Well the housing arrived today, after sitting a month in customs. As it was a demo that I bought, it arrived, just to test my patience, which is limited to begin with, without the eyepiece diopter. Anyone know which magnification I require so I can test this humoungous :shock: piece of equipment?

Hey Marli

Are you the evil-doer who bought the A100 + 9 inch dome from Helix Photo's eBay store about a month ago?? If so, you saved me about $1400 and some quick talking with my wife. Thanks (I think :? ).

I'll be very interested to hear your comments on it, as I still have one in my sights.
Why would I take a perfectly good camera underwater??

Yup, that was I. I wish I'd bought it sooner, as it was up for some time, but when I went to buy a new one, everyone, including Aquatica, was out, and too busy making all those darn digital bodies :lol: to make me one soon.
So, once I get the bits and pieces working, I hope to enjoy it.

The housing should have come with a free gym membership. I am sure it must be a huge change for you going from the Nik to the housing. I will be going through that soon as my little A5000 housing will seem small compared to the new A300.

Look forward to seeing your shots with the new set-up.
