  9. Hi everyone, Recently I updated the firmware of my Nikon D200 to the 2.01 but since I did it every time I put a fully charge battery it display as if the battery wasn't charge. I tried with different batteries but it is always the same problem. I read on the Nikon website that it was a problem with the previous 2.00 firmware but the 2.01 will fix it but it doesn't seen to work on my camera. Does anyone had the same problem before? Thanks David

  12. Thanks for you replies, The camera was set up on Manual exposure and 100 ISO. Every time the camera freeze I wasn't able to change aperture or shutter speed or even to see the Menu. It looks like that the problem only happens when the camera is inside the housing. Thanks for all your help David
  13. Hi everyone, Yesterday I went diving with my Subal ND20 and Nikon D200, everything was working perfect until about five minutes into the dive when I realize I wasn't able to take any photos. The camera was on and I was able to see the top display but when I looked thought the view finder I couldn't see anything and I wasn't able to turn the camera off. When I came out the water I took the camera off the housing and I removing the battery everything was fine, just to be safe I put a new camera battery. On the second dive I took few photos and everything was fine but the same thing happen again. Does anyone had a similar problem before? Thanks. David

  16. Hi Everyone, I'm planing a trip to the Philippines and I was considering buying a new lens for this trip. I already have the old Nikon 105 mm, Sigma 50 mm and Tokina 10-17 mm. I'm looking for a lens that I can use for macro and wide angle during the same dive. I read about the Sigma 17-70 mm macro and looks like a very interesting lens. Does anyone use this lens underwater? it is worth it? Thanks for your help

  25. Hi everyone, I'm thinking about doing a trip to the Philippines on September October for three weeks. I have never been there but I read good review about it for underwater photography. Does anyone has any recommendations about what are the best places for diving and underwater photography there? and what are the best flight connections to get there from the USA. Thanks.
