Disabling/Bypass Ikelite TTL Controller on housing?

26 February 2015 - 02:06 AM

Relatively time critical question...
I'm currently in Lembeh for a few days with the camera but the TTL controller on my housing is playing up, buttons electrically (not physically) stuck causing mode and power changes i cant override with the strobe (DS161s) dial themselves.  The last time it was stuck on the default TTL mode and i couldn't hold both buttons in to turn to manual.
I never ever use TTL so this was a pain and causing very inconsistent shots.
So, can anyone tell me what pins to mask on the hot shoe OR as a last plan, what wire to cut so the thing just fires bypassing the controller?  This should then allow me to use the dial on the strobe to adjust power.

Kuala Lumpur U/W photo gear shopping?

Ive got 1 possibly 2 days in KL before returning to Indonesia in a few weeks.  Im specifically looking for either a Canon S110 or S120 with the Canon U/W housing.  I know Lowyat is likely my best place for the camera but am i likely to get the housing there as well?

Failing that, can someone recommend me somewhere in the area i can get to in order to buy one.  Ideally i'll be there 1 day, 2 at most.


Also, im looking to see if someone sells the Ikelite 67mm wide angle lens for their S100 housing somewhere in that area for a friend if possible.
