  1. Hello , i m intrested, what will be the price for only the housing ? shipping to Belgium .... my email gery@akanta.be
  2. http://www.ikelite.com/web_pages/sync_cord_d1x.html Sync Cords for Digital SLR Cameras in Non Ikelite Housings Nikonos protocol strobes do not operate TTL with most of the new digital cameras. These cameras may lock-up completely when sensing a standard strobe. These special 2-conductor sync cords allow our SubStrobes to operate in manual mode and provide fractional powers when used with a non-Ikelite housing. These cords should be used for most digital camera installations in non-Ikelite camera housings with Nikonos bulkheads: Nexus, Seacam, Aquatica, Sea & Sea, Subal, et al. The Manual Controller can be utilized in conjunction with these sync cords to provide 10 power settings in half-stop increments with any DS model SubStrobe. Please note that 5-conductor #4104.6 and #4104.62 sync cords look similar, but should not be connected to non-TTL digital systems. These cords should only be used to connect Ikelite TTL SubStrobes with Nikonos IV & V systems, film cameras in non-Ikelite housings, or compatible digital SLR cameras used with non-Ikelite TTL adapters & housings. Use of Ikelite TTL adapters with compatible non-Ikelite digital SLR systems requires #4103.51 and #4103.52 digital sync cords identifiable with their blue band. I think this is the problem , old cables and websites ......
  3. From the factory Hugyfot i had some help , in the think work. So it wasn t the housing, i have no ttl , so ..... this night i was looking for a solution , using my one strobe cord. And i found out that the strobe himself was working fine. I saw a big difference between 1/8 1/4 1/2 and full power, so trobes were working fine to. It could only be the dual cord from ikelite and YES , i have the wrong one. NO TTL means a dual cord with BLUE marks on it. i never needed , used all the power, except last weekend, i was playing with a 105 mm macro lens, 2x converter and diop +4 in dark water ..... so my need for light was high. I m happy i found it , hope , if somebody else has the same problem, this can help :-) greetz Gery
  4. thx the housing is hugyfot housing, no ttl module inside , ....... greetz Gery
  5. good morning, thx for the answer , but, i dont think the problem is in the strobes, the buttons are correct , it is just as they don t receve the correct question for power....... could it be , i m ussing a twin connection .... starting from one connection and than split to two strobes ? that the cable is not good ? Or is in the housing..... i m not using a ttl module , i just want all the power witch is in the strobes .... greetz Gery
  6. Hello , for a longer time i use 2 x ds125 strobes with my cam a nikon d80 in a hugyfot housing. when i put the strobes on full, they give less light than when i put them on 1/2 power. i can't find a solution , so i hope you can help me best greetings Gery
  7. hello, I just have a new lens , the nikkor 35 mm f 2.0 for my D80. I hope to use it for close wide angle shots , are there other members who alreade have some experience with this lens ? tips always welkom , thanks meening is to have a lens for close pictures without beeing a macro lens or a wide angle lens. In dutch waters we have poor vis. and needs for a lot of light. greetings
  8. HELLO Is it ment that the shade is rotating ???? or should it stick to the same place even when the cam is taking pictures in horizontal or vertical possition. thanks fotoduiker
  9. good evening Last sunday i was looking for a solution with the sigma 50 mm and a tamron 2x converter In Holland most off the time , the vis. is very poor, so we need a close working distance for macro. The sigma works great but.......... I also have a tamron 90 mm. The test last weekend, seaslugs with the 50 mm and converter , nice shots but not as sharp as I wanted. Tonight playing with my cam , i used the tamron 90 mm and a diopter + 1 , I have the same working distance but I think the pictures are sharper. Any one else testing the 50 mm and 2 x converter ?????? greetings Fotoduiker
  10. Hey, Thanks for the answers . The problem is solved, I had to put my D80 Int Flash on Manual, was on TTL. I took some pics today , realy bad vis. iso 100 f22 1/125 and good pictures . So i m happpppy now greetings Fotoduiker
  11. Hello, Think I found it , the problem, the flash mode was on TTL now i put in on M and full flash. Think I lost most strobe power in the preflash. More news afther the weekend best greetings fotoduiker
  12. hello, I think i m asking to much from my gear ....... I love macro, when I take pictures at this moment , settings ds125 ttl Nikon D80 50 mm lens iso 100 1/60 f22 my macro s are dark , not normal i think , or m I asking to much from this trobe and should I get a new one ;-( ds200 ???????? help please ???? greetings from Belgium yes I use the diffuser .......
  13. Hello, I have the same problem, and I think now , I know why. Last weekend , testshooting for my diving trip to France , a friend told me , TTL is smart. It looks how much light is needed and than tell the strobe how much to fire...... The DS125 has also a focus light. When I start shooting without focus light the pictures seems a lot better .... So I think , if you put your subject in the spotlight , the camera says he dont need that much light ??? Is this making sense ???? Or just wrong thinking ????? Greetings from Belgium Fotoduiker
  14. Hey, too dutch ??? I think i m going for the 90 mm tamron, now i take a lot of pics with the 50 mm , but sometimes I have to come to close to a fish, to have a full frame picture. 70 mm sigma is close to the 50 mm sigma i already have, so the tamrom is good i think. Like Udo says the 105 vr is ussless in Dutch water.... I have 90 % of my dives in Holland so.... thanks for the help and advice. Best greetings Gery www.freewebs.com/fotoduiker
  15. Hoi Thanks for the advice, will the 50 mm fit into the same port with a TC 1.4 ?? to close focus will give some problems bringing light to the object i think. Groetjes / greetings Gery
  16. Nice review , Intresting , I will go for the 105 vr , soon or late ..... Most of the time for traveling , with bad vissibility I think I prefer the 50 mm sigma. But I like macro a lot, so , it will be a nice lense to work with. greetings Gery
  17. I have a Nikon D80 and love to take macro shots. I already have a Sigma 50 mm macro lens, but i would like to have something stronger , hahahahaha. Tamron 90 mm sigma 105 mm nikon 105 mm vr ? witch one is best for taking macro shots in bad conditions. Dutch and Belgium waters...... thanks for the help Best greetings Fotoduiker Gery
  18. Hello, I used to take pictures with a olympus c5060. Today a new world opend for my, i have now a Nikon D80 in a ikelite housing. First lens to use, the 18-70 in a dome port. The shop give me also a diopter with it, +4. I used it , today , and have some nice results , but also questions. Why need a diopter in a dome port, and I don t need in a flat port....... Do I always use it in a dome ???? or only with a zoom lens ? Thanks for helping me out. Best greetings/regards, Fotoduiker.
  19. I asked Ikelite about a 45° viewfinder, and had responce they where serieus working on it........ this was tree weeks ago, hope the have soon a good alternative..... I saw on Boot 2007 the sealux, the uk and the Bs Kinetics viewfinders also Hugyfot, there is a big difference between all of those viewfinders. try them out before buying
