Going from S100 to M43, signifigant upgrade?

07 April 2014 - 03:23 PM

Hey all,


Over the last year, I've gone from a massive ikelite DSLR rig (that i loved, but did not love packing) to a much more compact S100/fisheye setup.  I love how compact the new setup is, and being able to switch from macro to WA with relative ease.  But I am missing the sharpness of my DLSR!


I refuse to go back to a DSLR rig because of the size, but would a micro four thirds set-up such as an EPL2 or EPL3 be worth the upgrade?


My ex had an EPM1 and I didn't really find the images all that impressive.




I'd likely get a M43 setup, precision dome and panasonic 8mm fisheye. I am currently running one YSD1 strobe with the S100 and loving it, might need a second with the pana 8mm fisheye though.

After a change of plans I am back home in Canada and looking to sell my entire underwater camera rig.  All components are in like new condition and the housing will be shipped to Ikelite for maintenance before being sent to the buyer (I will pay the ikelite maintenance bill).  


Included with sale:


-Ikelite T4i/650d housing

-Ikelite 8" dome port (with port body for Sigma 10-20mm)

-Two Ikelite DS160 substrobes with smart charger

-Two Ikelite dual sync cables (one used and one brand new)

-Two Ikelite 9" arms

-Two Ikelite 6" arms

-Six Ikelite ball clamps

-Canon T4i body (shutter count around 5000)

-Sigma 10-20mm f/4-5.6 wide angle lens


I will include lot's of extras such as an ikelite o-ring kit, micro mesh acrylic dome repair kit, custom strobe diffusers, etc.  If I get my full asking price I would also be willing to throw in a Tamron 17-50mm f2.8 lens.


I have used this setup on about 25 dives and everything works perfectly.  The Sigma 10-20mm works great behind the 8" dome and yields sharp corners with minimal vignetting.  I have even used the Tamron 17-50mm behind the 8" dome with pretty good results (not a true macro lens but fun to play around with).  This camera features auto-focus in video and this function works quite well underwater.

Asking price for the full setup $3700 USD


Asking price for the full setup (no body or lenses) $2800 USD


Asking price for strobes/arms/sync cables $1400 USD


Asking price for housing and dome port only $1500 USD

Hey all,


Selling my DS160 strobes.  This is a full set up and even includes an extra brand new dual sync cord.  I am selling them because I have gotten into shooting just video.  Located in Bali but I can ship anywhere in the world, you pay shipping and duty.  Or I can possibly meet in South East Asia (Indonesia, Philippines, Thailand, etc)



Included with sale:


(2) DS160 Strobes with batteries (used but in perfect working condition)

(1) Smart charger

(2) Dual Sync cables (one used and one brand new)

(2) SA-100 arm kits (two ball clamps, 6" arms, and handle extensions)

(2) 9" Ikelite arms

(2) Extra ball clamps


I think that's everything.  Basically it's everything you need to add some awesome lighting to your Ikelite DSLR rig.  This setup would retail for close to $2500. 


I will sell for $1400 USD.  I would consider full or partial trade for a good set of video lights.
