Comments about Ikelite Ikelite Substrobe DS-125 / Sync Cord / Ball & Socket Arm System - Package for Ikelite Housings:

Bought two strobe packages with an Ikelite housing for the Nikon D70. Used it last summer on east coast ocean dives and never had a problem. Strobr recycles very fast and you don't miss any of the action. Modeling light is perfect for aiming the strobes. Very durable design and easy to recharge. I can't find anything negative to say.

Comments about Ikelite Ikelite Substrobe DS-125 / Sync Cord / Ball & Socket Arm System - Package for Ikelite Housings:

Excellent strobe (I use 2 TTL strobes connected with a dual synch cord together with an EOS20D in Ikelite TTL housing). Add-on diffuser is very helpful but attenuates range so need to be removed for some distant subjects, which results in easy loss of this accessory. Only trouble with these strobes is when orientation is not adequate, resulting in underexposed photos. Batteries are very good and last for a couple of dives.

Recharging connector bad
Best Uses:
Diving
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Ikelite Ikelite Substrobe DS-125 / Sync Cord / Ball & Socket Arm System - Package for Ikelite Housings:

Recharger connector needs to be held at angle with rubber band to make contact to charge correctly.

Unit needs to be fresh water soaked a long time after diving in salt water, to prevent 'salt crusties' on battery release handle mechanism.
