  1. I would be interested. Do I NEED it? No....would I buy it? Most definitely. Once I had the $$$, of course
  2. I forgot you had the same issue I have/had with YS-D1 on the ike housing...what i noticed on my recent night dive is that it didn't happen nearly as often as my day dives. maybe 2 times the entire dive.
  3. after debating about the cost of ike strobes (i.e. the 160/161), i went with the YS-D1 and use the ikelite S&S/Inon cable...although, it doesn't allow TTL, at least I can still use the D1 and will run a second D1 via FO slave.
  4. I do like the SL1 a lot... Great little camera that takes great action or still shots. I've taken some fairly good shots of local surfing in addition to the landscape, flora shots and have not been disappointed. And so far, I like it underwater as well...Now, I just need a dive where I have more time than I've had on these test dives so I am not just snapping away randomly...
  5. okay...here we go (unfortunately all terrible shots): the lionfish is at 10mm the gorgonian is at 12mm
  6. there is serious vignetting with the tokina 10-17 @ 10mm...minor vignetting @ 12mm. I am a bit disappointed with the 10mm vignetting.
  7. here's a question...will the 60mm macro fit behind the 18-55/10-17 dome? I haven't ordered the 60mm port yet but would like to use the 60...
  8. got mine in the water earlier for a quick dive...was just using my kit lens and a single D1. trying to figure how to post pics -__-
  9. just picked up the ike housing for the SL1/100D...gonna try out my tokina 10-17 with the dome here in the next few days. ike says there is some vignetting from 10-12mm (if I recall correctly) so we'll see.
  10. during day dives, fussing about with a 67mm lens isn't too bad...at night, on a wreck at 130ft, not really all that fun.
  11. I know I can't expect much but any tips/examples of night wreck shots on here using only 2 strobes? Thanks in advance.
  12. I have seen some nice photos with the G1X as well...if I can find one for a nice price, I intend to pick it up.
  13. i have used both and do not miss the RX100...yes, IQ and FOV is better with the RX100 but the G15 still performs very well. G15 w/DC48 housing (no wet lens) RX100 w/ikelite housing (no wet lens and small crop) RX100 w/out crop (but a little further away)
  14. moving on from M43 (for now) and moving my 8mm dome port. it is in excellent condition..a few minor nicks (nothing that shows up in pics). lens hood included (not pictured). $300 shipped takes it. thank you for looking.
  15. from what i have read about it, short answer is no...
  16. here's recent example (cropped and some light LR work...i don't know more than the presets). lens set to F11-0.5ft....tried that same setting on a pretty big sea fan (second pic) and need to go back with it set to 0.8ft i think
  17. i use the 7.5mm Samyang FE MFT on my E-PL1 and it takes some pretty decent shots in the precision dome port for the panny 8mm. apples and oranges, i know, but learning to work the samyang has made me less "needy" to get the AF panny 8mm FE.
  18. I took the dome hood off for some shots today and didn't have any lens flare...just the vignetting from the dome edge but none of the petal/hood unsightliness...is that a word?
  19. the other thing i did was set my LCD to 7x magnification so i could check focus...easy when there is not surge/current but even a little of it makes it a bit difficult.
  20. not the 8mm but the 7.5mm FE MFT on my E-PL1 (in the Precision 8mm port). Most shot at F11-1/125-ISO100. Distance ring set to 0.5ft: uncropped cropped (different shot, though) still working on focus and strobe positioning but my first attempts at using this were less than stellar...hope this helps.
  21. pics and info here...thank you http://www.scubaboar...35-housing.html e-mail - chile7236@gmail.com or usmc7236@gmail.com
  22. i have used it and it works great. it actually blocks the flash but only because it sits at flash level...i did not see any negative issues while i used it on my Ike housing. but it is a bit pricey for what it is.
  23. did you use any diopters? great looking pics.
