Hello all. Wetpixel will migrate to a new server and design in a matter of weeks (goals: speed, simplicity, and scalability). All content will migrate over except for forum attachments, private messages, and (probably) avatars. It is unfortunate that forum attachments will be lost, but I will get the old Wetpixel running on a subdomain so you can retrieve them if you need them.
Because we have changed the way logins work, everyone will be required to go through the new “Lost Password” procedure on the new server. In order to make sure this all goes smoothly, please take the time now to make sure the e-mail address in your Wetpixel profile is accurate!
Stay tuned! You’ll have a few days notice once we kick off the server migration.
Ikelite Housing and Ports - Mini-Review Posted
When the small Ikelite SLR housings for the Digital Rebel and the Nikon D100 came out, I was pleased to see that Ikelite had moved away from their 20 year old design SLR-MD housing with something new. Ike sent me a housing to try out, but due to travel plans, I never got a chance to post a full review. Since last year, I have been receiving requests from Wetpixel users for some sample photos taken using this setup with the Nikon 12-24DX lens. I've put all that I have together for a short article - really a photo presentation - showing how the new system fits together.

Nexus 1Ds MkII? And 2DX port updates…
We’ve just heard that the Nexus 2DX housing will come in two flavors: one with a “Master” port size, and one with the old F4 housing port size, so an upgrade path will be easy for both Master owners and F4 housing owners. We also hear that that the viewfinder on the D2X looks similar to the viewfinders on the D2H and F6.
We also hear from a reliable source that there may be a few Nexus Canon 1Ds Mk II housings being made. Keep your eyes peeled…
Nikkor 18mm lens and Canon 1Ds Mk II
Stephen Frink writes about using a Nikon Nikkor 18mm lens on a full-frame Canon 1Ds Mk II:
“The Nikkor 18mm lens is one of the more popular housed wide angles to ever be used underwater. Now, with the ever-expanding popularity of Canon cameras, there is nostalgia for that one particular lens, especially since Canon doesn’t offer an 18mm prime. However, there is a way to use the 18mm lens on the Canon…”
