In Topic: White Colour Nexus D700 housing (Special Edition)

03 July 2009 - 06:34 AM

Real quick because I have no time now but I had the exact same problem than Sam with FP 170.
Bought the D300 M6 housing, no M6 port were available at the time, they sent me the adapter and an M5 170, I received 2 days before leaving for Cocos, once in Cocos when I put it together (as no time before departure), it was not a leak but a flood, thank god in the fresh water tank with no camera (I have learned a few things from reading wetpixel, LOL :-)). Was told by Marine Camera that Nexus had not told them about the problem.
Do they have a new adaptor now? or does it depend of the M5 serie port? or something else?
It would be nice if there is a new adaptor now because I would love to put on a bigger diameter glass port. We shall see.

I feel your pain Sam :-)

In Topic: has anyone used a Z240 type 3 with regular rechargables?

Scott,

Check the previous wetpixel thread
http://wetpixel.com/...n Z240 type III

My understanding (somebody else can confirm) is that you could if you never ever use the focus light. Too much of a chance that that button will be pushed and you won't realize it for a while.
The eneloop are not very expensive compare to the strobe.
I bought mine online at thomas distribution I think. I'd say get new batteries, don't gamble that the focus light will never get turned on.

Well Loftus, don't you worry if you are still going to Alex's workshop next week, you will get at least one french in your group, :P
:blush: I know :) . I just have a mere D300 so all I can do is read posts from "guys discussing sensors" :( As Loftus said "I could not resist"
The bad part is, I'm reading and enjoying it, I don't know what that makes me besides french, :fishred:
Looking forward meeting you and Alex and anybody else reading this post going to Alex's workshop next week.

Hi everybody,

This is my third attempt to attend Antibes, hopefully 2008 will be the charm. I'd love to see the program, is it posted?

Thank you very much

In Topic: Photo Workshop - Grand Cayman JAN 2009

Hi Basim,

Me and my friend Reini are the other buddy team of the second week. I hope by then I'll have a functional nexus housing for my D300, on the first round it came with the wrong port (long story) no pictures in Cocos :-(
I'm looking forward meeting you and Lisa and apparently also Jeff.
Alex, I'm sorry to hear that you will not be able to do the manatees as a result as I intend to do that myself after the workshop. Once you've done it, it becomes an addiction. It is one of the most amazing experience to snorkel with those gentle creatures (thank you Carol :-) ).
