my name is Kate... my happy place is underwater. I live in Sydney, Australia, have been diving for five years. Fortunately, there is a lot of wonderful diving in Sydney however, I do love to travel to the warmer waters above Australia, Sulawesi and Raja Ampat having been highlights so far.
I have been shooting underwater for about 4 years starting out with a borrowed rig, then buying a second hand Canon G12 in a Patima housing, ( which I still have but don't use because the housing is too heavy for me) then on to a Nikon D7200 and Nauticam rig.... and thought that I had what I needed... I would love a mirrorless...
I too have had the misfortune of a failing Sea and Sea Y2D2, out of warranty, of course.
I still suffer gear envy/lust and am confident that one day I will win the lottery and be able to do all the travel and photography I want!
I have 'expensive' friends who continually 'suggest' me other things to add to my set-up, I am currently looking for 20mm and 40mm extension rings with a lock so to tweak my existing rig.
I enjoy browsing these pages and am so happy to have found the reason as to why I have been unable to post anything!
