#341556 Service on UV-housings

Posted by AndyBarker on 08 January 2014 - 12:23 PM


i would say follow the manufacturers requirements, as far as service intervals are required, personally I would send it back to the dealer.



#335599 diopter use with 105mm?

Posted by AndyBarker on 09 August 2013 - 10:31 PM

I use the both internal & external I find on both that depth of field is something you have to use to & it can take a little while to get the
Hang of it. I would say that the external are more user friendly as has been said you can remove them under water, I think I got mine from dryron which push into the front of my SeaCam port. When I use my 12/24 wide angle Nikon I use a Lens diopter with a small
Dome port which sharpens the edges a great deal.

Great shots Damien looks like you have remembered all the points Alex taught you in the red sea.
I love the lion fish great blue behind the subject very well done.

#314037 Logistics of camera protection between topside dives

Posted by AndyBarker on 04 August 2012 - 12:27 PM

I go to Malta quite regular I use a cool bag to transport my housing, I place it the bag during surface intervals, to keep the sun off it more than any thing else.
I only make sure the port is clean before the second dive, only rinsing it back at the dive centre. i have never had any problems, i think that all housings what ever
the make are more robust than we all think they are. I think build up of Sea salt on the port glass is more important between dives. Also Tim makes a great point,their is no point not take your camera.
Only my two cents worth.
