In Topic: D7000 Ikelite, buttons on camera not working while at depth

20 December 2014 - 01:37 PM

Hi Bill,

 

Thanks for the reply. I checked all the buttons at the time, each time it happened, but couldn't find an obvious problem. That housing had to be replaced by Ikelite when it developed problems with the flash circuits, it just died one day, so it may have just been a very dud housing.

 

Cheers,

 

Nigel

Hi Guys,

 

I have had several Ikelite housing and have always been happy with them, but had one that wouldn't funcition in depths beyond 35m. I could press the shutter release, but couldn't change any camera settings. This happened each time I went to depth with this housing, and as soon as I got above 35m everything worked fine. I have used my other Ikelite housings down to 50m without an issue, every button and dial worked perfectly. I contacted Ikelite and they told me that they had never heard of this before, but it now sounds like I am not the only one to experience this issue.

 

Cheers,

In Topic: ALERT: New photo restrictions at Crystal River Three Sisters

Adam,

 

Thanks for the information, we will just have to work with whatever restrictions they put in place, just hope that it benefits the manatees, but it doesn't really sound like it.

 

Cheers,

When would these restrictions come into effect? As we will be there mid January next year.

In Topic: Favorite dive-sites in New South Wales?

Hi Moreton,

 

You should have some great dives.

 

For dive operators both the charter boats at Narooma are excellent - Narooma Charters and Island Charters.

 

For Sydney it just depends on what shop is closest to where you are staying.

 

Forster has several good operators but would recommended Ron Hunter at Dive Forster.

 

Hope this helps.

 

Cheers,

 

Nigel
