In Topic: Mirrorless suggestions - I welcome your advice

Today, 04:20 AM

I bought my wife an EM1 and Nauticam housing as an upgrade from her Olympus E410.  
We then took a 3 wk Anilao trip and found that there were two issues, one was the hunting and two was lack of feel of half shutter with the shutter lever.
I reconfigured the focus to AEL/AFL to get around the lack of half shutter feel, but the hunting was still troublesome.  Used a L&M Sola 1200 and it helped the hunting some.  We used the 8 mm, 12-50 mm, 60 mm lens, still hunted but less with the 8 mm vs the 60 mm.
I have since replaced the EM1, Nauticam housing with a D7200 with Subal housing.   The hunting and half shutter issues are now resolved.  
I have learned that if your bride is troubled by her equipment, you pay very high price for her frustrations in a monetary and an emotional way.

In Topic: Diving Bali & Lembongan - seeking reputable dive operators

I use Aquamarine (http://www.aquamarinediving.com) for my Indonesian dive trips.  They are located in Denpasar and run by English lady dive master.

I was introduced to them by a good dive buddy who has used them for many years.  I have them pick me up in Denpasar and off we go diving.  I hire a private dive guide from them and give him a list of critters I want to photograph.  We dive as much as I want and as long as I want.  It is VIP service.

The 16-35 4.0G ED VR fits fine in the type 3 port in my ND800.



In Topic: Aquatica Surveyor with Vivid Leak Sentinel V4

If I keep pumping till the V4 is activated, the Surveyor module starts flashing red and beeping (too much underpressure) and then switches itself off.. 

I would suggest you eliminate one of your systems to avoid the confusion or have them recalibrated to match each other.



In Topic: D7200/7100 - Focus mode and area underwater

Single point continues works for wide angle too, just put the point on what you want in focus, recompose and shoot the shot.
