Posted by KirkD on 11 March 2013 - 06:48 PM

Maybe difficult to pick up that housing for what your willing to pay, especially since the 7D replacement isnt out yet. Someone just posted this housing for $2300. Chevk it out here:



#327039 New Housing "Airlock" Vacuum from Backscatter

Posted by KirkD on 02 March 2013 - 08:21 PM

What is the benefit to an electronic version?

The electronic version would also give you an indicator light that would blink a cetain color if the pressure was in a certain range and would change colors when it fell out of that range, indicating that you have a leak. The benefit of such system would be that you would always know the status of your seals. Whereas with the manual system, you pump it up and then rehook the gauge at a specific time (i.e. 30 minutes or later) and see if you have lost any pressure.


#325782 Sea & Sea vs Ikelite

Posted by KirkD on 06 February 2013 - 07:05 PM

I see more Aquatica and Nauticam housings out there than anything else. I live in the US and dive locally and in the Caribbean. When I do my tech diving trips, I see Aquatica exclusively. Im not saying that I dont see Ikelite or Sea & Sea out there though. I knw Ikelite has a history of great customer service. I personally have Aquatica and their customer service is outstanding as well.

Since you travel a lot, you can get your hands on some housings if you visit Backscatter in Monterey, CA or Reef Photo in Fort Lauderdale.

#324467 HELP!! New desktop and LR catalog import - file names, no pics

Ok, this is a simple fix.. I assume that your folders are greyed out and have a ? Mark over it. Right click on the folder and choose the option to "find missing folder" and then you just have to go through and find the images. Another option would be to assign your hard drive the same letter as what you had on the previous laptop, i.e. move it from H back to J. In windows 7, hit the windows icon on the lower left side and type in "disk management" in the search bar and press enter. This will bring up that dialog box. Look for your hard drive i.e. letter H and right click and choose "change drive letter and path". Click change again and on the right side of the dialog box you will see drive letter H with a drop down arrow, click on it and select J. That will reassign your hard drive to J and you may not have to go through and find each and every folder to point lightroom to.

Hope this answers your question
