    2 x YS-90Duo
  1. Sea & Sea Fiber Optic Retaining Ring for YS-90 (SS-92992) I have been clumsy and lost one of mine ( during a house move), going to Bali in 3 weeks and now panicing as I have also lost a Sea&Sea L type cable too. The cable I can get quite easily (but will buy if folks have 2 spare) but struggling with the cap in the UK, importing post costs more than the cap... :-( My rig looks very sad half built.... :-(
  2. I tried to buy from there but when you do they do not have any stock & they return funds.
  3. I have one somewhere I do not use...I will see if I can find it, I am in the UK though
  4. Could somebody attach a photo of the camera within the Oly housing? An idea of the amount of space at the top of the camera is what I am looking for...I amplanning to drill the housing and fit a bulkhead and weikamp adapt to 2 x YS-110alphas. I prefer the 110s to the Oly offer, even though they are both made by Sea&Sea.....Oly strobes just use control board from Oly and not Sea&Sea borad. would be really helpful if somebody could help with this.....
  5. Please contact me if anybody has one of these that is working and no longer needed. thxs.....
  6. Hi, Is there anybody about who might happen to have a Weikamp converted Oly outfit? Or an Oly C3 converter board for sale? I am having trouble with mine, it is a few years old, but I need to work out which part is broken, board or y-sync. I can test for a signal through the cable and all the internal sync cables seem complete when tested pin for pin, I can also find no cross connection in any wires so I am thinking it is my board. Easiest way to double check is to connect my strobes & sync to another board to check...... thxs in advance for any help.......Mark
  7. mine is wrecked, anybody got one for sale? Thxs
  8. Still stuff to see? Whalesharks & Manta or have they moved on? Thxs
  9. I am toying with exactly that issue...e series with 14-54 & twin ys-110a vs xz-1 with twin UFL01... I use today C5050z & twin ys-90s, wet Inon 2x macro, wide angle and wide angle in dome. Wet lenses are heavy but sort of like them, (just use less lead) I will try to keep the wet lenses if I go to XZ-1 but not sure about e series version..... Anybody tried the zx-1 with Oly strobes (even though both the Oly housings and Strobes are actually made by S&S anyway....the UFL01 has Oly's own circuit board inside)
  10. I used wired twin YS-90's via Weikamp converter..... I am buying a new rig and I will be doing the same to YS-110alphas. Reason - I have had them on more than 1000 dives, no problems. Travelled all over the world with them. S&S are not fully compatible with Oly TTL, this is because S&S make the official Oly strobes and housings and the S&S standard range is meant for the rest of the market ;-)
  11. All variants considered...Must be in good cond and no leak damage. I know these housing are old and will be used, but there is a difference 'Used' & 'Abused'.... PM me the details if there are any lying around unloved in peoples junk corners.....
  12. I Love my 5050, I have two bodies, and a really nice set-up but am increasingly frustrated with my Weikamp conversion breaking. My main hate is the shutter lag, when my image is ready the camera is 3 seconds behind.... I was toying with XZ-1 or E-PL2 (sorry but if you cut me in half it will say Olympus in a ring.......)with Zen adapted housing & twin 110 alphas.... Maybe I could take my E-500 or E-3 underwater but I would cry if it got wet..... thxs for your input......anybody else?
  13. Hi - not really a newbie.....had U/W outfit from film(S&S MMII) and converted digital in 2004 to a C-5050z and still have it. Have re-joined Wetpixel after a few years off diving with a view to getting back into my hobby.... I have a big question....Is it worth upgrading my kit....???? I am looking E-PL2 with YS-110alphas and Zen dome, 9-18mm or keep my C-5050z with weikamp adapter to YS-90, 67mm screw on INON dome and macro..... I have publushed photos with my old kit and apart from shutter lag and pixel count I am struggling to justify a move which could cost me £1000 or more.... Opinions please.... thxs....
