  1. The 15mmFE has the rear element very close to the lens mount thus no clearance. I've not used the Kenko but have a couple of the Canon 1.4x's and the front element extends beyond the lens mount and fits into the receiving lens. You might be able to use an extension tube to couple the two but the minimum focusing distance becomes very near and may be a problem for getting a dome port too near to your subject, perhaps even subjecting your port to potential scratch damage from the reef etc.
  2. Have Ports, Stobes, etc too I'd be willing to discuss with buyer of Subal housing or to other interested buyers after housing sells. Will not separate or list until housing sells.
  3. Update - I've decided I'll absorb the fees if you decide to purchase via Square with a credit card. I prefer them over Paypal as I've had a couple issues with PP in the past. Buyer still pays shipping. Thanks.
  4. Thanks Forest. I appreciate the kind words. I hope it worked out well for your trip. Cary
  5. For Sale - Subal CD4 Housing for Canon 1DMKIV - New $5000 http://www.subal.com/en/produkte/gehaeuse/..._mk4/1d_mk4.php Never been wet. Still in Bubble Wrap. Type 4 Port Mount. Handles, Extra O-Ring incl. Please email me at carydeanphoto@gmail.com. My internet connection is spotty and I can't always log on but I still get emails on my mobile. I'm in Bangkok, Thailand. Will try to get pics up tomorrow. Buyer pays shipping and Paypal fee if that's how payment is made. I can also take Credit Cards via Square plus their fee (less than PP's fee). Thanks. Cary
  6. Flew them last year from Nadi. Ticket counter was helpful and gave me a pass on carry on camera bag (which was way over weight but had been allowed by every other airline ) after I pleaded my case about pro camera gear etc. Security agent sent me back to counter (different agent) where they proceeded to hit me with $350US in overweight fees and claimed they would gate check at boarding time. They never came back at boarding time and I still carried bag on. Was less than happy and felt like I'd been scammed but was happy to be on to next leg of trip.
  7. Thanks Forest. Great dealing with you. I hope you enjoy the new rig!
  8. It's like a 28mm in 35mm terms.
  9. Thanks for the inquiry. I'm awaiting payment from a fellow Wetpixeler which is why it's not marked sold (yet). Should be wrapped up by early next week. If for any reason it should fall through I'll let you know. Thanks again!
  10. My first instict was Halation http://colorisrelative.com/color/learn/halation/
  11. You're right it is not current tech but it still works... A better investment might be in newer tech but only for a while. There's always something newer. Perhaps a system where you can continue to use the ports (from a system for your 5D1) a couple generations into the future (MKII, MKIII - whatever) would be a better long term benefit. I've found, though it may not always be so, that you lose money every time you buy a housing and then upgrade to the newest and latest. There was a used 5DMK 1 housing that was modified to use with a MKII recently for sale here on WP. It should be better priced than a specific MKII housing (I didn't pay much attention when I glanced at the classifieds). The issue is some housing manufacturers upgrade their port systems (Subal type 3 - type 4) to keep up with the increasing girth of some newer wide zoom lenses which could mean you wouldn't be able to use them on their newer type 4 mount housings. (sometimes there are adapters) I think Aquatica has the same size port mounts and their housings are relatively affordable (especially used) so that might be a more cost effective way to house your MKI. Something to consider.... Good luck.
  12. Need more info. Will it actually be getting wet?
  13. Ft Lauderdale or Monterey. or the Scuba show in Long Beach next month. (not sure what shows may be going on near you)
  14. I have a Cetacea. Attaches to the metal ring under my dovetail for my strobe arms. (this one but with 2 metal clips - http://www.cetaceacorp.com/coil-lanyard-en.html) I didn't know they could be factory customized until I asked the right person. Only $5 addl for the customization.
  15. Nice! Lots of great stuff on your Flickr site too!

  19. I think many of us feel the same way I hope (after the learning curve) it exceeds your expectations. It's pretty fun!
  20. http://www.ulcs.com/ Inons are smaller, lighter and have a confusing UI until you learn it. You'll also face lower guide number, slower recycle times and the need to change/charge batteries more often but great flashes. 250's are faster, more powerful, physically larger and way heavier. They may also be more difficult to position for macro shots (my experience at times) but great flashes. You just have to decide what fits your needs better. Both will do the job.
