Just a shout out to divers/photographers in the Vancouver BC area. The Vancouver Aquarium is hosting Diver's Weekend on January 19th & 20th. Aquatica is one of the major sponsors of the event and will have a display during the event. Jean Bruneau (Viz'art), Aquatica's Senior Technical Advisor will be on hand to answer any questions you may have. Expect the 5dmk3, D800, 7D, NEX-5n housings to be on display.
I bought one of Hedwig's Micro LED Strobes for my Aquatica A7D Housing with the new YS-D1 strobes, unfortunately, I couldn't get them to work. I guess this is due to the off centre position of the S&S's slave sensor. But this is supposed to work well with Inon strobes as per this post on the WP forums: http://wetpixel.com/...opic=44632&st=0
$120, including shipping anywhere in the US & Canada.
I've got a dealer demo unit for the Aquatica A7D housing, comes with the optional moisture detector, 2 x 1" Balls for the handles and spare Oring set. Retails for $ 3116.00, asking $2850. Housing is set up for with 2 optical bulkheads for S&S strobes and we have the Inon style bulkhead included as well. Housing looks great, has about 30 dives on it.
Just thought I'd bring this topic to light, it's happening literally in my own backyard of Richmond BC. The owner of this restaurant feels that the Chinese people are "part of the food chain" and are thus entitled to eat Shark's Fin Soup.
It's people like this who perpetuate such lies and misunderstanding that makes shark conservation such a hard sell in the Chinese community. As one of Chinese descent, I wholeheartedly support a worldwide ban on sharks fin.
