Ikelite DS 161

13 December 2012 - 08:51 PM


I just bought a used Ikelite setup for a Canon 7D and 2 Ike DS161 strobes were included with that.
Since I never owned one of these strobes or an underwater housing I had the following question:
When I turn the strobe on it makes a little sound for about 4 seconds. It almost sounds like a start up sound but I was just wondering if that is normal or I should sent it to Ikelite for diagnostics.

Many thanks

Worth buying this setup? Ikelite Canon 7D

07 December 2012 - 06:21 PM

Hello Guys,

I am not too sure whether I am posting in the correct section of the forum so please feel free to correct me or move my post.
I am looking for a used underwater setup and believe it or not I do not have an SLR as of right now at all, so it is a bit easier for me to look at the used classifieds.
A gentleman close to me is selling a setup and I feel like it is well priced for what it is but I wanted to hear some feedback from you guys.
Here it is:
  • Ikelite underwater camera housing to fit Canon EOS 7D DSLR
  • Port
  • Port extension
  • Dome
  • Two Ikelite DS161 Strobes
  • Strobe attachment arms
  • Sync cable
  • All necessary accessories, spare parts, and user manual.

When I asked him which dome it was he said he had the Tamron 17-50mm lens in there and he would find out which one it is exactly.
Do you feel like this is a good setup for $2000.00?
The seller seems to be genuine and answered all my questions and offered for me to try out the strobes etc.
All feedback is much appreciated.

Many thanks :)

What lens???

22 June 2012 - 08:15 PM

I own a Canon T3i and I am just saving up to buy a housing for it. Most likely it will be Ikelite or Sea&Sea.
I am looking for a lens primarily for underwater video and wide angle since I will be getting the Canon 60mm for macro.
Price definitely makes a difference so if you could give me some insight on some lenses in the lower price range it would be much appreciated.
Any input is helpful.
Thank you very much in advance,

Wanted Canon T3I Housing Ikelite or Sea&Sea

I am very new to this forum so excuse me if I am not posting in the right section.

I live in Toronto, Canada and I am looking to buy a housing for my Canon T3i. I would prefer it to be Ikelite or Sea&Sea since those are in my price range.

Please let me know if you have anything available, I would obviously prefer to see it in person before I buy it but that is unlikely to happen since most users seem to be from the US but I will give it a shot anyways.

In case you are not able to message me here, my email address is : sergejvishovski153@msn.com

Many thanks and best regards,
