  1. Excellent condition N85 3.5" Acrylic Wide-Angle Dome Port (36131). I had the bottom shade professionally milled off, so it doesn't act like a shovel, scooping up sand when shooting wide-angle macro in sandy/muck environments. Selling as sold my EM10 system and this wasn't included in the sale. Dome has had minimal use. If you shoot M43 Mirrorless and want to get the best magnification on macro subjects with the 8mm fisheye for eye catching WAM shots this is the best port. Comes complete with neoprene cover and rear cap. This port sells for $488 and then there is the cost of the machining. Selling for $450 / £330 / €390 plus shipping form Thailand that will be approx $10-20
  2. Smooth transaction with @sinetwo, recommended buyer
  3. Would possibly be interested in just the Saga 60mm Port if you sell the others. PM if you're in that situation and want to sell it alone.
  4. Hi Dave, The barrel of the snoot is offset so it can be it can be aligned with the focus light to assist aiming. Though with an offset focus light there is a small difference to where this shows and where the strobe light lands. You soon learn to adjust accordingly, but a strobe with a central focus light is the better option. For the price of the Retra LSD you can get a Backscatter Miniflash & Optical Snoot that is a little easier to use as focuses the beam closer and has central aiming light But the LSD is better if you are trying to shoot more shy subjects as can be attached to a more powerful strobe and it focuses the beam further away. I use both depending on what I'm shooting.
  5. I live in Thailand and luckily we can still dive!
  6. Hi Tim, sorry for the delayed reply, was on a liveaboard trip. Yes the port is still available, and the EXR 33 plus Saga Flip
  7. Dear Alex: The Subal plug and cord just arrived in fine condition, many thanks.  I will now proceed to replace the electric plug and install it in my trusty old housing.  Elias Amador

      Hi Elias, only just seen this message. I hope everything worked out OK and you have a functioning hot-shoe cable now?

      Yes, the ribbon cable had become unsoldered from the hot shoe, so I replaced it and the little red plastic plug. It required a bit of careful soldering using a low power microscope to see what I was doing, as each solder point was quite small.  Everything is together now, and I have learned some useful new repair tricks. 
      Many thanks for the gift, it is much appreciated.  elias amador
