    Ikelite DS160
  1. Thanks for that. Still undecided.... the DS160 is a very good strobe...
  2. I can't use sync cords as I would have to use a Y cord and they reportedly damage these strobes.
  3. Hope someone can help. I have a Nikon D7100 in an Ikelite case and currently use an Ikelite DS160 strobe. However, it is very heavy and I want to begin doing macro with 2 strobes. My flight case and baggage allowance will not support another DS160! Will my setup successfully support 2 x Inon Z-240 strobes, and if so, is this my best option? Grateful for any advice
  4. I get what you mean, but I was concerned if I moved, so would the fish! Although I call myself 'The Fish', underwater with my camera I'm more like 3 legged giraffe - always on the verge of colliding with something. I will have a play in PS with it and see what I can achieve. Thanks for the comments Mick
  5. Thanks for the feedback, I was a bit rushed at the time and with a very new camera, also only my 2nd sea dive and 8th dive overall since a 26+ year 'rest', so also getting used wearing a BCD rather than a horse's collar! Still at the stage of 'point and shoot', so I need to get much more familiar with the camera controls. I'll play around with it a bit more in PS. Thanks again, M
  6. This was taken on my second outing with my new camera setup (rig?), and only my 8th dive after a 26 year break! I managed to get a sequence of 4 shots in quick succession as the Burrfish entered off stage left and came around the back of the coral to hide. My strobe and flash setup was a bit hit and miss, to be honest, but I would appreciate any feedback. Depth is about 15m, location is Golden Blocks, Nr Dahab, Red Sea. Camera is an Olympus e-300 with dedicated housing - a beast! f/5.4 1/80 sec ISO-125 Focal Length 42mm Orig. Dimensions 3264x2448 Filetype Jpeg (will take RAW in future I think) Uncropped, auto level adjustment applied.
  7. Hi, my name is Michael, and although I have been taking snapshots underwater for several years, I have now purchased a more sophistacated setup, as I am diving again after a 26+ year rest! All my previous experience was during my snorkelling years, but last year I passed my SCUBA medical for the first time since I had to give up diving!
