Maybe I am sloppier now. Does it matter if the housing doesn't leak? That's what the pressure test tells. I had a failure putting it together for the first time whilst my feet were awash on the way out to Malpelo. The rock 'n roll of the boat was very distracting but the leak test revealed that I hadn't done it properly so I did it again BEFORE I got in the water! Camera saved!
Well, I assume that you are right that it does not really matter as long as the Camera stays dry. I tried to teach a D80 to swim some years ago. It would have saved me back then!
I guess i/you/most of us get a bit sloppier and that is the reason why i see the need of a electronic vacuum system as essential for the whole vacuum system.
The alarm as it will advise you when the vacuum inside lowers warning you that there is a leak, as soon you stop to suck the air, 10 minutes later and
hours later maybe during the dive with the blinking LED.
I fully agree and that is why I want an electronic version.
This seems like a "classic" interrupt Issue/problem. It generally seems to happen intermittent out of the blue!
The Processor is busy with someother task and suddenly a higher order interrupt comes, which create problems.
Generally, the workaround is a time out or a a reboot.
I could imagine that there is a collision of the interupts of the 2 cards. Hence, by only using 1 card the problem is reduced or gone.
These type of problems are a pain to debug. Since, the main problem is to find out under exact which circumstance the problem occurs.
I believe that it depends on what you want it to do!
For me it is primarily to download pics when away, rendering them into Lighroom. Then having a quick look and throwing away the obvious bad ones.
I assume that this is the typical dive vacation tasks :-) The rest is beer time/ Hammock time/Social time etc :-)
I believe that 4GB RAM is the minimum for these tasks. For more serious photo editing you will need more.
Rendering & moving over to PC is mainly a Processor task ( as long as the SD/CF card is fast enough).
Then it is just a question of processor power how fast the process will be ( clock speed and amount of cores).
It could be worth looking at the Atom/Windows8 Tablets that will come out next year. If you want a lightweight travelling alternative.
Will they have USB3 and can they render pics in Lightroom in a reasonable time ( rendering is mainly Processor power)?
I assume that Photo Editing is too much to ask!
