In Topic: FS: TWO Complete Canon 7D Camera/Housings & 4 YS-250 Strobes

I am interested in either of the 45 degree viewfinders, and the 60mm macro.  Any chance you would separate out?  As it so happens, I will be in Bali for a few days later this week, on a stopover on the way to a Raja Ampat liveaboard.  Shoot me a PM and let me know.  Thanks!

Thanks for the input so far.  One factor I didn't quite make clear is that I already own the 100mm macro, so adding the 60mm means buying it and appropriate port extensions.  So my question is more whether this is worth it (i.e., if I've never shot with the 60mm will I miss it)?

Very sad.  The press is having a field day jumping to wild unsupported (and unlikely) conclusions that he was attacked.   Sigh.....

That article is infuriating.  It jumps to a completely unsupported conclusion that he was attacked, and I'm pretty sure the statement that AUTHORITIES determined he was attacked by a shark is completely false (unless Grind TV is an authority).  Here is a more accurate story: http://www.outsideon...In-Bahamas.html

 

 

For now, it’s hard to say what happened, but the most immediate possibility is that Petty got disoriented or accidentally swam into a swift current and was swept away before anybody noticed he was gone.

“It was a night dive, so getting lost is an option, as is unintentionally swimming out to the Gulf Stream and being caught in the current,” says Andy Dehart, shark adviser for the Discovery Channel and longtime Tiger Beach diver. Dehart also thinks a medical emergency, such as a heart attack, is a possibility.

Do you have a photo of how you mounted the Orcalight Seawolf 2260 to your DSLR rig?
