Does anyone know where I can get the special D-ring for a ScubaPro cam band? It is a bit more complex than just a normal D-ring. The place I purchased the cam band has full assemblies, but no parts.

Eric:

 

I'm in Maui, sitting back between dive days, killing time, what a better place to spend time (wetpixel).

I know this is an old post, but looking at the D ring, I would have to wonder how it was manufactured.  If I needed the same one, I'd probably make it in two pieces of stainless steel and then weld the two pieces together, I can't imagine putting the pieces together then doing the final bends into the tube.

 

BTW, had a chance to attend one of your seminars a few years ago, you have improved my lighting and reduced backscatter. 

 

I've been a diver since the 60's and have machine shop skills, have built housings, etc.  I just modified an Ikelite housing made for a Canon 7D into one that would accept a 7D mII, Ikelite said it wouldn't work, never give up.

I think I'd look for a used strap, preferably in horrible shape and cheap (eBay?), and cut the ring off.....

Scubapro dealers can get those...I got a price from my dealer for him a long time ago, sent a pm, and got no reply...
