FYI: New Port Body for Ike 8" Dome and Canon 10-22mm EF-S

Recommended Posts

Ikelite has informed me that they now have a new port body for their 8" dome for use with the Canon 10-22mm .... the #0076.22. My dome is now currently at Ikelite for installation of the new port body and pressure testing.

Do you mean #5510.22?

 

When I got my port and body combo, it was a #5510.80.

 

Does anyone know which current body matches the body that came with the #5510.80?

 

I did get confirmation that the body on the #5510.80 was rated to 60 metres.

 

Cheers,

Thanks, but I'm talking #5510.80 not .81/.82 or .83. (unless my supplier has the number wrong on the invoice?)

No, the 5510.22 is what is listed on their website, the one I listed is new and not on the website yet ... the number is as I wrote it: 0076.22

 

Contact brett@ikelite.com for more info.

 

Aloha!

Seems like a real company would mark some identification on the different ports............?

 

Well now you've finally done it. :) I'm very impressed with the quality of the new 8" dome system. And on my new 5510.22 port body next to the new "60m rating" label is... wait for it...:

 

"#5510.22" clearly stamped on the body.

 

Good Show Ike!

Ah, the 5510.80 was the Aquatica dome. I ordered mine when Ikelite were moving to their own, so I received the new dome but the old part number on my invoice from the supplier.

 

Whats interesting is that it looks like my body is the #5510.16 and it has been working fine with the 10-22! That said ordering #0076.22 today as the 10-22 will go to 60m and will use the #5510.16 for the EF-S 18-55.

You mean that you need the 5510.22.... If you have the new all Ikelite dome then you need the 5510.22.

 

I originally had the 5510.16 for my 12-24mm, as it was the first one recommended for that lens a year ago. I think the 5510.22 will just be a little better dome position for the 12-24mm and 10-22mm. It looks like Ikelite has done some fine tuning.

 

I wonder if Ikelite is still planning on flat ports for this new system? They took the statement off their new website for the 8" dome port?

 

I'm hanging on to my old 105mm lens and port to see what they are planning for the 105mm vr.
