Hey Guys,

Does anyone here have any experience in getting an external monitor like this working with the ikelites for DSLR. I wonder if I could route the wire through one of the control glands.

I think your main problem might be finding a DSLR that will accept an external monitor...are there any?

Sony does:

Works on the A33, A55, A35, and I believe the new A65 and A77 as well.

Current rig: Sony SLT-alpha55 in Ikelite housing, Sigma 105mm f2.8 DC Macro w/ Ike 5505.58 flat port or Sigma 8-16mm f/4.5-5.6 DC HSM behind UWCamStuff custom 5" mini-dome. Dual INON z240 Type IVs triggered with DS51 for TTL mimicry, or DS51 alone with home-made ringflash assy for macro.

 

Topside, unhoused: Sony SLT-alpha99, Sigma 150-500mm + 1.4TC (Saving for Sony 70-400 G2), Sigma 15mm diagonal fish, Sony 24-70mm f2.8 CZ, Tamron 180mm f2.8 Macro...all the gear and nary a clue...

I guess it could be done then. Waterproofing the lead via a gland would certainly be doable, but getting the lead through the gland in the first place could prove a little problematic, especially if cutting/rejoining is required.

yeah, my camera allows for live-view output via the HDMI port (which is unaccessible since it's at the bottom).

I guess this project will have to be put on hold for the meantime.

Most of the canons have HDMI out aswell on the side. But the port is not accessible through Ikelite's housing (at least not for the 5D mk2) so you would have to modify the housing to get it to work.

Cheers,
