In Topic: Zen 4" dome port cover

01 August 2013 - 12:48 AM

4" dome port covers are quite easy to find. ScubaCam has 'generic' unbranded neoprene port covers that will fit nicely the Zen dome. If not the online stores will have them too.

Thanks for the info, that's useful to know. i dislike being cold too but what you're saying makes a lot of sense.


In Topic: Leak Sentinel from Vivid Housings

I have a V2 unit for my Nauticam 7D housing & a V3 unit for my 5DMkIII housing & they both work great. When I wrote to Miso about the non-captive o-ring in the V2 unit cap, he sent me a new V3 cap without any fuss. The 'after-sales' service from Miso has been fantastic. I'm a 1st-time user of these vacuum check systems & Miso has been really patient & prompt with all my questions.

My better half & I have a trip booked next month to Tonga as well. It's our 1st time there to try & catch the humpbacks & I've been browsing the forums to find more info about what to expect in Tonga & how the whale watching is conducted.

 

What are water temps like in Aug? We're trying to decide what thermal protection is needed, perhaps 5mm wetsuits or maybe even a drysuit if water temps are in the low-20s. I've read from the whale-watching sites that water temps can go as low as 21ºC in Aug.

 

Thanks in advance!


In Topic: Any feedback from those using NA-5DMarkIII ?

18 March 2013 - 12:17 AM

I just received the Nauticam MkII prototype strobe trigger and can confirm that, topside and on the 5D3, it fires my YS-250s perfectly. I do need to confirm this with a dive but it looks good to go ;-)

 

Hi Tim, I presume you've had a chance to try out the Nauticam strobe trigger prototype by now. How well do they work underwater? Seems like Nauticam is very quiet on this up till now while some of us are anxiously waiting for this!
