Hi Yuki,

 

I am interested in the 7D equipment.

 

I am concerned about the scratch to the dome port.

Can you post some images of this scratch please.

The fact that it shows up on video is not good for me.

It also means that it will

show up at some point on still images, probably

with smaller apertures and consequent greater depth

of field. For me the scratch may render the dome useless I am

afraid, I do shoot video.

I would like to see also the "whiting" on the body.

This sounds like corrosion and I would like to see the

extent of it. Nauticam agent that I deal with says it is not normal.

 

I already have a 7d and a Tokina lens. Will you sell

the rest.

 

Looking forward to hearing from you,

Neptune.


In Topic: Housing buttons that stick

14 August 2012 - 09:38 AM

Hi, I have been diving Ikelite housings now for about 4 years in Ireland, cold sea water, often low visibility (<5 feet), but up to 100 feet too, and for the first time am encountering sticky buttons which cost me a couple of dives.
Just spoke to the folks in Ikelite who will ship a maintenance kit for $20 with 15 sets of springs, o-rings, grease and c-clips as well as the tool to remove the old c-clips (which should be discarded) and fit the new ones. It is my responsibility to clean the shafts properly, which I can do because I have access to an ultrasonic cleaning bath.
I have been bringing a pliers with me on dives, and have used them once to pull up a sticky button, but I do not like to do this, I would rather solve the problem. Looking forward to receiving it.
