Oh, I definitely would have to get the engraved nameplate option. I hate it when all those $12,000 camera/housing rigs get mixed up in the rinse bucket and you can't work out which of the bright red aluminium monsters is yours ;)
Why would I take a perfectly good camera underwater??

That's if you could get the big-ass mother into a bucket to rinse ;)

I also think it'll need wheels to make it practical on land and thrusters underwater, a bit like a jet-wheelbarrow :P

I pitty the liveaboard that gets our group all at once. My guess is the ocean will be full of Smart-a__es when they pitch us and our gear overboard. Starting with the Brits.

;)

Sorry for being off topic in this thread. :P

Imagine that Bob, a housing resembling a brick outhouse with a 500mm macro port ;)
It would make Craig's set-up look like an MMII :D I reckon it would need balast tanks :P

Uh oh. Now it's getting personal! ;)


Hmmm.

With these huge housings and cameras, it seems impossible to get the lens down to the same level as the thing you are shooting (assuming you're not on a wall. :P. It's hard enough with the current crop of non-huge-battery-grip camera housings!

I don't know what this topic evolved into, but I like it ;)
Not only because nobody suggested to toss Germans overboard yet... :P

One of the things I like about the Nexus is the small size below the port.

Got my port extensions today. I can now use the 1.4x and 2.0x teleconverters with the 105mm. Works great. Also got my zoom rings for the 12-24 and 24-85 micro. All set for the next trip.
I love it when a plan comes together.

I dunno Bob, at the rate I am gaining weight lately I may need the extra poundage, and I am running out of room on my weight belt.... ;)

Now there is an idea I caould really use!!!!! and probably will need at the rate I have been going. B) :P

As for the divorce...you need to meet your wife diving to avoid that. My first wife was not met diving.

As for dunking Germans in Manado...My grandparents were German so hopefully that does not default me into the German category. I have enough trouble representing the Canadian contingent.
