oh-go on then...

For info, the kit was from Ryan at UWCP in Kansas. The total cost was some £300 cheaper than a weel known UK site (even when VAT and import duty were added.

I got the dome port for the kit lens (18-55mm) plus the manual EV controller plus TTL lead (when it is replaced as they sent the wrong one)

Fitting the camera is easy and the housing comes with a gear sleeve to adjust the lens while it is fitted in the housing. All knobs/buttons/levers marry up perfectly with the camera.

All I need to do now is get the damn thing wet - next weekend, maybe in Vivian or cape (ugh)

Its a bit heavier than I thought and comes with a lead weight (wont be needed with the strobe fitted)

In all a lovely bit of kit.

So you can still use the strobe with the manual controller?

It's a sexy piece of kit and buying from the US is a real no-brainer when it comes to prices.

No - cant use the controller until I get the TTL lead which will effectively become a power cord to the controller which then powers the strobe
