#373072 For new members: How to start a topic in the forum

Posted by Cerianthus on 28 April 2016 - 06:45 AM

Hi Bill, recognise your name from the uwphoto mail list.


you have to reply to a topic (like this one) first. Its to stop bots from subscribing and spamming.


I have bookmarked "new topics since last visit",  or read the forum on tapatalk (mobile or ipad).


you can follow an individual topic (click follow this topic, upper right).  There is a similar button for 'follow this forum'.  you can only follow individual  forums, not a collection of them.

#367635 Definitive Macro for Canon?

Posted by Cerianthus on 28 November 2015 - 12:05 PM

depends, if you dive often in low viz, and also are interested in fish portrait etc, then the 60mm would be better (shorter focus distance, less water and gunk in between). In clear water the 100m gets more interesting... check if the sigma 105 mm has internal focus (otherwise there might be a length difference between infinity and close focus....  (in the end, get both the 60 and 100 mm :-)

The floaters people use are to balance the buoyancy of the whole setup, not to keep arms up, if the arms are too loose just turn m a bit tighter

#360659 Ikelite built-in TTL circuitry + sony A6000 >>> what shutter spee...

Posted by Cerianthus on 30 April 2015 - 04:45 AM

HSS flash works different, it works with multiple small flashes. Unless you get a brand specific flash in a housing, it normally doesn't work with underwater strobes.


an explanation

#360654 Ikelite built-in TTL circuitry + sony A6000 >>> what shutter spee...

Posted by Cerianthus on 30 April 2015 - 03:45 AM

Probably the same as the onboard flash. Max sync speed is depending on the shutter, it is a per camera spec.

#360312 What can WIFI do for the UW Photographer?

Posted by Cerianthus on 20 April 2015 - 09:19 AM

With the canon 70d, I can browse the pictures using the app while the camera is still in its housing. There is a direct wifi connection. For a laptop you need something like virtual router (a free program) to circumvent the requirement for a wifi network. It does consume some battery power and if you want to download Raw it is pretty slow.

#358224 The Ethic of Ikelite and their dealer

Posted by Cerianthus on 23 February 2015 - 06:06 AM

I am not 'commanding' you to stop getting your right, your a free man, I am asking you to stop implying it is the manufactors (Ikelite's) fault while your beef was with the dealer. Nice that all went well in the end.


I am a free man too, and i am not going to read anymore legal mumbojumbo.

#357068 The Ethic of Ikelite and their dealer

Posted by Cerianthus on 27 January 2015 - 12:43 PM

To me this is just a random warranty link and a lot of vague talk about warranty in general Ikelite warrant the product. (Which is always bought through a dealer not direct). The product you bought is not broken, it is just the wrong one. As is established in the thread before, the trouble is between you and the dealer. So stop implying this is ikelites fault.

There is no doubt that Ikelite service goes beyond what is legally needed. they only want to examine items themselves.

Ps I liked Elba! We where there during summer and dived with Werner from Unica diving.

#356547 The Ethic of Ikelite and their dealer

Posted by Cerianthus on 13 January 2015 - 02:13 PM

I use Ikelite, used their service and am pretty happy with it. I bought my strobes and former housing second hand. When I had recurring problems, they send a Dhl courier and replaced bot strobes with new ones. That was overseas so the warranty is word wide. You bought a wrong item from a dealer. You could've checked the fitting of the lens in the shop. The lens is not broken but somehow this is the manufacturers fault. Your deal or lack if it is with the dealer. It's their fault. I don't exactly understand your description but Ikelite don't have to do anything.

#353653 Your thoughts on I-das arms?

Posted by Cerianthus on 23 October 2014 - 11:23 PM

I have them, they work but the job on the anodising is not good. The clamps have now a sharp edge and slowly grind down the ball ends. Could be that I recieved a Monday job but I wouldn't recommend them.

#347276 Ikelite Canon 100D / Rebel SL1 : review ?

Posted by Cerianthus on 05 May 2014 - 04:35 AM

Chile, are you on a normal browser?  use the "more reply options".. You can attach a picture from your computer using the Attach file control under the screen you type in.


Or if the picture exists elswere on the net, or post the picture on flickr, photobucket etc and use the "forum link" option.  Click the "image button" that is in the tools above the text, give the URL for the picture and voila.....


Flickr and Photobucket give you also an option to copy when you get the HTML / BB code straight away. If you copy that link it will automatically embed.



#345258 Vacuum leak detector question

Posted by Cerianthus on 29 March 2014 - 12:51 PM

http://wetpixel.com/...=&fromsearch=1. Post nr 7 explained how to adjust the position of the led.

Miso emailed me
The LED orientation can be adjusted by opening the valve body after the installation and rotating the PCB so that the LED faces the desired direction. This may not be so obvious as I tought it was, so I might add this to the user’s manual. If you still have the link to the thread

For me it wasn't needed.
