  1. I'm selling my Ikelite Fiber-Optic Converter for DS Substrobes and LED Triggers. I used this to attach a fiber optic sync cable to my Ikelite DS161 Strobe (also for sale) An upgrade to their 4401 Fiber Optic Adapter, Ikelite's Fiber-Optic Converter does everything that the previous model did and is also sensitive enough to work with internal electrical-to-optical LED flash triggers. These triggers are found in Sea & Sea and Nauticam housings, among others. The converter adapts the electrical bulkhead of any Ikelite DS strobe into a fiber-optic port. Updated electronics make this converter capable of accurately reading the LED signals for fast and reliable triggering. Like the original Fiber Optic Adapter, it is also compatible with any system where the camera's built-in flash can be detected by a fiber-optic cable. The converter automatically configures itself for compatibility with both pre-flash and non pre-flash camera modes, so there's no setting of small switches or confusion over number of pre-flashes. Simply turn on your strobe and take one picture to configure. This device is a non-TTL, manual exposure unit capable of supporting a single strobe. It works with Ikelite's DS50, DS51, DS125, DS160, and DS161 Substrobes. The converter features a depth rating of 295'. Converts the electrical bulkhead of any Ikelite DS strobe into a fiber-optic port. Offers all the capabilities and functionality of the earlier 4401 Fiber Optic Adapter. Features heightened sensitivity for use specifically with Sea & Sea, Nauticam, and other housings with internal electrical-to-optical LED flash triggers. These devices translate camera's electrical signals into a series of LED flashes, which are much dimmer than traditional built-in camera flash. Updated electronics make this converter capable of accurately reading the LED signals for fast and reliable triggering. Compatible with any system where the camera's built-in flash can be detected by a fiber-optic cable. Automatically configures itself for compatibility with both pre-flash and non pre-flash camera modes, so there's no setting of small switches or confusion over number of pre-flashes. Simply turn on your strobe and take one picture to configure. Non-TTL, manual exposure device capable of supporting a single strobe. The strobe's output may be adjusted using its built-in manual power settings. Works with Ikelite's DS50, DS51, DS125, DS160, and DS161 Substrobes. Compatible with the following fiber-optic cables: Ikelite 4501, INON Optical D L-type, Sea & Sea 50107 L-type, Olympus PTCB-E02, Nauticam to INON 26211, Nauticam to Sea & Sea 26212. Sale price: $85 USD, Retail Price: $125 USD
  2. I'm selling my Ikelite Standard Coiled TTL Sync Cord with Ikelite bulkhead plug and Ikelite strobe plug for $59 USD - normal retail price $100 USD
  3. I'm selling my Ikelite 1" Double-Ball Arm Extension Mark II with Two Ikelite 1" Standard Ball Clamp Mark II for $115 USD - normal retail is $160 USD
  4. Selling my Ikelite DS161 strobe / video light combo. It comes complete with the smart charger, as well as a 1" Ball Mount Mark II and removable diffuser with protective cap. If you're using a fiber optic sync cable, I'm also selling my Ikelite Fiber-Optic Converter for DS Substrobes and LED Triggers here too. The DS161 features a depth rating of 328'. The DS161 is offered here with an NiMH battery pack, a smart charger with a US/North American plug, and a The strobe has a power rating of 160 watt-sec and a guide number of 38-76' at ISO 100, depending on whether you're underwater or above water. It provides a wide 90° angle of coverage, which is increased to 100° when you add the supplied diffuser for softening the light output. The 4800K color temperature is even warmer than daylight and restores hues that get absorbed underwater, bringing vibrancy and color accuracy back to your images. When combined with a compatible TTL system, the DS161 automatically adjusts brightness to provide ideal TTL flash exposure--whether you're shooting at macro, portrait, or wide-angle focal lengths. Manual exposure mode is also available to give you greater control. The strobe is equipped with an Ikelite ICS-5 bulkhead connector, which is also present on many Ikelite underwater camera housings, and requires a sync cord. Additionally, you can use the optional #4401 Fiber Optic Adapter to convert the bulkhead to a fiber-optic cable port for manual exposure. The NiMH battery pack features 7.2V of output power and a 3300mAh capacity. It provides up to 225 full-power flashes per charge, with a recycle time of 1.5 sec. The bright, concentrated, 5W LED aiming light provides ample illumination for use as a focusing aid or a nighttime dive light. The LED turns off and on when the strobe is fired, keeping your photos free of bright spots. Total selling price for everything is $795 USD - retail price $949

