  2. I just had my sea & sea ys-d2 strobe die on me and am looking for advice on replacement strobes. I've been looking at the inon z330 and the retra pro. I've talked to a couple of places and haven't gotten much help. One said the reliability of the retra pros is unknown because they are too new and they recommended the inons. Another place said my current ys-d2 strobes were more powerful than the new retra pros, which doesn't seem right. I've also read there's an issue with ttl with the retra pros. Does anyone have insights into the reliability of the inon z330 or the retra pro strobes? I'm interested in all good, bad, and dispelling information about these two strobes or any other strobes I should consider. Delia

  11. Hi guys, I've been doing photography above water for 10+ years, and would like to be able to take photos underwater as well, as I've been diving for 5. I''ve bought the TG-6 and housing combo from Olympus, a WeeFine WFL-02 wide angle wet lens and a tray, to keep it compact and, not spend to much cash. I don't see myself doing alot of macro, topsides I like shooting landscapes and the odd animal, but never super closeup. After reading alot of guides, and watching videos I've come to the conclusion, that I probably won't be satisfied without having some strobes, but I'm having a hard time deciding if I really should spend the cash on strobes or not at this time. Seeing as I'm just starting doing UW photography, I'm worried that the addition of strobes would make everything too complex, but at the same time, I'm worried that the result without having strobes would leave me unsatisfied, or require heavy editing for decent results. So my question is, should I buy strobes or not?

  13. Hi, I own a YS-110 alpha strobe that I use with a filber optic cable but ,now, I would like to have 2 strobes in my setup. I have the possibility to get a second one used for around 130€ or a set of 2 used YS-01 for 520€. The specs look very similar to me (except the possibility to use an electric cable that I don't use anyway). The first option would be, of course the cheapest, but is there a real benefit to choose the second one and sell my YS-110 alpha ? Thanks for your help,

  19. It is a few years that am shooting with warming diffusers on my Inon, having moved to sea and sea that do not have such a thing I had to find alternative solutions As I was at it I started experimenting with other techniques including cooling diffusers to get better colour and then finally combining with magic filters for still images I wrote the whole blurb here if anyone wants to look into the details...https://interceptor121.com/2019/09/29/creative-strobe-filters-for-wide-angle/ Having said that are there any other strobe diffusers other than blue filter for fluoro dives?

  23. Hi everyone Ive been around the forum for a while but never posted before. Im in a bit of a quandary, I have a nice 5DmkIV but no experience or equipment for underwater. To date Ive used go pros and recently purchased the 7 black. Im by no means a professional, I like to take photos blow them up and hang them on the wall and in a coffee table book I put together but thats it. Ive read a lot of good stuff on the TG5, and Ive been watching some underwater housings for my canon, but the more I read and learn the more indecisive I get. I have a dive trip to Bimini to swim with hammerheads in a couple weeks, from what Ive heard thats only 15-25 feet deep and want to take some great photos! Debating if strobes would be necessary and toying with getting strobes for the GoPro? Is that silly? Then I have a trip to Fiji next month which Id like to bring some equipment, but dont really want to lug a huge pelican case across the planet. Is there a efficient backpack size setup for my Canon that I can get? Does anyone have experience with a GoPro and strobes? Is the Olympus significantly better than the GoPro? Does anyone have any tips for hammerheads? Ive read a few posts. Also is anyone selling an old housing or set up that would fit my mkIV. Thanks for any and all responses, I feel like im out of my depth here.
  24. Two Sci-Fi Strobes. While collecting information on our beloved and often frustrating underwater strobes (1), I came across two ‘back from the future’ strobes which may be of interest to Wetpixel members, one maybe for underwater use, the other to photograph a bullet as it shoots out of your favorite gun. They seem to be of interest as they may portend the kind of underwater strobes in our future. First, here is the just released Vela Strobe, compact, elegantly designed, with four AA batteries to power it for all day use. I quote its description (2): “The Vela One is the fastest flash you can buy. Take pin-sharp photos of supersonic bullets and explosions using a normal SLR. The pulse width is adjustable between 500ns (1/2,000,000 sec) and 5µs (1/200,000 sec), which is fast enough to freeze a high velocity rifle bullet in flight. It can flash continuously at up to 50fps, and burst at up to 100kHz. This extremely short pulse means it needs to be orders of magnitude brighter than other LED flashes to achieve a usable exposure. The Vela One boasts nine ultra-bright 5000 lm chip-on-board LEDs, which are boosted over 2000%, giving peak flux of up to 1 million lumens.” (Please see Footnote 1) The second strobe exists only as a two year old patent application (3) designed, maybe for deep diving submersibles, to work underwater at depths of 1,000 meters (3,281 feet) and to emit up to 30,000 lumens using a compact panel of 108 LED chips, in a hand-held light and photographic flash. The interesting idea is the use of a microprocessor to set and maintain a constant voltage to fire the LEDs (Footnote 2).. Comment: Given the Vela’s small size, low power consumption and ultra-fast flashes, let us hope it soon re-incarnates as an all-solid state underwater photo strobe. Notably, these two strobes of the future are built around, not flash tubes, but high lumen LED’s (4). -- Footnote 1: The Vela brochure is instructive on how to design a high performance strobe: “THE VELA SOLUTION: A MILLION LUMENS For pin-sharp shots you need a much faster flash, and the Vela One is 100 times faster. With a flash speed starting at 1/2,000,000 second, or 500 nanoseconds, the Vela One will stop a supersonic, high velocity rifle bullet in its tracks. We've all seen the beautiful high speed shots of bullets passing through playing cards and apples. If you want to take these sort of photos today, you will either need a high speed camera costing tens of thousands of dollars, or a dangerous and expensive air gap flash. These use a high voltage spark to generate the short, bright flash needed. As they run at over 25,000 volts and need regular and dangerous electrode replacement, it's not surprising you can't buy them commercially. If you want one you either need to buy a vintage one for thousands of dollars, or you must build one yourself. Many super talented people have done this, but it's not an option for most of us. We wanted to solve this. To solve the problem we turned to LEDs. Until now this has been impossible, as high speed flashes need to be extremely bright in order to get enough light onto your sensor in such a short period. We worked out we'd need to aim for up to one million lumens. If we used regular ultra-bright (500lm) LEDs we would need around 2000 to achieve this. This is obviously far too expensive and impractical. Instead we turned to the latest "chip-on-board" LEDs. These are designed for applications such as exterior lighting of large buildings. Even at ten times the brightness of the regular LEDs we'd need 200 of them, which is still far too expensive and impractical. This is where we had to get clever. After months of experimenting with different circuits and LEDs, we have built a circuit that drives nine LEDs up to 20 times brighter than rated, without damaging them or overheating, pumping out up to one million lumens. We've flashed our test units hundreds of thousands of times, and they power on through. That's years of normal use, and far longer than a speedlight will last. (2) Footnote 2: This strobe is designed for a depth of 1,000 meters and does not seem to fulfill a real time need, but who am I to say. References: 1.

  25. These strobes have only been used on 8 dive trips and work perfectly. When not used, the batteries have been properly maintained. The package includes 2 s6 cabels and rechargers for the batteries as well as diffusers. I paid $5942 USD and I am asking $2500 USD. I will accept PayPal and the buyer must pay for shipping. Please enquire further for photos.
