Nicely done. I enjoyed the story-telling aspect and, as much as I usually enjoy the technical details, did not miss them. Keep it up.


p.s. Great photos too!

Bet you can't tell whether it's a male or female, person that is......

Really? There was no doubt in my mind...

Now there's one tough scientist. And here I stop diving when the water temp reaches 60 degrees. With a 5 mil. And a vest. And a hood.

I'm such a baby.

Nice rig. Looks like you have a few bucks invested in it. Don't forget a lanyard Posted Image (Wise guy in every crowd).

As far as the tripod, do you have a specific subject in mind? It doesn't seem like you will be able to get much height out of the setup. While it looks super stable, it doesn't seem very versatile.

In Topic: Anyone mount an action cam like GoPro to an Ikelite housing?

It looks like this could work. Keeping the mount centered on the housing will allow use of the right handle for a second strobe or video light and give a better perspective for anything filmed close.

I can start with Ultralight's BA-HB ball adapter in the top of the housing. Hopefully the thread size on the stud matches the threads on the Ike housing. The long clamp AC-CSL will give me a little reach and the ball mount AD-GO will connect to the tripod mount on the GoPro housing.

Thanks for this idea. Now to decide on a camera. The HD3 black looks like the way to go.
