Fantasea Remora Strobe

Recommended Posts

I have a Fuji F31fd + housing, and have just purchased the Remora Strobe for this, set up with Optical cable link for synchronization.

Now have set up the pre-flash setting no problem …. But wonder if anyone out there has experience of using the flash ?


Couple of Q’s come to mind …


# assume I leave the diffuser permanently in place – how do I know what setting to dial in for strobe power 1—100%


# aligned to this does the camera automatically adjust the exposure dependant on % of strobe power applied ? (in conjunction with ambient light)


# any particular ‘mode’ best to use on camera … tend to use the onboard Underwater mode, although without flash I have often used manual, set to -1ev and manual white balance, although would seem superfluous with a strobe.


# don't yet have the LED focus light - is this worthwhile?


Keen to have any tips.

You determine the pre-flash setting by taking a photo of the strobe, I think it might be #2, can't remember. I took the diffuser off, and taped over the inside of the housing with black tape except for an area fort he f/o cord to attach to.


No, you will need to adjust exposure manually, either iwhtt he strobe or cacmera, thus I'd use it on manual or one of the priority modes.


A focus light is generally a good idea. It allows the camera to lock focus and for you to see to frame faster.


Please see my blog article on using the F200 with this strobe.
