FS: Ikelite TTL Adapter for Nikon # 4302

02 March 2015 - 05:45 PM

Selling the last of my Ikelite strobe gear. This is used to obtain TTL using Ikelite strobes with non-Ikelite housings. It has both TTL and Manual settings so you can go either way. IT IS ONLY FOR NIKON CAMERAS (i-TTL). I used it with it with an Aquatica housing. The housing end goes into a 5 pin Nikonos bulkhead and the other end mates to a Ikelite sync cord. As you can see from the pics, both connections are in good shape.


I used it for about a year (60-70 dives), then went to a straight manual config. eliminating the adapter.


It is listed on Backscatter for $350.00. I'm asking $240.00/BO. Shipping to the lower 48 included.


Payment via PP.

FS: Ikelite DS-51 strobes (2X)

19 February 2015 - 06:23 AM

I am selling a pair of Ikelite DS-51s that have been lightly used. I purchased them new, used for 2 dive trips, about 30 dives. Then I found a great deal on DS-125s which became my primary strobes. Included are diffusors and five spare battery compartment covers. On these strobes, the battery compartment o-ring is integral with the cover, so you must replace the cover to replace the o-ring. At least that's what Ikelite says to do.


These strobes are light weight, great for travel and for ease in use UW. Works in TTL or manual modes.


Looking for $275.00 each/OBO. I will ship to the lower 48 at no additional cost.


PP only.


More pics available on request.



Diving Blue Heron Bridge in October; Advice???

08 September 2014 - 12:11 PM

I'm going to be around the BHB in early October. The 2nd, 3rd and possibly the 4th. I've read many sites, posts and blogs and understand the layout, tide considerations, etc. High tides are about 3:30pm, 4:30pm & 5:30 pm on those days. I was planning to do a reef dive in the morning, but found out that the day boats don't leave until 10 am on weekdays which makes it real tight, esp. on the 2nd.


I've done a good bit of muck diving, Lembeh, Raja Ampat, Komodo, etc., but was considering hiring a guide to act as a critter finder at least for the first dive on the 2nd. Opinions on value of doing that??


Any other info would be appreciated.
