Gorgeous! Where did you encounter the whale?


The trips you describe must represent a lot of photos in the hard drive. I'm interested what your ratio of shots to keepers looks like as you start to edit. Are you working through chronologically or skimming your favourites?

In Topic: Question for those with Nauticam moisture alarm and vacuum leak detector

They do go flat eventually but you get some warning. When you turn it on it will flash blue - red - blue instead of just blue, and that's the warning sign. Eventually it gives up on blue and just flashes red on start up. I've got another 10 dives at the end of a trip out of the battery after it starting flashing blue/red.


It would be really nice if there was a way to turn the sensor on and off external to the housing, so I could achieve vacuum, turn it off, leave the housing for a couple days, then turn it back on and check still vacuumed. Like when you're going for a dive but it's cancelled for weather but you're going to try again tomorrow so don't want to break the housing down. Or when you're doing some stupid cave dive that has you underground for a week but only diving for 20 minutes three times.

I agree it would be nice to see more feedback from those being used in the wild. My understanding is that they are still fairly backordered and maybe Nauticam hasn't been able to keep up with demand. Being on backorder is enough time to change your mind and buy something else!


I would desperately like one for the caves but can't justify the cost. In aussie dollars with the extension ring and new (even cheap new) lens, it's close to $7k. I guess maybe if I sold my Canon 14mm and domes that would make a dent in the price but then I'd be shooting with the WACP on every dive, all the time. If it was to be my main wide angle rig I'd like to hear from other people using it day to day for all their diving, not just special trips or special dives.

Cut the heat shrink off the wire leading to the two pin sensor and see if you have corrosion in there bridging the gap.
