In Topic: Universal VidDSRL housing

Sure, I wouldn't turn on the wifi. I saw somewhere a universal housing, but it's price and weight was more than double of the Leo.


Ehm Ehm :)

Actually the Leo Wi "works" only with the Wi Fi...

 I had several buddies with a Leo II & II housings. 

These hounsing are (were) spartan and rigged at the same time. My buddy in seven years changed Nikon D100, D200, D300 and D7100. The housing it's always the same. He upgraded just the control board for less than 200USD. 


Regardless of liking or not Easydive housing, still after a lot of years it's the only company who went for this route. It's really strange because remote control interface for Canon and Nikon camera are well known. It's a mystery to me.



For the Wi-Fi version my only fear would be camera battery duration in this mode....

In Topic: Travelling with full SLR set up in hand luggage, Any issues?

06 October 2015 - 02:00 PM

I am used to travel with my photo gear as follows:

1 Loewepro Vortex 300 Photo backpack as carry-on containing:

Weight is 18-20 Kilos


as checked baggage inside a torn suitcase containing:Weight 23-30 Kilos


triplecheck that your flights allow more than 8 kilo carry-on as here in Europe 8 kilo and less than IATA  carry-on size limit becomes more and more normal


Basically you are prepared to pay a lot of money for extra baggage  :crazy:


As you wrote it's normal that the maximum carry-on weight allowed is 5/8 kg here in Europe.

The worst company is Blue Panorama in Egypt: 5 kg carry on and 15 kg checked. you cannot buy extra weight in advance.

About 110g at a guess


Really? Is it aluminium or steel?
