In Topic: Sea and Sea MDX 40 - Problem with Quick control dial

22 May 2008 - 09:37 PM

One other thing to try, a couple of times the cone gear for the dial right behind the shutter did not line up for me. If it gets stuck tooth to tooth (technical term) it will be enough for the dial to be intermittent. Just wiggle it and check that it lines up when you insert the camera. Good Luck,


Hi Steve,

Exactly what happened, all the cone gears and dials didn't line up; so just as you said, I just wiggled it a bit and now everything is fine !

Thanks for that,


In Topic: Monitor Calibration - What about laptop screen ?

Second the recommendation about using Spyder to calibrate both lap top and notebook monitors. Easy to use, and the before and after differences are pretty dramatic.

Cheers for that !
I'm already onto Google to find that.


In Topic: Connect G9 to YS-110

Hi there !

You already had some reply concerning the connection of your YS-110, so the only thing I can add is regarding the choice of your housing.

I've been using - as a beginner - for a few months a G7 with Canon housing and one single YS-110.

The only drawback of the Canon was the impossibility to use any different lens whereas the Ikleite allow you to use a limited choice of other lenses.

Despite this, I went for the Canon because cheaper but also because I knew that I quickly would want to go DSLR and I've was told at the time that the Ikelite wouldn't allow me to do whatever I wanted to do.
Therefore, I went for the cheaper option to start with and I must say that I had some good time and some good shots with that set up.

So in the end, all I would say to you is look ahead and think what you want to do in the future.
Do you intend to go for DSLR sooner or later ?
What kind of photography are you into ?
Choice of lenses with Ikelite, is it enough for what you want to do ?

Hum, hope it helps
