In Topic: 7D housing Nimar Vs Ikelite

04 August 2012 - 08:05 PM

So now I'm beginning to contemplate saying screw it to the 7D and going for a 5D III :D ! Part of the reason being the new ikelite 5DIII housing is only 5.4 pounds which is perfect and I do like the idea of being able to see into the housing pre-dive. Does anyone here have any experience with the leak sentinel first hand? Also, would drilling the housing for the leak sentinel void the warranty from ikelite?! It sounds like it could! The price would be about the same if I got the 7D and got an aluminum housing so it doesn't look like that would make much sense in the end, and the new AF system and low light quality would be fabulous too ;)

Would the hugyfot be compatible with other ports and strobes with TTL? I called tackle shack and it was 2600 euros without any ports or anything, aside from the hugycheck system of course. The guy quoted me 1700 euros for the fisheye port with a focusing system which to be quite frank is absolutely ridiculous! There already without any lights, TTL connections or arms it's already at 4300 euros and I'm not sure I'm ready to invest that kind of money into a housing just yet. The phone cut out when he was talking about the TTL connections and strobes so I don't have an idea about price or compatibility. Thanks everybody for your help!

I might try over exposing one to two thirds of a stop to get good highlights and then pull out the shadows more in post to get a strong contrast with less noise. Don't shoot monochrome on a DSLR, convert it. Oh, and learn to imagine things in black and white!

Thanks for your input guys! Actually i was looking at the Hugyfot housing for the 7D but can't find a North American dealer which is discouraging, any help there? Does anyone have any experience with this housing as well because I do like the looks of it, but are all the controls there (including the joystick?)

Jak what combo of arm lengths and joints would work best, I'm just looking into all this for the first time now. I'll be shooting in the PNW so I figure the closer the light can get, probably the better.
