  1. Hi WetPixelers I am a happy onwer of Aquatica housing for 70D equiped with the MOISTURE AND VACUUM SENSOR SYSTEM (http://www.aquatica.ca/en/accessories_surveyor.html). So far, it has more than 50 dives with no issues. Some days ago, after the end of the dive and the entry to the boat, the sensor start to blink red and the audible signal start. The camera and strobes work fine but the alarm was on. At the port, i open it an find 1 drop of water (!) at the lower part of the housing with no visible entry point. At home, i clean everything, remove the battery from the sensor system and after some hour i reposition and the system continue to flash red and the audible voice is on. Today, again i replace the battery and still the same behavior (here a video red lights). What i need to do? Reset the system with jumpers? Any idea also in what can cause a water drop inside the housing after the dive? Looking foward Dimitris
  2. Hi, Am looking for an Aquatica 70D housing. If any available around the corner, please let me know. D.
  3. Am interested. PM for details and more photos
  4. The problem is related to the battery cap. I have to change them as the metal part that contact with the batteries is almost flat and don't have a good contact. So, flash survive
  5. Thanks Tim I will run some more check (battery cap change, clean with vinegar n' water) and hope that will help. Let see of others have similar issues and save it D.
  6. Good morning Wetpixels ! A happy user of S&S 110a strobes for 5 years, after a dive with ENELOOP batteries, i have a flood (?) or battery problem. I find few water and battery fluids in the housing. I clean it carefully and dry it as well. After some days, i was preparing for a new dive and during the housing preparation i notice that this strobe didn't operate. No RED light after the position to ON. I test the same batteries to the second one and was perfect. So, any idea ? Flood ? Malfunction to the battery conpartment ? Any advice ? Can i serve it ? Does worth ? And if yes, to whom ? Thanks for Dimitris
  7. Am looking for S&S 110a strobe (s) in good and full working conditions. Open in resonable prices
  8. Thanks Tim The fix cost 250 euros (EXR) so just paid for Diopter for this lense is not something that i have see/read around, so the EXR will solve this. Bigger dome is also an option but for CFWA staff. Dimitris
  9. Hi Tim Example first > Aquatica mini dome + Canon 8-15 + 18453 EXR = Center crop https://copy.com/DxwZqGGdLV8i92L1 Low right crop https://copy.com/yIZvbHuxUjCd0WIE How much "better" can these be with the correct ? Images are from RAW > JPEG. No editing. Natural light shot @ 2m depth.
  10. Hi ! A question arrise when i have (or we) to choose/use a new lense that needs a new extension ring (sometimes less that 5-6mm) shorter or longer from what we have (or we can affort to buy....). What is your opinion/experience on this ?
  11. Hi digital friends I have for sale the housing of Aquatica for 40/50D. Has two 5 Pin Nikonos Bulkheads. The reason is that i will upgrate to a new system. 1000 euros + shipping worldwide. Paypal payment only.
  12. Dear Wolf, Thanks for your time and the precious comments for the systems. Seems that GoPro is always some years beyond the other companies. Dimitris
  13. If you will split it i want the mini dome.
  14. Good morning Looking for a supplementary camera (video oriented) for my work (marine ecologist / cartographer) and having no great expectations about the image quality i want your view. Which of the above mentioned or any other camera ? The use will be the recording of seascapes (mediterranean reefs, sand banks, seagrass meadows, etc) for habitat mapping and for recording the biota. If needed we have the equipment for a "pro" result but is bulky and we need something "consumable" Any opinion/though is welcome. Depth of our work is max 55m.
  15. Dear Jean I check it and yes, is on position. I also see that t can adjust the plate by screw/unscrew the two low allew screws. Any other advice/ solution ?
  16. Hello Wetpixel community I face an issue with my Aquatica housing and i need a help as i cannot solve it by myself (i try lots of different solves but nothing work). As you can see in the image the red cirlced part is the one that rotate the back control of the camera and change the aperture as well as other controls. This part doesn't function as it has and i have to rotate it lots of times in order to chane it - it spins and glides. I change ths small rubber ring but no solution. I add some more rubber on, nothing. I assume that the problem comes from the green string. What can i use in order to replace the green string ? Or any other opinion / solution ? Does anybody face similar issue in the past ? Dimitris https://www.dropbox.com/s/1xgbmlxked4bzl6/_MG_1264%20b.jpg
  17. Hello Wetpixel community, I have a minor issue and am looking for suggestions. I have an Aquatica 40/50D Canon underwater housing which has the old focus knobs. These are not so easy to be controld by using gloves. Apart from the XIX 404 focus knobs replacement, do we have other solutions ? Anybody who has replace them with the new Aquatica ? Any idea where to find them as well as the price ? Dimitris
  18. Good morning, Am fully interested in the mini dome if you want to spit it. Let me know Dimitris
  19. I have the same question and i just run a test. The same image in JPEG and TIFF @ 300dpi to my photo lab and then examination from the same distance under same light conditions. It was not possible to see any difference. But, i don't know what results i will have if print them in a book (at a printing shop by using CMYK).
  20. Interesting in the minidome. Is available ? Can be used with the 8-15 fisheye lens ? Any images on ?
