Olympus TG4 Set Up

12 October 2018 - 10:47 AM

Hello,

I have decided to updgrade my camera set up and there am selling the set up I have for an Olympus TG4.   This set up is under two years old.  I live in a landlocked state and only go on dive trips twice a year.   Neither the camera or housing has ever flooded.   See below for the package.   Price is $500.00 plus shipping costs.

 

1.   Olympus TG4 and Olympus case.

2.  Olympus PT-056 housing and case

3.  Sealife dual tray with flexible arms

4.  Seadragon Universal Flash Strobe (#SL963)

 

 

 


Strobe Recommendation for Lumix LX10

24 September 2018 - 06:55 PM

I am researching strobe options for a Panasonic Lumix LX10 with a nauticam housing.    I have not shot before with strobes (only video lights even for stills) and would greatly appreciate your recommendations.   A dealer has suggested the Sea & Sea YS-D2J Underwater DS-TTL Strobe.   Your thoughts on this recommendation would also be helpful.    Thanks,


Recommendations for Advancing My Photo Gear - Panasonic LX10

19 September 2018 - 10:38 AM

Hello, I am a diver with 3 years experience and 160 dives.   I typically dive in the Coral Triangle, with Indonesia and the Solomons being my top dive destinations.  I LOVE underwater still and video work.   My current gear is a GoPro Hero 6 and Olympus TG4.   I am looking to upgrade my gear and ideally I would like to have one set up for still and video.   I know that having a large set up is not for me.   After doing considerable research I am considering the Panasonic LX10 to replace the TG4 and Hero6.    I am thinking about the Nauticam housing and then purchasing a macro and wide angle lens to mount to the housing.   My question for you experts is whether the LX10 with the two additional lenses will give me that much better photos/video to justify the cost.   I am also interested in any recommendations for strobes for the LX10 and whether it is advisable to purchase the vacuum systems (which almost cost as much as the camera!).    I appreciate your thoughts, insights, and recommendations.

PNG: Tawali versus Walindi/Febrina

28 November 2017 - 09:42 AM

I am planning a trip to PNG in November 2018.   I am trying to decide between Tawali or Walindi or the Febrina out of Walindi.   I am wondering if anyone has recently traveled to these locations or been on the Febrina?   If so, I am very interested in hearing your thoughts/recommendations about the resorts, quality of the dive operations, etc.   Thank you.
