  1. With new units selling for $630 shipped with a warranty, your price of $566 plus shipping may be putting buyers off. Just an FYI.
  2. I've started using my work 3d printer to create custom mount parts for my rig. Now I'm looking at getting one for home to mess around with.
  3. Likely that's a Pin 1 and Pin 6 identifier, which is common. If the mating connector is just a strip of pins, you may be able to measure their pin size and pitch, and find a compatible connector/terminal setup.
  4. Look for any tiny markings or writing molded into the connector. I used to work for Molex, and all our connectors had the part number molded into them, but it can be REALLY tiny.
  5. DEMA is November 13-16, so I would imagine they would release any new product then.
  6. I'm VERY interested in just the housing, camera, and vacuum port. Already have a tray, strobes, and cables. Are you willing to separate the system?
  7. You're likely right, I would use it on a flip holder with a macro lens. Well, since the bayonet mount is out, I'm now looking at the divervision magnetic mounting system. http://www.divervision.com/howshot-m67-magnetic-lens-mount-MG-M67.html?search=magnetic This setup would be: M52 lens port -> M52 to M67 step up ring -> M67 magnetic lens mount -> lens (either M67 native close up, or UWL-04 on a M67 to M52 step down ring). Any issues with this and the UWL-04? Can't find a ton of reviews of this setup, but it looks like it would get me the quick connect capability of the bayonet mount without hampering image quality? My only concern is lens security (not sure how secure these magnets actually are).
  8. Any experience with the recsea 52mm flip lenses? Either the 2 or 3 lens? trying to figure out the best option for macro
  9. Next system will likely be mirror less without wet lenses so it’s a stopgap for now
  10. That was my biggest concern about how the adapters would effect my UWL-04. Does it basically put too much water between the stock port and the rear of the wide lens? is it something that zooming in slightly could solve? I’d like to add a close up lens but I don’t want to replace my wide lens at this point. System is 8 years old and will likely get replaced in the next 2 so I’m hoping to add something cheaply and if I can move away from the thread mount, I’d like to. also have been considering the sea life super macro lens since it’s native M52, but it’s hard to find reviews for.
  11. I have no idea about how to even start calculating the nodal point of my current setup, and how it would change if I were to move to AD mount. Way above my knowledge level, and I lack significant information about the stackup of the all the adapters.
  12. Hoping someone here might have some experience in what I'm thinking about doing before I purchase anything. I have a Canon S95 in a Fisheye/FIX housing, FIX UWL-04 fisheye lens, dual YS-110a's, and SOLA 500 (see pic here: https://imgur.com/a/Sn7UioM). I've been looking to add a close up lens to my setup, and am looking at the INON UCL165. I also would like to convert from the M52 mount to a bayonet mount due to threaded mounts being a pain underwater. I am looking at purchasing the following: - Housing conversion - M52 to AD adapter: http://www.divervision.com/deeproof-ad-lens-adapter-for-m52-thread-housings-ADF-M52.html?search=ADF-M52 - Wide angle conversion - UWL-04 into M52->M67 step up ring into M67 to AD adapter http://www.divervision.com/10bar-m67-thread-adapter-for-inon-ad-mount-base-adm-f67?search=ADM-F67 - INON UCL-156AD close up lens - 2x AD lens holders In theory, all of this should work, but I'm unsure if I'm missing something regarding lens interference, vignetting, etc, especially with the wide angle lens. Anyone do something similar or have any feedback on my plan?
