Bloody awesome.

When was it sent??

Ikelite and hybid bulkhead??

I can't wait. I have been without a housing for a few weeks as I sold my Aquatica AD90 to a mate. This has been killing me as we have been getting alot of Manta Ray and leopard Shark action here as well as heaps of Nudibranchs.

The housing will be getting alot of action once it arrives.

Thanks again Jean and the staff at Aquatica.

Mark, you need one or two of those valium_10284_5__big__.jpg :lol:

Kidding aside, it was sent minutes after the picture of the box was taken was taken. Blake one of the owner actually drove the boxes to the FEDEX office to make sure it did not stand still for the week end.

The housing is as you ordered from Scubapix, Ikelite on one side and optic on the other ;)

Thanks Mark for being a great fan of the product, it makes our work pleasant knowing its appreciated, now if I could only manage a way to wriggle my way to Byron bay to grab a few nudie's with you, that be splendid :D

Hi Jean,

Thanks again for providing a personal service which you dont often see these days. I am sure you can find an excuse to get down this neck of the wood and I be happy to show you around.

Just got a call from Peter Mooney (Scubapixs, Cairns) who is the Australian Distributor of Aquatica that my Aquatica AD7000 serial number 8 has landed in Cairns, Australia and is on its way by Air express to me.

Hopefully tomorrow in will be in my hands.

Thanks goes to Jean, Jean and Aquatica staff to ship this housing super quick from the other side of the world.

This long awaited package arrive today. I quickly unpacked it and read the manual and had a little play with it. I then put it all together for a couple of dives tomorrow here at Byron Bay. Even more excited now as I was told two large Manta's and lots of Leopards are around and the vis is improving.

Here are few photos of Aquatica AD7000 serial 008. She now called Deedee (Thai for good good) as all my housings get a ladies name.

The Ikelite and Hybrid bulkheads together. Room to move if need be.

First impression of the housing is that has alot more engineering than my Aquatica AD90. The way the camera slides in and locks, the way the zoom gear attaches to the housing gears. The new port locking system. The two types of bulkheads which now allows for optical firing. Button lay out more suited to divers than a simple button lineup with the camera.

I would like to thank Jean and the staff at Aquatica for the personalised service I have received in getting this housing. I would also like to thank Peter Mooney from Scubapixs Cairns (Australian Distributor for Aquatica) for bending over backwards getting the housing to me.

Hopefully I can post some pics from tomorrows dive so I can show you what it can do.

I am just a few hours from heading to Kona with Keri on the Aggressor boat (along with Stan Waterman), we will put the AD7000 and AN-5 housings through their pace for a week as well :lol: so that means no web connections for 10 days (just in case some of you think I am ignoring you), I will catch up with you guy's ASAP.

One think for sure, given the weather outside my window... you can bet I will be apreciative of the weather over there.
