Sea & Sea sync cords - different metals available?

22 March 2017 - 09:21 AM

I've been having issues with corrosion of my Sea & Sea sync cords where they thread into my housing. I seem to have 2 different cords in my collection (different metals for the screw fittings). One corrodes badly, the other is okay. I'd like to buy more cords of the type that don't corrode, but I'm told that they aren't sold anymore. Does anyone have experience with this?
This photo shows the cord that's working for me (the tick) and the one that isn't (the cross).

Who shares on Instagram?

I'm interested in following some more underwater photographers on Instagram. Do you share your photos on Instagram? What underwater photographers do you follow?


You're welcome to follow me, or not. It's totally up to you! :-)


Is this Instagram account stealing YOUR photos?

There are a lot of familiar images on this Instagram account. Maybe they are there legitimately, but I'm suspicious.




Not many photo credits in there...

What is the depth rating on Sealux housings

25 November 2016 - 12:20 PM

Does anyone know the official rated depth for Sealux housings? I have a housing for the Canon 5D Mark II. I bought the housing second hand and haven't been able to locate any notes, or online, giving an official depth rating. I could email Sealux but they don't always respond very quickly and I thought someone on here might be able to point me in the right direction.


Thanks for your help!

Media Drum World

Has anyone received email approaches from Media Drum World? I received an email that looked very generic, like a bulk send, so I ignored it. They followed up with a second email that looks a bit more human. Just wondering if it's a time waster.

I contacted you to explore whether you might be interested in working together on a photo-project.

Can you please let me know your thoughts?
