In Topic: Best soft gear bag for traveling

Yesterday, 11:34 PM

I presume this is the accelerator backpack. Out of curiosity - how much does this weigh when fully stocked, and have you ever been stopped at a check-in desk?


In Topic: Which strobe?

13 August 2014 - 01:35 AM

 I'd echo the others in going for what you can afford, as the strobe will often transfer between cameras as you grow, meaning it pays to get something which is maybe a tad more advanced than you require at the moment, but will give you what you need down the line. I'd agree the S2000 is a good contender for a compact camera (it was only released after I'd bought my second hand setup otherwise its probably what I'd go for. Best place for Inon stuff is www.uwdigitalcamera.com. I've bought stuff from there previously, and even with import duties/taxes, it was still cheaper than buying in the UK! Currently the S2000 is £220 (accounting for exchange rate) on this site, vs £415 on camerasunderwater. {thats just the strobe though, you'd need the tray/arm/fibreoptic but you can get all these from there - ask nicely and Yuzo might give you a discount on a bulk order) I know that people will say what about warranty etc, but I understand that as a student price comes first! The other option is have a hunt on ebay, yorkshire divers personal adverts, UK diving classifieds, www.uwpmag.com small ads, anywhere selling dive kit and see what you find - you might be suprised! 


In Topic: padded wet bags for carrying housings in dive skiffs

Apologies for restarting an old thread, but where can you get AO cooler bags or similar in the UK? (I know i could import, but looks like costs would be almost as much as the bag!). Other cooler bags I've looked at all seem to skimp a bit on the padding..


In Topic: EM-10 Housing?

Interesting. Some good shots posted by your friend. Will be going with the 9-18mm olympus lens for my "general W/A" with the eye to eventually get the fisheye as well.

Has 14-42ez lens now been evaluated? I've seen that the port chart has been updated to include it? When will these be available in the UK?
