In Topic: Flotation for E-M1 mk ii

02 April 2017 - 09:26 AM

It was with the 170mm Zen dome. I'd say about 2.25# or so would be good. I also used the Stix float collar with the Zen dome and 7-14 as there's lots of room to mount it on the port adapter. It gives about 1.5 lbs of flotation.

I shot it last week. For the most part I shot with 1 set of our medium float rings that have about 1.75# of flotation, which is a bit heavy. OK with the 8mm. I did use 2x that and found it almost too much.

Here's the link to the TSA requirements.

Basically, spare Lith-ion batteries must be carried in carry on with the terminals protected. Batteries installed in devices don't count. There's no limitations on nimh batteries.

 

I plan to print this out and carry it along.


In Topic: Nikon Comparison D500 vs D7200

03 March 2017 - 12:39 PM

Cameras tend to be the cheapest part of an uw system to a large degree. As Alex said, the overall percentage to step it up to the D500 is fairly small.

 

The D500 is much faster, and has faster AF, especially for action and low-light with a host of other electronic improvements, besides a better sensor.

 

The other financial reality is that you are buying the latest technology and your resale later on is also going to be much higher (and easier to sell). You'll end up recouping much of the difference then.

 

Thanks,

Jack
