Inon strobe knobs

15 April 2014 - 04:49 AM

I was diving on a 3-day out of Santa Barbara and saw someone with aftermarket knobs for his Inon strobes.  The knobs had flats (as opposed to being round) making it way easier to turn them while wearing thick gloves.  Anyone have a link to where I might purchase some?





DJI Phantom GoPro helicopter

09 April 2014 - 08:24 AM

Hello all,


I am interested in buying the latest GoPro aerial system and was wondering if the tool of choice for the Hero 3+ black is the DJI Phantom Quad Copter and gimbal system like this one: http://www.bhphotovi...ml/prm/alsVwDtl


I currently have the GoPro and want to make sure I am closing all the gaps of performance by purchasing all the needed accessories and main unit up front. For example, are the batteries individual AA where I can use my own or are they some sort of proprietary pack?


In your experience (those who have used this system or something similar) what are your warnings, recommendations, tricks of the trade etc?


Any help is appreciated.

My Xmas & New Year trip to Fiji

27 March 2014 - 05:23 AM

Last December and into January I spent three weeks in Fiji.  This was a little different trip than staying at a group dive resort.  We stayed at a non-diving resort on an island just off the coast of Taveuni. They only had four bures. Very private. No crowds.  All diving was arranged through Taveuni Divers, who had to make a special trip to our island every day to pick me and my wife up.  The original "custom" booking was for three private boat dives a day and a simple shore dive from our resort (less than spectacular, but doable as a photographer).  The manager of the resort who also worked with Taveuni Divers quit just before we left on our trip and everything fell apart at that point. So I did have to rattle a few cages to get "some" of what I originally booked.  In any event the resort management from Rainbow Reef Resorts and Muriel at Taveuni Divers did a fantastic job of making some of my trip align with the original plan.  


Here are a few topside shots and underwater images I like. These four were shot with a Zen mini dome, Tokina 10-14. I love that set up.



Brand new still in box Sea & Sea YS-01 strobe

31 January 2014 - 04:51 PM

I purchased a YS-01 strobe as a back up to a second system I took to Fiji with me but it never came out of its box.  At this point I no longer need it but would like to sell it here before listing it on Ebay.  No pics because it is still sealed in the original box.  I paid $429 and since it is still new in box I will let it go for $375. Buyer pays for shipping.  Prefer to sell in the US only at this time. Price is not flexible. Email me if you're interested.
