Ikelite lens ports

27 August 2014 - 07:00 PM

I know the question of glass vs acrylic has been asked a few thousand times but all of the searches seem to apply only to dome ports.  Does this also apply to the flat ports since the area is much smaller and the cost is considerable cheaper?  What do you use (glass or acrylic) and why?  Ikelite points out weight on their port finder website but I can't imagine there would be much difference in the flat ports but I could be wrong.

Airlock/Vacuum system

06 July 2014 - 01:04 PM

Is anyone using an airlock/vacuum system on their Ikelite housing?  If so, what are your thoughts?  I have searched the Ikelite website and don't see where they offer one, so I guess it would have to be an aftermarket purchase and install.  From what I have read, it sounds like a pretty sensible item to have.  I found that it is standard on the Nauticam housing (for my camera) but it is over double the price of the Ikelite housing.  I am wavering between the Ikelite and the Nauticam housings.  I thought maybe installing the airlock/vacuum system on the Ikelite as a possibility too. 

WTB - 1" ULCS buoyancy arms

28 February 2014 - 12:45 PM

I am looking for the old style (1” diameter) ULCS buoyancy arms in 8” – 12” lengths.  All I can seem to find is the new style which is the 2” diameter.
