  1. I have a Ikelite Underwater Housing (6870.50) for a Canon 40D/50D, a Canon 50D body, a wide angle port (5503.5) and a macro port (5510.28). The housing has approximately 150 dives. All items are in very good condition. Also included are the gaskets for the ports/body, macro lens tool, grease and a zoom sleeves/clamp. In addition there is the camera instructions book, one battery and one battery charge. Good starter system for someone who wants to shoot a DSRL underwater but does not want to break the bank. Add a lens and this system is ready to get wet. I have taken numerous outstanding photographs using this rig. I hurt my hips and can no longer dive. This rig served me faithfully for many years. ebay item # 282591185387 282591185387
  2. I am selling an Ikelite underwater housing for a Canon40D/50D camera and a Canon 40D body. This would make an excellent inexpensive starter kit for someone who thought he would like to shoot underwater photography with a DSLR. Bay item number: 131995150720 Housing and camera are in very good shape. Please contact me via e-bay if you have any questions.
  3. I use a hot glue gun and it works great. Warning, once glued it does not come apart easy.
  4. This item is no longer for sale.
  5. I have for sale a YS-110 alpha. I am asking $500 but make me an offer. The strobe is in very good condition. It has been underwater about a dozen times. I am moving from a Sea and Sea DX-1G to a 40D in a Ikelite housing. I want to be able to shoot in TTL mode but with this housing the YS110 will only shoot in manual mode. I also have the instruction manual. Pictures of the strobe can be found at: http://www.flickr.com/photos/32492676@N05/...57623404317919/ I will accept payment via PayPal.
  6. In case anyone was wondering, I have this working with the Z240 type 3. It appears to be shooting S-TTL correctly when slaved to the DS-51.
  7. Thanks for all of the device!!! I have trouble topside wiht the depth of field on the 100mm macro and that can only be amplified underwater. I also have a Sigma 10-20 and I may make that my first lens.
  8. Here’s the problem. My wife shoots a G9 in an Ikelite housing and DS-51 strobe. She wants to add an additional strobe to her rig. I have an YS110 alpha and an Inon Z240 type 2 she could shoot. You can purchase a dual electrical sync cable that will trigger two Ikelite strobes or two Inon/Sea&Sea strobes. There is no dual sync cord that allows you to trigger an Ikelite Inon/Sea&Sea combination. My thought was to connect the DS51 via the electronic sync cable and optically slave the YS110 or Z240 using a fiber optic mount on the DS-51 diffuser. Is there any reason this will not work? Can anyone suggest a more elegant solution? If the DS51 in operating in TTL mode, will the Inon and Sea&Sea retain their TTL capability in this configuration?
  9. I have about two years experience with a Sea and Sea DX-1G and decided it was time to take my DSLR underwater. The DX-1G had the ability to attach a wide angle lens underwater. 80% of my shots are close-ups but not necessarily a macro images. My underwater camera will be a Canon 40D which has a cropped sensor with a 1.6 focal length multiplier. Should I start shooting with my 17-85mm f4-5.6 EF-S IS USM or 100mm 1:2.8 EF USM Macro? My fear is the 100 mm will be to long of a lens. The 17-85 dome does not allow for manual focus and will require a diopter. The lens is also a 67mm filter size and the D250 diopter does not come in a 67mm. I am leaning towards the 17-85 but advice would be greatly appreciated.
  10. I am asking $900 or best offer for the system. US sales only. Shipping method and cost: UPS ground; $32 above the selling price. Payment method: PayPal The system was purchased approximately two years ago for $2000. This is a very nice crossover( one step above a point and shoot) camera with manual and auto mode settings. It also shoots very nice video. The original camera tray has been replaced with a Fisheye Digicam tray with flexible strobe arms. This makes positioning the strobe extremely easy. The system includes the wide angle lens with carrying bracket and an YS27 strobe. The wide angle lens is swappable underwater and its carrying bracket easily attaches to the tray via zip ties. The camera is equally good at taking macro and wide angle photos. The camera manual mode provides the same exposure and depth of field control as a DSLR without the several thousands of dollars equipment price tag. This is an excellent system for someone who would like to start to explore underwater photograph or upgrade from a simple point and shoot. This system includes everything you need to start taking underwater pictures; there is no need to be purchase additional items before you start using this system underwater. I am selling the system because I decided it is time to take my DSLR underwater. The system is two years old but is still in good shape. There is a very small scratch on the wide angle lens but it is not visible on the pictures. There is also a tear in the case’s factory cut foam but this defect it does not impact the integrity of the case.

  11. Can anyone id this shrimp? Shot in Roatan at approximately 50 feet. It was very fast moving and shy. Once it spotted me it retreated into a hole a never reemerged. http://i292.photobucket.com/albums/mm23/wi...08/M0014719.jpg http://i292.photobucket.com/albums/mm23/wi...08/M0014718.jpg
  12. I am fairly confident the dx-1g does use ttl metering. Set your Z40 to s-ttl, the camera to manual, to f-stop to 4.1, shutter to 1/80, iso to 100 and take a picture of your computer screen. The strobe should not have performed a full dump. Now place you hand over the lens, take another picture and the strobe will perform full dumb. Given this behavior it must have ttl. The f-stop needs to be set 3.2 or large else the strobe cannot squelch fast enough and pictures are over exposed.
  13. If you are using the strobe set, the white balance to cloudy. If you are not using the strobe, the white slate trick works pretty good but you need to adjust every couple of meters. Do not manual adjust the white balance and also shoot the strobe. The strobe will compensate for the lose of color Will this camera shoot RAW format? If so, buy a Photoshop Elements and fix the white balance when you get back from the trip
