In Topic: Nikon D90 strobe not firing

Hey Mark,
Before you throw it against the wall, (turns out that doesn't work either) make sure your hot shoe connection is solid. Both to the camera and to the bulkhead fitting.

Good luck,
Steve

Not wanting to sound obvious but the hot shoe connector from the bulkhead is in the correct way. On my canon it slides in both ways but will only fire when placed in one direction. Just a thought as this has happened to me also.

In Topic: Best fit camera case fortravelling with Aquatica system

04 February 2011 - 06:39 PM

I just bought a Low Pro Runner 450AW. It's described as airline friendly. I managed to get a Aquatica 5dMK11 housing, macro port with extension , 4 lenses (15mm, 24mm L, sigma 50mm,100mm L) 2x ds125's ,viewfinder ,arms and chargers + 15"MBP. All this weighs over 15kg's though and I still can't get the megadome in. So i've put that in a Low Pro nova 200 AW. If i do get pulled then I can get about 7-8kg's in both and a little less with the laptop in it 's own bag. I just get the felling of being like a pack horse lugging all these bags about. I've checked gear in before but on a couple of occasions bags have gone missing ( clothes not camera gear thank god) so it's not a risk worth taking for me. I did look at the Kata bumblee 220. It looks like an awesome bag but was just over the airline size's that i've been told.

In Topic: London to Sorong

I used Air Asia over the Xmas period from Perth to London and would highly recommend them. They were almost $4500 cheaper than Emirates or Singapore for 3 adults and a child. The attendants were very quick , efficient and polite. Just make sure you buy as much luggage allowance as you can as they will charge out of London for every gram over. They also do an extra 15kgs for 15 pounds for sporting goods which I overheard at check in. Well worth the money!!

In Topic: Anyone been to Xmas Island?

17 January 2011 - 06:30 AM

Are you sure? I sent someone to them in 2010 (or was it 2009) and they were still there. Why don't you try getting to the Rowley Shoals? It's pretty spectacular and apparently hasn't been hit as much by fishermen.

There web site is still there but there was no reply to emails and the xmas island tourist board say they no longer operate? The Rowley Shoals are only be dived from October to December. I'm looking to go in the next month. Thanks for the advice though.
