  2. Hi. I saw the same arms on one Italian guy. He told me that it was DIY project of his friend. But they was without anodized surface. May be try to find the same on Italian manufacturer.
  3. hi ErolE You can solve this problem using the system flash in the housing. I have DIY housing for Canon 580 EX 2 and using control via the camera menu of Canon 5d mk 2. the second curtain sync and high-speed sync work perfect. I can use multiple flash also
  4. Hi all. I do not wanna to discuss in this thread is needed TTL mode underwater or not. If that, I shoot in manual mode, the last 8 years. I carried out experiments with system flashes Canon 580 EX II with Canon 5DmkII in a custom housing. The first flash was managed and synchronization by electric cable (6 wires), and the second flash via an optical fiber (I use TosLink audio cable). Flashes as Sea&Sea YS 250 Pro and Inon Z240 did not work in TTL mode. They fires only in Manual mode with the optical synchronization. Next step was when I use the system flashes - Canon 580 EX II and Nissin 866 pro mk II. I was able to flash in e-TTL mode as a clear mining on the master flash on the cable wire, and on the remote flash unit via optical cable. Custom Housings for system flashes was without any control buttons. I operated of all modes of the two flashes via the camera menu. It was really great.
  5. Hi I have used Sealux 5d for 4 years (up to 500 dives) and for 5Dmk2 for 2 years up to now (200 dives). I haven't any problems with this this housing. Easy to use, easy to manipulate underwater, no problem than preparing to dive - only 15-20 minutes need for it. I use models with LD viewfinder.
