    Inon 165 Macro
  1. I use Tapatalk on my Android - simply awesome ! Can't believe more people haven't responded .........
  2. Great images !! Must get around to going off into the bush myself sometime. Glad to hear you enjoyed your trip to our country.
  3. I stayed at Hippocampus recently. Clean rooms, great food. Aircon, hot showers but not in all of the rooms. Dived with Sea Explorers, no complaints.
  4. Thanks all !! James - I went to Moalboal, Dumaguete (Dauin), Alona Beach, Cabilao, Malapascua and Anilao.
  5. Went off to the Philippines in Oct / Nov, thought I would post some pics. All with the E-3, 50mm macro 1.4 or 2.0 TC.
  6. I just put some heat shrink on mine - sometimes two or three layers till it makes a snug fit into the F/O port of the housing.
  7. I use 2mm OD fibre optic cable with a 1mm core and it works Ok. I guess anything that transmits light will do. I also modified the Inon cap as Bill describes and used heat shrink to increase the OD to fit the port on my housing.
  8. This happened to me a few months ago as well. I hadn't even noticed that the o-ring had slipped out of place untill I did a final inspection of my setup. The o-ring was shot, so I used the spare and have had no problems since. And yes, I only use Inon grease.
  9. Hi Simon Have you considered firing the Z240's with fibre optic cables? The STTL mode works really well, no need for a converter. I use them very effectively with my E-3.
  10. I agree on the Athena port for the 50mm - it is threaded on the outside so you can add Inon close up lenses like the 165. Plus you can also attach a ring flash as well.
  11. Hi Carlos I have the Nexus housing for the E-3. I am really happy with it, the ergonomics work well for me, I have realtively small hands and manage 4 diives a day no problem. I use the internal flash and can usually get 3 dives out of it before changing batteries (around 60 shots per dive), I could probably manage 4 but was not willing to take a chance. I fire my strobes as Phil does, via a fibre optic cable. The only downside to the housing is that if you need the internal flash you cannot raise it once you have closed the housing. Unfortunately I cannot offer a conparison between the two as I have not seen the Seatool housing. Please ask if you need any more info.
  12. Here are some pics shot wjth the 8mm FE http://www.flickr.com/photos/andrews_under...57607008835804/
  13. Here are two links that may help. http://www.kelpfish.net/tip_edge_light.htm http://www.kelpfish.net/strobe.swf
  14. That's exactly what I use - very useful if diving off a RIB. I also throw in a couple of ice bricks if it's warm topside and I know the water is going to be cold - helps prevent fogging.
