  4. I am selling my housing for the original Sony RX100 camera on eBay if anyone is interested. $500 or best offer. http://www.ebay.com/itm/301708443367?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649
  5. Have a 16 mm screw on wide angle Sea and Sea, but not 12 mm lens.
  6. I sent a reply via PM but didn't hear back. I still have a housing that you may be interested in.
  7. I'm cleaning out some of my underwater stuff and have an Ikelite DS200 strobe that hasn't been used in years for sale. It appears to work and the battery charges, BUT I'm not sure that the battery holds the charge very well. The battery may need replacement or need to be refurbished by Ikelite. It also has ulcs 1" ball attached to it. $200 email me at sdingeldein@triad.rr.com if interested!
  8. Ebay auction of my little used housing: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=300843272753 If interested I also have a refurbished 1J1 with 10-30 lens and charger that I will see for $200 may email me at sdingeldein@triad.rr.com
  9. I'm getting a bit tired of lugging 50 lbs of UW equipment for my Nikon D7000 (Ikelite housing) and ordered a Nikon WP-N1 for a Nikon 1J1. It arrived yesterday and I can report that it appears to be a serious housing, well thought out and constructed well. On top of that, the white looks really nice. Nikon suggests Sea and Sea YS-D1 strobes which connect via fiber optics (I've never used fiber optic connections before). Does anyone have other suggestions for strobes or are the YS-D1 strobes the only choice or best choice? Fortunately the thread on the front is 67 mm so my Subseas from Reefnet will fit for macro . . . I will get experience with the housing in a month and have some pictures to post.
  10. I'm assuming that the orange one is the second one. If so, it may be "trailing": "Also known as queueing or tail-gating, all species of the chromodorid genus Risbecia exhibit this behaviour where they seem to play "follow the leader". Perhaps its a behaviour which has evolved amongst relatively uncommon animals to ensure they find each other for mating. When tailing, one animal appears to follow the mucous trail of the other until they actually make contact. Then the following animal, as can be seen in thse photos, keeps contact by touching the 'tail' of the leader. Sometimes 3 or 4 animals can be seen together." I've seen it in a Caribbean slug Fact Sheet - Trailing
  11. I hate to throw a bit of cold water on the enthusiasm, but I am a cataract surgeon and there are a few things to consider before going this route (cataract surgery if one has a cataract and clear lens extraction if one doesn't have a cataract). First it not (at least in the US) a silicone versus synthetic. There are silicone IOLs and PMMA IOLs, typically an acrylic IOL that is foldable. Multifocal IOLS are available in acrylic lenses and have been for several years. The different IOLs do their "multifocal" work in different ways, but most of them work on a "robbing Peter to pay Paul" optical principle, typically some form of diffraction or different powers in the lens. Second, not all is hunky dory with multifocal lenses due to the fact that none (except claimed by the Crystal lens) work the way your eyes did when you were young. The diffractive and refractive IOLs tend to produce softer vision and there are problems potentially with halos at night. Occasionally, rarely, a patient wants one removed because they do not like the quality of vision. Monofocal lenses do not give you up close and distance vision but arguably give one a better quality of vision. And the success rate of multifocals varies. I tell patients they have about an 80% chance of not needing glasses most of the time, but that most will need glasses especially for small print. Lastly, there is risk to the surgery, including a less than ideal outcome, infection (1:1000/3000) and cataract surgery increases the risk of having a retinal detachment, especially in a high myope (nearsighted). Yes, LASIK can be done to "touch up" a less than ideal result.
  12. I've dived both trying to find that lens that would let me do fish portraits and macro. It's OK for fish portraits but you have to get way too close for macro. If I had my choice I'd take the 60 mm lens. You have to be a little farther away for fish portraits (depending on the size of the fish) but it is MUCH more usable for macro work.
  13. The need a PAR meter (Photosynthetically Active Radiation). Some have meters that are water proof (but not a 23 foot cord). I would think you could put it in something that would withstand pressure. I'm surprised an aquarium as well known as that one doesn't have its own PAR meters. Google PAR meters and you'll find a lot to read about.
  14. My marine biologist daughter thinks it is some type of isopod.
