  1. If you have knob interference you can remove the knobs and shave the top surface dowin with a file, sandpaper or whatever. they are made from a solid color infused plastic of some sort. As long as the viewfinder doesn't interfere with the control shafts you can make it work. Replacement knobs are also available from ikelite.
  2. You need to look at the housing add on items as a once in a lifetime purchase. I agree with the purchase of a vacuum system. With the items like a vacuum system, viewfinder, strobes, arms and clamps, you purchase them once and when you upgrade your camera, you upgrade your housing and transfer all the items to the new housing. Yes you may need to get a different adapter for the vacuum system and viewfinder but that cost would be minimal in relation to the cost of new items. It may be out of your price range right now but it may be less expensive than buying a inon and then selling it and buying a nauticam viewfinder.
  3. You should really look at the Nauticam viewfinder. You will be much happier with the Nauticam Item. The field of view and the size of the image is great. You can read more information here https://wetpixel.com/articles/thoughts-on-viewfinders-and-mini-review-nauticam-45-degree Have a great day Bill
  4. I have see this type of cracks with acrylic plastic that had been cleaned with alcohol. That may be the case here. Do you know the history of the strobes?

  6. Hi Yes they allow you to get physically closer to the subject and still be able to focus, AND they ALSO increases the size of the of the subject as if you were zoomed in more. They reduce the working range a ton making it hard to work with. These are the benefits / problems to using a diopter with the Canon 60mm macro. It would it increase the size of the subject, kind of like a teleconverter, and since your closer the object would be larger, and since you are focusing closer the depth of field will be shorter and it will be harder to focus and you probably will not get the complete item in focus. You may also have problems lighting the subject due to the distance from the lens / diopter and the lens diopter may be in the way of your lights. The only option that I see is more megapixels and cropping the picture. You did a great job on your research.
  7. if you dont have any takers I will gladly take them
  8. If you ever get any information I also would be interested. BLibecap@gmail.com
  9. I am wondering if you dome had a coating on it. If so you are out of luck unless you remove all the coating using #3. I have had great success with Novis products, check out tutorial on their web site.

      Hi pininca

      Could I ask you please to respond to adverts by using the Reply feature at the bottom of the post rather than in your status field?

      I think you will have more success that way too!

      Thanks!

      Best wishes

      Hi Sir, thinks for your care about me, but my English is very pool, I just want find housing and some parts for my Nikon D80, think you!

  11. Can you help me identify a housing? We would be happy to help you identify your housing. Please send the housing serial numbers along with photos of the front and back of the housing to us at ikelite@ikelite.com. The serial number is typically stamped on the top front corner and top edge of the back. Unfortunately we are not able to identify older film models and many older video models due to a lack of serialization tracking.
  12. Send pictures to ikelite and they will tell you what it is.
