  1. Hi Ryan, Thanks for asking. Someone else dredged up the old advert a couple months ago and I did sell it. Thanks. Cary *SOLD*
  2. Never heard of them. Would probably stick to the sponsors of this site or those that pay to advertise here. You'll find that most reputable dealers sell things for about the same price as the next reputable dealer. If it sounds too good to be true....
  3. I might use a bag at the surface but wouldn't venture to any depth no matter what the manufacturer told me. http://www.ikelite.com/web_two/can_elph520.html
  4. Are you talking AF/MF specifically for video or stills shooting? Which camera are you using? Most pro level DSLR's can only MF for video. As for stills both methods work, just depends on your needs, preference etc.
  5. It's an older book but it has a lot of good drawings/photos/graphics that discuss W/A UW photography. http://www.amazon.com/Underwater-Photography-Handbook-Annemarie-Kohler/dp/0811729664/ref=sr_sp-atf_image_2_35?ie=UTF8&qid=1390877722&sr=8-35&keywords=underwater+photography+books
  6. There are some Olympus kits with camera and housing for "around" that price. Generally a little bit more though but not as costly as hosing his existing camera.
  7. Sea and Sea is releasing in housing TTL for the newer cameras. It is camera specific Canon/Nikon - various models, and the unit is slightly different depending on the housing model.
  8. Purchase an unlocked Blackberry off of Craigslist. Android phones work well too. Local sim cards don't need any special dialing for local calls and if you have an unlocked smartphone you can call via Skype over wifi in most areas.
  9. It's a nice image. Don't know if I like it sepia toned... Why shouldn't you be able to process your images as you see fit. It is your art after all. I know many who take DSLR shot images and post to Instagram as a social media marketing tool. I still prefer the mobile image acquisition behind it though. Up to you I imagine.
  10. For sale - Sea and Sea TTL YS Converter C for Canon - Model # 50118 $350. Price Firm. ($650. New) Barely Used - Like New. Don't use it. Would like to pass it on to someone who can use it. Prefer local pick up (Orange County - CA) but will ship within CONUS for cost of shipping. No Intl. shipping - sorry. If you pay by PayPal or Square you'll have to pay the 3%. Thanks for viewing the add. Cary
  11. Sorry -Misread forum (quick view on my mobile...)
  12. So Jack, are you talking about that extra stop of light 2.8 vs 4.0 for acquiring focus not about shooting at 2.8?
  13. Insurance is a monetary gamble as you've stated but something that I still feel necessary to have.
  14. What about The slideshow module in Adobe LightRoom?
  15. Hi Lionel, Try this for starters. http://reefnet.ca/products/subsee/
  16. Quite a nice photo John. I'd have been happy to have taken it myself and the ladies are lovely! (that coming from a somewhat conservative person....)
  17. Nice images Brian. The food on the Truth Aquatics boats out of Santa Barbara is pretty good too.
  18. Both are great lenses. I've shot the 17-40 and own the 16-35 II. I wouldn't say dramatically better but slightly better. The advantage in my opinion (there are probably a few actually) is that you have more light to focus with with a native 2.8 lens than you do with an 4.0 which results in faster AF all other things being equal. I found the Zen 230 to be a great match for either lens with the correct port extension ring.
  19. I'd personally consider one of the specific housings that Canon makes for their P&S (ie: S110) Some of the cameras shoot RAW and are great for topside imaging too. The cameras are around $400 and the housings are a bit less than that and I think the image quality is a bit better than a "Tough" water cam. The depth rating for the Canon housings are also good for scuba diving. (strobe should be added for use at depth) The GoPro's are good but I find them a bit clunky for in hand stills work.
  20. Palau seemed to have better overall options IMO but Yap was good for both Mantas and sharks.
  21. You might try Barry Evans at Samy's in Santa Ana. He knows a ton and does some consulting on the side. I ask him an occasional LR question and he always knows the answer.
  22. Something I never considered. Thanks for allowing me to learn from your misfortune. Hope you figure out a suitable solution.
  23. Don't travel anywhere without spares. If you're several thousand miles from home on an expensive trip why risk all that time and money over the cost of a spare.
