For Sale: 2x Ikelite DS125 strobe kit

29 November 2011 - 12:24 AM

Having taken delivery of a new set of YS110a, I have reluctantly decided to downsize my collection of gear :-(

I have 2x Ikelite DS 125 strobes, together with 3x NiMh battery packs and 1x smart charger. Asking price USD800 or best offer.

Also available 2x Ikelite-Nikonos sync cords. Asking price USD120 or best offer.

I will be in the UK mid-Dec if any European/US buyers would like to minimise shipping/duty costs, and in Australia early Jan for those antipodeans interested in buying.

Please PM me or e-mail sjenkins@unifi.my

Steve

(nb I have positive feedback from my last sale, in the sellers section - circa 2009)

TTL fibre optic cables for Nexus D300 and YS110 alpha ?

28 November 2011 - 11:55 PM

Hi all,

Have recently acquired a new set of YS110a strobes and although I have the sync cables for my Nexus D300 housing, I want to test their TTL capability by using fibre optic cables and the internal pop-up flash of the D300.

I am assuming (maybe incorrectly) that the L-connector from Sea and Sea will be compatible twith the fibre optic connector on the Nexus bulkhead.

Anyone using the Nexus D300 with YS110a via fibre optic care to point me in the right direction? :-)

Thanks
Steve

For Sale: Inon 45 deg viewfinder for Hugyfot

28 November 2011 - 11:47 PM

I bought this Inon 45 degree viewfinder recently here on Wetpixel and the seller informed it it would fit my Nexus D300 housing. It didn't. I then discovered it was previously fitted to a Hugyfot housing, hence I am offering it back for sale.

If interested please message me with your best offer. Guide price 350 Euros. Pics available. Serial number D291954

Thanks
Steve

Viewfinders - Advice Please

07 September 2011 - 08:07 PM

Hi all,

I've been shooting macro for several years and recently moved towards supermacro thanks to the addition of Subsee +5 and +10 D to my expanding gear list. I had a brief look through a test rig in a store, which incorporated an Inon 45 degree viewfinder and was pretty impressed with the image (compared to the view I have through my Nexus pick up lens/Nikon D300 viewfinder).

So, questions for those of you who have tried and used/rejected the viewfinder route:

1. What are the primary advantages/benefits of using the viewfinder in your actual experience ?
2. Anyone tried both straight and 45 degree viewfinders ? Is it just a matter of preference or do shooting styles/ergonomics etc come into play. I mean, how many of us regularly have to twist, contort or invert ourselves to get a decent shot, with an uncluttered background of a critter that is less than co-operative ???

Appreciate your thoughts,
Thanks
Steve
