#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.

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

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.

#340457 Housings in the swimming Pool - Pressure?

Posted by Cerianthus on 09 December 2013 - 12:58 PM

Dont worry about using it in a pool. The clamps and the port clips put enough pressure on it. Just take care preparing.

Swimming pool water won't kill the port when you use it but afterwards if you don't rinse/ soak

It's better to soak ( which is also shallow) then to use a shower. But you can easily do the first bit in the shower in the pool and give it a soak later.

#339883 recover formatted CF card

Posted by Cerianthus on 24 November 2013 - 02:18 PM

Don't format it again. I used some freeware software when this happened to me. Will look up the name tomorrow

#339730 For those who have vacuum sealed housings, do you still buy insurance?

Posted by Cerianthus on 20 November 2013 - 10:37 PM

You can also drop your camera or loose it into the depths. Vacuum won't help you there, nor will it help if you flood your strobe.

#335906 Swap /trade my Sigma 15mm FE for Tokina 10-17mm

Well, it took a while, but I found someone who would swap!

#312947 Offensive imagery

Posted by Cerianthus on 17 July 2012 - 11:16 AM

I can imagine the reactions; it gives the wrong message..I dont know any of you. I have no objections in collecting fish or reef samples for science, But i have trouble to believe the words in bold as a defense against these comments. The diver to the right may look like it is just above the reef, but the diver on the left (cant see his feet anywhere): there is no way that the sling tank is not bumping anything. As for the stuff on the reef : if coral indeed responds to touch by dying : it had to be placed on either an already dead patch, or it is now.
