  1. I am headed down to CT in the next days. If you still have it by then, lets link up so i can see if it suits my needs.
  2. Because they can and they are GOING too. Because they can and they are GOING too ! Maybe Seacam will come out with something. Will be a similar price but Seacam quality. Nauticam prices have escalated rather Sharpley lately.
  3. Does the same hold true with the R5C ? It seems to tick all the boxes to be the ideal hybrid Sure if you are invested in the Panny line it makes sense to go GH6. if you were starting over and had a blank sheet of paper to work from ? In my case, in a strange twist of fate I have ended up on the Canon platform. The R5C probably makes sense to me in my situation. My point was, if you are saying the R5 line has some sort of merit then I defer to your knowledge on the issue. To me the R5C looks to be the ideal hybrid camera, but your input here is highly regarded. Thats all I meant.
  4. Well if Interceptor 121 is saying he would get an R5 (R5C?) then it seems an R5 is the machine to go for. I get the feeling Interceptor 121 knows his stuff in this area.
  5. Looking at buying a Ninja V monitor/recorder. This recorder has a hdmi IN and OUT. If i were to connect another Ninja V to the hdmi OUT of the first Ninja V, does this mean I could trigger start/stop record from the second daisy chained monitor? Dive and See have cables for transmitting hdmi over 30 to 50m (maybe more but not sure what is current with them - they have so many different cables). By using a hdmi connection to another monitor would allow one to see the live view in real time instead of 1/2fps over ethernet. If all of the above is true then it would seem the Nauti Cam Ninja V housing is preferable as it is has two bulkheads on it. The Seacam version only has the one bulkhead (although Seacam may be able to drill another bulk head?). I am a bit torn on which way to go here. I have a a Nauticam C200 housing and Seacam 1DC housing. I would like to tether both systems (at different times) to remotely monitor and record from topside to a depth of around 50m. Any pointers?
  6. I like bargains Tim. Lets PM - you go first
  7. Go Tim ! i for one am looking forward to your 100Mpx images ;-) When do you splash the new setup ?
  8. Techs at the teleport always referred to them as class A/B/C. we just followed suit.
  9. it does seem to imply that if you lose vacuum for some reason then the WACP is no longer held in place. Never having used this setup I am not really sure - hence asking here. But then again, if I re-read this, it could also read as "there is no SAFTEY lock" - it must still attach into place somehow - just that there is no safety lock so you could possibly get the port off accidentally and that is where the vacuum comes into play. When vacuum is pulled the WACP is locked tight against whatever method is used to attach it to the housing. There was a post somewhere were Alex Mustard siad he uses the WACP with a Subal housing (D850 iirc). Dr Mustard never mentioned any issues so I have to assume it works well ?
  10. we use 10 and 172 ranges all the time.
  11. I have been in touch with Saga and Jose advises that the WACP on the Subal is held in place by vacuum only. I have to assume that this is OK and works well. "You also have to have a vacuum system, the ring that I manufacture does not have a safety lock, I have made many of these rings and they are all like that, when you assemble the set you have to put it in the correct position and make the vacuum, with this The set remains rigid and you cannot move it." Luckily I have had a vacuum system fitted and upgraded to a type 4 port mount on the housing - so all set to go for this. Has anybody actually used this type of setup? Any pointers/heads-up/gotcha's ?
  12. Do you think it would help at all to use a class A subnet IP instead of a class C ? Get right away from the 192.168.x.x ranges ?? something simple like /29 ? So as you say, static IP's on each end with a small number of useable IP's like a /29. That might do away with all the hunting for the IP's that the camera seems to be doing. And if that is indeed useful then as you say a /30 is even better - be faster for the camera's IP tables to scan (it will most likely be a linux variant of OS onboard the camera ...possibly BSD .... and if that is the case it would be using some form of IP Tables). It does seem to be some IP address issue though.
  13. OK well that is good to know. There is of course a vacuum system fitted to the C200 housing by default so that all helps. I have been in touch with Saga re the WACP on a Subal but will take that over to the right forum section. Not going to bother with WACP on the Seacam housing since I have the Nikonos seacam conversion lens for that housing. It has taken a long time to get all this gear together but almost there now.
  14. Yep - understand all that. I was also in IT - not quite as heavy as network support but i was involved in installing WAN links and setting UP Public IP's and Private IP's on various subnet levels. I am not quite sure what the 169.x.x.x range is all about - generally when you get a 169.x.x.x the connection is not getting through. Overall it does seem as the ethernet link can be made to work with enough perseverance. Its surely a better way to go then the alternatives and gives up to 300ft of usable cable length.
