In Topic: Ikelite Canon 100D / Rebel SL1 : review ?

23 March 2017 - 06:19 PM

It was mentioned earlier that I was working on a prototype dome for this housing and after extensive field testing I will report that I have a few of these in stock. I have attached pictures and hope to update the web site soon. Please PM me if you are interested.

 

Both are tuned for the tokina 10-17 lens and do not vignette but also are not capable of zooming. The difference is one is a 5" and the other is a 3.8" dome. Please see the attached pictures. These attache the same way the ikelite dome attaches.They come with a dust cover, shade and neoprene cover.

The bottom picture does not have a o-ring on it but I am sure that when you use it it does.  There is a product called tef-gel that I highly recommend for these type of issues when you have dissimilar metals , salt water and electrolysis.

Ultra Tef-Gel is a fastener lubricant used to prevent corrosion and seizing. Developed using aerospace industry experience, properly applied Tef Gel eliminates the blistering, corrosion, rust, galling, and seizing of hardware commonly experienced in corrosive environments and with dissimilar metals.
It can be used in all weather conditions. The amazing composition is derived from a specially formulated PTFE paste. Syringe tube design for easy application. Whether it swivels, slips or slides, Tef-Gel will protect and ensure the painless future removal of assembled hardware.

The nikonus connector is known for these problems. The o-ring should have been above the threads not after the threads.

The strobes are not Fiber Optic strobes. They are cable connected only.

I agree if it is both at the same time it is probably in the housing wiring somewhere. Check the position of the hot-shoe connector, is it seated all the way? You may have a week spring allowing a button to be pushed also.
