I have an old dive buddy who has had bad luck with cameras going to Fiji next month. So she asks me what about a simple camera. I said the TG-5 and Oly hsg (cost ~). Now here is the tough question:

What lighting would you recommend for simplicity sake?

 

Weefine ring light, a single bright LED, or an Ike DS-51? (I also have an extra older INON D2000 mod 2, but that would be beyond her).

 

Jack at Optical Ocean has a kit with Kraken/Weefine Ring Light 1000, camera and hsg.

 

She is a great diver but cameras are sometimes a Bridge Too Far~

If you friends intent is to shoot stills and not video my suggestion would be any of the small strobes that fire using fiber optic cords. The Inon S-2000 is probably the most cost effective with a single tray and strobe arm setup. /the Weefine 1000 is more than a bit under powered. The ring light 3000 is a better option but about as expensive as a strobe and most suited to macro.

I found the Weefine 1000 more suited to macro video and the 3000 more suited to macro stills and macro video.
