  1. 20mm for the Tokina and 20mm for the TC. But most 4" domes have the first 20mm built into the mount.
  2. The YS-D1 recycles a bit slower than the YS-D2J and doesn't have a tone, or lighted back. Also the knobs on them are small and easily moved out of position. That said, I have 4 that just keep on going. I have used 1 YSD2 and a YSD1 together and they shoot ok, but the difference in recycle time sometimes screws up shots. The D2000 has quite a bit less power and would not match up. Jack
  3. Both are good lenses, but the 7-14mm focuses much closer and particularly with the loss of FOV, it's much wider, so it's greeat for CF/WA or wrecks, etc. You get more reach with the 12-40 so for sharks or big animals in clear water it has it's uses. 7-14mm

  8. You must use one of the MWL flip holders or the included bayonet mount and rotate the sunshade. Make sure you're not in DX mode. I've had no problems with it or the SMC.
  9. There is a new ball mount plate and kit from Gates to alleviate this issue. It uses standard 2 screw base to ball mounts from UCLS or others. New consumer housings with these handles are coming pre-drilled for the pin from the plate, but it can be retrofitted onto existing handles by drilling the necessary hole. Part number 3000-97-274 – Ball Mount Adapter Disc, KIT, set of 2 (Ball Mount Sold Separately)
  10. The older YS-D2 has some issues and although S&S won't admit it, they fixed the weak triggering on the D2J model, at least that's what we've figured out. The YS-D2J can be reliably fired using the Nauticam trigger. But yoiu do need to use high-quality sync cords. We've actually found the Sea & Sea cords to be the best ones to use.
  11. Yes, it will help. I've used it with a SagaDive 9" glass dome for instance.
  12. When I shot that combo with a Sigma 15mm FE it was terrible on the D850, yes it focused closely, but the DOF was awful and the images degraded. This is about as good as it got.
  13. I'm curious about this setup and would enjoy seeing some shots. My experience with putting the Kenko TC with lenses on the D850 hasn't been good. Weird DOF and degraded sharpness... but Ihaven't used it with the 8-15 Nikor.
  14. You may have to configure the LED trigger board to work with your strobes. Setting may not be compatible with two different strobes. I've gotten D1 strobes to work with the LED trigger board to1/320th sec in manual. TTL is about 1/250th max. And that's not always consistent. Jack
