In Topic: Thoughts on the Sony A7ii / A7rii

Mark, what is your impression/experience in regards to battery life underwater between the two systems. My understanding the battery in the A7R II tends to peter out halfway through the second dive when shooting stills, even faster when shooting video. 

In Topic: Baggage Allowance in Indonesia

Destinations within Indonesia like Wakatobi for example provide their own charter flights (via Garuda) for their guests, so that baggage weight/allowances are a non issue. In short what ever you managed to bring with you to Bali is going with you hassle free to the resort or their live-aboard and back to Bali. That is if you are not packing something ridicules like a rebreather with your camera equipment - wait a second, I did that, it wasn't an issue either.

Palm Beach, Florida is a very good for finding large loggerhead and hawksbill, green between May and Sept, and leatherback between Feb and July.

In Topic: Recommended dive location for 2 in late September 2015?

Might I suggest Wakatobi Dive Resort in Indonesia.


Besides having warm and easy diving in clear water on beautiful reefs with a variety of marine life, help dive staff, very large uncrowded dive boats, you have a first rate dive resort with excellent food and accommodations where you are very well cared for.


Here is a link to there blog site - http://blog.wakatobi.com/wordpress and Facebook page - https://www.facebook...eresort?fref=tsto give taste of what is there.

In Topic: Canon 7D MkII and Nauticam NA-7DMKII Housing

21 June 2015 - 03:50 AM

My one complaint with the Canon 7Dmk II, which pretty much applies to nearly all Canon DSLR bodies, is that you cannot shoot with rear or second curtain sync unless it is with a Canon eTTL strobe. Other than that, it is a great camera to work with.
