  1. I have used neoprene covers on my Inon for years. They go on before the strobes get put into a carry crate I use. I pop them off into the wash tank before diving. I have found that Ikelite has many round covers, not necessarily for your specific strobe which will work quite fine. Also, after washing and drying, leave them on the strobes at home
  2. I bought thte EM-10 Mark II and am very happy with it
  3. Hi I have shot cameras in Olympus and Ikelite housings for a LONG time. My overall conclusion is that the Olympus OEM housing are more ergonomic especially for p&s cameras. The have an O-ring which can be tricky to keep clean and install properly. They have external springs in the pushbuttons. None of which are showstoppers. Accessories for Olympus are usually over priced. While the Ikelite housing are bigger and more rugged, very don't handle as well. The range of needed accessories is greater for Ikelite. As said elsewhere, there are some kits being offered which are quite nice. Do a comparion of the two setups. Buying point is which strobe (INON S2000 are small and lower priced if used). Ikelite D51 series are good but need a digital adapter). I am selling the S2000 if you are interested. A wet adaptor lens is good to have.
  4. I have a INON S2000 Type II for sale. Will include an INON fiber optic sync cord. I will need to know you location to estimate postage?
  5. BTW I just saw the RX100 Mark III in Classified offered by Kcalder223
  6. I have several Maha chargers and no problems. That we cant find you line is an old put off. Go to the dealer you know and tell him if he wants to keep you as a customer, then he should DO something
  7. sbonev, yes Panasonics are known for good lenses, but IS there a housing for it and how much does that cost?
  8. If you want to stay with a compact camera, then look the Sony RX-100 older models. I have the Mark II in an Ikelite housing and it works fine. With that housing having a 67mm port, there are several wet lenses which can be added. The Oly PEN systems have come down in price, but UNLESS the camera offers flash TTL, I would steer away. Goto to Cathy Church's website for her comments (she is an Oly fan). Also see what Phil Rudin says. I am selling my complete old Oly PEN E-PL2 rig since I just bought a OMD E-M10 Mark II in a Nauticam housing. Beware the Nauticam prices are higher for all components, the systems are more complicated and they weight! P.S. my original plan was to buy the Oly XZ-2 and get a housing for it. Bought the camera can NOT find a housing anywhere~
  9. I am master diver and photographer, trying to find a buddy who wants to go to Roatan between now and mid-July? I am interested in photo instruction but not locked in to that. I will be coming from Jacksonville FL
  10. Weefine is not the type of u/w light you need for super wide angle. IF you want a strobe, need one with a wide beam angle and which can be moved around on arms. IF you want a continous light for like video, you need many lumens and a diffuser. Yes I have three Inon D2000s and one is for sale. Good strobes

    WTB Inon S2000

    I have an Inon D2000 Mark 3. In good condition, with sync cord. I have a ball mount on it now, but can change that. Will also include 4 Ennelop AA. No diffuser. Other parts like arm and handle optional and negotiable. Asking $300 including USPS in states and Payment by PayPal.
  12. Housing looks pretty salty, are there any scratches on the glass port or back screen?
  13. I would use a flat AL tray with holes in each end to mount which ever arm system you choose. I don't think the articulated knuckle arms can be locked in tight? ULCS and Ikelite have many different parts to put together. The little extra weight a metal tray would add, also balances the rig so its upright.
  14. I have Pany 8mm and Oly 9-18 zoom. I have done a lot of wreck diving mostly with the old Nikkor 16mm FE. A fisheye lens can give you more dramatic photos, but you have to have plenty of light when you get off the wreck or away from structures. The Oly FE zoom lets you get closer for some shots like inside and still shoot wide outside. I shot the old Nikon F2 with a big Ike strobe. I have be using Inon D2000s for several years now and one will probably cover 80% of the wide shots and all of the inside shots. I carry a second attached but don't use it all the time. IF you are only going to buy one lens I would say the Oly 9-18 zoom. Then work you port selection to also cover FE fixed in future. I had to give up my Zen glass ports for Nauticam plastic to cover the lenses I have. They will go up for sale next week. BTW I just started shooting the Oly 12-50 "electric" zoom which I have a port for but not the gear ring.
