Default ys-25dx vs epoque ES 150 DS

Hi all,
Do apologise if this is another well beaten track.
I am deciding on getting strobes for my uw setup
(d40Z with PT-012). Would love to heard any experiences
with the above 2 strobes

I am approaching it from the angle that the 2 strobe,
although small should be able to handle all macro
situations and also wide angle shots where if there is
a foreground subject, it would be about 1 - 1.5m away.

Anything more than that, I guess would just have to
rely on the ambiance light and playing around with
the camera settings to get a reasonable decent shot

I know everyone seems to recommend the ys-90.
But was thinking that it might be a bit of an overkill me
my setup.

Don't know where you live, but you should be aware that Epoque USA is history (or so I hear). They are (0r have) shut down all US operations.

Support might become an issue on this side of the pond.

Thanks for the tip. Was not aware of it.
The store I went to was still pushing it.
maybe that's the reason.

Support issues aside, was it any good a strobe?
It is relative cheap (about USD220) and small
and could get into small places for those macro shots

is it worth the risk of buying it?

Can't really say... never used one. But now you know why the store was pushing it....
