  1. Hello pixlers! due to a recent and traumatic flooding incident im looking to replace one of my strobes. If anyone has or knows of a Sea and Sea YS-D1 strobe for sale i would love to hear about it. I think they were discontinued long ago and i definitley cant afford the new model! Fingers crossed... Thanks team
  2. Thanks for all the helpful info team. will be looking into options soon. might be time to upgrade the whole system anyway although that will have to wait for funding issues to be resolved. Im currently using canon 200d and tokina 10-17 in an ikelite box with (well was anyway) two ysd1 and although its a bit outdated and a bit budget ive had great results that im happy with. I did manage to get some reasonable shots but unfortunately without the strobes i didnt get the tiger shark sunburst mugshots i was hoping for... But i guess it just means ill have to go back! In the meantime im on the lookout for a single ys-d1 so if anyone knows of anything would be very grateful to hear about it. ill post in clssifieds anyway. willhave to post some photos here when ive been through them all! thanks again
  3. Thanks I remember reading about that when I got my system together? Is there a commercial product available now? Or do I need to macgyver something together?
  4. Thanks mate, I used to use fibre optics when I dived with rx100, made a lot more sense to me, simple and fairly indestructable, but then I decided to get an ikelite housing for my canon 200d (which I've used happily for a few years tbf) so no option for fibre optics. I really think they could add a FO port without to much trouble but hey ho. I've always used budget systems so never really had the perfect set up. Maybe have to rob a bank before the next trip. Now wondering if my insurance will pay out fir the strobes....
  5. Yeah, sadly I just can't afford to carry spares of everything. Anyway as you say, a good chance to try different techniques. Also, in trying to be positive I realised the truth... better to be diving in the maldives with no strobes than not to be diving in the maldives at all!
  6. Hi community, it's been a while but I'm in crisis mode. I just arrived in the maldives and managed to flood my strobes on day 1... not a great start. I was using two ys-d1 with a dual ikelite to sea and sea cable... one of the strobes is definitely done for and I assume this means the cable is done too as that is where the leak was... Extra upset as I'm going to fuvahmulah in a few days to see the tigers.... So... im aware that it's a super long shot but i was wondering if anyone is heading from UK to Maldives/Male/Fuvahmulah in the coming days.... I know it's very unlikely but I thought if any chance at all it's on wetpixel... Also I searched hi and low for u/w camera supplier in maldives and can't find anything... does anyone know of any shops or gear supplier here? Worst case scenario is I'll end up shooting tiger sharks with natural light... so it's not all bad :) Tanks all for any help.
  7. Hi, do you still have this port? If so could you tell me the ikelite number for it please? Cheers, Nick
  8. hi, is this still available? does it have 67 mm thread? also i am in the UK so shipping might need adjusting... thanks
  9. Hi all, im on the lookout for an ikelite flat port, DLM 5516.50. Maybe someone has one lying around gatherng dust...? i know its a long shot but worth a try... cheers, Nick
  10. Hi, are these still for sale? do they have 67mm threads? thanks.
  11. Hi, does this have a 67mm thread? or is it a smaller 52 thread? Thanks.

  13. Hi all, Canon housing from the back of the cupbaord for sale! Posting here as I thought it might be possible that someone here has one of these old cameras lying around and needs a housing. Served me well when i first started taking pics underwater. Never failed, no leakes or serious damage. obviously has wear and tear. Just thought id ask here before i put on ebay. Please make an offer if anybody is interested! Thanks, Nick

  15. Hi all, i have some gear for sale. Sony rx 100 ii, Recsea polycarbonate housing - cws rx100 ii, UWL-100 wide angle wet lens and a variety of chargers and accessories. I am selling as i have finally upgraded to a basic dslr set up. This system has served me very well and ive managed some results that im very proud of. I used it with a pair of sea and sea strobes, the wide angle wet lens and macro diopters and have found it to quite an effective system for both macro critters and wide angle subjects. I will post links to some of my imagesin the comments and you can judge for yourselves. Obviously this is now quite an old camera and wont be suitable for those who need cutting edge tech but for me the image quality is fine. Prices will reflect the age of the model of camera (i think sony are up to mark 6 now?!). If anyone is interested to buy they will need to find a tray and strobes and arms etc as i need to hang on to mine for my new system. All the gear is in good condition. The housing has been regularly greased in the buttons, comes with two o rings, no scratches or serious damage, clear glass. Shows signs of wear of course. It has a 67mm thread to recieve wet lenses and a removeable port for fiber optic cables which i will include with the housing. Has been discontinued now but cost me USD $500 originally will accept £250 ono https://www.backscatter.com/Recsea-CWS-RX100II-Sony-RX100-MarkII-Underwater-Housing The UWL - H100 is as good as new, no scratches or water marks. comes for front and rear element protective caps. cheapest i can find in UK is £360. Asking £250 as it is in great condition. https://www.bristolcameras.co.uk/p-inon-uwl-h100-type-2-m67-wide-angle-conversion-lens.htm The RX 100 ii camera has one issue, the automatic pop up flash is no longer functional as a 'pop up' flash. still works fine to trigger strobes etc. Its not a great design unfortunately. Otherwise the camera is fine. Will include all chargers and 2 batteries (and a third if i can find it...) As it has this fault i can accept £100 (is around £300 for a new one here) https://www.dpreview.com/reviews/sony-cybershot-dsc-rx100-m2 I Would prefer to sell all together if possible. £550 with all the accesories. I really hope this camera gets used again. I dont want it gathering dust in the back of my cupboard...
  16. Hi thanks for your response. To set the scene I currently run a Sony rx100 mk ii rig with ysd2s on fiber optic cables. I've always enjoyed shooting it and very happy with the results but I want to try switching to dslr to see what I can achieve. The 200d is as up to date a dslr as I can afford really. And I already have the tokina 10 17 so really all I need is a housing that allows for fiber optics. I am more considering the ikelite again as I have read now that you can use a ttl to fiber otice converter device?? Sounds like it might be good option...
  17. Well thanks very much for the info... The ikelite is looking more attractive now! I thought sea and sea or someone similar might be planning one. Had emailed them but no answer... Thanks again...
