Don't listen to 'em, Ken! After my experiences...... in  a swimming pool at a dive centre in England. I have only the deepest sympathy.






The leak detector would not have helped in the swimming pool either! So on that basis, only one out of three incidents might have been detected.

In Topic: Locline. Does it always creak?

Back on the original topic, my Loclines always creaked especially at the end of the dive when I tidied everything up. My dive buddies always knew it was time to get back on board!


Having used both flexible and fixed arms/clamps, both have their place. Loclines are especially useful when you need fast adjustment to awkward positions e.g. on macro shots when the positioning of the clamps can jam the movement that you are looking for on the strobes.

I had my Nauticam housing upgraded by Alex Tattersall at Nauticam UK to the D810 at back end of last year and am very happy with it.


But still have the old problem that it is not the quality of camera in front of you that makes the great photographs, its the idiot behind it that needs to improve!


All the best

I suspect that you have an acrylic housing. I used to have the same problem with my Olympus housing.


While using a dry atmosphere (air conditioning) was one solution this was not always possible i.e on a live aboard so I used two other solutions.


1 Use a small pack of desiccant in the housing making sure that it does not interfere with any of the controls.


2 Place a small piece of aluminium foil inside the housing which attracts the moisture 

In Topic: Whites dry suit

04 August 2014 - 12:19 AM



I have been using a Whites drysuit for the last 5 or 6 years. Agree it is a great suit but just be careful self donning and zip closing, you may recall I had a problem on the Froach Ban and left the zip about 2mm open resulting in a wet start and aborted dive.


I use the Whites in cool waters or winter i.e water temperature less than 15 degC and in the summer I use my Azdry drysuit which fits me better with less undergarments.


All the best
