  1. Hi y'all =)


    Im making a little waterproof box connector where i have a ikelite bulkhead (http://ikelite.com/web_pages/ics_conn.html, part #9104.55) and going to mount it into a peli waterproof case. Now i'm wondering, will the o-ring seal on the bulkhead work well with the plastic of the case or should i put a threaded metal plate inbetween (and epoxy it so it's sealed to the peli case)? Thought you guys have probably done things like this already so why not ask =)


    The thing im doing btw is to sync a Pocketwizard (inside the peli case) with the camera housing. The electronics and everything works so far just curious about how to get the best seal, even though the actual case will be surface or even above water. I'd rather not accidentally drag it down and drown the pocketwizard if i can avoid it.




  2. Got my underwater housing in January, and yesterday was the first time i managed to get a model brave enough to dare the icy waters of 18C Swedish summer lake ;D Murky, dark, and about 1 meter viz but everything worked like a charm. Canon EOS 5D mk2 in Ikelite housing, 17-40 F4L and a DS51 strobe set to TTL.










    First shoot, definately not the last. Got next weekend booked already ;D




  3. Howdie yall. Been lurking and reading on and off and as i just recently managed to do my very first underwater shoot decided to start be more active =)


    Got a Ikelite housing with the smallest DS51 strobe and the large dome for the 17-40 F4L on my Canon EOS 5D Mk2. Worked suprisingly well considering the circumstances i was shooting in, c:a 1 m visibility, dark, murky waters, lot of particles in the water, no sunlight (raining on the surface ;). And it performed like a charm, very happy =)


    Going to post the first pictures in the gallery section when im allowed to post there =)


    And other than that, im Swedish, 40 years old, ex-scuba instructor (PADI OWSI) and technical diver (IANTD Adv. Nitrox) and an old apnea diver to boot. I work as a fashion photographer normally so you can guess what kind of animals im shooting in the water ;)
