  1. I had the exact same problem. Tried some different adhesives like Aquasure and two component adhesive but without any luck.

    I was told it was due to inside pressure due to dome attached to housing during travel, allthough i have always removed my dome from the housing when traveling...

    I ended up in buying a new dome port :unsure:


  2. Hi all,

     

    I'm looking at setting up my 40D for a planned trip to Bali later in the year, and unsure which I'd be better off with, the 60mm or 100mm? I know the difference between the two, I guess what I'm after is some advice on which will be more useful for Bali?

     

    While I'm at it, which (Aquatica) macro port would be the better choice, the auto focus one, or the manual focus one?

     

    Many thanks for your help (I know how fun it is spending other ppls money),

    Hi,

     

    I would say that it would depend on the type of location for the pictures you take. I have both lenses and the 100mm gives you the same image as the 60mm, but at a grater distance to the subject. Here in norway we are not always blessed with great visibility and then 60mm is great, but you need to get closer to the subject to get full magnification. Heres where the 100mm is great as you will get the same image but you do not need to get as close and this makes it easier to set up your strobes to avoid backscatter and you also are not scaring the wildlife as easy.

     

    I use focus rings to acheve manual focus, but the lens is always set to auto focus - i use the manual focus to assist the camera finding the focus point.
