  1. I have an Aquatica housing for a Nikon D7000 and have Ikelite D125's.  My single strobe cord from my Ikelite housing for my D200 worked with the strobes so I think I have the Ikelite connection on my Aquatica housing.  I would like a Dual cord or an optical trigger that would fire off of my other strobe.

  2. Ya...I paid a 1000 for a housing, big flat port and camera body. Camera is not working on video and I suspect it will cost more to get it worked on than to buy another. Have you ever known anyone to use a Sigma 70 macro? Someone is offering a new one at a really good deal. Same person offering the vacuum system with electronics at low price. My leak detector seems to be working fine

  3. I really just need the port extension ring Aquatica 48456 right now. Any other places to look for a used one? The camera is setup for the Ikelite bulkheads but the parts to make them work on the arms were removed by the previous owner when he switched housing, It came with a long macro flat port but not sure if its the one for the 105. Are there marking that id it on the ports?


    Triggerfish thanks for taking the time to answer some of my questions. The fellow I got the used 8 inch dome, shade and cover from suggested Alex Mustards book which I have found to be usefull.

  4. I am looking for a used port to attach to an 8 inch dome I am getting for an Aquatica housing for a D7000. I am using a Tokina 10-17 lens. I also need to get the adapter to use with Ikelite arms with D160 strobes. Not sure on that part yet. I bought the housing used and it came with a large port that a movie and tv production photographer used for his lens on set as a sound muffle. My question is do I need a port for it if if I end up buying a 105 Nikon macro lens or will the same port I am trying to get work with it?


    Other questions I have is it has a moisture alarm installed but no vacuum system. Is it worth putting one on and do I have to change the electronics if I do. Do after market ones work for the housing?



    Some have suggested sending the housing back to aquatica for an overhaul. According the previous own he only used it underwater 5 or six times and switch camera several years ago and its been setting in his office. I have heard horror stories about going back and forth to Canada. so is it best to send it back to the factory or is there someone state side that can do this work? And I was wondering how much it runs?


    The previous user used it in fresh water as he is a cave diver like me.

  5. Bought a Aquatic housing from a set photographer who had been using it as a sound muffle. He had a large flat port on it. I need to get a dome port for a 10-17 Tonkina Nikon D7000 that will work. Not sure if I need port extentions. Also need the handle setup so it can take Ikelite arms and strobes. I was wired for them. I mostly will do cave diving so not sure if Glass is the right kind of dome since scratches cannot be fixed. I don't have micro lens but guessing this one is the size of a 105 but not positive. I am in the USA. I have used a 8 inch port before on a D200 setup.

  6. My name is Tom Hundley and I am an underwater photographer. I love all types of photography but mostly do Cave Photography. I am trained in OW to Divemaster and in technical Full Cave Advanced Trimix. I don't have a ton of experience and am always willing to learn. Started with a Olympus 5050 with Ikelte case I moved to a D200 in an Ikelite Housing with an 8 inch dome with a Tokina 10-17. I have moved to a new to me Nikon D7000 with a Aquatica housing with a flat port. The camera was used a set sound block and has a flat port that was used on set. I need to get a dome port for it and a port that can work with the Tokina 10-17.
