For the last few years, I have seen the Lionfish infestation devastate the fish and ecological systems in the Caribbean.
They were trying to teach sharks and groupers to eat them in the Turks and Caicos. One great solution!
I'm probably expecting too much, but can anyone tell me if they have impacted the fish systems in the Cayman islands? I am so looking forward to a photo shoot there and hope to see the plethora of fish and healthy reef that I had enjoyed a few years back.
GREAT board folks! VERY well done and thanks to all in advance!
I know we are a small exceptional niche group to the multi-billion dollar world of the camera manufacturers. Or, are we?
When a manufacturer decides to build a housing for a particular camera, how many do they build to satisfy demand? How many do they sell?
For,example Ikelite. Say they decide to,build a housing for the new Nikon D5. How many do we think they will sell worldwide? Do they build "some" and then warehouse them waiting for,orders? What about the mass priced mirror less cameras?
Sea and sea....how many of the new YS-D2 strobes will they build and expect to sell?
Hugyfoyt (forgive the spelling) is very small. How many do they build, sell, and warehouse?
Nikon...(just my gear of choice). They have "built" (outsourced) 3 housing for their UW cams and are now dumping their third. The Nikon SB-N10 strobe is the Sea and Sea YS-D2 in a white jacket. How many did,they buy and sell?
I'm just trying to get an idea of the size of the UW photography marketplace and try to understand how,they do,their business.
Where to get this info? Any input would be welcome?
