Are you using an Ikelite housing with built in TTL circuitry?   Or another brand of housing?

I just edited and reposted the photos, I brought the shadows way up in Lightroom.


In my second and third picture you can now see that there is a curved slot in the lever that you move with your finger.

This lever pivots on the screw toward the front (to the left in my first picture.)


The second lever, the one that presses the shutter lever on the housing, does not pivot down from this assembly; it rotates around the second screw (the one closest to the housing).

I like it also.


I do not think these triggers are available separately, but I will ask.

If I was you....


Go with an older camera


I agree 100% in your case.  You seem to be interested in UW photography long-term, so look at what you would be spending over the next 10 or 20 years.  The "ínitial expense" of lenses and ports might seem like a lot, but the lens and port you buy today will work with the camera you buy in 10 years.


There is no one camera does it all" underwater.  So you might be looking at a compact, but then you'll be buying wetmate lenses for wide and macro; and they might not work with your next compact camera.  Going with an interchangeable lens camera will mean you can use your stuff in the future.


Getting an older camera will be fine for a beginner / intermediate.   You are going to do a lot of diving before you are a better photographer than the equipment you have.   Buying an older camera / housing will leave you more for the lens & port, and lighting.


Where in the world are you ?  Is there an UW photo club nearby?  If there is, you can find lots of used gear and advice.

Keep in mind that when 'deep' that water pressure is doing much more to hold your port in place than the port locks.


Replacements are very inexpensive.   Ikelite part # 9072.24  You should be able to find these 'local' to you now that you have the part number.
