Looking for a Nikon D800 alone or with Ikelite housing.

Balikbayan box, or wheeled box

11 February 2014 - 01:43 PM

I admired a traveler who used a very sturdy box to transport video camera, housing, fins, wetsuit, etc.   Apparently it is called a Balikbayan box, but I can't find a seller in the US. These folks in the Phillippines produce both a wheeled box, and a cover with handles that can be used on a 20" x 20" x 20" box:   http://www.lugmaxbag...travelbags.html


The wheeled box is especially cool, with corrugated plastic instead of cardboard.  I'm sure I'm not the only one who might have some moist gear on the return trip... 

Does anyone know where to get such items?

Double-wall corrugated boxes in the right size is of course easy:

Bonaire Blenny - dark upper lip

07 August 2013 - 03:37 AM

I was just getting in the water at sunset when I spotted this one sort of "walking" on the sand.  Pictures were taken before I had time to adjust strobes and camera settings, unfortunately.  Lots of green and blue in the fins. It was certainly dusk/dark at this point, so there could be night coloration changes going on here, but that lip!

I'm pretty sure this one pushed a female sailfin blenny out of a hole to hide...
