  1. I have a fisheye fix fir several years now and I'm happy with it. But if I were in the market today, I would look at the Light and Motion. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Vp H cmhb
  2. Wod t go with the Sigma 17-70 lens as you only lens. Bit. Bad lens, but something you would want too add to your collection. Mine doesn't come out often. First 2 lenses, IMHO,with a crop sensor camera, would be a tokina 10/17 FE anda Nikon 60 macro Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Vp H cmhbffc
  3. I think, by the sound if it, you are looking for a sound blimp for your camera. If you are not familiar with them, they are a housing, just like what you have for underwater use and is primarily used by photographers who work on films set, theatre, or anywhere else that you need to silence the camera. Never used one, but I assume it is much lighter than the UW setup. Hope this helps Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Vp H cmhbffc
  4. Jason down sized from a D7000. Thats why he's shooting the NEX. He can get it all in 1 carry bag! Kirk Hey Jason, Are these from Blue Herron in early Dec during the macro course? Hope all is well. Kirk
  5. Even when you "throw" away those pixel, you still got plenty left though. If memory serves correctly, doesn't it give you an 18mp file? Which is plenty. Hell my Nikon D90 is 12mp and i have not had any trouble with not having enough pixel to print. I've printed up to 20x24 without any issues. Just my 2 cents.
  6. I dont think that it would work. I wouldnt think that the plunger would move if you lost pressure.

    What about the Xit404 tripods? Any experience? Good or bad?
  8. Correct me if I'm wrong, but since the Aquatica has the 67mm threads, they should work on the Subsee adapter to swing in and out. Although I have not tried it. If a member can chime in at had tried this combo, I would sure like to know. Kirk
  9. Chrck backscatter and Blue Water Photo & Video
  10. Thanks for be photos and info on the Hogy system. I wonder what is would cost you to get the system fixed?
  11. Maybe difficult to pick up that housing for what your willing to pay, especially since the 7D replacement isnt out yet. Someone just posted this housing for $2300. Chevk it out here: http://wetpixel.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=49748&hl= Kirk
  12. Try resizing the images with. 72ppi and repost. That should work and would help us trouble shoot. What is your aperture and shutter speed with these pictures Kirk
  13. Backscatter just put up a video of the product 2 days ago. It covers installation and how to use it. Kirk
  14. I called backscatter and spoke with someone who said it would probably $100 over the manual version. Which does seem to be a bad price. Hopefully that is correct.
  15. Link above does not work. I found it at: http://www.vividhousings.com/custom-fit-leak-sentinel.php Kirk
  16. I like that concept. I never us the flash compensation on my housing. I have an Aquatica. I know from servicing my housing, that all of the rotating shafts are ge same size. Kirk
  17. Looks like about $290. Here's a link to the price list. http://uwcamerastuff.com/housing_sentry_price.htm Kirk
  18. They told me that the electronics would be built into the valve, however, the battery will be located inside the housing. I have not seen the unit though. Now bear in mind, it does everything the manual version does, but offers continuos feedback. So, if the battery dirs during the trip, you just go to the manual way. Kirk
  19. The electronic version would also give you an indicator light that would blink a cetain color if the pressure was in a certain range and would change colors when it fell out of that range, indicating that you have a leak. The benefit of such system would be that you would always know the status of your seals. Whereas with the manual system, you pump it up and then rehook the gauge at a specific time (i.e. 30 minutes or later) and see if you have lost any pressure. Kirk
  20. I spoke with Backscatter at our world underwater and they said no that it could not be converted. Kirk
  21. I've been waiting for this for several months. Ever since having a minor flood thus past summer. Luckily, I didn't loose any equipment. However, U'm going to wait on the electronic version. Kirk
  22. There will be an electronic version to follow. It will be called the AirLock Electronic. Kirk On their site, http://www.backscatter.com/sku/bs-alm.lasso , it does not list it, but there is a box for other. I would call them at 831-645-1082 Kirk
