  1. Currently shooting a Nikon D100 in a Nexus housing with two (2) Sea and Sea YS-90 DX strobes which are both wired with cables. I have three lenses that I use with the associated ports: 18-35mm, 60mm, 105mm. I use a Nocturnal SLX focus light for low light/night dives. I am comfortable shooting in manual mode and use the manual zoom gear on the 60mm lense (need to order one for the 105 for my next trip). As one might expect, my photos get better each trip, but do not compare to others who use better strobes who seem to get better coverage and more light further away from the camera. I am looking to upgrade to more powerfull strobes and the Ikelite, DS125, DS160, DS200, and INON Z-240 are all in my target price range. Any recomendations on what would be the best strobes to purchase? Eventually I will be upgrading to a new camera/housing, so want to be sure what I buy now will work in the future as well. Thanks in advance!
  2. All set now - thanks for the replies!
  3. Currently have an Olympus 4040Z, Tetra housing, and twin YS-90 strobes that I have been happy with, however I have a D-100 that I would like to obtain a housing for that I can use with my existing strobes. Looking for the housing, ports, etc - what ever I need to be able to use the camera without much hassle. Please email if possible - rbhayes@tiac.net
  4. Just got back from a trip with 3 flight legs in each direction - no issues with my camera gear which included 2 strobes - even left the batteries in.
  5. Ordered the Ansmann Charger on Sunday - showed up yesterday! Yes - it does charge 12 at time. Woody from Nexus America was very responsive and a pleasure to deal with.
  6. Just got my Oly 4040, Tetra Housing, and Dual YS90DX Strobes. Everything takes AA batteries - what brand of batteries and chargers are people using? Has anyone tried the 1800 mAH NiMH batteires? What brands? How about chargers? With a need to charge 12 at a time should buy 3 chargers?
  7. Acording to Ikelite, there new housing for the CP5000 will ship in late February - strobes can be hardwired directly to the housing. You can attach the INON and Sea & Sea (part #58070) wide angle adaptors.
