Sea & Sea iTTL converter

12 October 2008 - 02:12 AM

I currently have a S&S YS-90DX strobe on a Nikon D70/Aquatica and have recently started shooting macro. Prior to this I shot purely wide angle with manual strobe control. I may at some point in the future purchase a YS-250PRO strobe.
I have decided to purchase a Sea&Sea iTTL converter HOWEVER....while I am aware what the Sea&Sea website says, does anyone know from experience:
1. Is the MkIII converter campatible with the YS-250PRO?
2. Conversely, is the 250 converter compatible with the YS-90DX?
3. Finally, how possible is it to use any of the converters with BOTH these strobes together? (and would I want to?)

Many thanks!

Depth rating for Ikelite

I have recently upgraded my Aquatica housing to the stiffer spring set, and according to Aquatica the housing should now be good for 130m at least.

I have a friend who has a Ikelite housing and I was wondering whether the quoted 60m depth rating for Ikelite housings is a result of the actual housing construction/strength, or otherwise because of a limitation on the strength of the springs (weaker springs will result in buttons remaining "pressed" at depth). If the latter, do Ikelite supply the required replacement springs?


Tokina 10-17 close focus

Have a look at this shot from yesterday. The orangish speck in the centre of the frame is actually a piece of something INSIDE my dome port.

I'm shooting a D70 with a Tokina 10-17 zoom @ 17mm, inside an aquatica housing with their standard dome port.
