In Topic: Looking for full time photo/video pro

20 June 2007 - 09:34 AM

We are currently looking for a full time video/photo pro to work at the Manta Ray Bay Hotel in Yap, Micronesia. Duties include shooting daily videos, renting cameras, downloading photos and teaching classes.

For more details please send me a PM here.


Full time video/photo pro to work at the Manta Ray Bay Hotel in Yap, Micronesia. Sounds fun! Video/photo pro - land or underwater? Shooting daily videos, yes ... land or uw? Basically manning the dive shop which offer photographic/video services at the hotel or is it just a photo/video studio? Downloading photos and teaching classes, basic photography and video? Or underwater?

How long is the contract for? Sounds interesting, Mike.

We come as a package, my partner and I. She's a PADI OWSI and CMAS Instructor as well while I'm working on my DM License. She's had over 500 dives, I've already done over 250 dives. We have an underwater website up-pogopus.com. We both do underwatervideo and photography, I also do land as well if not better. I specialize in portraiture. I can teach and train. I've had 25 years of experience in the hotel and restaurant business. We also have a number of equipments and experienced in handling different cameras from the point and shoot film to digital to video. We both come equipped with MacBook Pros and very, very geeky when it comes to computers and multimedia. :D

In Topic: Need Advice, Nikon D200 VS D80

14 June 2007 - 05:49 AM

ahhh ...yes ... digital Nikonos ... if only. I still shoot with my trusty Nikonos V and love it.

But back to the story at hand. I am also antsy to upgrade from my D100 to something (ie: D80 or D200). The "weather proofing" sounds like a great idea - but thats 3 stories I've heard where the D100/D200s are flooded and Nikon replies with an "unrepairable" ... my story included. Last fall, I flooded my D100 housing. Nikon were able to repair my 17-35mm f/2.8 lens but the estimate for the D100 was "Uneconomical to Repair" (Nikon words!!!). Fortunately I had a backup D100 so my topside photo taking wasnt a total loss. But I wonder (outloud) whether the weather proofing on the D200 actually add any value to a flooded camera?.

Anyone have stories where a flooded D100/D200 was repaired by Nikon?

I've flooded not just one Nikon SLR, but three and all of them came back unrepairable. And guys, thanks for the advices, I appreciate it very much. If I get an ikelite casing, would my other ports be still usable with the digital set-up?

In Topic: WTB Aquatica A100 for Nikon F100

Dear Nordic,

I noticed your request for an Aquatica A100 for a Nikon F100. It happens to be that I have a Subal N10 housing for a F100 for sale. Subal are also very good housings, as you probably know.

See my topic from the 28th of May, 'Subal N10 underwaterhousing (and more)'.

Greetings,

Diverosa.

p.s. If your not interested, good luck with your quest.


Hi! I'm also looking for an underwatercasing for my D100. How much are you selling your Subai and what's included?
