  1. Really liked the tutorial. I'm doing the official adobe one and I prefer yours... step by step Idiot proof Cheers
  2. Would be nice to have to much light and have to turn it down!!! from the owner of a single DS50
  3. I think with the lower light I get in scotland the only change I have made is shutter speed now 1/100 I am going to get a spotting light but dont know which one yet ikelite has a bracket and torch that fits under the DS50 strobe will try this and let u know if it works
  4. I dont rinse my camera till I get home. Then I fill the sink with slightly warm water wash all the surfaces and leave it there for an hour or two. then I let it drip dry. PS and if I'm not using the housing for say a week I take out the main o-ring and keep it in a sealed bag. When I open the strobe battery compartment the strobe is always pointing up. If there is some water in the gap between the cover and the strobe it does not go into the battery compartment and corode the terminals. The battery cover is also stored in a sealed bag. All rechargable batterys are kept fully charged (strobe spotting light camera) I always take great care that silicone grease is only on the o-rig and use as little as possible. grease is not for sealing its to stop the o-ring bonding to the housing surface. That my Opinion and it works for me.
  5. The redsea south not as many divers and big fish. A livaboard like the grand sea serpent!!

  8. I have an Ikelite DS50 The one that takes batterys not the new one that u have to buy a nicad pack. Does this mean the second hand value has just gone up. When will the people who design diving kit realise we dont need another battery charger and batterys. we need standard batterys and chargers Is it just me or do you have to many chargers and diff batterys?
