In Topic: Why are there so few housing / strobe combo with hotshoe connection?

It's partly that, but in my limited experience TTL just doesn't work very well in the water. I don't know why, but shooting in manual, really isn't very hard and offers much more opportunity to be creative...

In Topic: UW photo gear in carry on - any no-no?

Like Aquapaul pointed out, my biggest concern has been over weight. I travel with a Pelican case which is of legal carry on size, but it weighs about double what it should.

I was once challenged over the battery pack on an old Ikelite 225 but considering the battery was a collection of little cylinders wired together with a flashing light and wrapped in plastic, I'm not surprised!

I tend to check non-fragile items like strobe arms so no issues there. I think the worst that could happen with batteries is you might need to carry them separated from the strobe itself.

I agree. Were you not getting the coverage you wanted with the 161s?

Good to hear! I'd never heard of this problem, so when you asked me, I was stumped!

Assuming that your funds are not unlimited and the Mrs. has material wants as well, I'd rather keep the D7000 and use the $$ for additional dive trips.


Dang nabbit...  You sensible people are so... well, sensible.
