#388931 Best Vacuum System for DSLR Housing

Posted by pbalves on 01 November 2017 - 03:05 AM

Leak Sentinel / Mico is the way to go!
I bought 2 systems from him.

One complete for a friends Ikelite housing (version 4). It works fine.

Another bought was a standalone valve and pump for my Aquatica housing. The Aquatica housing had the surveyor already, that is able to measure the change in the pressure, so I just needed to add a valve. I do not like the valves from Aquatica, backscater, ikelite, nauticam as all of them are on L shape or too bulky and it seams to me that it is more probable to get things stacked there.

Besides that, it is less expensive!

The surveyor from Aquatica is possible to be bought stand alone. It has the Benedict that also has a moisture alarm, signaling by light and by sound. The draw back is that you need to open the housing to activate the survival and then proceed with the test.

The leak sentinel allows you to activate it without opening the housing, and it allows you to make the test in the day before and switch off the sensor till the few moments before the dive, allowing some saving in the battery.

And Miso is very solicitous.

The triggerfish has 2 versions: one with internal battery and another without internal battery.

The first is the newer version and allows to trigger sea and sea strobes. Inon strobes can be triggered by both versions.
