Ike Ds-125 with 160??

Recommended Posts

At the moment i only have 1 strobe, the DS-125.

Is there any problems with buying a 160 and using the two together?

Shouldn't be. As near as I can see the 160 is just an 'upgraded' 125, so they should accept the 'same' setting on the TTL circuitry. The only thing I can see about it in Ike's FAQ (and this is just general advice for mismatched strobes - nothing showed up regarding the 160/125 combination that I could see specifically) is the recommendation to use the 'weaker' of mismatched strobes as the secondary (red band on the dual sync cord).

i use that setup, DS160 on the left, DS125 on the right:)

 

Me too with the red band on the right, DS125. Just did 4 days of diving at La Rascasse at Manado in July and had no problem with the DS125/DS160 setup, shot fisheye with Tokina 10-17mm, and macro with AFS60 and AFS105 on the same setup.
