In Topic: Ikelite SD125 - flooded?

28 May 2017 - 08:35 AM

Its needs to be sent to Ikelite for service . I had a 161 battery flood at Wakatobi last march-they replaced that and serviced the strobe head. Yours took a hit and needs to be serviced.

They will look at it and give you a quote -so if you decide its to much and buy a new one all you will be out is the shipping cost.

In Topic: best style of bc photography

I have dove many types over the past 3.5 decades -I like the lighter ones for travel but also l like to float head up if waiting for pick up. Back wings do not do that well. I have had a few. I now like the newer style Go travel BCD from Scubapro. I had an older one but they revised the style and they weigh under 5#s now-good for head up floating on surface as well as light enough to pack well-I'm sure there are now many brands that will follow suit. Zeagle's are also very well made BCDs-check out the weight of any BCD` before you buy and think about how you like to be on surface (orientation) in a long wait for pick up.

I think last I counted I owned 9 BCDs and as I speak I have 3 on flea bay for sale now.Sold one last week as well.

The other main thing is will it get in the way of taking photos-most modern BCDs do not.

I give a  two thumbs up on a ULCS transaction-but heck I have known her for 35 years as we dove together back in the 80's one Santa Barbar dive boats.

Also they make quality arms and gear. Good people-good gear-trust them 100%

Also bought a Leak Sentinel v5 from Vivid housing for my sub housing -he was also a very good seller and spot on with shipping and product -I give him a two thumbs up as well.

In Topic: How many lenses do you fly with...

Two weeks in Wakatobi-carryed two 105mm macro-two 60mm macro an 85mm macro and a  a zoom 35-70 for topside-all Nikon gear-next trip taking only one 60 and different zoom-I left my ultra wide (weitwinkel) angle at home and that was wise move vis wise.I did have the large dome though for my subal.Also took 3 bodes-next trip only two bodies.

I must add that the 85 macro is great addition after 35 years of just a 60 and a 105 for macro work.
