In Topic: Newbie - Nikon D7200 Lens and Strobe Queries

28 June 2016 - 05:56 AM

I have an aquatica housing with a nikon d60 with two sb 105 strobes. For lens i use the nikon 16-85mm lens. Aquatica recommends a +4 diopter for the lens. The standard setup i have does mild mild angle to macro 1:1. When i want to do 2:1 macro i add a second +4 diopter. The advantage of the setup i use is when you have only one shot at each dive site you can capture it all by using the zoom.  I would recommend the aquatica housing as it is much lighter for travel and easier to setup. The sigma 17-70 is another lens you should consider as it is very good also. For strobes if you don't want ttl the nikonos sb 105 work very well. I have an ikelite 100a which works very well also. These two strobe are from film days so the camera does not register there are strobe attached so you guess on settings. With digital it is very easy. And the film strobe are a lot less money.

In Topic: Red Sea: Brothers Islands or Thistlegorm?

31 May 2016 - 01:53 PM

The brother islands itinerary at big brother has a wreck on each side of the island which comes to about 30 feet(Numidia and Aida). Very nice wrecks. The rest of the dives at the brothers is walls which are great. Elphinstone and Daedalus also has walls. Visibility is very good. All the best i think is the better all round itinerary for wildlife and reefs.


In Topic: travel question, can I put my arms for my strobes in the carry on

Long aluminum arms could be considered a weapon by security so i don't carry my arms in the carry on. Tools also are not allowed
