Making Adjustments to Ikelite Housing Control Length [VIDEO]

Our direct-drive controls are famous for reliability, serviceability, and function. Small variations in cameras and lenses can create minor fit differences when installed in a housing. These differences can typically be made up for by making micro-adjustments to the housing’s control knobs. When done correctly, adjustments can be completed in seconds and do not compromise the factory seal of the housing.

Mike Rabideau explains when and how to adjust controls for the perfect fit to your camera and lens.
