Hey guys, thanks for continuing to post, sorry I've not been around for a bit - busy with land photography this winter season...

 

Brett, it's funny you mention that.  Stoo suggested that it might be that exact problem.  I brushed him off thinking it was impossible, because the port itself is black (not letting in any light), and the space between the lens, and the port body is soooo small that I figured it was impossible that was causing the issue.

 

But now here you've confirmed that it may just be that.  Of course, Ikelite will not admit to that!  Their housings are just perfect! 

 

I guess I'll have to try that now too.  Well, I'll be in the pool for a little while, so I'll have lots of time to play around with it, and see if I can't isolate the problem.  Thanks, gents!

UPDATE!! 

 

Well, I've got some news, as it did for Alison, the tape also worked for me.  But it wasn't totally bullet proof.  I was still getting some reflections.  However, with some practice, and research, I think I have solved the issue!!

 

Such a beginner mistake, that it was probably the reason why no one mentioned it here - I feel a little slow!  I had my strobes waaaaaay too far forward, and light from them was getting directly into the dome.  With the adjustment, I think I may now be problem free!

I was actually out today in 'clear' water, and there were no reflections at all out of 50 shots fired off!!! So, maybe between the UV filter, and the silty water, I've got it figured out.

But I've got a few shots pointing into the sun today too.

I'll continue to keep posting as I go along.

Cool, thanks Andy, and Todd. I did try it without the filter, and it made a difference. Still there though. I'm going out again on Sunday, I'll try it with some gaffer tape too.

Thanks again guys!