  8. Hi all! Thanks for accepting me in the forum. I have read that a lot of people had troubles with the strobes YS-D2, but I haven't found anybody with my issue. Let's see if somebody can help me. The last two times I had use my underwater set up (Canon G7X, Nauticam Housing NA-G7X and strobe S&S YS-D2) the strobe is shooting always in maximum power, which is very inconvenient for macro. I've checked all the modes and I have the same problem with all of them (except of the Manual with pre-flash). I wonder if it's a problem with the batteries as they are brand new or the power selector. Any ideas what could be wrong? Thank you very much for your attention and replies.
  9. Hi Folks. I was fortunate enough to place third in Intermediate Traditional Macro in this year's Monterey Shootout, and my prize was a brand new in box Ikelite DS161 strobe + battery. Unfortunately, I am not an Ikelite shooter. However, I do want to parlay my winnings into replacing my very very temperamental Sea & Sea YS-D2s (non J). To be clear this is the strobe head + 1 battery together in the box. I will happily part with the strobe+battery for $900 USD shipped to the continental US. I can do PayPal or Venmo. I know I don't have a ton of posts (mostly a lurker) so for vetting purposes my info: My ebay user ID is automaton3. My website is www.drewwilsonphotography.com My Facebook account is http://www.facebook.com/drew.wilson.7798 Please let me know if you have any questions!
  10. Recently I have been diving while using Sea & Sea YS-D2 strobe. After 2 weeks of using the strobe it stopped firing (never flooded the strobe and used enelopes fully charged batteries, btw, I always shoot in manual). The constant light was still functional but the strobe flash just stopped firing. This was on Grand Cayman and my only option was to purchase a display model from Cathy Church shop in Georgetown. The new strobe survived another 3 weeks of photographing but I noticed that the recycle time of it started to increase. Other problem I found on both strobes was that when firing the strobe consecutively 10-15 times the strobe would stop firing and would need to recycle for about 10-15 seconds after which time it would start firing again. This happened on both strobes. Spoke with Sea & Sea today and their tech told me that that was not normal. Anyone had a similar experience? These strobes are $700 a piece and I am afraid they will not last me long time. How do these compare to Inon strobes?
  11. hello! here for sale this YS-D2 used (about 10 dives) with some mark on the body but works perfectly. i am selling because I have now an ikelite ds161 with electrical connetion. original box, diffusers and silicone grease included 450€
  12. Hi, It seems that the enthusiasm for a better/cheaper snoot never runs out. I usually find it hard to point the beam of light on the subject, and even a slow moving one escapes by the time I get it. So I wanted a light guide that will show were snoot actually points to. I tried the 10Bar laser focus and found it unreliable and inaccurate. I did design a version where the laser projected on the same line as the strobe using beam splitter. But the laser was annoying. Then I realized that the same design can work with a strong focus torch. The benefit is that I get to see the whole beam and that it is much brighter than the little red laser dot. Here is the result. It is a modular snoot that can either have a fixed head (at different beam diameters) or a fiber-optic attachment that can be manipulated by hand. An example of a photo made with this snoot. I had 12-50mm (Olympus EM-1) + wet diopter lens (nauticam CMC2). The focus light was on red, and my dive buddy was aiming the optic fiber snoot at individual skeleton shrimps.... Would love to hear your comments and suggestions. The design is uploaded to https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3749151
  13. Looking for an IKELITE Fiber Optic Converter for DS Strobes. Ideally, 3rd gen (Product # 4401.3). Thanks!
  14. Hello, does anyone have experience in building a own snoot with water tubes etc.? I tried to build one and also attached a laser pointer to see where to aim. But I have a problem to connect the plastic tubes with my strobes... Underwater it was falling off very often. Any tip or idea would be helpful! Thanks a lot :-)

  18. Looking for a single Inon Z-240 Type 4 that is in good condition. Send me a PM if you have one you're willing to part with for a price that is fair. I recently noticed that one of mine has a much lower output than the other while shooting a large ball of Jacks. Initially I though one of the two flash tubes might be dead but later I confirmed that is not the case by taking photos of the strobe in set to a low power with my lens stopped all the way down. Not sure what is going on with it because it still works fine but the output is significantly lower than my other Inon Z-240, I am fairly sure this wasn't previously the case as I never noticed it.

  20. Hello, I have just switched to a DSLR system, my setup is a D800E in Nautical Housing with 2 strobe INON S2000 activated by the in-build flash with finer optic cable. I would like to know from someone with similar setup what would be the sync speed I can push the system, has anyone tested at 1/250, 1/320 or above? Second I was wandering if I-TTL mode would work as well as flash exposure compensation, somehow I feel it would be easier to adjust rather than using the small knob of thee strobe. I will be shooting Macro with 105 Micro VR, in your experience is recharging time really bothering in this setup? What alternatives do I have to fire my strobes, and what are the gain ? thank you for your suggestions.
  21. Hoping someone is willing to part with with their Sea and Sea YS 250's. Please let me know. Email is better, I don't get on here often. ralphpace@gmail.com Thanks.
  22. Hello, I am looking into getting into underwater photography. Been doing a lot of research in setting up a rig, decided to go with the RX 100 V for a starter camera. I didn't want to take my D500 underwater without the higher priced housing, and the RX seems more versatile. My main question is about the strobe feature on the Kraken Hydra 3500S+. I was hoping to get some comparison to a strobe like the YS-D2J. I'd imagine the Kraken wouldn't have nearly the features as the YS-D2J but wasn't sure of the differences since I can't find much out about the strobe feature for the kraken. I'd like to get some high quality photos so I would like some good strobes, but figured if I could get a dual purpose light for video or strobe that would be a cheaper starting option. But I'd like to know how well that flash works before I go for that setup. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Kraken Hydra 3500S+ WSRU
  23. Hello, does anyone have experience in combining Inon Z-240 and D-200? Is there a even light or ist there a big difference between the two light sources (if you shoot for example a huge animal like a shark on sandy bottom)? Thanks a lot! Michael
  24. Reading through the forum I found two approach how to avoid backscatter in murky water for WA: extending arms to increase camera-strobe-distance using fairly short arms but pointing the strobes outwards to just feather the object with the edge of the light beam I am still early in my underwater photography journey so I am interested in: What is the preferred method? Is there - besides the setup- any significant difference in the results? I would assume that using long arms is most effective, but if there is no difference I would prefer the more compact setup
  25. Iam selling 1 Seacam Seaflash 150D S6 for Canon. The Flash is in used condition but works with no problem. 1 S6 cable 1 neoprene cover Can be tested in Austria, Graz Price for the flash would be €1300 I would also sell 1 new diffusor for Seaflash 150D for €100 If you are interested please send me a message
