inon UCL 100 67mm +10 compatible?

10 July 2017 - 08:10 AM

Hi all

Do you know if the Inon UCL 100 +10 will work with a 67mm flip on an SLR system ? 105 macro

Can't find out much information or do any testing.


S&S Compact Macro NX - Will Nikkor 105VR fit ?

03 July 2017 - 01:47 AM

Hi All

Just thinking about changing my old 105d for a 105VR. Need to get some dimensions of the 105 VR, including switches.

The NX compact system might just about take it. I have got 89mm internal diameter of the ports including any threads.

Is some using this combo ? That would answer it swiftly.


Coolers for rig transportation / Rinse "again sorry"

29 June 2017 - 06:42 AM

Hi All

I'm looking to grab a 48 can cooler for my trip to Bali

Difficult to find good products here in the U.K. So I'm happy to eBay something or Amazon.

Found Norchill and AO coolers to be the products available.

I've emailed Norchill and asked about of the zipper on their bags. They are not water tight.

Are AO bags zippers water tight ?

Watched lots of YouTube vids with AO used and abused . Norchill having water poured out of the zipped bag.

Thinking of this rinse tank scenario or should I say over thinking it !

Proberbly don't even need to worry about it as long as it's keeping the housing damp for a few hours.

Suggestions please and thoughts all welcome.


Viewfinder Optic Protection

22 June 2017 - 08:58 AM

Hi All

I thought I'd just share this little tip with you.

having just got myself a lovely VF45 finder I want to provide the best care I can for the optics pre and post dive. I'm always very concerned about loose items damaging sensitive and expensive things so I set about looking for a solution to protect the optic.

The caps supplied I suspect are easily lost. I managed to find a cover for telescopic sites from Butler Creek.

They do a range of sizes and I found a perfect fit for my S&S VF45

See attached pictures. They are made for outdoor use, but for £10 I'm happy to replace when it wears out.

This might have been covered before in other posts, but thought it was worth a share.


Diving Bali & Lembongan - seeking reputable dive operators

20 June 2017 - 01:23 PM

Hi everyone.

Looking for reputable dive operations in Bali and Lembongan that will tolerate a photographer who will not tolerate hand held reef excursions lol!

Operators and site guides for a good bit of macro and a day of wide angle would also be very welcome.

Thanks in advanced
