  3. Bump. This is still available. Will consider trade for a Nikon full frame body. D800, D700, D810 or d750.
  4. I was convinced that I was going to jump ship on Nikon, went out and bought this housing before I bought the camera body and now have decided to wait for the next generation of sony cameras to fix their lack of battery life. This housing has a couple dips on it, not even dives as it never went past 10' deep. It is in immaculate condition. It is located on Vancouver Island, BC Canada. I will ship if you pay the cost. Asking - $1200 US
  5. This seller 'Ghosted' mid way through a deal... not trustworthy
  6. I have just upgraded my camera body to a D700 and am looking for a new housing at a reasonable price. I have already got Ike strobes etc so am not interested in a package. I'm located in Canada so please consider shipping as well. PM if you have something! Thanks
  7. I sent you a PM, do you still have this?
  8. I’m going through my equipment and am selling the following items. I am meticulous about how I care for my gear, these items have NEVER been flooded and always carefully rinsed and dried before storing. The housing was serviced and upgraded to a 4 lock port system in December. This is a fantastic way to upgrade from a point and shoot to a DSLR without breaking the bank. It creates top quality images, I had one image blown up and printed 5 feet x 3 feet for display at the local airport with stunning results. Housing 6812 for D200 (recently upgraded and serviced) 8” dome 5510.46 with 5510.22 extension and neo cover & zoom clamp Nikon D200 body Nikon 18-55mm VR Take it as a kit for $1400 plus shipping from Vancouver Island New this was over $3500!
  9. I did some u/w portraits for a dance school here in cold, dark Canada last month. I used three SB800s in an umbrella stand on deck set to SU and my on camera DS125 set them off. I liked that I wasn't plugged into any electrical outlets and the backlighting added a nice effect... if you search this forum you'll find more info on how to do it. Here's another site for you http://apnewton.blogspot.com/2011_02_01_archive.html Have fun!

  11. Can someone tell me how to add a sync cord to my set up for firing off camera flash? I do u/w portraits and have 2 ikelite DS125 strobes. What I've been experimenting with: I plugged one strobe into my camera and use it as a key light. I mounted the second one on a light stand and connected it to an off camera slave - the slave points toward my key light and fires the second strobe. It points at 3 SB800 flashes in a second stand on deck that either backlights or sidelights the subject. The flashes are set on SU and will fire {most times}. However, I find this a finicky setup and would love to just connect my pool deck lighting direct to my camera. Does anyone have any suggestions? I've searched high and low and can't find the information I'm looking for. Thanks in advance!
  12. I'm looking for a D300 or D300s housing to purchase from Canada or US. If you have one please email me with details - lisa@seadance"dot"ca Thanks!
  13. I have a Tokina 12-24mm for my Nikon D200. I house it in Ikelite and have the 6" dome. My question is.... Can an over/under shot be accomplished with this lens when a +2 diopter must be used to compensate for the dome? Thanks!
  14. Hi, I'm looking for a mentor. I am a student in the Pro Photo course at North Island college on Vancouver Island and also a PADI Scuba Instructor. I've been dabbling in u/w photography for about 4 years and the opportunity came up for me to return to school so I choose Photography. The course requires me to do a 2 week practicum in my chosen area, where I can learn from someone already in the business (anywhere in the world). I have my own gear, can travel and am very enthusiastic. Is there anyone out there that might be interested in showing me 'the working ropes'?
  15. Hi, I have a DS125 and find that it is easiest to use the spotting light as my primary light source. (It's brighter than many flashlights!) For you it may depend a bit on how long your batteries last as I'm not familiar with the INON strobe. You wouldn't want to burn them out mid dive. I also have a small mask mounted light as back up.
  16. I’m no expert but I’ll try & offer some help. Your Autolevels doesn’t always work because the software looks at the entire picture, calls the lightest pixels white and the darkest pixels black, then it redistributes the ones in between proportionately. Try looking for a Gamma Correction option and adjust your exposure levels yourself using the slider. Be sure to save the file you are working on as something else so you don’t accidentally over-write the original. Also, the snow comes from light bouncing off particles between you and your subject, to avoid it, adjust the angle of your to stobe.

    Silica gel??

    Silica gel can't hurt, just be careful as to where it ends up inside the housing. I had a friend trap it in the seal of her housing and find out that it can't soak up THAT much moisture. Her housing flooded! Oh and use the stuff you find in shoeboxes, it's free!
  18. Hi Ike, The box arrived undamaged (and nicely packed I might add) so I don't think it was during shipping. As for the cost for shipping it was $21.00 to get it there, $18.50 to get it back and $25.00 for broker fees. Have you thought about a Canadian service depot?
