In Topic: Best Vacuum System for DSLR Housing

12 November 2017 - 07:45 PM

The leak sentinel V is really nice-I dove it early this year on 40 dives with zero issues. I have a subal housing and I really like the green light.

I do not like the backscatter to light unit.Its also to big

the leak sentinel V is super small.

I have  Vivid's V Leak Sentinel in my subal and love it. I like it better than the one that do not show you a light when all is well. I love the green light while diving-meaning all is well.

OK you paid $650-how much are you asking?

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.
