I have been using the Backscatter basic version since it came out. Manual pump and no LED or alarm. Very satisfied with it.

In Topic: Dome and housing transportation with planes

01 October 2017 - 12:28 PM

I have my housing and strobes in a roll on camera bag which I place in the overhead. This includes an Aquatica housing, 8 inch dome, macro port, a pair of Ike D-161's, arms and cables.  The bag is a discontinued Akona, but there are similar bags on the market. I have checked this bag on return flights andd it usually gets a TSA inspection slip in the  bag.  


The camera and lenses go into a camera shoulder bag that stows under the seat. The Aquatica viewfinder also goes in the camera bag as I found out quickly that it is to fragile for checked luggage.

In Topic: RAID suggestions

As a retired IT guy I would recommend buying a spare drive for a RAID 5 array. When a drive fails a few years down the road locating an identical replacement can be a problem. If a spare is on the shelf it is a quick and painless fix.

I still love my late 2015 27 inch iMac. Far better OS and software than anything experienced on the Windows side. I use and iPad awat from home and you just can't beat the combination.
