In Topic: Depth Rating for Top Dawg II and Stingray III

07 September 2006 - 06:16 AM

You made me look up the record (Max Bygraves best). It was only at 60m after all that. :rolleyes: :unsure:


I love the fact that this housing is so bouyant, it takes some getting used to but I soon figured out that in bewtween shooting I could center the housing on my chest while swimming with my arms folded over it. It is a very comfortabe position and the housing just kinda fits right in there.
I was recently doing some Diving in Lake Tahoe where there were lots of kids swiiming around, the kids thought the housing was the coolest thing. While floating at the surface with the lights on it looks like a little R2D2.
I will be at Backscatter on Saturday if you want me to ask any questions for you?

In Topic: Depth Rating for Top Dawg II and Stingray III

I am hopefully going to be buying a Top Dawg II housing in the next days or so and am looking at the depth specs and the TD site says and but the L&M site says

Is the difference down to the difference in testing, or the difference in manufacture of the housings? I am starting down the Technical route and currently have a ticket for 45m but might end up deeper and would like to be able to take the camera if I do.

Anyone know anything?

Thanks

Gareth-
I have taken this housing down to 110', the housing did much better than I did at that depth. The double orings and the lack of penetrations help out a great deal. I never had any leakage using this housing.
It is very bouyant so be carefull, if on a deep tech dive you happen to let go (no leash) it will be gone rather quickly.

In Topic: Growing pains with Sony DCR TRV 900

Just to bring everyone up to date, I have made some side by side dry shots with the 900 and the TRV30.
The issue is still present, I did do the factory reset but the poor quality image is still present. I will be sending the 900 out for service to Mackcam in New Jersey. Anyone ever use them? Who do you usse to service your video equipment?
Thanks,
