Diving in Egypt for seasoned South-East Asia diver

18 September 2012 - 01:51 AM

I’m considering going on a last minute package holiday to Hurgada in Egypt.
I have mainly done my diving in Malaysa (Sipadan), most places in the Philippines and Lembeh. Did also Similan Islands in Thailand, but never been so disappointed regarding things to see and number of divers. So put in another way if Egypt is on same level as Thailand I’m in doubt about going – just to give an indication of what I want. But the main purpose is to check out new diving gear and my new Panasonic GX1 with a Nauticam housing. I know its possible to go for 2-3 days liveaboard tirps also, any been on this trips?

So how is it at this time of the year in Red Sea? Any thoughts and advice are welcome.

does a Nikon 35mm f1.8G DX fit to Aquatica AD7000 housing?

03 May 2012 - 10:05 AM

I'm in the process to purchase a housing for my Nikon D7000. I want to use a Nikon 35mm 1.8G DX lens, but is that possible?
On a dive trip to Malapacua, Philippines I meet a semi pro photographer who used the 35mm lens to a lot of his shark pictures. He had his camera in a sea and sea housing but I'm interested in using a Aquatica AD7000. On the lens chart 4 from Auqatica there is nothing about the Nikon 35mm 1.8 lens, but it could probably fit behind a dome?? The reason I ask is I'm not sure they list up all kind of lenses on the marked in the charts. This is the case with sea and sea, they haven't listed this lens in their chart but I know positive it can be used.
