wanted - subal standard viewfinder

15 July 2012 - 04:38 PM

hi, does anyone have a standard subal viewfinder for sale? Just the small one that comes with a housing if you don't take the gs180 upgrade at time of purchase

I have a gs180 but I share it between 2 housings, I would just prefer both housings to have their own viewfinder

If you can help please send me a message,
thanks

seacam canon 580ex housing, s6 ttl cable, subtronic arm for sale

26 April 2012 - 05:03 PM

hi guys

I am changing my kit so I have this rare seacam flash housing for sale with arm and s6 to s6 sync lead. The housing is designed for the canon 580ex flash but I have also used it with a yongnuo yn565ex flash too, available at approx 100 new the yongnuo flash is a consideration for anyone on a budget looking for digital ttl underwater.
This system gives full e-ttl with a canon compatible housing with the s6 bulkhead. Also the flash powerzooms when you zoom the lens which is a nice feature underwater, especially for midrange zoom and macro lenses.
There is a pilot light built in to the flash housing, there is a charger for this. The flash can be turned off by an electronic switch on the outside of the housing, this is the only flash control. The subtronic arm is all aluminium and has 2 pivot points. It is not very long at 14" but I can supply some custom made pieces to swap segments and give extending options.
I paid 1000 for the housing, 450 for the s6 cable and the arm so that's a 1450 new value, selling here under half price at 700. There is no flash included with this sale, I have sold my 580ex and I am keeping the Yongnuo as a cheap land back up. Offered with free shipping in UK, worldwide shipping at cost

Pictures available, please private message me if interested, thanks

sea and sea dome port help please, canon 17-40mm

20 April 2012 - 03:46 PM

hi everyone

I am pretty well versed with dome port use through many different housings over the years but I'm looking at the sea and sea chart for the canon 17-40mm in a 5dmk2 housing I am questioning their information/theory

my concern is they recommend using the fisheye dome port (which I have) but without an extension ring which just confuses me for such a big lens. If used without an extension the lens will be very close and only using a small area of the port and my estimate is a +4 dioptre will be needed but there is no mention of any dioptre from Sea & Sea. Without running tests myself I would have said a 40mm extension and perhaps a +1 or +2 dioptre. This would be most similar to my subal set up where in that set I use the fe dome port and 40mm extension and a +2. I mentioned a +1 as the sea and sea fisheye port is bigger than the subal fe port

Can anyone shed any light on this as obviously I want the best optical combination when using this housing? I'm really sorry if this has been brought up before, I couldn't find anything though

Thanks in advance....
