D200 LCD cover

20 August 2007 - 02:46 AM

I have a question for the users of the Sea&Sea DX-D200 housing. Do you take off the LCD monitor cover before mounting the camera in the housing? This is not mentioned in the user's guide and I'd prefer not to take it off unless I really have to. Thanks very much.

DX-D200 shutter speeds

10 July 2007 - 12:35 AM

Hi all,

I've recently purchased a Sea&Sea DX-D200 housing and last weekend I had the chance to test it with a couple of strobes I have (Ikelite Substrobe 200 and Sea&Sea YS-60N). Both strobes fired ok, but after a while I noticed that I could bump up the shutter speed way past the flash sync speed of 1/250. Of course, I got partially blacked out photos as expected. What I'd like to know is if this is normal behavior for this housing. It seems that since not all the pins are connected, the camera doesn't "know" that a flash is connected, so it doesn't limit shutter speed but fires the flash anyway. I don't get the "flash ready" indicator in the viewfinder either. I did a search and found out that someone noticed the same thing with an Ikelite housing. Can Sea&Sea housing owners shed a light on this? Is this normal or do I have a faulty housing? Thanks very much...

Sea&Sea port for the Nikon 12-24mm

18 June 2007 - 02:32 AM

Hi all,

I've been using an Oly C-5050Z + PT-015 + DS-125 combo for quite a long time and now I'm considering housing my D200. I have the Nikon 12-24mm lens which I'd like to use underwater but I'm confused with the different port options for this lens. If somebody here is using this lens in a Sea&Sea housing, what would be your port recommendation? Will I need to use a dipoter with this lens if I choose one of the dome ports? Thanks very much.
