  1. My wife and I were on the Ondina for the next scheduled trip with Deb and Tony.


    Our group had several excellent, well traveled photographers onboard and I never heard a negative comment. Goes to show you how a bad apple can spoil the barrel.


    We found the trip to be exactly as advertised and it exceeded our expectations due primarily to the hard work of the excellent crew and to Deb's experience and attention for creating a "photo rich environment".


    This was by far the best "photography oriented" dive trip that we've ever taken.

  2. I'm not Karl, but I saw the photo on his camera and computer. It's not altered. I think this is a phenom where the center of a panned shot stays sharp because of the relative motion of everything else. I had the same thing happen to me when I shot the "Art Car" parade here in Houston.





    Thanks James...the image is unaltered except for a slight crop. Eric, you know me better than that ;)


    I don't really understand what's going on, but it's a shutter drag at 1/10 second on shutter priority and rear curtaiin sync


    Here's another one shot last year in bonarie




    And a couple of my favorites from Turks and Caicos





  3. Hi,

    I am about to buy one of those strobes for my new setup. On the paper they have same GN 24 and 100 degrees coverage. I would like to know if anyone has compared those two to verify it. This would help me evaluate other features such as weight, batteries, recycle time etc. I do not want to start strobe holy war, just being curios.


    Many thanks.


    DS200 GN is 38....this is a very large and very powerful strobe....much larger than the Inon

    I'm sure sorry to hear about your problems with your gear. I have to say that your story is one of the very, very, very few that we hear around here regarding negative Ikelite service.


    After dealing first hand with Ikelite for 5 years with numerous housings, strobes, etc. I have a hard time believing that these problems manifested with Ikelite. Your ranting and threats sure aren't going to get you any respect from people on this board because we know and deal with Ikelite on a regular basis. I'd be willing to bet that the true problem is upstream of Ikelite.
