  1. Thanks! We have decided to remodel....there goes the dive gear budget, lol.
  2. Sort of what I thought, thanks. I love the RX series, not great at the extreme ends, super macro/natural light wide angle but plenty good for me. I looked around and found Canon made a new 4k version of her camera. Looks identical, will drag the housing down the local camera store and see if it functions.
  3. So after a 7yr hiatus from diving we have retired and are ready to dive back in!!! We are reviewing our camera gear and deciding what needs to be fixed, junked and replaced. The wife shoots the Canon HF G30 (1090max) in a Gates housing. The video on our 4k TV still looks great. She loves macro but not really techy. The flexibility/point and shoot function of a camcorder works for her. BUT she finds the housing with lights a little big. 1. Is there anything out there smaller and as flexible as her beloved camcorder that is 4k? 2. Her old Big Blue lights are shot. What minimum 6k lumen lights, in the reasonably priced category, do people like? We are not super picky about the "color" happy to play with a little in post. I have my Sony RX100 V, Nauticam housing, WWL-1, and CMC-1. Been happy with the results. Anything newer, better but still in the compact camera class? Mainly shoot stills. Thanks!
  4. Sorry, not for underwater but....Peak Design Capture Clip, works to fix all their attachments to your backpack strap, waist band or belt. Also the Lens Quick Change holder. Will hold two Sony mount lenses. Going for a hike you can swap between lenses without digging around in your backpack. The Clip and Lens holder are versions 2. So the Lens Holder DOES NOT rotate. Both pcs sold for $54 each. Will sell both pcs for $60 together.
  5. Think Tank Urban Disguise 60V2.0 https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/847332-REG/Think_Tank_826_Urban_Disguise_60_V2_0.html $100 (or best offer) + Shipping in US/Canada via Paypal This is the bag they never weigh at check in. I can fit all my RX100 setup in it along with travel docs, music player, etc..... The trick is just making it look light on your shoulder, lol. Also makes just a great briefcase and standard carryon. Its in excellent condition and I will refund your money in full, minus shipping, if you have any issues with the quality of the bag. See link for all the pockets and storage areas.
  6. Bump, "buyer" was scammer, see above. Happy to take offers. Will even take it in to get new neck & wrist seals but the $178.00 will need to be included in your offer.
  7. Ha! Not Sold. Total Craigslist scam: Buyer claimed they are moving, would send me a cashiers check. When the check arrived it was for $2999.00 on a $800 drysuit. I emailed them and they said they were having issues with the mover, just cash the check, take out my cost and give the rest to the mover to cover their moving costs. SCAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Tried contacting the Seattle police department but they are not taking calls for anything but life threatening situations. FBI, fill out this form...Want to bust the guys but in the end just told them happy to shred the check or mail it back and radio silence. Anyone want to buy a Drysuit?????????
  8. Thanks for your interest. I have a couple of offers, price is now at US$1000. If you want it you would have to be at $1100 plus shipping, from Seattle.
  9. Whoops, this is a $3200 suit, willing to take offers hoping to sell if for more than $800.
  10. If you are not familiar this system has a latex wrist seal and then a standard industrial strength latex glove goes over the cuff. Preferred system of the staff at the local aquarium where I used to volunteer.
  11. I have come to terms that I will never cold water dive again only used the suit once in the last 10yrs in fresh water. Again I apologize it's not camera gear. This is my XL DUI CF200 Drysuit in excellent condition. Any issues and I will refund your money in full, minus return shipping I am 6' about 200lbs, not too baggy or tight, so should fit a range of people. If I recall I had DUI take some of the bulk out of the body. I had an additional dump valve installed on the right "cuff" for ease of buoyancy. Included are my Dive Concepts insulated one piece, Like new Rock Boots size +11, and carry bag. You will need to have new latex wrist and neck seals put in. Local shop charges $165 for all three installed. On the back there is one quarter sized abraded patch where my backplate rubbed. It has been sealed. Any questions just let me know.
  12. Some form of exploratory live aboard trip Indonesia.
  13. Cleaning up the camera closet and finding small items (non-underwater) I just don't need but feel guilty about just throwing away...Filters I never used, lightly used camera bags/backpacks, etc...Any suggestions? I am aware of Craigslist, lol.
  14. Probably something wrong with my brains wiring but I did not like the 45 degree. I just had trouble framing a shot. I switched to the straight and was much happier.
  15. Thanks for info! Nice chart, very handy. So true, nothing about mixing high end electronics and saltwater is cheap, lol. I once housed my Sony A7 but not sure if I will do that ever again. So nice not having to pack a separate case for the "Super Dome". Only times I really missed a full frame camera underwater was shooting natural light humpback shots and of course over/unders. For awhile I had the Sony A7s and loved the low light video out of it. Will have to read the reviews but wonder if any of the new cameras are on par with the older A7s with low light video?
  16. Trusty Sony A7RII was damaged beyond repair. Shoot mainly sports and landscapes. 70% stills, 30% Video. Strictly hobby. Do travel a fair amount. Currently shooting RX100V in Nauticam housing, so mainly a dryland camera. Can't rationalize a +$4500 camera. All Sony lenses. Do shoot in a lot of low light situations. Any opinions????
  17. Total hobbyist, but at the prodding of a photographer friend put about 30-40 pics on Shutter Stock and Getty. Last year I made....US$27.08 and $31.20! Most downloaded were this great white and a hawksbill. Not one of my beloved reef shots sold, lol.
  18. Traveling with "The Precious" Traveling with underwater photo/video systems has always been a project. We have always carried on our photo gear. You can almost always rent dive gear at your destination if bags go missing. Many airlines are now weighing carry-ons, with most capping weight at 17lbs. For smaller regional airlines I was never able to find a carryon bag for a DSLR system that fit in the small overheads. Here is a quick break down on rough weights for carrying on a “full system”. Includes everything you would need to shoot from lenses to battery chargers. If you are packing an 8-10” dome and flat port you will need a second carry on.
