#401006 sale at Ikelite

Posted by water buffalo on 20 November 2018 - 12:57 PM

I stumbled upon a sale at Ikelite and thought I'd pass it on. There are 46 items including housings, trays, filters, etc. with better-than-list prices:




That link has been used for a few price reductions since at least this past summer. If you are an Ikelite user it might be worth bookmarking.


Sorry if this violates any sales rules; delete if necessary. I am not affiliated with Ikelite in any way other than being a customer.

#399310 Older DS-125 - service or replace?

If you think one strobe is not recycling as quickly as the other it should be easy to check. Set up everything inside the house, bend both strobes close to each other so you can see the ready lights, set them both to the same power level and take a picture (or three). Watch the ready lights and you'll have a better idea of what is going on.


If, in fact, one of the strobes is coming ready slower than the other, power off both strobes, switch the batteries, and try again. Either the problem will stay with a flaky strobe or it will follow the battery pack.

Have you eliminated the cable as the problem? Is it always the same strobe that doesn't fire? Is there any corrosion on the cable connectors or strobe connectors?

You mention ACR in your description of the problem. Just to clarify, ACR - Adobe Camera Raw - is an Adobe product. It has nothing to do with Nikon software. Photoshop, Photoshop Elements, Lightroom, etc., require it for raw file processing.

It is no longer recommended to use the standalone Nikon Transfer program. Use Transfer that is part of ViewNX 2. Nikon says the standalone Transfer software is "for older computers only." (You will have to click on "Nikon Transfer" or scroll down to the Nikon Transfer section to see it.)

In Nikon's description of ViewNX 2, they state (last bullet), "Please note that the transfer function will not transfer images from serial connected cameras. Use of a memory card reader is recommended." You did not mention how you were transferring, but I thought I'd mention it.

You may know all of this but I was not clear on how you were actually trying to transfer your images.
