In Topic: Attaching a Subsee +10, 67 mm to a flat dslr flat port without using the subs...

Here is another alternative if those don't work out.  I got one of these for my Sea & Sea flat port and it works decently.  I did have to remove the rubber boot that Sea & Sea puts over the front corner in order to use it.  I don't think Ikelite has a boot.

In Topic: corrosion on Solo lights

Second the vinegar and swab.  Contact cleaner also works.  I spray it on a swab first.  After you clean it, wipe it with dielectric grease and reapply regularly.  It will charge fine through the dielectric grease and won't recorrode.  For some reason, only one terminal corrodes on mine.

In Topic: New lens: macro or fisheye?

Wide angle is more challenging, but the 10-17 focuses so close that with a small dome you can shoot WA macro.  Not really macro because even on top of the subject, it looks small (and I mean touching the dome), but a close-up of a small to medium subject with a wide background.  The challenge is strobe placement and lighting both the subject and the background.

In this shot, the squids were probably an inch from the port.




In this crop, they may have been touching it.


In Topic: Sea & Sea MDX-D600 - problems

18 February 2014 - 03:18 PM

On the older housings (one dial) the manual specified to push and turn.  Since the D600 has a second dial, I doubt that will work.  When I was having this issue with my D300, it was suggested I put a piece of tape on the wheel that contacts the sub command dial. 

I did have the same problem as the previous post, in that if the camera is installed with the power off and the control lever in the on position, it won't seat correctly and leaves a gap even after switching it on and off.  The camera must be removed and reseated.  I also managed to bend the camera shoe sheet metal slightly by leaving it on my camera in the camera bag.  Bending it back to correct alignment (you can also loosen the bottom screw a  bit) helped my wheel alignment issue as well as my problem with the CSM focus mode selection.
