How do I change autofocus points from nine to twenty-one

In the manual from page 62 and on, you see how to set. You need the 25585492-ntsnzel2saiuiwmt1tdol4on-2-0.png and the 25585492-ntsnzel2saiuiwmt1tdol4on-2-2.png With the AF-area in the middle setting (Dynamic area AF) you can select 9, 21 , 51 focus points or 51 point 3D tracking. The manual is still online for free here: User Manual D300 Nikon Knowledgebase

Have a Ikelite ( Octopus) housing that I bought for my Cannon 20D in 2006. Now I have a Cannon 60D. The housing works for still photos, but not for video. Can it be modified to work with my new cam

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!

Tried my new Ikelite AF35

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;Ikelite50 W 33rd St. Indianapolis, IN 46208317-923-4523

I cant get the strobe to fire. i cant even fire it

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.Ikelite50 W 33rd St.Indianapolis, IN 46208317-923-4523

I can't get my Ikelite DS 161 apart to charge it.

DS51 TTL Manual

Ikelite CamerasUploaded on Jul 22, 2013


I have purchased an Ikelite

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.

How is the strobe activated (ikelite A35)

It works from the flas on your camera. It will only sync to your camera as along as the ixus does have no pre flash feature.
