Dolphin hunt sags amid mercury fears

30 January 2008 - 03:43 PM

as a health care professional as well as a diver, this is good news both as a conservation issue as well as to publicize a public health concern.


this may be a good approach against the shark fin industry as well.

Leak indicator on a Subal -- HELP!

22 April 2007 - 10:33 PM

I'm in the Philippines right now.

3rd dive ever with a Subal D200. The leak indicator light started blinking half way during the dive.
The camera is ok. The housing looks ok. But I can't seem to get the leak indicator light to stop blinking.
I have removed the battery. Dried it both with compressed air as well as air dried. Put the battery back in, it still blinks! The circuit board looks ok. No brown stuff coming from it.

Do I need to replace the circuit? I normally would send it back, but this is the first day diving for a two wk trip.

Please Help! I could dive without the battery in, but then i lose the benefit of knowing when i have a leak.
I had pressure tested the housing yesterday with no camera. The 1st dive this AM was with the same setup with no leak. I didn't make any changes or adjustment before the 2nd dive. Luckily it was a slow leak, but still....

Subal 17-55 lens help

19 April 2007 - 03:11 PM

I'm trying to put a zoom gear on the Nikon 17-55. I can get it on the rubbery portion of the lens, but I can't get the zoom dial on the housing to engage. Looks like I will need to push the zoom gear a little further in. I worked on this for awhile, and it won't budge. Any suggestions?

D200 vs. Fuji S5

03 April 2007 - 01:29 PM

I am shooting a D200 in a Subal Housing.

I am trying to decide which (another D200 or a S5) to purchase as a backup camera.
The second camera will be used for topside.

Another consideration, if I do get a S5, which camera do i use for uw and topside.

Any recommendations?
