Nice pic! The idea of getting the nudi to cross a mirror (is that 7 years of bad luck?) was a very cunning plan although I'm sure there are purists who would not approve . The effect is lovely - well worth the cold wait.
A couple of very minor thoughts which are really counsels of perfection:
- I'd be tempted to lighten the body of the nudi very slightly. There are lovely colours there which I think could look a little brighter. Maybe a slight adjustment to the Vibrancy?
- Secondly I think I'd have a go at lightening up the shadow a bit behind the rinophores. Not easy but maybe doable with the Lightroom Shadows slider.
But like I say, these are counsel of perfection. The composition is super and your patience was rewarded.

Over time, I think readers figure out who to trust, which comments to trust, and to figure out the author's bias. But we all get suckered a few times too!
I've traveled with a Manfroto BeFree carbon tripod in Europe and beyond and have never had a problem. They are quite small. But, as hellhole implies, so much is down to the individual check-in clerk. Maybe a slightly discreet concealment! I've never heard of them being stopped by security.

Don’t take the camera to sony if you can’t reproduce the issue. Open a ticket only when you can
Yeah, I'd agree with this. I suspect Sony will just saying Nothing To See Here, Folks.

That’s exactly what I’m trying to do, and this would be much more simple. I’m glad I posted, because otherwise I’d have done it the hard way. Thank you!!
Do read this right and you are trying to plug two fibre optic cables into one bulkhead?
If so, Inon have a rubber bush that fits the standard fibre optic bulkhead but allows two fibre optic cable ends to fit into it. Would that be a simple solution?
Here's a link to them at Reef Photo:
I suggest it would also be worth trying to recreate the issue topside without the housing. This would then help you eliminate whether it's a housing issue or a camera issue.
Slightly fiddly for sure but worthwhile. You don't need to worry about focus lights and I would think it unlikely that it's a trigger/strobes issue.

Tim, you are wonderful. Let me see if I get an answer from
No worries. Just shout if you need it. Miso at Vivid is really helpful. Have a great trip!
Curiously I have a spare one. Mailing from Sint Maarten is not very reliable but if you let me know where you are, I’ll try and work out a way to get it to you.

Thank you - yep he tried it and failed with me
Babs has Zoom ring Nikon 18-55 for Subal housing for sale in good condition Here’s his email firstname.lastname@example.org
THAT IS A SCAM! It's the same guy as Patrick Hussre

I've just bought one.
Now I'm in the mess of post Brexit custom workflow. I did not pay any VAT and now I should pay it in Italy. What a mess!
On behalf of the British Nation, I apologise unreservedly for the utter ***up of Brexit. I spent a 35-year career promoting Britain in the EU. I could weep.
They are both scammers. Don't respond!
And this happens on land, outside the housing?
Yep, for macro, closer isn usually better.
I don't have the Canon lens but on the Nikkors, you can use the slightly longer minimum distance setting switch to speed up the AF function - that is if you don't need the closest focusing point for a particular shot (or maybe at all!)
I agree with the guys, if you are determined to stay with the Inons (and why not?) keep checking the Classifieds. Both Z240s and Z330s are cropping up quite often. You should be able to get one or two.
Having said that, I switched to Retras about 2.5 years ago. Love them!!!
Nice image! That is very cool.
Curious that you had a similar though less frequent problem with the A7III.
Makes me wonder whether there is a button in the housing that is pressing too hard on one of the camera buttons. Can you maybe recreate the problem topside? If you can, try noting what buttons you are pressing.
This does sound, to me, like a housing button alignment problem especially as you had the same problem with the A7III even after a repair.

I have one OK example to show. I suspect it nears the best performance I'm going to get with this combo. It was shot at F14 and shows a lot of lettuce coral from edge to edge.
Thanks, Craig. That's really useful. Look pretty good, I reckon. That ICL is a chunk of change though especially in addition to the 230 dome.
Would really recommend you upload the pics as JPGs and not HEICs. A lot of members cannot access the latter.

Yeah, that's what I figured. Maybe for fast moving seals or dolphins with wide-angle
I used to use the Sigma 15mm on a Nikon D800. I really liked it and it was my go-to wise-angle lens for the full frame camera body.
This is a subject that must be discussed every three months. Definitely worth doing a search and you'll find every combination: Pelican cases, back packs, soft shell cases, hard shells, charm, bluster, switch to Business, pay excess baggage, stuff a fishing jacket.
For years - actually decades - I've gone with a Pelican 1510 plus a backpack or big shoulder bag all in the cabin. That contains pretty much all the camera stuff (housing, a couple of ports, couple of camera bodies, lenses, strobes..... ) minus the arms which are with my dive gear in the checked bag which usually weighs 22-23kgs. I don't think I have ever had to pay excess baggage.
How much action tracking goes on in u/w photography? Just asking…
in Photo / Video Showcase
I must admit I don’t really like the idea of moving critters around but if one feels the urge to tread the boards…..
Bill, can you post a pic of the stage? (Best laugh I’ve had today)
