    Hi S&S and people!

    I got my DS-1 and I am getting used to my new rig before getting wet.

    I am using a fiber cable to the Nauticam housing.

    So far, when taking test picture with the Sony camera, TTL mode is working perfect for normal subject but never works for Macro - Its always overexposed.

    Is it normal or am I doing something wrong here?

    What mode/settings are recommended for the Sony RX-100 as a good starting point?

    Everybody was a newbie one day :)

    Thanks !

    Patrick

    Patrick,. I have the YS-D1, Sony Rx100 and have ordered a Nauticam housing. Hopefully, we can get some guidelines, but from my experiments with the strobe and a Canon S100, you may have to turn the dial back to lower setting for macro, or work with Manual settings.
    Will try to stay in touch when I get my Housing. Hoping for trip to Truk in Feb,so want to get some ideas for settings too.
    Regards.

    Hi there! Good choice for the rig :)

    I have to say I tried it again this morning and.... Even the macro was ok in TTL mode!! My guess was that yesterday there was less light and I headed to the wardrobe.... With same positive results!

    Great! My workaround yesterday night was exactly what you suggested: manual and lowest power rating :)

    Let's keep in touch!

    HI Patrick-
    Yes, as Dave pointed out sometimes manual will need to be used depending upon the subject and situation. Also, the DS-TTLII on the YS-D1 has EV control that allows for more adjustment.
