  1. As the title says. Looking for a used Ikelite DLM 1.2 or 2.2 inch extension. Thanks!
  2. Thanks for the advice! I actually attach it to a "land based" Quick release belt mount! It's more bulk and hydrodynamics I'm worried about, as it already slows me down substantially. I will get back to you on the buoyancy measurement asap. But seems like very strong velcro or some other quick release attachment style would be good. Thanks for the advice
  3. Hey TimG! I definitely need to do the luggage thing. I bought one, just haven't gotten around to it. The only problem with the arms is, I want to keep this rig as streamlined as possible. I often use it while freediving and attach it to my weight belt when I need my hands free. So an arm wasn't something I was interested in. I guess I could attach more foam to the free space on the top left of my housing. Any advice on attaching foam? Specific Glue, velcro?
  4. Good day all, Been struggling with buoyancy and leveling of my camera since adding on the extended viewfinder. So far this is what I have come up with. Would love any other recommendations or tips on attaching buoyancy or attaching my current buoyancy better. I have put a few small tire weights on the bottom of the dome. It is still back heavy and of course rotates to the right due to the handle. I am a big fan of one handle unless using strobes, to keep the system small. Thanks!
  5. Thanks for your response. It actually works fine, took 500 shots while birding later in the day and no incidences. Seemed to only happen with live view opened and the flashes firing
  6. Like the title says. Would prefer a straight, but will consider a 45!
  7. Hey all, Unsure if anyone has had this issue before. I have a canon sl2, ikelite housing, dual ikelite DS161 strobes. I haven't had this issue before, but after taking around a dozen photos, my mirror locked up and I was unable to view through the viewfinder/take further photos. The remedy was to remove the battery. However it occurred on the second dive as well. Could these be some sort of voltage issue? Will be calling ikelite tomorrow about it. Thanks!
  8. Like the title says! Looking for some clamps! Preferably 4 clamps
  9. Two Ikelite DS50 strobes with diffusers, ikelite strobe arms, and dual sync chord. Working well and in great condition. Batteries not included. Asking $400 shipped. https://imgur.com/a/Q8l8wg4
  10. Thank you all for the responses! Ikelite is still doing the exchange program, but only for models 2016 and after. Unfortunately these strobes are older than 2016. Waiting to see if the price will drop, to help lessen the sting of buying new batteries!
  11. Hello all. I've been offered a killer deal for some Ikelite DS161 strobes. They have not been used in many years, and have lithium ion battery packs. i have read some negative things about the lithium battery packs online, but nothing concrete about what to look for or how to know the longevity of these batteries. I don't really want to spend a large sum upgrading to Nimh if I don't have to right off the bat. Any suggestions on if I should still purchase these strobes(they are allowing me to test them out), and suggestions of how to determine if the lithium batteries will be usable for the long run? Or any other valuable information! Thanks Michael
  12. Never used Ikelite Underwater Camera Flexarm with extra locline. For use with Ikelite DS50 or DS51 Never been used. Asking $35 + shippingWas planning on making this:
