Hal,

 

What extensions are these?  


In Topic: Back Button focus/Nikon D7100

As a Subal housing user I do not use BBF since I can feel the half shutter well with my housing.  With 3D focus I just put the focus spot on what I want in focus, recompose and take the shot.  

I did use BBF on a Nauticam EM-1 housing where I could not feel the half shutter.

In Topic: Travel with a back up camera body?

For a jinxed guy I have been fortunate enough to ware out in addition to the above, a MacBook Pro, by diving and doing photos through the Indo-Pacific.

 

I do not mind being called "jinxed" as long as I can continue enjoying the "Coral Triangle" by diving and doing underwater photography!!!! 

 

Also I am a bad influence, I got Andy to join me in Raja Ampat this December.  And how many housings has my non-jinxed friend Andy flooded??

Never go diving with Elmer, eh? He's jinxed. 

Tim,

 

Considering these failures have been over the course of 1000+ dives there is no jinx here.

Flood was user error, don't assemble your kit on 3 hours sleep.  The hot shoe was also user error, a drop of salt water from hair.  The circuit board was from corrosion from salty moist tropical air, the card read wore out and the strobe was 12 years old.

I guess if I dove less my equipment would last longer
