Ikelite Nikon Coolpix 4800 housing

Ikelite have announced a new miniversion of their heavy duty thick wall housings that is virtually indestructible, has 200 feet depth capabilities, and is priced like thin wall housings with limited depth rating.

This Nikon digital camera provides excellent results at a very realistic price. Drop into the housing for a fun and satisfying experience. All camera functions are accessible.

The housing is moulded of corrosion free clear polycarbonate and operates safely to 200 feet. The flash built into the camera operates fine in the housing and provides very good photos.

An optional DS series strobe placed farther from the lens improves the photographs by reducing the illumination of particles in the water.

Optional #9523.31 Tray with Release Handle is required to attach optional SubStrobes.

Optional strobes do not operate TTL with these cameras, but the Manual Controller provides 10 power settings with the DS-50 or DS-125 digital SubStrobes.

The lens port allows attaching the optional UWL-100 wide angle lenses produced by Inon and Epoque. The port accepts the 67mm threads of these conversion lenses which can be attached and removed when underwater.

Subtronic Mini Digital

The Subtronic Mini Digital is a compact high performance strobe developed for Camera Controlled Flash (CCF) exposure with digital cameras. It is suitable for use with digital cameras encased in clear housings as it depends upon the slave sensor being able to see the cameras own flash firing. The Subtronic CCF technology is extremely accurate as it uses the cameras own light meter to determine correct exposure. There is a calibration feature to ensure the CCF is matched to the camera you are using. The Mini also provides five

manual power settings for difficult subjects that can confuse your camera resulting in poor exposures or for creative lighting control.

An LED modelling lamp is built in. These helps you to confirm proper strobe placement and illuminates your subject at night or when working in shadow, such as under an overhang. www.subtronic.de

Subal Canon 20D, available with the new GS viewfinder.

Following the success of the 10D, the 20D is the latest offering from Canon, thought by many to be the market leaders in digital photography. The 20D is an 8 megapixel DSLR, offering the handling and build quailty many would expect from a pro level camera.

The housing features a total of 18 controls, the ergonomic positioning gives comfortable access to the cameras functions, in the form of push buttons, levers, and rotary dials. Many other features which are synonymous with Subal have been carried over to the C20.

The camera is mounted on a saddle providing precise positioning inside the housing - installation errors are nearly impossible. A large O-ring provides maximum security as does the trustworthy Subal Quick Lock latching system, which makes it virtually impossible to close the lid if the O- ring is not in its groove. It also featues two Nikonos V flash connectors, but can also be fitted with Subtronic S6 sockets, giving TTL with a Canon flash gun such as the 500 EX.

The rear viewing window is shaded by the housing back, making the LCD screen bright and clear.

The housing is machined from a solid block of aluminium making it hard wearing but light, weighing in at just over two kilograms. Around two thirds the weight of some polycarbonate housings.

Sigma 10-20mm lens

The 10 - 20 mm F4.0 - F5.6 is an interesting super wide-angle lens which would provide 15 - 30 mm equiv. on a 1.5 FOV crop camera (such as the Nikon D70).

This lens also features Sigma's HSM (HyperSonic Motor) for high speed silent focusing with manual focus override.

New Mistral twinhose

Aqualung have announced a new twin hose regulator. The first commercially available sport diving regulators used two hoses - one to feed air to the diver, the other to remove exhaled air. Both hoses meet at a valve at the divers back. But by the early 1970's twin hose regulators had largely given way to single hose models.

Veteran underwater photographers often favoured twin hose regulators because they could make shy subjects much more approachable. This is because exhaled air leaves from behind the divers head. The bubbles are also better dissipated by the valve casing . Basically, the fish doesen't get buffetted as much as when you exhale through a normal regulator mouthpiece.

The new regulator is called the Mistral in honour of the original Mistral series of twin hose regulators which were renowned worldwide in the early days of the sport. The 21st century model is available in a clamp or DIN fittings and has take offs for an octopus and direct feeds. There's even a special edition for collectors! www.aqualung.co.uk

Two Nexus Digital Dome Ports

Nexus have introduced two compact ports specifically designed for use with Nikon's 12 - 24mm wide angle zoom and 10.5mm fisheye digital lenses. Both ports use glass optics and feature aluminium bodies. The 12 - 24mm port is about 125mm in diameter, barely wider than the Nexus housing port mount itself. It is only 70mm long. A metal lens shade is optional.

The 10.5mm port is even slimmer at 110mm in width and just 55mm in length. It has a built in four leaf hood to help protect the optic and minimise flare.

Both ports are exceptionally small considering the lenses that they accommodate. Nexus include a front protective cap and a spare O ring as standard.
