  1. Yes this port Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Does anyone have a flip adapter for the DSLR modular port lying around taking up valuable storage space. Attached picture is only an indication of what I’m after. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Very interesting, almost looks like it’s got some ancient armor on Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Darn nice pictures [emoji1305] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. You have an email sent to the above address Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Thanks all, appreciate the feedback Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Thanks. Had it in the tub submerged for about 24hr and dry inside, but I did remove the camera first. I think vacuum is my future, the housing doesn’t have a vacuum port yet, will this assist as a safeguard? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I’ve noticed droplets in my Ikelite housing (Canon T2i) on previous dives and put it down to condensation from the heat buildup, normal I suppose. I usually put 2 x silica packs in the housing. This past weekend I did a long dive but didn’t put the silca pack in. After the dive I noticed water in my housing, about 1-2 ml if I have to guess. I’ve put new o-rings in the day before and did 2 night dives and this particular dive was the next morning and never opened the housing. Is this something that does happen, the amount of condensate present in the housing? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Thanks for the feedback it makes sense what you’re saying about the free space and the light around the main subject. Appreciate your comments. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. I recently bought my first DSLR setup, Canon T2i with Ikelite housing. I know it’s an older system but it’s all my budget allows me. Anyhow this is my first attempt with it, light is provided by a flashlight, don’t have strobe or focus light yet. Hopefully I can only improve once I get my lighting sorted. All pics taken with a 60mm lens, f5.6; 1/100; ISO 200 and edited in lightroom. Please feel free to comment what I can do to improve in all aspects, composition, exposure etc. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Thank you, I've also send an inquiry to Ikelite and they gave me a response, comes down to only strobes with a digital port is compatable with the Ikelite housings without the optical ports. It is not possible to use fiber optic / optical slave only strobe with the housing. Strobes which only have the optical connection is not compatable.
  12. Here is a question I don't seem to be able to find an answer for. To use the Ikelite strobes on a fibre optic cable you use the converter #4401, but what about the other way around? How do you use YS type strobes with an Ikelite TTL housing that doesn't have the option for optic cables, SLR housing? Is there a converter or can you use the same converter to work in reverse? Is there a system available to allow you to use optic cables with a Sea & Sea YS strobes on an Ikelite DSLR housing?
  13. That was truly beautiful. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Have you some pics of the housing and camera body available please, even PM me if you're able. Thanks
  15. My advise, #3, but be smart about it. Myself and I believe many others have made the mistake of going compact and then upgrade to the next and the next and sit with an abundance of stuff you will never be using again and can't get rid off. It is expensive to get started on a decent system but buy smart, something that will sustain you through your learning and beyond. Mirrorless or mid-level SLR.
