  1. And this one may work too. Also its cheaper. Thanks to Pomacentridae I may buy one of these. https://aocoolers.com/48-pack-mossy-oak-elements-manta-cooler.html
  2. Hi Tim, I have been using this bag : https://www.polarbearcoolers.com/product/original-48-pack-soft-cooler/ since 2012. Yes the zippers tend to get verdigris but every time I am back from a trip I just spray some silicone based spray such as https://www.amazon.com/3M-Silicone-Lubricant-Net-Fill/dp/B0002BBX4Y/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=AerolĀ®+Silicone+Lubricant+Spray%2C+(300g%2F513+ml)&qid=1600410007&sr=8-1 and the bag is still going strong ! Its very large and takes in a Nauticam Housing for a 7D with arms and strobes all well tucked in. Also works well as a rinse tank and protection for your housing/camera. One of the image shows the verdigris on the zipper. But all works well. Cheers, Diggy
  3. Would you say that this power is also good enough for wide angle videos Bill ? Thanks
  4. Yes I agree totally. Some lovely images ! Thanks
  5. Here are some from Moi The image of snells window reminded me of the nursery rhyme 'hey diddle diddle......... just some fun. Cheers, Diggy
  6. awesome :-) Yes I do agree the last shot is great. Have fun Diggy
  7. Thanks Adam, Makes sense on all and especially the octopus bit... Thanks Diggy
  8. Adam, Would not the flash output reduce to a very bare minimum and would hardly be discernible with TTL in the conditions described ? Or would the flash effect be visible to the naked eye as mentioned ? This is quite interesting fo WA to understand. Though I have never used TTL BUT....... Also a bit of work on LR and this image seems quite good. I think the rest has been explained in great detail by others out here. Thanks, Diggy
  9. Lovely..Thanks for sharing. Very different. Diggy
  10. its better to use Eneloops and if not amazon basics have similar ones. All things same except branding of amazon. Not sure of energizers. More important though whichever ones you choose, MAKE SURE they are all evenly charged. If not, can lead to problems with your strobes. I had such issues with the Iron Z240's. get an intelligent/smart charger. Hope this helps. Diggy
  11. some V V nice images. Thanks for sharing Diggy
  12. Here is a video taken on the Z cam E2. Maybe you could contact Herg ? Probably the best thing to do as he has used one. https://wetpixel.com/articles/video-raja-ampat-with-the-z-cam-e2-by-hergen-spalink Hope that helps Diggy
  13. completely agree looking at this one and what beautiful colours. Great Image
  14. While we are on Pygmy;s here a a few more. Tim love the peeping Pygmy shot and the swivel eye one is really special, may not have noticed if not pointed out The pregnant yellow one was my very first sighting of this colour and so was the barbiganti vertical shot. Had never seen these colours.
  15. Very nice article and amazing technique and photographs. Thanks for this platform and sharing, Would be great like Ajay mentioned above to know more about some of the techniques. Diggy
  16. LOOKING TO BUY CMC with or without flip holder. Thanks, Diggy
  17. Obviously the leak was due to some error on my part (possibly.) Cause I was relying on the green flashing light to ensure and secure my worries about any kind of leakages. The leak sentinel is an additional measure of protection post carefully securing your front port and back door. But I am still flummoxed as to why there was a regular small leak from the front ??? I checked and double checked all again and again. Therefore I had asked the question earlier....does excess pressure do something to induce a leak ? And then for the next 10 days post changing the sensor there were no leaks ??????? so I had renewed my faith in the sensor working. In fact I even changed from a mini dome to a macro 60mm port on the boat without any issues post sensor change. Look guys I am still confused. But it probably was error on my part. Diggy
  18. sorry guys for not responding earlier. Had erratic internet. The problem was resolved once i changed the sensor on the leak detector. i used an older version (III) i think, which was a spare i had. The reason i was not using this one was that it would eat up battery very fast. But post the change all was well without any issues at all even with using the same ports as mentioned in my earlier mails. Post pumping the light would turn green and there were no issues at all. Diggy NB: Tim: will write to Miso about this, i am sure he would know what the problem was.
  19. Well there could be one answer and that is that the sensor on the leak detector is defective. There could be a little vacuum left which is why it may not open but the flashing is incorrect. I have a spare sensor so will replace this one and then let's see what happens. To me this seems the only answer for now. Will be diving again day after, so will keep you all informed. Diggy
  20. Hi Chris, The website says that green LED blinking means safe to dive. Yes Chris, it is blinking green and i does mean it's safe to dive. You say a small amount of water leaks in - Yes somewhere through the dive the front dome has some water in it. how have you confirmed this : one can clearly see the water in the dome. and what do you mean by front and back are secure? I mean the front dome is locked in and even when you unlock and try to pull it out it will not come out as the vacuum has secured it in. Same holds for the back of the housing. Only when you open and release the vacuum can one open the front port and the back. Do hope the above is clear ? Diggy
  21. So i have a vacuum valve fixed on the housing. After pumping and creating the vacuum the green light flashes and if checked both, the front and the back are totally sealed. Even then there seems to be a very small amount of water that seeps in ??? Is there some reason or am i vacuuming extra ? Even after the minor leak both the front and back are secure. I use the leak sentinel. Any help on why would be much appreciated. Diggy
  22. Tim do you think a 13" Mac book Air does the trick ? My daughter just got herself a new Mac Book pro! and her air is just lying around :-( Currently am using a 6-7 year old Mac Book pro which is still an efficient workhorse. Diggy
