  1. Hi, some strobe arms have a quick release build in, so you can do both: arm mounted or free hand... Sometimes its hard to adjust an arm exact how you want it, and then free hand is a possible solution. As tim mentioned, if you want back light, thats another situation, where a free strobe is needed. I have taken a seperate strobe with me, in the caves in Tulum, mexico. Only lay it on the floor with a small tray from strobe arms to adjust it, so the cave pics get more 3d light... Regards, Wolfgang
  2. Thanks Adam, a boring job that takes a lot of time for nothing.... Hope that is gone fast... Regards, Wolfgang
  3. Great video! Since years i followed these subs, got a time planner from a aqua archeological project, there these were used to discover the history of a chinese wreck from 1700... Hilti foundation and Franck Goddio... So i hope one day i can do a dive in one of these subs ;-)) Regards, Wolfgang
  4. Hi, no auto shut off. But can be used as video lights as well. Bright and powerfull, but dimmable...
  5. Hi, can make pics tomorrow. The 750 is very good, with box the 1000 is used, the switch / dial is corroded on the surface, so you cannot read the scale, but working as should. Box included. The 750 needs batteries / accu, the 1000 has a built in batterie. Dont know what is more your style... Regards, Wolfgang
  6. Hi, have a used FixLed1000 or a FixLed750. Depending what you need, want. Regards, Wolfgang
  7. Great idea!!! Last trip was the expensiest dive of my live, only one dive, before the travel agancy called us back... All the tourist based countries will have a big problem the next months... A lot of dive shops will struggle and some will close, so lets tell them they did a great job! And hopefully will do it in future too! Will ad some pics tomorrow from the compay pc. Regards, Wolfgang
  8. Sorry, translation mistake from me... In german batteries are single use, accus are rechargeable... My fault. Regards, Wolfgang
  9. Yes, the s&S 250pros are great! But heavy and bulky for airplane travelling.... I take them with me, if i can travell by car... Accus can easy bechanged to modell car accus, and there is a big range oft types and quality... For flying i use a pair of Inon Z240s, my girl friend a single Z330. And we are happy with them. Have a set of S&S D2 as well, but they are harder to ignite, the light sensor is much less sensitive than the Inons ( type 4 ). Same with the 250pros... The panels on the Z240s are a bit more tricky than the D2, thats why i bought them, specially for night and cave diving. But if they dont fire, it helps not a lot... Regards, Wolfgang
  10. Hi, actual i have a D750 and a D500, which is my favorite cam. Last trip i used a Sony A6300 underwater first time. D500 and Sony A6300 are more or less the same sensor, and age... But the difference in low light autofocus is a lot... The Sony is better in video, no question. But fast moving subjects, the D500 wins... Dont know if you know Mark Smith, he takes great bird pics, and used Nikon D500 and D850, and then changed to Sony A9 and now the new A7 IV, but allways gets back to compare. Its not so easy, specially if the use is a very small part of the cake, like under water pics... I like the idea of a leight weighted cam, but the Z6 / 7 are the first evils from Nikon, the Z50 is nice, but i think i will wait for the second edition before i think about changing.... And i have a lot of "old" lenses, some need a screw driven focus, so changing will need a good reason. Regards, Wolfgang
  11. Hi, its a virus very simmilar to the flue. But a bit more deadly. We had 25000 flue invected, dont know how many have died this year. But sure more than this one! And its allways the older or not so fit persons... A scientific pro had sayed that it is possible that this virus was around for years, but nobody had been tested for it. So if somebody died in wintertime while flue is around, nobody would have had a look for that virus... In the moment i am sitting on a tropical island, no case here... But i got a mail that i have to go home one week earlier, because there will be no more flights.... Here its save, and at home? Had to shorten the annual dive trip from 20 to 12 days before out of medical reasons. Now 7 days less.... Only spent a lot of money and had a stressy time traveling for nothing.. And thats the annual "long" holiday. Have no idea if i can get another one this year... Any we will do this and that in 3 days mean, that all the people will do it before, so no effect. If i tell you te traffic will be shut down on monday, you will leave saturday... And if infected, take it with you... Regards, Wolfgang
  12. Hi, from looking to my A6300, if you use the Dremel, you only have to cut the hinges on the outer sides of the door. Or use a fine milling cutter to remove them as close as possible to the metal axis, and then break it carefully out. So a Sony repair center can if needed, easy reinstall a new door. If possible install a vacuum cleaner close, so the plastic particles get caught. Regards, Wolfgang
  13. Hi, if you follow the problems in Italy, our neighbor state, you maybe change your mind... 100 dead people in one day... And why? Its a very family friendly / crowding country. Most of the dead persons are older than 60... Had other health issues, and the virus killed them! Means that younger, maybe not ill feeling members brought it with them, and the older had troubles with it.. Specially there it is common to travel a lot, and have contacts to tourists, like in Venice and the beach region... So any kind of virus can spread easy... And no other country has a so much deadly quote.... So please ceep the older ones seperated ( sorry dont know a better word ), as hard this sounds, and ceep them alive this way! Cancel a trip if it is necessary, and try the best to stay healthy.
  14. Hi, the price difference is not that big, and APSC is not only DSLR! If i compare an Oly OMD1 mkII with my Sony A6300 or newer. Take the same housing manufactor, and then the ports, maybe wetlens, cameras and lenses... Dont think that there is a big difference. But there is a weight difference, and thats the goal for me. Same quality but not so heavy! And if i compare the WWL-1 with my SEa & Sea ;-)) Maybe the same price but double the weight, and needs a port and lens.... Then there is no advantage of the m43 system left... Regards, Wolfgang
  15. Hi, as it was calculated for water, side by side would be the best way to test it. Can try that in Summer, when i can go by car to the sea ;-)) Have the 10 - 17mm Tokina on my Nikon D500, and the most time i used it between 14 - 17mm. Depending on the picture. But no WWl-1 for testing... And then its a question of the dome size and quality as well.... Regards, Wolfgang
