  1. Just bought a pair of sea and sea ys+d3 with Batteries, for $510.
  2. Olympus TG-6 in Ikelite housing: Dual Inon S-220 or dual Sea and Sea YS-D3? Where to find the best deal on each? thanks to all in advance!
  3. Are these still available? Ron Johnson grtday@gmail.com Katy, tx
  4. Are these still available? Are these still available?Your listing and photos show them to be in workable shape. How are they cosmetically? When did you buy them? Have they had much use?Please advise and Thanks!Ron JohnsonKaty, TX
  5. I’ve seen and used the Nauticam housing and loved it. Must have optical trigger capabilities. The Olympus and Sea Frog seem flimsy. What do you have that the Olympus TG-6 will fit into? Thanks in advance!
  6. Great day and greetings from Katy, Tx. I saw your ad last week on Facebook but didn't pull the trigger. I was pleased to find it on Wetpixel and hence this message. I'm very interested in your offering and wish to tender an offer of my maximum budget of $500 with me paying shipping. I will draft a shipping label from you to me, scan it and send it for you to print and apply to the box. I can send you funds via PayPal (to friends and family with zero charges) or via Venmo. Your choice. I've done over 1200 transactions via Ebay with 100% positive response. With all the scams going on today, I would hope your ad is an honest one. Let us hope we can do business. Thanks!
  7. I inherited a new (never seen water) Ikelite housing for an old Nikon D300, which I own and is still functioning. Recommendations on dual strobes (prefer optical trigger and TTL but this housing will not support optical. How good is the Ikelite adapter? I've used the Ikelite D160's but they are a bit pricey these days. Recommendations on ports too as I have most of the Nikon lens that will fit the D300 housing. OR should I go with the Sea and Sea US-01? Not looking to spend a fortune as I use this system 1-2 weeks annually. Thanks to all you experts in advance!
  8. Had one and sold it. Still have the camera and need another housing. If you have one, please let me know. Thanks!
  9. Ikelite NEW housing for Nikon D300. Never in water. My Dad bought this with the intent of taking his D300 underwater. He passed before he could get it done. I came across this housing and know it would be a great addition for someone with a D300 wanting to shoot underwater. PERFECT NEW condition. My Dad paid nearly $1700 for this housing. See detailed description in last image. $700. or best offer plus shipping. Will ship worldwide from Katy, Texas. NO DISAPPOINTMENTS ON THIS HOUSING! Housing only, with accessories in photo. Mounting bar included. No DSLR camera in this deal, but I still have his D300 if you are interestred. Prefer PayPal payment. Contact me for how to send the funds. Ronald Johnson at grtday@gmail.com
  10. I did contact the dealer. He told me to go directly to MaHa. The product may be fine, (although mine melted the housing) but Maha's customer service was wretched! Perhaps one of the worst and most frustrating customer service experiences I have ever had to endure. NO EXCUSE!
  11. I bought a Maha 801 AA Ni-Cad/Li-ion battery charger after seeing it endorsed on this board. It worked great...for a month. After 4 weeks, it melted a cell and even melted the body of the charger. BIG fire hazard, but "No big deal," I thought. "I have the Maha 3 year warranty." Getting through to Maha was a bear. The web site for customer service never received any of my info. Finally, after 4 separate calls and 5 re-sends of the same information to 4 different addresses, they tell me: "We cannot locate your purchase in our vendors database and therefore cannot honor your warranty request." I was livid! I had invested $75 in a charger that was defective. THEY couldn't get it together to send me a valid web address to send the requested purchase invoice, PHOTO of the unit, as well as my pertinent information. I'm really fed up with MaHa/Powerex and would NOT recommend anyone purchase their product. They may have a great charger, but the customer service and warranty are worthless!
  12. Well, we non-Costa Rican's are new to it! The Aggressor Fleet just added the destination a little over a year ago!
  13. Still seeking housing for an old Nikon CP-8400. If you have one or know of one, I would appreciate your letting me know! Thanks!
  14. "We've done close to 30 liveaboards and do not do shore diving. This Aggressor franchise was top notch and had a stellar crew. Captain Mauricio was amiable and very capable. The dual cooks were over the top in quality, presentation, quantity, and taste. Some of the best food we have ever had! Eduardo, the head waiter anticipated and fulfilled our every need. He was incredible. The dive staff was attentive, safety conscious, and more-than-capable. Miguel, the Chief Engineer had everything running perfectly. This old Wind Dancer was in really top notch condition and had an incredible staff. It's a 12-16 hour boat ride from dockside to reach Guanacaste/Bat Islands. Very enjoyable as Eduardo kept our drinks full. High levels of anticipation made the boat trip seem slow....But we arrived the next morning and ready to dive! The diving...Well, let me start by saying "it ain't for sissies!" Guanacaste/Bat Islands is a newly opened pristine advanced dive site seldom ever seen by divers. I have never succumbed to wearing a wet suit and this trip got me don such. My dive computer showed 82 degrees at the surface, but only once, it flipped down to 71degrees….and the next reading said “WTF?”… and that is bloody cold! There was minimal coral life as we know it in the Caribbean or Western Pacific. Most all of Costa Rica is volcanic with lots of volcanic boulders teeming with fish like we’ve never seen! Nutrient rich Pacific currents keep the massive schools of fish everywhere. We have never seen such large schools of fish, effortlessly parting to accommodate invading divers. The surge was strong and very disconcerting, slamming us around and creating obstacles for all but the most experienced and physically fit divers. Most challenging was to dive from the Okeanos very-well-equipped dive tenders. We are used to stepping off the boat into the water. I had a new BC and needed to re-learn how to adjust my buoyancy with it. Visibility was also challenging. (Could be the season?) Bull Sharks came to investigate but only looked like shadows. 30-40' was normal and 60' maximum visibility was infrequent. This site is relatively virgin in it's lack of diver impact. Very healthy reefs and fish. Many sea horses and squadrons of Spotted Eagle Rays. Photography subjects were bright and plentiful, but the surge and debris in the water made for photography HELL! Not sure I would go back with so many other easier-to-dive sites in the world, but all in all, the Guanacaste/Bat Islands Okeanos Aggressor made for an excellent dive adventure. All advanced divers should do it!”
  15. Saw these used in my latest liveaboard dive trip. The http://www.lightdome.works/diffusers, behind the lens plane and pointed outward really reduced the amount of visible backscatter in the water. I was really impressed with their effectiveness to the point that I am buying a set. Take a look!
