1 x 10Bar 24cm Flexible Arm
* 1 x 10Bar Slot-stay Tray S (Single Flex-arm Accepted)
Any thoughts on flexible arm vs. ball arm? Recommendations for length? (24cm, 30, or 36)
What about the 10Bar fiber optic cable, how does this compare with the Inon cable? Looks like the Inon cable includes a feature to block the camera's internal flash, which seems desirable?
I really don't want to spend much more than this... I was tempted by the Fantasea Nano Flash or the SeaLife SL960D as compact, lower cost options. But from what I've read on this forum it sounds like those might not be "bargains" in the long run. On the other hand, the F30 already has good low-light capabilities, and I'm just looking for nice travel snapshots, not pro-quality images, so I don't want to go overboard.
Thanks for any recommendations.
