Hi Luiz, there trimming this and that, streamlining this, repositionning that, blah, blah, blah, i'm impatient to have the thing but I understand the tibetian monk patience needed for those project. Which is why I never was or will be in charge of production :D It is very near final that much I know, I have two good friend, who ordered this housing, they are going down to Antartica for the next 18 months to spend the winter lock in ice in a sailboat and they are leaving at the end of August and that is fairly soon :D That is going to be one hell of a testing facillity! :)

Cheers

P.S. I bought a D2h for 1,500.00 Can. +/- 1200 U.S. with a few hundred shots on it, that will just tickle me until I sell some organ for the X file version. darn that focus is fast.

Jean, remember that the D2x has even better focus than the D2h :) Ok, not by much. Alex

Alex, you son of a gun <_< , you know married peoples can't just buy something for themselves unless they purchase something of greater value for their spouses, still you rub my nose into it, that's mean !, well right now I don't have ten thousand bucks to blow away. I'm hoping eventually that my wife, for all her qualities, won't notice the subtle shift fron a H to an X, I mean they do look like the same camera even an H an a X can look the same from a distance, really honey you should check your reading glass prescription you are confusing your letters :)

Cheers you mean bloke !

Jean,
I think you'll be pleasantly suprised with your new D2h. I originally purchased mine to shoot sports but now I use it for all my topside shooting. The film-like quality of the images is remarkable. I'm looking forward to putting mine in an Aquatica D2 and seeing what it can do underwater. Do you think they'll be available by mid October.

Jean, don't you own/manage/work ?! at a large camera store?

Don't you think using a little white out to that D2H of yours and swapping it with a D2X would work?! :):)
