First trip to Bonaire

20 March 2008 - 06:43 PM

I finally stepped up from a point and shoot and got a ike housing and ds125 strobe for my canon rebel xt. It was my first time using it in Bonaire and tons of fun! I still have a ton to learn! Check out more pictures at my flickr Here

Bonaire Questions

20 February 2008 - 02:30 PM

Hey everyone,
I will be traveling to Bonaire in a couple of weeks for the first time and have a few questions- Do you need some kind of surface marker while shore diving? If so would a safety sausage work fine or may that be confused for someone in trouble. Secondly, what type of outlets do they have American style? Thanks everyone for the help!

Pelican 1560-Carry on?

12 February 2008 - 07:30 AM

Is it possible to use the Pelican 1560 as a carry on? I am trying to decide between the 1510 which is a little small for my needs but can work, or the 1560 which should fit all my stuff better but am not sure if it can be a carry on which is what I want. Thanks!

How to adapt an ikelite focus ring for Tokina 10-17

06 February 2008 - 08:34 AM

Hello everyone,
I was wondering if anyone had an idea of how to adapt an ikelite focus ring made to fit with the Standard Zoom Port Body #5510.16 to fit the Tokina 10-17? It seems to be too big and not fit close enough to touch the lens, any thoughts? Thanks everyone for the help!

What ULCS arm with ikelite ds125

17 January 2008 - 10:18 AM

Hello everyone,
I am just getting into underwater photography "seriously" I have purchased an ikelite housing for my canon digital rebel xt with a 8" dome and the tokina 10-17 lens. Obviously I am looking to do more wide angle stuff initially. I like the ultralight control systems but am unsure of what size arm would be best for me. I am planning on getting one ikelite ds125 strobe. What is the best size for wide angle? What does everyone think of the ULCS system? and also I am not entirely sure what exactly I will need for the whole arm set up to connect it to my housing and the strobe can anyone point me in the right direction? Thanks for the help!
