  1. This is an oldie, but I believe it will work with any Ikelite TTL strobe DS50, DS51, DS125, DS160, DS161. This came out at the same time as the DS50/DS125 so the manual only lists those two models. I have no need for this, you pay shipping and its yours. I have PDF(s) of the manuals for this, but they are too large to upload.
  2. I'm thinking of adding a vacuum port to my Ikelite compact camera housing. I understand that the $$ cost of a flood (replacing the camera) is about the cost of the vacuum system, but I don't get to dive as frequently as I would like and almost always the opportunity cost is much greater than the replacement cost. For example I'm going on a 'bucket list' trip to Komodo / Raja Ampat / Triton Bay this autumn and losing the camera would really suck. Has anyone done a similar conversion. Ikelite says to remove a control knob, could I just drill and tap the housing?
  3. So I'm in search of an Ikelite DS125 replacement strobe. I was contacted via PM by scofieldbryan8 giving me a reference to a hamiltonholmes27@gmail.com. All was going well until I received a message from the hamiltonholmes27@gmail.com account saying it was really yekeen.su@gmail.com So rather than Zelle (which gives me no protection), I'm going to insist on PayPal (through a credit card). Just a FYI in case this has come up before or in the future.
  4. Yes Unfortunately the DS125 has been discontinued so long, Ikelite does not offer a repair service for the DS125. Yes, their customer support has been very good to me. I had a failed battery pack (new purchase) and with only three days to when I was scheduled to leave, they overnighted a replacement to me.
  5. The flash tube has died on my second DS125. Ideally I only want the front half (I have an almost new battery pack)
  6. Thanks, Sorry I was unclear, it will not even try and focus
  7. Sorry if this has been answered already. This is a Canon G16, Ikelite housing + 6" (wet) dome. Autofocus will not work when when fully zoomed in. Is this the expected behavior? I can certainly "fix" the problem by moving closer, but I'm at a loss to explain why.
  8. Looking to learn. I'm a reasonably experienced diver (350 dives) trying to improve my generally poor underwater photos. Current gear is not the problem. (Canon G16 in an Ikelite housing with two DS125 strobes, the Ikelite wide angle wet lens and an adapter for a 7 diopter macro). Nothing state-of-the-art, but I've seen exceptional photos taken with similar get
