Put some weights in your housing and soak it in distilled water for a week. If that doesn't solve the problem then you need to send it into ikelite for service.  in regards to the zoom gear you probably need to experiment and analyze the situation once you have the other problems resolved. I am positive that ikelite will resolve your problem. ikelite has a forum here: http://www.scubaboar...forums/ikelite/

Your business looks really interesting, Bill. I'll send you an email with some more details about this issue and some other things I'm trying to figure out for our system.


I'm not using the strobe connectors. I'm in Fairbanks, Alaska.


What I think would work best for you is to take the battery adapter and connect it to the ikelite strobe port. Then use a ikelite strobe extension cord (http://www.ikelite.c...nsion-cord.html) to get out of the water to the Nikon ac adapter with a ikelite strobe connection on it. This would give you proven watertight connections without modifying the housing. It would also allow you to dissemble the unit if needed without un-soldering things.

I don't think you will find a lot of information on this on the net. Are you using the strobe connectors? I can modify things for you if you want and we can discuss it off line. I am in Cincinnati Ohio where are you?

The part you are looking for is in the pictures below. I made a prototype to use the modular port system on the housing. You have to unscrew the current port to put this one in then you can use the modular port system. The big problem is you do not have zoom or focus controls. 


Although it could be done I don't see the reason to make the standard ikelite port system work on this housing.
