Ikelite fiber optic use from strobe connector?

11 August 2014 - 05:33 PM

Just thinking out loud here but was just wondering if there would be a way to somehow make a converter that screws into the Ikelite strobe connector and converts the electric signal to fire an LED instead (and then attach fiber optic cables to trigger the strobes)? I shoot in manual mode anyways with 2 YS-110a's so just trying to think of ways to lessen the risk of flooding the strobes. 

 

Anyone ever try anything like this?


Bad idea to go to Galapagos this summer? (El Nino)

07 August 2014 - 07:51 AM

Was thinking about spending a few weeks in the Galapagos this summer (June/July most likely) but unfortunately it seems like they are predicting an El Nino.  Has anyone been to Galapagos in El Nino conditions and would advise against it?  Would it still be worth it to go on the off chance El Nino doesn't happen? I didn't know how much it would affect wildlife viewing there next summer.  Thanks for the help

Looking to buy a used Ikelite housing for a Nikon D7000. I already have ports and strobes just looking for the housing. Thanks!

FS: 2 used (like new) Sea & Sea Fiber Optic Sync Cables L-Type

23 July 2014 - 07:03 PM

Selling TWO used Sea & Sea Fiber Optic L-Type cables.  Been on less than 15 dives.  Their coils are still perfect (no stretches) if anyone wants pics let me know but they look just like they came out of the box. 

 

Retail at Reef Photo: $160+tax for the pair, selling both of them for $130 free shipping


Olympus E-PL1 camera and housing with custom GoPro Port Mount

23 July 2014 - 11:03 AM

Seen less than 30 dives, in very good condition.  The Inon wet lens works great with this camera, I have gotten some awesome macro shots with this combination without having to buy a dedicated macro lens and port!  I loved this camera for its compact size but I recently decided to house my D7000 and need the money to upgrade.  

Included:

Olympus PEN E-PL1 micro 4/3rds camera
14-42mm Lens
Zoom gear for 14-42mm lens (works with 9-18mm lens as well) Oly PPZR-EP01
Olympus Housing
Nauticam duel handle tray
Nauticam 1in ball mounts on each handle
Custom mounted GoPro Port mount (can be taken off if not needed, but an awesome way to capture video while you shoot)
Torch (flashlight) hotshoe mount
Custom carrying handle using glow in the dark rope

Inon Close up lens UCL-165-M67
with Olympus PMLA-EP01 threaded port mount 


*GoPro and torch not included*

Will accept reasonable offers (and trades if you happen to have an Ikelite D7000 housing )
