  1. I made a mistake, i've not the 5510.22 but the 5510.16. Sorry.
  2. Hi, I have a Nikon D700 + Sigma 15 FE 2.8 DX. For split shot I still use the big 8" but this not my favorite type of photo (I never manage do remove all water droplet). For underwater I use the 5" precision dome (Prec-5in-Nik-ike) + Ikelite 5510.11 but it has a little bit of vignetting (you see the sunshade on some corners) I spoke with Bill who made a new sun shade. It was better but not enough and after that He made a new dome call Prec-5in-Sho-ike but I don't try it. It's not easy to do splishot with it but not impossible. Today, I mainly use the Prec-5in-Nik-ike + 5510.22 + Sigma 15 + Kenko 1.4. I have tried the 6" but I find it not good. Prec-5in-Nik-ike + Sigma 15 :
  3. Finaly find the reason. Some springs became rusty in the ikelite hotshoe. After cleaning everything working. Hope this help.
  4. Hi, my setup give me headache! One Ikelite D700. Two DS 51 One cord for one strobe. One cord for two strobe. (It use to work before.) Ikelite module set to DS51. The hot shoe is fully seated. The lightning symbol show into the D700 screen indicator. The AA battery are ok. One strobe with the appropriate cord in TTL : Fire once and then nothing. The other strobe with the appropriate cord in TTL : Fire once and then nothing. Two strobes with the appropriate cord both on TLL : Fire once and then nothing. I've switch off the camera : nothing I've switch the strobes : Fire once and then nothing. What's wrong?
  5. Hi, Have a similar issue on one dive. Everything was ok at the depth of 6m. But when I reached 20m, the screen don't bring up anymore, but shutter works and I can take picture. I understood the problem after the dive : the LCD screen protector was on the body!!! (Ikelite D700.)
  6. Find it : http://wetpixel.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=29986 I've never remove the shade. I'm affraid of straching it on the rock. It's a huge piece. Maybe the simpliest way is to cut out the corner of the shade?
  7. Hi, black corner with sigma 15 + D700 in Ikelite depend on focus distance! Sometime there is no black corner, sometime there is. We has dicsuss this with Alex Mustard (he have the same problem with subal) but I can't find the topic. I've purchass the precision dome 5 inch by Underwater camera stuff, I will try it for black corner
  8. I've choosen the one made by Underwater camera stuff : Have to test in real underwaterworld
  9. Hello! there is two Zen minidome for Ikelite. One for Tokina : DP-100-IT One for Canon : DP-100-IC Maybe somebody have made a test with a nikon full frame D700 with Sigma 15"? Any help will be greatly appreciated! Thank you.
  10. Fletcher, Nice Wa shot! Do you have a CFWA shot to show? Thank you Thank you Bill! I will make some dry test on land to show how close I can get with the TC 1.4. Sigma, also, have a close focus.
  11. Hi Bill, I've read your Link. Very usefull. Thank you. I'm sorry for my english, what is "backing plate" and wich photo is? I've another question, how close I can get? Alex can fill the frame with a Urchin with the Zen (4"). Is it possible with your 5" dome? Thank a lot! JS.
  12. Hi, Thank you Bill & Sean! Does somebody have tried with D700? I will read your link
  13. Hi, Actually my setup is : D700 + Sigma 15mm FE + Ikelite housing with big dome (8"). I love CFWA. Wich setup could work with my FF camera in Ikelite? I've read "Thoughts on Mini Domes" By A. Mustard. Alex said he have some problem with the sigma 15 and his Subal D700. So, Zend Dp-100 could be a good solution? Maybe I need to go back to the DX? Thanks a lot!
