  1. I switched over to the Nauticam world after using Ikelite for the last handful of years. I'm looking to get appropriate ports/extensions for my 90mm macro and 28mm w/ 16mm Fisheye Converter For the 90mm Macro: Port - 37126 ( N100 Macro port 105) For the 28 with FEC Port Base - 37303 (N100 to N120 35.5mm port adaptor with zoom/focus knob) Extension - 21130 (Extension ring 30 with lock) Lens port - 18810 (N120 140mm optical glass fisheye port) I am also in the market for the M67 to Bayonet Mount Converter for Wet Lenses for my WWL-1 The part that attaches to the front of the 67mm threaded port, converting it to bayonet. na-83213 I think this is what I want to screw onto my 28mm f2 Port (37127) to be compatible with the bayonet mount on my WWL-1 Many thanks!
  2. I'm looking for a Nauticam N100 Flat Port 32 for Sony FE 28mm f/2 Lens with 67mm threads for NA-A7II Housings (37127) Recently purchased the WWL-1 and am looking for the flat port with the glass in good shape. Many thanks!
  3. I'd like to keep shipping within US, unless there are absolutely no takers. Reduced price to $600 OBO. Thanks!
  4. One used Retra Strobe Ikelite electrical sync cord connector. Also has an optical connection. Works like new. Comes with two diffusers (only one pictured), neoprene camo cover, original box and manual. Great condition with some minor cosmetic flaws (see photos). I purchased this strobe spring 2018, used it on a handful of river snorkeling trips. No flooding to battery compartment or battery corrosion. This strobe is amazing. Well thought out design, intuitive, powerful, and easy to operate even with gloves. I would've loved to have picked up a second one, but they are currently being redesigned with plans of a relaunch in the future. I couldn't wait around any more and picked up two Inons instead. Shoot me any questions you might have. $740 includes PayPal and shipping fees within the United States
  5. Shoot. Thanks for figuring that out. I should’ve asked. I have one on the way though. Hopefully it’s in good condition otherwise I’ll be sure to send him a message. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Thanks! Looked like a package deal. I have one offer I’m looking into now.
  7. I'm looking to complete a strobe pair for some jobs coming up and a looking to get either a second Retra strobe or a second Inon Z-240. I purchased one Retra strobe with Ikelite connection for the summer and recently wanted to buy a second one, but learned that they are temporarily discontinued. I also have one Inon Z-240 on hand that I would be happy to pair up instead. Looking for either in good working condition. Let me know how much! Many thanks.
  8. Is there a way to tell if the sync cord was flooded? Both seem to operate as they should when I attach them to my camera in my Ikelite housing.
  9. Price drop to $1200 for the pair. Shipping and PayPal fees included. Thanks!
  10. I have two used Ikelite DS161 Strobes/Video lights up for sale. I purchased both of them used last spring 2017 from Ebay. I used them both less than 10 times (probably more like 4 times) and realized that they are just too unwieldy for instream photography. I recently bought a Retra strobe and I think that the size is a bit more what I am looking for. So I am now trying to offload these two Ikelites. One of the strobes has some cosmetic wear from the previous owner (see pics). The other strobe is in great shape. Both strobes are fully functional and operate well. Both have battery packs, sync port covers (metals screw caps) and both have the 1" ball adapters. However, I only have one diffuser and one charger. Looking for $1400 for the pair - shipping and PayPal fees included. PayPal or local pickup in Seattle, WA.

  11. I do a lot of in-stream photography and I would like to use a compact 6" dome on my Ikelite housing rather than the giant 8" dome. This is for an A7RII and primarily a 28mm F/2 with fisheye converter. I was wondering if anyone has experience with this setup or if someone knows if it's possible or not. Ikelite's port chart makes no reference to the 6-inch dome other than that the 15mm Sigma causes vignetting. I tried to contact Ikelite with no success. I also got in touch with Backscatter.com but they didn't seem to have any idea either. Thanks. Thought I'd check in with folks here before I fork money over to try it out.
  12. Thanks, Aquatic. Luckily, 10Bar makes a S6 to Sea and Sea sync cable. I ordered one up from Aditech and hopefully it works out. Manual is completely fine with me, thanks for pointing that out.
  13. I just received a reply from Juan at Aditech. Super helpful. So it seems that Aquatech uses a special ordered bulkhead that has an S6 bulkhead with a Male Mini connector. Normal S6 bulkheads offered by 10Bar uses a Female Micro connector to connect to the hotshoe plug. I'll attach the email below but what I have is basically different in size and orientation from a normal 10Bar bulkhead. I am going to first try to make a short connection between the hotshoe cable and the bulkhead cable that has female mini connections on either end. If that doesn't work I am going to solder the connections. Hopefully this proves helpful for someone down the road. Hi Take a look at the attached picture, the right Male Mini connector comes with the hotshoe plug that fits the Female Mini connector of the Canon 6pin bulkhead (not the one you have) and the left Male Micro connector on the picture fits in the Female Micro connector of the S6 bulkheadhttp://www.aditech-uw.com/es/tienda/1435-10bar-pa-bh-scm6.html and according to your pictures, you have a S6 bulkhead with a Male Mini (not a Micro¡) connector, it´s clear that you cannot plug your Male Mini connector with any of these, in order to be compatible you should have a Female Mini or Micro type connector. You will have to cut the connectors and solder each individual wires, or if you can wait, we can order to 10Bar one hotshoe Canon plug with a Female mini connector
  14. I have a seemingly unique situation and I am not sure many people have any experience with the equipment I am about to mention, but I hope that it will get me some leads. I have an AquaTech Elite housing for my 5D3, which I use for photographing primarily salmonids in creeks and streams in Alaska and Washington state. This housing has been great as far as it's compact size and minimal weight. I want to start to move towards the marco arena to photograph juvenile salmonids and other smaller fish species, but I am finding out quickly that my strobe options are limited to a housing for a 580EX II which is offered by Aquatech. My Aquatech housing I believe uses a 10Bar 6-pin bulkhead. On the bulkhead is written "SCM6" and I am trying to use this bulkhead to use a pair of hard wired Sea and Sea strobes, as I don't think fiber optics is an option for me (no popup flash or room for a prefabbed led type trigger). The first hurdle is connecting my camera's hotshoe to the bulkhead on the inside of my housing. www.aditech-usa.com in the USA has several 10Bar hotshoe cable offerings and two for the Canon hotshoe. One is specified as a "Canon 6-Pin" and another specified as a "Canon-S6" hotshoe to bulkhead connection. I am assuming the "Canon 6-pin" is to go to something like a housed 580EX II which makes me think that the "Canon-S6" is what i want to go to my "SCM6" bulkhead? Are 6 pin connections all the same? If someone has experience with these cables the bulkhead has a 6 male pin lead to connect to the hotshoe connection. I have seen pictures of both where there's either 6 male pins on the hotshoe connection to the bulkhead and another with 6 female plugs on the hotshoe connection to the bulkhead <is what I need. Then from the SCM6 bulkhead I am guessing that I want the SUBTRONIC standard 6-pin electrical sync cord for connecting 10Bar housing to a INON or Sea & Sea strobe, non TTL offered by Aditech. (10Bar SyC-SHF6-SSM5) which would allow me to connect to Sea and Sea strobes from my 6 pin bulkhead. I guess I would be hesitant to try to switch bulkheads, and I've also noticed the DIY led setup to use optical triggers, but I would like to see if this hardwired setup will work. I would be very very very grateful for any help or advice. Thanks
