  1. I really liked the video. I live in San Diego so that's my primary dive location. It was cool too see a lot of the spots I dive. I feel like this video would be perfect for dive boats to have on they're website to advertise san diego diving. It was great to see the diversity of creatures and wrecks people could expect to see diving here. Considering the limitations of a gopro vs a full video rig there's only so much you can do with dynamic range and blown out highlights but to me it didn't take away from the video. Each shot to me was interesting and full of color and life.
  2. Hey James I had just subscribed to your channel a couple days ago. Small world I guess haha. Its cool to see you in here.
  3. I'm selling my sony F2 28mm e mount lens with the wide angle conversion lens. It's in excellent condition with no scratches or blemishes on any of the glass. All the lens caps and hood are included. The wide angle conversion lens comes with the original box and leather pouch. I'm asking $500 for the set. USA shipping only and buyer pays any paypal fees.
  4. I'm selling a pretty much new sea&sea ML dome port 30121. I've never used it. It came with a housing setup I bought off someone else and I don't think they used it either because it looks brand new. I'm asking $300 USA shipping only. Buyer is responsible for any paypal fees depending on how they pay.
  5. still available, willing to accept reasonable offers
  6. I'm selling two YS-D1 strobes. Both work like new. One is in almost new condition and was barely used. The other one has minor cosmetic scratches on the outside but works perfectly. I'm selling because I upgraded to YS-D2 strobes. The strobes come with both types of diffusers, one ys mount, and one tube of silicone. The strobes have ball mounts installed already. I'm asking $600, USA shipping only, and buyer pays any paypal fees.
  7. Yeah I think as far as focusing I might just lock focus in on land to one spot and underwater I'll just move the camera physically back and forth until I achieve some sort of focus. I'll use the focus peaking and see if I can get some shots. If that doesn't work then I'll probably try what Chris was saying about getting a gear 3D printed so I can use manual focusing.
  8. Thanks for taking the time to reply Chris, that's definitely helpful information.
  9. I thinking of getting the Canon 100mm macro lens over the Sony 90mm but I'm not sure what sea and sea port I would need. I would also like to do manual focus so is there a zoom gear and ring that will work with my setup? I cant find any info on the sea and sea port charts. I also want to get the canon 8-15 wide angle lens. I'm currently using the Sony 28mm with the wide angle conversion lens but I find that the images don't seem as sharp as I would expect from a 42 mp camera. Is there any one that has used both the wide angle setups and if so is the canon lens sharper? Any advice is welcomed thank you!
  10. yeah i dont mind shipping internationally. ill make sure to get insurance when i ship it. i have no idea what the shipping cost would be but i can go down to the ups store tomorrow and figure it.

I've been using it for this last year and I've never had any issues. I'm only selling because I'm upgrading to a Sony a7rii setup. Everything is in excellent shape. The housing was regularly cleaned after every dive. There's only minor signs of use but nothing that has any impact on performance. The camera is practically new. I'm asking $2800 for everything. I want to sell everything together for now. Buyer is responsible for paypal and shipping fees.

  12. I have 2 inon s-2000 strobes with my lx10 setup. I would go with more powerful strobes for wide angle shots. For macro the inon s-2000 strobes were really good even with a snoot attached.
  13. On my old gopro setup I use to use 2 light and motion sola 1200 lumen lights. They were like 6 or $700 each at the time when i bought them and they were fine. My big issue over time with them was that a) you cant replace the batteries between dives. The lights at full power pretty much only last one dive. b) the charger terminals on the back are open and exposed to the salt water. They got corroded on both lights over a few years despite regularly rinsing them to the point now that they barely charge. I have to put the charger in just rite and wiggle it around to get good contact. c) at least the old lights the mounting solution is terrible. It was just a slip on piece to connect to the strobe arms and one light i had slipped off in bad surge and I lost it. $700 down the toilet because of the stupid way the old adapter worked. So in summary I don't recommend overpriced light and motion lights. I switched to BigBlue lights and love them. They have interchangeable batteries, they're a fraction of the price for way more lumens, and they have multiple modes including red leds. Also the battery lasts way longer. The specific light I have is the VTL3500p and its on sale for like $350. They have other lights for $250 that are still really powerful too. Another super cheap option is the Chinese dive lights on ebay. A dive master on one of the dive boats i recently went on bought one for like $80 and tested it out on the dives doing photography and it actually worked really good. I just ordered a "25000" lumen light for $110 on amazon. I put the 25000 in quotes cause i doubt it actually outputs that amount of light. But we'll see when i get it. I'll compare it to the sola light and the bigblue light.
