it looks higher then the V4. While the V5 look like the LED is better seen from above, I wonder how well you see it from the side. I'll stick to the V4 :-). Which I wont hesitate to recommend...

In Topic: Real life user experience with XIT404 knobs

Thanks, I would be interested to hear. For the most part, I think the shutter itself and * button triggers are allright on my Ikelite housing, could use slightly longer stems. When the housing is loaded properly, the shutter speed and aperture buttons will work allright, but I always have to check. And since the knobs are high and relatively thin, its a thumb and finger job, not just one finger.

In Topic: Wetpixel forums trashed in latest Firefox

As I also use Firefox and have no problems, as has trimix , I think it is not a general wetpixel or Firefox fault but limited to your installation. can you just not trash the temporary files, the cache or whatever?

In Topic: lens reflecting in dome port

Ikelite even sells anti reflection rings




I just got a permanent marker and marked the white letters on the rim.


Trouble I have is mostly not the lettering on the lens, but the ikelite zoom ring.

In Topic: Help. 2 x DS51 or 1 x DS160?

24 January 2018 - 10:06 AM

Ikelite ds 51s are great macro strobes. Same cool light temperature as the inons. The larger Ikelite's have a warmer light that will help in blue water and feature a circular tube. They are large indeed.

I have made 3D print knob extensions for both ds51 and ds125/160/161.
