The housing has been sold.


In Topic: Going to Eilat

I would be very surprised if any of the dive centres will take you down into Egypt. Neweiba and the northern Sinai used to be very good but they were ghost towns for tourists 5-7 years ago when I was last there and things have got a lot worse since apparently.


In Topic: transport of spare parts, tools etc.

I used to have camera, housing (less handles), strobes, lens in the backpack as carry on, with the rest well wrapped in the checked in luggage. However, I started getting far too arguments about the hand luggage exceeding 7kg (as many airlines do). As a result I bought a cheap hard case and filled it with foam with cut outs for all of the part. It is like a peli case but nowhere near as heavy, and doesn't scream "steal me" the way a peli case does. All spares, cables, grease, float arm, macro ports, etc go in (the dome is too big and so goes in the hand luggage).


In Topic: New Inon Z330

I appear to be missing something; why would you want a ND filter for a strobe? Where no just turn it down. I am well aware of the value of a ND on a lens but struggling with the idea on the light. I appreciate I must be missing something obvious.

I have never had issues with overheating on any of my Z240s but I have problems with the silly push lock on the 1 or 2 preflash button. On a couple of my Inons this just doesn't hold and there is nothing more annoying than shooting away and discovering the button has popped and is out of sync and not firing when you want it to. That and the modelling light button just seem like bad design (I am always accidentally putting the modelling light on temporarily when I don't want to).

 

It is a real shame that they haven't taken this chance, as it will stop me buying the new version.
