So something like this? http://www.amazon.co...e/dp/B00314DM6QI don't have a Costco membership.

Sorry for (again) resurrecting an old thread, but can some of you say *what* cameras you are putting in the various size bags? I have a mirrorless system with Inon strobes, so not SO big. I'm hoping the 36 can cooler is the right size for me.


In Topic: The Value of Underwater Photo Workshops?

13 May 2015 - 12:44 PM

In October I booked one on one dives and land work with Jeff Mullins out of Tulamben. The cost was a couple hundred per day, but it was invaluable. My photography improved more on that first day than it would have in a year or more of going it alone.  If you can book some one on one attention, I'm sure you'd benefit from it.


In Topic: New Olympus 8mm and PT-EP10?

12 May 2015 - 07:12 AM

Reading the specs it seems as if it is not much larger than the 9-18 mm in diameter and is shorter than the 9-18m at full extension.

 

But if you look at the Olympus UK page for this port, there is also a statement about using this port with other housings:

 

"If you would like to attach the PPO‑EP02 Dome Lens Port to a underwater house with fixed lens port, please contact our support line on 00800 67 10 83 00"


In Topic: RX100 + Meikon. Accessories? Lenses etc.

08 May 2015 - 01:07 AM

I had a Meikon housing for my Canon G15. It did have a 67mm thread on the front, but it was not very good. It was very easy to cross thread a wet lens and only get one turn. Twice I lost a wet lens that was not securely attached. Once I found it, the second time I did not. So be careful. I suppose this advice applies to any wet lens attachment.
