In Topic: Nikon D7000 Underwater

Oh Boi
You do know that you'll save maybe 1.5 kg by going to non-pro bodies (based on 1 body, 1 housing, 1 charger with 2 batteries)? You do save on bulk as well but the weight savings is minimal especially if you don't carry the cameras in your cabin luggage. I'm afraid it's like leaving out your 3 red shirts and 2 yellow shirts. :)

hey, 1.5 kg would be a saving of a tad over 24000 rupiah one way. For round trip Manado-Sorong, that's equavalent to 2 cans of diet cokes and a few candies. The saving is piling up very quickly with D7000 :) Actually, I am just tired of lugging around Pro body/bigger housing but did not think that D300s/D700 was worth hazzle to upgrade over D2X but D7000 is promising.

I am very impressed (even if Drew is not :) ).
I think this is going to be a good camera to replace my D2X after having to pay 500,000 rupiahs on Lion Air each way from Manado to Sorong recently :)
I am looking forward to a lighter traveling day!

I plan another quick dive trip in a week, I think my friend may come along. I can't remember if he mounted his strobe arm on the housing or the handles. I will see if I can get some feel for his housing underwater as if Nikon vaporware becomes a reality, Nauticam would be a housing that I am very interested in.

A friend of mine also recently got his 7D housing recently and on his first dive trip with it, said he likes it very much but complain that the handles are not stiff enough. He said that the housing tends to oscillate a bit in his hands due to the handles. Is that your experience?
Finish on it is top notch and with my next housing for whatever camera, I am seriously switching to it from my current Subal setup.

Just wear a red shirt and threaten to bring the gang to the office, that should get them thinking! :)

Khun Boi, still dreaming of vaporware? :lol:

Its the dream of Nikon vaporware that made my D2X lasted me all these 5 years :)
Canon just does not have enough vaporware to make me wait and I surely will be broke from
keeping up with buying Canon's newest toy!

Gotta love a company that make you wait and wait some more before taking your money away :D
Unfortunately the red shirt has been kept off Silom and Nik Thailand pretty effectively so far so I can't
use that threat!
