Nauticam buoyancy arms filled with water

19 June 2016 - 04:03 AM

Hi, I have a problem: I had one 60 x 250mm Nauticam that was not tight and was filled after a dive with water - ok, replaced by dealer. Half a year later I had the exact same problem with the new one.....

Has anybody a similar experience? Was I too deep with 50m? I have the impression that the problem area is the base of the ball...

Transport of heavy equipment from hotel to diving center

09 April 2016 - 07:11 AM

I'm really getting old....

When I have to transport my camera equipment (Nauticam D750 housing, Nikon D750, buoyancy arms, 2 YS-D2) with a transport rope between the arms over the shoulder, sooner or later the 10kg are very heavy.......how to you do that....I already thought about a mini trolley or something like that....any advice?

Regards, Sascha

TTL with D750 and YS-D2

28 March 2016 - 02:19 AM

Happy Easter holidays altogether!


I have a Problem, where I need your advice: I put an artificial test scenario together in my livingroom to test the effect of diffusers. Flashes and camera were set to TTL, connection via fibre.


So having shot several photos with  exact identical settings (all manual, ISO fixed) available light and position, the results differ dramatically - sometimes too dark, sometimes very bright....can this be TTL problems? Do I need something like a pre flash? I switched off red eye effect, but nothing more....


Any advice?


Regards, Sascha
