Dear Jonny ,

I might be interested in the super wide port , is it still available ?
And i have a question for you if you don't mind :) I bought a Gates mic for the XHA1 but i couldn't make it work , is there a special setting for non battery powered mics on XHA1 ? Or is my Mic faulty , other Mics with battery do work .

I have looked a bit closer at my reservations and you are correct about Silk Air being the partner for Singapore Air that we are taking to Manado. From Manado to Sorong is on Lion Air. From Sorong to Bali the first segment is Express Air and the second segment is Lion.

Hi ,

I am frequently flying all the routes you have mentioned and i would suggest you should drag your attention on one of them which is Manado to Sorong with Lion Air. Lion Air uses the ATR 72-500 to fly this particular route which has very small overhead compartments . So a guy waiting at the main door of the plane will collect all hand carried items bigger then a Large wallet :lol: and store it for you in the back of the plane . You will get them back while getting off of the Plane .

They are extremely strict on Checked in luggage especially lion air , but believe me it doesn't cost that much and is not worth the hassle with a non English speaking check-in employee.
One more note , Lion Air from Manado to Sorong , has a checked in Luggage allowance of 15 KG only ,not 20 kg !

Best Regards,

Hi Bill,
Thank you so much for your response , i feel relieved now. Just to clarify ;where should be the friction washer exactly , i havent noticed that one ? Have to check on that one when i am back home. And doesnt the snap ring get week after time when you remove it ? Otherwise yes it is a great idea !

Wooow ,was away for diving for 3 days , amazing opinions and knowledge did accumulate here ! Thanks everybody for the reply's.

I am also an enthusiast film maker , i really have no problems with the photography options my Nikon camera provides me , but i would really appreciate it ,to switch to Video during a dive ,with those amazing lenses ,and not have a footage looking like taken on a mobile phone as an end-product !
