In Topic: WTB complete UW photo setup - micro 4/3 or compact

I too have a Canon S90 plus Fisheye housing for sale.  I can add macro and wide angle adaptors to sweeten the deal.  See the Classifieds for listing


In Topic: Florida Manatee Locations Other Than Crystal River

You might also see manatees in the West Palm Beach power plant outflow in Jan?  WPB is about 1.5 hours north of Miami.  Plenty of dive shops/boats in Riveria Beach and on Singer Island.  A quick and easy dive without freezing in Crystal River waters.

 

Jupiter is farther north.

In Topic: Advice needed for Olympus EPL3 - which underwater wide angle lens?

02 April 2014 - 01:45 PM

I have the Oly 9-18 and Zen-Pen on my PT-EP03 housing and find it to be an excellent combination.  I have done from close-up to CFWA with it, though I prefer the later.

Flat ports are not could for distance or wide angle in most cases one would need an adaptor but there is still a flat lens in the light path~


In Topic: Which Eneloops to use with ys-110a...2000mAh or 2500mAh?

13 March 2014 - 10:44 AM

It is not possible to burn a strobe with the wrong batteries as the delivered voltage is the same

What changes is the capacity. I use Ansmann 2500 mAh, eneloop X are also available at same capacity

The energiser batteries trickster mentions are 2300 mAh

Generally the more mAh the better however not always declared values correspond to real values

The INON manual says which battey types can be used, starting with Eneloops and equivalent "next generation" type NIMH,  other (good quality) NIMH, akalines and lithium.  then goes on to talk about high temperature, and voltage lost over time plus discharge rate.  I have successfully used Eneloops 2100 mah and lithiums non-rechargeable.
