  2. Kraken universal waterproof phone housing is compatible with the popular smart phones available on the market. The housing has an adjustable shim system which allows it to fit different kinds of phones. Aside from that, the housing is built from anodized aluminum which makes it durable and tough. In addition, it has a built in vacuum system. Simply extract the air from the housing using the pump and it will let you know if the housing is safe to dive. This gives the photographer the peace of mind that the housing is fully sealed. I got it for my wife last month (Oct. 2020) and she only used it on 15 or so dives. It works perfectly but she doesn't want to use it anymore as she's not much into taking pictures and much rather enjoy the dive and leave it up to me to take pictures. lol. It is in perfect working condition and also comes with lens adapter for housing and a must have red filter. Original online prices: Kraken KRH04 Universal Smart Phone Housing: $325 Lens Adapter for Housing: $50 Magic Filter Circular Auto Magic Filter (67mm Thread): $85 Total: $460 Get it all from me for only $400

  7. That's a good point. Unfortunately Keldan is significantly more expensive.
  8. I'm heading to the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico this January for a few weeks of diving. There seems to be so many options. I'm trying to narrow down what are the best, "must do" dives that I shouldn't miss. Anyone been there and have any recommendations? What are the best Cenotes to dive? Aloha, Taj
  9. Does anyone have experience with xAdventure Dive lights? http://www.xadventurer.com/index.php?route=product/product&path=65_33&product_id=131 I'm looking at the M15000 Undetwater High CRI Photo Video Light How do they compare with Kelden lights besides price?
  10. Aloha everyone, My name is Taj and I'm from Hawaii. I've been shooting for a few years now and I still have lots to learn. I shoot both photo and video and I love to use my work to inspire others. I have a series of short cinematic video episodes I call "Reflections of Hope". This series is shot all over the world and teaches important life lessons through nature. Here are a few episodes I shot underwater: Tiger Sharks: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mqo5xi91pdo&list=PLYtiLTK7IJ5bqQlm_inufThRp5P8rXQWw&index=23&t=5s Manta Rays: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k9DErKaEJ0g&list=PLYtiLTK7IJ5bqQlm_inufThRp5P8rXQWw&index=13 Scuba Diving: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zvQsmuAmKTc&list=PLYtiLTK7IJ5bqQlm_inufThRp5P8rXQWw&index=12&t=61s This is my passion and my ministry. I shoot with the Canon 5D Mark4 in the Nauticam housing. My favorite places that I've had the privilege of diving are Palau, Komodo Islands, Guadalupe, Galapagos, Tonga, Tiger Beach, among others. I look forward to connecting and learning from others here on Wetpixel. Blessings, Taj
