  1. For your D500, just convert your NEF files to DNG using the free Adobe DNG converter. Then import as usual into Lightroom 6.
  2. Here's a tip. Get some food grade silicon spray. Take a small bottle (dollar store travel spray bottle). Take a couple of J-cloths or other lint free cloths and some cotton swabs. I am one for cleaning my housing main o-ring when I open it, which is usually once at the end of the day. Grease attracts dirt. I am often shocked at how much junk can collect on the oring and groove, but I do a lot of muck diving. Always dampen the cotton swab with the silicon spray, so as not to leave any fibers behind. I do the same with the port oring and extensions, if I am changing lenses. If not, I'll clean it once or twice in a trip.
  3. You can also buy the setup at B&H photo. You need a different moisture alarm than the original; the old one does not have the vacuum sensor. https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1157674-REG/aquatica_19229_ad7000_surveyor_moisture_and_vacuum.html Here is the pump and valve https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1026434-REG/aquatica_19228_vacuum_valve_and_extracting.html
  4. Price drop $500USD, plus shipping. North America only.
  5. Original style snoot w/o laser pointer (Modeling light transmits through acrylic post). Has been used on one dive. Comes with lanyards, original package, instructions, plus extra oring. Paid $120USD @ Backscatter, yours for $90USD OBO plus shipping. Paypal or Bank wire transfer. I just never got around to using it. Cleaning out unused gear.
  6. I have dragged this around as a back up to my DSLR and used the housing 5 or 6 times. Everything is in great shape, and there are lots of extras. Canon G15 (less than 1200 photos) all original packaging and accessories, plus an extra third party battery. Fantasea FG15 Housing all original packaging and accessories, including diffuser, dual fiber optic connectors, unopened oring grease, plus: Red filter and holder 67mm filter holder Eyeholder F67 for strobe arm extra Nano fiber optic bushing Asking $575USD plus shipping Payment by Paypal or bank wire transfer
  7. Looking for a well cared for Aquatica AD500 housing with either optical or Nikon bulkhead connectors. Deep rated springs and Vacuum system a bonus.
  8. Dibs on the camera given price and accessories, as you already know. Cheers!
  9. I missed out on one last November, and there has not been one on Wetpixel since! Must be in excellent shape and preferably v.2.0. Prefer combo fiber optics/electronic or dual fiber optics. Not interested in dual electronic synch. No prior flooding. Recent service with paperwork a bonus, as well as vacuum system/deep springs. This housing has been discontinued. I can continue using my old system, but will switch if the right match comes along. Without these parameters, I will have to ship, service and upgrade the springs, so price expectation will be much lower. Cheers, Marli
  10. Yes, same species. Giant frogfish, or Antennarius commerson.
  11. Best to buy a good ID book; species are grouped according to taxonomy. However, with recent and continung changes, none are up to date. Always double check the names on WoRMS: http://www.marinespecies.org/
  12. Where was it taken...aside from on a slate? The ocean's a big place. Location is essential in establishing an I.D.
  13. Why not contact Aquatica for a rebuild kit? They can send out what you need.
  14. Just purchased a Nikon D7200 camera body from Aquapaul. Excellent transaction.
  15. PM sent. Interested if it hasn't sold.
  16. I have stayed at four Lembeh Strait Resorts. All have been excellent (KBR, Lembeh Resort, Black Sand and NAD). Best bang for the buck is NAD. You might want to look into photo workshops that some resorts offer. There's one at the end of July at NAD but it's fully booked. There's one in December at Lembeh Resort.
