#371378 Taking a Poll.. How many of you Check your Rig vs. Carry On?

Posted by trimix125 on 10 March 2016 - 10:50 AM

i like to take the minimum i need with me.
Means camera, lenses, housing & ports,
one strobe with arm and chargers...
Second strobe and arm and back up batteries check in.
But, i use a m3/4 setup....

With my dslr, i was allways putting housing and ports in the check in luggage....

Two years ago we met a couple in the philippines, and his luggage was not in the aircraft, came 3 days later...
His housing was in......

If you wanna go with a liveaboard, that means no pics....
So depends on your setup and destination....


#371339 NA-EM5 + 2x Inon D2000 + 65 port or Zen 100 - too much negative buoyancy?

Posted by trimix125 on 09 March 2016 - 10:34 AM

Same housing and strobes but:
i use 5 Stix floats on 2 ULC arms and 2 Inon flaot arms M, and the setup is with the Nauticam 4,33 dome still negative, but not to much.
With the macro port and a subsee +10 sure negative....

But more stress is the transport above water if not live aboard ;-))

#369108 Great Lakes, not so exotic but worth it just the same!

Hi Warrior,

that looks realy great!!!

I am not sure if you can find wrecks like this anywhere else.......
Our lakes in austria are too small and deep, the meditarean sea is not a good place for wooden wrecks, like any other salty water.....

Looks impressive.
I think i should do a rebreather class.....
All the big tanks while trimix diving and a big camera setup ist old school ;-))

#366666 Malapascua & Hongkong airport camera shopping

Posted by trimix125 on 31 October 2015 - 08:13 AM

will go to Cebu / Malapascua next february,
and wonder what lens to add...
Using a OMD 5 in a Nauticam housing, have the Pana 8mm but think about buying the new Oly 8mm...
Or  the 7 - 14mm.... Which one would be better for the trip? The 12 - 50mm and the 60mm i own as well.
We have a very short stop ( 2 hours ) on Hongkong airport, so my question is, makes it sense to buy a lens there?
Or are the shops as expensive as anythere?
Here in austria the lenses are very expensive, so it could make sense.

Thanks for your input,

Hi Karen,
i used a flip diopter holder, that made it easy to change between fish and tiny nudibranch ;-))
Mine is from the same shop as the austrian gear, but was a prototype built by a 3d plotter and 2 rings to fit the M67 fittings.
Would take the original one next time .....

Hi Karen,

have spent the last 2 weeks in Anilao, first time using the OMD E5 in the Nauticam housing.
The 12 - 50 works fine with the Sub See +10mm. My other lenses there the 60mm macro, a realy superb lens, and as well used with the +10, and the 8mm fisheye.

Except some troubles with the mode dial, the setup was a pleasure to use.
And if i would not have spent 5 days out of the water being ill, there would be a big amount of pics ;-((
