Yes, this may be possible, send it to Ikelite, if there is room they are able to add another control/knob or push-pin to the existing housing. Also if you have knobs you don't use and find them in the way they have a special plug that replaces an in the way knob. Goo-luck!

I cant get the strobe to fire. i cant even fire it for test i have full power and the lamp runs but nit the strobe. any sugestions?


This can be many things like the cord is bad, maybe a bit of corrosion on one of the ends or your hot-shoe is not connected all the way on the camera? Send back to Ikelite, if it's bad they will fix or replace.

I have purchased an Ikelite AF 35 strobe to use with my Sony DSC-TX1 camera and underwater housing. Even with the strobe set to the lowest setting, the photos I take with the camera set to 'housing on' are...


akdenny, have an af35 myself and know from experience the issue is very likely to be the way you have the block out for the cameras flash. if you block it by having the tape inside the housing it confuses the af35 to fire at a higher setting. from what i can gather it senses the strength of the camera flash and adjusts. I get the best results with the blockout on the camera supplied diffuser, stops the flash camera going forward and gives plenty of light to get the af35 to fire right. to blockout i just use some black tape , fabric tape seems to stick well.
you will still need to set the auto level setting.
hope it works out, i find it a great flash. and the guys at ikelite very very helpful.

Sounds like an O-Ring problem, you need to use a bit of silicon when closing and O-Ring should be removed and cleaned after every dive. If the flash isn't working, you will have to send it in for service. Here is the address;

If it won't focus, won't trip the shutter, and sometimes won't turn off, the shutter release switch is defective and needs to be replaced. This is not user replaceable, and will cost about $125 at a repair shop.

Settings on my Nikon D-50


The Ikelite S100 is for a Canon Elph camera. I don't think you're going to get your D50 to work with it. If you have a 6805.1, which is designed for that model Nikon, your Owner's Manual is here:

Did you buy the housing used? Did someone tell you it would work with your camera?
