  1. 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.
  2. if you dont have any takers I will gladly take them
  3. If you ever get any information I also would be interested. BLibecap@gmail.com
  4. 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!


      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!

  6. 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.
  7. Send pictures to ikelite and they will tell you what it is.
  8. Hi Mark i would like the Fluorodiving Kit. I have a verified paypal account. please contact me BLibecap@gmail.com
  9. Bill V It is my understanding that light behaves differently in water than it does in air. The light from the strobe travels a distance altho short before it reaches the diffuser and then after it goes threw the diffuser it is back in the water. Therefore comparing a strobe performance in the air is somewhat irrelevant to how it will preform underwater and then adding the diffuser in the mix really makes it irrelevant.
  10. Hey Bill This is cool, where can we find the stuff that backscatter did that you reference? Bill
  11. I don't think you want to cut the ends off as they are polished to enable as much light transfer as possible.
  12. I have done this before and had success. First of all, you have to treat this as a business transaction not loaned to a friend. You can find sample contracts on the internet and you need to have one. Figure out what your replacement cost for all items rented would be. In my case that was $4000. Then get that amount in deposit, not a check but actual cash deposit. Then the rent was $400 a week. I then spent about an hour of time with the renter going over the procedures and cautions and operation of the system. Once the system is returned check it all out and go through your normal testing procedures and post-trip procedures, clean it up well. Your contract should state that you have 30 days to return the deposit less any cost for damages or cost for missing items. I did this 3 times before there was a problem and I had to keep some of the deposit. I later sold the system to the renter. Bill
