John, I really appreciate you finding that link. I found it so informative. I'll keep my eye out for future workshops involving Alex Mustard.

Have a great time at Tuwali Dustin. I haven't been there myself but friends who have really enjoyed it. I like PNG diving and have been to Walindi and Tufi resorts and a couple of times to Madang. Going to Lissenung Island this October.

The silver pin/rod at the base of the housing unscrews using the smallest hex key in the set that came with the housing. Took me a while to figure that out! The strap comes with a small bracket with two screws that go into the pre-drilled holes on top.

Choosing lightweight bags to start with is a big advantage, having a bag that weighs almost half your baggage allowance doesn't help. My check-in roller bag weighs around 3kg empty and it is fairly nondescript so doesn't attract unwanted attention. Not sure of its longevity as I have only done two trips so far with this particular bag, but so far so good.


I also pack my various components in padded bags and in different places like Erik, however I take a fold-up soft cooler in my check-in bag to use on dive boats to hold my  camera rig which I assemble at the destination, whether its a live-aboard or a resort.


I appreciate that everyone has their own preferred packing method, but this works for me.

Bit late for me to get your zoom gear for the 12-50 unfortunately. Cheaper than the one I got from Austria. Curious as to what the pins are holding in place?


Hi chaps..


Just to let you know that there is a better and cheaper option available of that 12-50mm gear for the Macro Port 65. You can find them here: http://deepshots.myshopify.com/


PS... yes I make them myself :)
