In Topic: Ikelite 8" Dome

12 March 2005 - 07:58 AM

Has anyone else tried the recommended Ike small dome (5503.50) with the 10-22 mm? I'm getting very soft corners. From reading all the info on these forums, I understand I need some extensions to match the optics, but I can't find any such extension on the website (Ike?).

Eagerly awaiting James' report on the 8" dome to see if it improves, but Ike's website says that there's no improvement in quality.

Confused,
Ben

Ike came back with some quick feedback...the lens is probably a different one, but since I'm unlikely to be shooting at 75mm anyways, it should be ok.

Thanks Rich and Ike for the education...

In Topic: +4 diopter - where to get one?

Robert -

Photoscientific was closed this afternoon, but I did manage to find a +3 diopter for 67mm somewhere else. Anyone know if this will work?

If you don't mind, please bring along your diopter just in case...worst case scenario I'll duct tape it on.

I'll talk to Mr Poon and see if I can't get better service using your name as a reference!

See ya in Raja hopefully!

In Topic: Thanks Ike! New 20D housing has arrived...!

Ike - point well taken and I probably wouldn't have thought of it till I hit the water. The Nexus housing is like a ton of bricks underwater - when I dive with it, I don't use any weights, even with a 5 mm wetsuit.

Can't wait!

Hi Robert -

I'll be on the Ondina, arrival Sorong on Thursday for a 15 day trip. Thanks very much for the kind idea of bringing the 72 mm diopters. I'd take you up on it, but the Tamron's a 67 mm diameter. But let's have a beer if our boats meet up somewhere in Raja!

I'll try PhotoScientific today. I've bought from them a few times before, and every time I swear I will never go back because of their rude service. But they do tend to have the stuff I need so I inevitably end up going back...

Best,
Ben
