Diving with kids in Caribbean

05 November 2016 - 06:40 PM

After years of traveling to dive destinations as a couple my wife and I are planning to take our kids to Caribbean next April. We have a 13 y.o. girl and 11 y.o. twins. They are all PADI certified and have about 15 dives logged. Do you folks have any recommendations regarding the dive resorts that cater to families? What Caribbean destination, you think provides the best weather conditions consistently in spring? All advice is greatly appreciated.


Nauticam NA-D7000 housing and Nikon D7000 for sale

04 September 2016 - 08:11 PM

Dear all,

Gently used Nauticam NA -D7000 housing and Nikon D7000 for sale. Housing was serviced by Nauticam USA through Backscatter in February of 2016 and has not been underwater since. Not much else to say. Everything works as it should. I will include the charger with the camera and an original Nikon battery. US $1500 OBO +Shipping.


FS: Nauticam housing for Nikon D7000 and camera $1900

10 July 2016 - 08:02 PM

I have Nauticam housing for D-7000 with Nikon D7000. Housing was serviced earlier this year and have not been in the water since. All functions work. Camera body is in good condition. I can include David Busch's D7000 guide in the sale. The camera comes with the original box and charger. I would like $1900 for it + shipping from San Diego. I prefer to sell in US as I am not familiar with the Customs' rules. You are welcome to check the equipment out if you are in or around San Diego. Pics to follow.


Comparing large domes for FX

03 June 2016 - 06:45 AM

I am trying to find the most cost effective way to use my Nikon 16-35 UW with the D810. How does Sea and Sea acrylic fisheye 10in dome fisheye port compare with Aquatica Megadome or Nauticam 230mm? Please help.

The best WA combo for 8in port in FX format

06 March 2016 - 10:41 AM

Dear all!
I know that the topic of wide angle lens' choices for FX has been looked at multiple times on this forum. However, I think I am even more confused than before I started researching the issue. I was hoping that you folks can give me an advice on what is the best WA lens to use on Nikon FX (D810) behind the 8in Aquatica port. I already own Nikon 14mm 2.8D and Nikon 16-35 VR. It seems that no one likes the results of these lenses behind the 8in dome. I am getting ready to switch from DX to FX. Almost certainly will continue to use Nauticam housing and would like to keep my Aquatica ports with adapter. Prefer to stick with the 8in as I already own one and have travel/packing figured out. Currently I use Tokina 10-17 on Nikon D7000 and am happy with the results. I do want to use FX and don't want to use this lens for my new setup. I do not mind buying a different WA lens like Sigma 15 fisheye or Tokina 17mm, but wanted to hear more opinions and see samples (good, or bad).

Thank you very much in advance.
