Would you find someone through here?


In Topic: Double or single ball arm?

16 January 2016 - 10:19 PM

Contrary to others it would seem... I'm shooting with a single arm segment each side. I don't currently do much CFWA. I haven't found a single arm segment to be too limiting and I shoot wide angle in caves. I love having less clamps to manipulate - I find they can be a real pain.


Finally, depending on your strobes, carrying the camera to and from the boat is awkward with only one arm per side, while two arms allow you to tuck them in close and compact.


I don't find this to be the case. I can tuck my strobes in quite nicely with a single arm segment.

Actually, after a very long wait the money did eventually end up in my bank account. Certainly wasn't worth the $ for the effort required to extract it from the magazine. I would highly recommend against dealing with Asian Diver Magazine.

In Topic: Sealux extension ring for Canon 14mm lens on 5dII

I've heard back from Jurgen at Sealux. There is an error in the Sealux port list. The recommendation for the EF 14mm f/2,8L USM lens should be DOM 200 + ZR 28 extension ring.

In Topic: Sea & Sea / Inon reliability - opinions

I have 4 Inon Z240 strobes. Never had a flood and one of these strobes has been going strong since 2008 and getting plenty of use.

I've never experienced any twisting or pinching of the orings. Keep your orings lightly greased and they work the way intended.
