FS: 2 x Ikelite DS 161s

11 December 2017 - 04:07 PM

I have two used Ikelite DS161 Strobes/Video lights up for sale. 
I purchased both of them used last spring 2017 from Ebay.
I used them both less than 10 times (probably more like 4 times) and realized that they are just too unwieldy for instream photography.
I recently bought a Retra strobe and I think that the size is a bit more what I am looking for. So I am now trying to offload these two Ikelites.
One of the strobes has some cosmetic wear from the previous owner (see pics).
The other strobe is in great shape.
Both strobes are fully functional and operate well. 
Both have battery packs, sync port covers (metals screw caps) and both have the 1" ball adapters. However, I only have one diffuser and one charger.
Looking for $1400 for the pair - shipping and PayPal fees included. PayPal or local pickup in Seattle, WA.

Thanks for looking! 

6-inch Ikelite Dome for A7RII and 28mm w/ FE?

28 June 2017 - 05:49 PM

I do a lot of in-stream photography and I would like to use a compact 6" dome on my Ikelite housing rather than the giant 8" dome. This is for an A7RII and primarily a 28mm F/2 with fisheye converter. 

I was wondering if anyone has experience with this setup or if someone knows if it's possible or not.


Ikelite's port chart makes no reference to the 6-inch dome other than that the 15mm Sigma causes vignetting. I tried to contact Ikelite with no success.


I also got in touch with Backscatter.com but they didn't seem to have any idea either.


Thanks. Thought I'd check in with folks here before I fork money over to try it out.
