  1. Dear Alex: The Subal plug and cord just arrived in fine condition, many thanks.  I will now proceed to replace the electric plug and install it in my trusty old housing.  Elias Amador

      Yes, the ribbon cable had become unsoldered from the hot shoe, so I replaced it and the little red plastic plug. It required a bit of careful soldering using a low power microscope to see what I was doing, as each solder point was quite small.  Everything is together now, and I have learned some useful new repair tricks. 
      Many thanks for the gift, it is much appreciated.  elias amador

  2. I was hoping it might have the gs180 viewfinder

      The GS180 viewfinder new is well over a thousand dollars, but with luck you can find a used one for about $500.   The standard viewfinder on this housing is over $200 new, so just it alone pays for the entire assembly.  This housing can be used underwater as it is, just add the camera and lens, readily available on eBay.  Or it can be used for spare parts, either way it pays for itself.    
      Cheers,  Elias
