How can you dive without a camera? :P

Prayers for Rick and his wife from KY!

I have never had the pleasure to dive with either, but have heard nothing but praises for him.


In Topic: Dilemma - D7000 now or wait for D300s successor

Not to damped you new camera lust (I suffer from the same), the D300 is a splendid camera. Do you need video? Other than video, what beyond the D300 do you need?

The Nauticam D7000 housing is significantly smaller & lighter than the D300/D300s housings which is huge in this age of travel.

The Tamrac Adventure 8 is a bag not a backpack so I'm not sure which one you have. I've just ordered a LowePro Vertex 300 AW. What would be really handy to know is how thick (front to back) a backpack can you squeeze into the overhead bins - I might have to take a tape measure with me next time I fly.

It is a Tamrac CyberPack 8 (I knew it had an 8 in the name).

I have found that a backpack carry-on is less likely to be scrutinized than a wheeled carry-on. I recently switched from a Tamrac 692 (roller) to a Tamrac Adventure 8 (I believe). I can carry everything to shoot one lens w/ 2 strobes.

When catching Liat in San Juan, they weighed most carry-ons but did not look twice at my backpack....which was HEAVY!
