In Topic: D7000 Ikelite, buttons on camera not working while at depth

Today, 03:18 PM

Hi Guys,

 

I have had several Ikelite housing and have always been happy with them, but had one that wouldn't funcition in depths beyond 35m. I could press the shutter release, but couldn't change any camera settings. This happened each time I went to depth with this housing, and as soon as I got above 35m everything worked fine. I have used my other Ikelite housings down to 50m without an issue, every button and dial worked perfectly. I contacted Ikelite and they told me that they had never heard of this before, but it now sounds like I am not the only one to experience this issue.

 

Cheers,

 

Nigel

I would bet that either you have a weak spring or short travel from the button to the camera on one of the controls. you should look at the buttons at 30m  and 40m to determine what one is getting partially pushed.

It could cause a variety of problems as the lens would not be centered in the dome.
