  3. Hi, I have a Nauticam CMC-1 that I am looking to sell. I have only used it on one dive trip for three dives. In perfect condition. Let me know if you are interested. I am in Australia so not sure what postage would be.
  4. I'm considering purchasing a Canon 100mm Macro lens. I see that the lens is available either WITH or WITHOUT Image Stabilization. Is it worth spending the extra money to get the version WITH Image Stabilization. Port availability should not be a problem - I hope to be able to use my existing macro port (Canon 60mm) with a couple of extensions. Thanks for any advice provided.
  5. I don't know - you'd have to do your own research.
  6. Inon Straight Viewfinder. As new condition. Has been used on a Nexus housing, but will fit Hugyfot, Seatool, Sea & Sea, and others. Opening (Round) to housing measures 30mm across. Comes with spare o-rings (2) Current new price is US$599 This high performance viewfinder extends eyepoint without changing image size in viewfinder. 100% of camera’s finder image is seen (1.0x) without any vignetting, even underwater with a mask. Lens Construction: 3 groups, 5 elements. The viewfinder is positioned in parallel with the camera’s finder so viewing replicates same natural eye position relative to camera as when shooting on land. Also, with the straight viewfinder it is possible to make fine distance adjustments between housing and subject by just moving housing relative to subject, without readjusting your body position each time, and without loosing sight of the subject in the viewfinder. Will sell for US$400 with free postage. Payment by PayPal

  9. Has anyone had experience with using an Inon Viewfinder? I have a choice of the 45 degree or Straight version for my Nexus housing. No problems with installation - I am wondering about the differences in using the two versions, and why you would choose one over the other. Thanks
  10. My rig is a Canon 50D, Nexus housing, 2 x Inon Z240 strobes I was previously using Fibreoptics, but have recently changed to Cable connections. Main advantage of Fibroptics is the ability to use eTTL, and the fact that the fibreoptic system is waterproof. Biggest disadvantage is that the internal camera flash has to fire with each photo taken. Problem here is that towards the end of a double dive, taking lots of photos, the camera battery is running down, causing a huge lag between photos while waiting for the camera battery to recharge. If you usually only do single dives you may not have this problem, but I was finding it a huge problem. Also a handy hint if using fibreoptics - set the internal camera flash compensation to the lowest possible setting. It doesn't take much light to fire the strobes optically, and it does save battery power and heat buildup inside the housing. I've also found that with my particular camera, the shutter speed is limited to 1/250 using the internal flash to trigger the fibreoptics. This may be different for other cameras?? No problem using cable connection, I can choose whatever shutter speed I like and the strobes will still fire. I'm rapt in the cable setup now, having used both. I can shoot on continuous burst for as long as I like, limited only by the ability of the strobes to recharge. Hope this helps. DiveGirl 50 http://www.yambabeach.net.au
  11. I've been lucky enough to "play" with a Canon 50D this weekend, and I was really keen to try it in my Ikelite 40D housing. And, unfortunately, after many hours of experimenting, I can report the THE TTL CIRCUITRY DOES NOT WORK So....for all of you waiting for that information.....there it is. It does not recognise the +/- compensation commands from the housing and just fired the flash at full no matter what the setting. Same with manual settings. The flash fired at full power no matter what. The camera certainly fits in the 40D housing, with no real problems. A couple of the buttons are switched around - the 50D's INFO button is where the 40D's JUMP button is. Also the 50D's Liveview is accessed from the PRINT button (top left next to MENU). I bit more intuitive to use than the 40D, it gives you a "quick control screen" which I found really useful, and I LOVE the extra pixels in the view monitor. ....aaahh well, it was fun to play.
