The housing had a minor flood event (completely operator fault) a couple of years ago. The housing was serviced by Ikelite with strobe electronics replaced. The housing was also upgraded to a four port lock system at the same time. The housing has since been serviced (last month) where the front polycarbonate case has been completely replaced along with the housing locks.

This was my first UW setup and has been fantastic. Simple to use and reliable with plenty of features to snap some great shots.

Asking AUD$1300.00 plus shipping+insurance

Tablet PC for Viewing and Extra Storage

17 January 2012 - 11:07 PM

I've been trawling through the forums looking for thoughts on a tablet for primarily viewing and storing pictures when OS. There are a few threads but not recent and nothing about the Android tablets available nor the Samsung specifically.

I usually go away for a week to ten days at a time and so far have found a single 16GB SD card to be adequate. I pack a 4GB spare as well because I have it. All pics are taken in RAW only using a Canon EOS 450/xSi.

So I've been looking very closely at the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1. I realise that there is no dedicated USB port however available is a USB and SD card connection kit. My thoughts are to make use of the connection kit allowing for more storage whilst away. I can't see myself going for longer than what I have been to date however I am thinking of the 5dmkII as my next camera body with CF card and larger files.

A laptop is out of the question due weight, encumbrance and size. I will not consider the iPad either.

I have checked and confirmed (by trialling on my Galaxy S2 phone) that there are a couple of Android apps available that will view the RAW files.

Even considering my current needs I think that the 64GB version of the tablet will still be limiting in time. I was hoping for the ability to continue to make use of the USB converter and be able to run an external drive or thumb drive to increase capacity. From my investigations so far it looks like that is possible but confirmation from people having used the tablet would be good.

I should also say that I'm not too interested in being able to perform any post processing just the two requirements I spoke about above.

Any thoughts/experiences appreciated. Particularly if the SD converter has any problems getting the files to the tablet.
