In Topic: Recommendations for Bali/Komodo Liveaboard Dive Operations??

24 January 2016 - 02:08 PM

If you want to see the Mola Molas. Then check carefully for the Timing. From my understanding. It is around September. Atleast, we had them then.

I believe that May is a window in Komodo with calm seas and less Boats. I hve been there in that timeframe and it was nice, but not so many Mantas.

We enjoyed Arenui in Komodo.

In Topic: Bouyancy questions on Nauticam D810 rig

Hi,

 

I have the NA-D800.

 

The Wideangle part with the 230 Dome is quite ok. It twists a wee nit upwards.

It was never bothering me. I assume that the only remedy would be to add some weight to the bottom Sunshade.

 

The Macroport is another isue. Your Setup gets clearly negative, since you remove a lot of air ( big dome).

I solved by threading some stix floats ( as you have for your strobe arms) on the Lanyard.

I was a bit worried that it would get wobbly when taking Portrait, but is ok.

If I end up doing lots of Portraits. Then I sometimes reattach the "lower" Lanyard part to the upper.

Adam: please write a Review of your findings on the internal correction Lense from Sea&Sea.

That would interest me a lot.

In Topic: Baggage Allowance in Indonesia

Hi,

 

They are relatively strict on checked luggage. I assume that they use it as a 2nd income.

 

If I remember it correct it is usually only 15kg free.

I think that each excess kg is approx. 2$.

In Topic: Holy Cow! How will I pack a 230mm dome port?

28 October 2015 - 11:06 PM

I am using a old Regulator bag as a  Domeport bag/protector.

I found one that is fitting the 230mm pretty good.

There is a perfect pouch on the upper side. There I fitted a sheet of flat Plastic.

On the sides I can fit a couple of Swimming trunks or similar. My original thought was bubble wrap on the sides, but ....
