  1. I’d have to think that moving the screen from within the confines of the original camera body, as the Tilta kit does, would make it impossible to use any housing designed for the camera, as produced. I’d be awfully surprised if there we the extra ~5 mm that would seem to be needed for the modified camera to fit in the housing....
  2. Thank you, all, for the responses. I’ve a bit of experience with electronics, so the capacitors, whilst keeping me mindful of my actions, “shouldn’t” be a major concern. I was figuring that I’d have to extract the inner workings out through the front. It’s really, now, more a matter of finding the time to delve into it.
  3. As the title states, I’m in need of advice on how to disassemble a Sea & Sea YS-01 strobe. One of mine seems to have gone wonky... sometimes turning on, and other times not... Living in Honduras, sending it for repair isn’t a great option. Since it works less often than it functions, I figure that I’ve nothing to lose by delving into home repair. Any assistance will be greatly appreciated! Thanks, in advance! Elliot
  4. Comparing it to my 100mm acrylic, where one can easily see the locking o-ring, my guess is that the 140mm fisheye glass is glued in place. I don’t see where there’d be any room to work an o-ring down between the glass of the dome and the port shade petals. Assuming it’s glued, Nauticam has figured out a way to make it so there’s no adhesive squishing out, anywhere.... Impressive!
  5. I'm curious if the Nauticam glass domes are secured similarly? My 140mm fisheye dome has gotten scratched, but I believe that if I could rotate the glass by 90 degrees, it might be out of the field of view (M4/3 8mm lens)… I'm residing in Honduras, so a quick trip to a Nauticam dealer isn't really in the cards...
  6. This isn’t necessarily a bug, but is an annoyance... on Safari, on my iPhone, when I revisit a thread that shows as having new content, I get sent to the beginning of said thread, as opposed to the first unread post (which the old site used to do)... Perhaps, I’ve something amiss in my settings... Though, I’m skeptical of that...
  7. When mine came loose, I used a dab of Gorilla Glue... It seems to be a thick consistency, water proof contact cement. BTW, Reef Photo recommended epoxy. HTH
  8. More likely, Im overly cautious... However, for a little bit of extra time and effort, Im more than happy that Ive still got functioning strobes... 🤙
  9. Use a smaller aperture, to increase DoF, and continuous autofocus... The smaller aperture will also require a long shutter opening, to get a reasonable background exposure, and increase the amount of trailing blur... then, trip the shutter a bit before the subject in in the best position... Takes some practice, but its not difficult...
  10. For sure... until that day when they flood... Unfortunately, after several years of good service, both of my Sea & Sea strobes, independently, flooded in the last year... After those events, I used copious amounts of distilled water, followed by isopropyl alcohol, followed by packing with rice or silica gel packs to get as much moisture out as possible... To date, both strobes seem to function properly... Whew....
  11. Looking at the shape of the operculum (gill cover), I believe you are correct in thinking that its a mutton snapper. The way it has a small spike shape right on the caudal corner seems, to me, to be indicative of a Lutjanus analis.
  12. I cannot see how one could add the M28 port, without cutting and welding.... Im thinking that its a purchase new housing type upgrade...
  13. Perhaps... though I dont see the vertical bars that muttons have.... how big was the snapper?
  14. The top one looks to be a tobaccofish - Serranus tabacarius
  15. In situations like this, the importer/distributor are often independent business entities, and see grey market and other legitimate imports as money taken out of their pockets... Even in the US, which has (or had) fairly strong consumer protection laws, independent importers often have no obligation to repair under warranty, or even service for pay, products brought in from abroad. To me, this is awfully myopic, but it is a fairly prevalent attitude in many niche industries. That, to me, is a core problem with most enthusiast industries....
