Dive trip to Lake Malawi, Africa...11 days 22 freshwater dives

23 June 2012 - 12:24 AM

Diving adventure to Lake Malawi in Africa. 11 days of dives will begin 9/17/2012 and last till 9/30/12, I will be arriving on the 14th and leaving on the 30th. You can arrive earlier and leave later if you wish.
We will usually do 2 dives a day. Air refills and tanks are provided, but you will need your own BCD/Regs/wetsuit if you plan to SCUBA. Lodging/food/boat/crew will run about $1800...
Flights out of LAX to Lilongwe are running $1600 which is $400-800 less than i have paid the other times i have gone.
We are looking for 3-5 more divers in this great freshwater lake with more than 500 colorful species of cichlids!

Removing sunray battery housings from main housing

03 June 2012 - 04:35 PM

does anybody know how to remove the battery housings of a sunray light system, from the Light and Motion Stingray housing?
Id like to mount them on another type of system, i really like the batteries that they use, and i have plenty from my drills and jigsaws.
Its seems like they should come off, but they feel locked in there, i don't want to damage anything.

D90 upgrade

03 June 2012 - 04:28 PM

Im ready to upgrade my D90 system.
Im going to stick with ikelite housings and nikon cameras.

my question is about the choices...
my 4 choices are D7000, D300s, D3s/d4 and D800.

Are the DX systems of the D7000 and D300s that much of an upgrade over my D90?
If its only a small upgrade, should i just wait till next year when i can afford to purchase the D800 and go FX?

Old strobes as slave/fill

03 June 2012 - 04:17 PM

I have a nikon d90 with ikelite housing.
my strobe is a Ikelite DS 200.
I was wondering if i can use my cheapo ikelite AQ/S strobes as a slave/fill strobe.

I been using them topside as slaves with my aquarium pictures, they work well with that.

I understand that they usuially would have problems with the preflash signal, but wouldn't they just be triggered by the DS200 when it sends out its burst?
