  1. I got the same problem with my sea & sea ext & macro port base. Last time i need almost an hour to separate them. I think i have to buy one more ext LOL
  2. Hi Matt, How it the Inon 45 Viewfinder on D3? Can it restore the whole frame like viewing it on land? Stone
  3. I tested my MKIII housing yesterday, really love the controls! You really need the semi-dry, around 17 C yesterday. Cheers
  4. 1.3 crop is a problem! Using FF fisheye like sigma & canon 15mm becomes less fishy. Anyone tried with tokina 10-17 FE on 1DII or 1DIIN? Here is the link with tokina 10-17 on a 5D: http://dc.watch.impress.co.jp/cda/review/2...11/17/5039.html
  5. 0.8x interchangeable pickup viewfinder ( Product number 46104) We recommend this viewfinder for near-sighted users and for photographers who want to make sure the focus is clear in the center of the image during macro photography. You can interchange this viewfinder with the standard pickup viewfinder to best suit your needs
  6. Sea and Sea has a new TTL converter which is compatible with YS90Auto.
  7. Matt In Aquatica's page you will find a lens chart under the catalog of D70/S housing. You will see what kind of port and rings you need. stone
  8. Hi Matt When you screw in the dome into the housing/entension ring, hold on the dome, DON'T just hold on the dome shape. stone
  9. You are right. But this multi-controller allow me to change focus point in just ONE click. stone
  10. I used to dive with Sea & Sea, actually the port systems for both vendors are just the same. For sea & sea, basically you only need the fisheye dome and a flat port, to fit different glasses, you only need to apply sutable extension rings. stone
  11. Just a few points 1) There is an Athena Dome port which is made of glass for Sea & Sea housings. Aquatica dome port are plastic, and dome shape is just HOLD on the port. 2) Sea & Sea housing has port locking and marking, Aquatica has NO locking and NO marking for ports. 3) Sea & Sea 5D can access the jogdial, Aquatica CANNOT. 4) Sea & Sea 5D can add an external TTL coverter to use TTL. Aquatica bulkhead only has one pin, not possible for TTL.
  12. A bit offtopic, Canon 5D + 15mm FE also produce 180 degrees, right?
  13. Hi After 30 dives with my Aquatica 5D housing, I found some sand on the edges of the LCD screen window of the housing! Is it safe to continue use this housing ?!! Is it normal?! stone please see the picture for reference.
  14. Alex, I tried my friend's Seacam 1DsMKII housing, the shutter & aperture position is worth the extra $$$(double of Aquatica system). When I have to change the shutter / aperture I have to hand off from the handle, and that may miss some shots or have to reposition the camera again. But I will need a 5D housing on early April, and heard that from my friend's experience the response from Seacam Asiapacific is far more slow than the situation in US. He finally get his housing 12 weeks after placing order.
  15. A bit offtopic. Just wanna know if both the bulk head of the Aquatica 5D is all 3 pins? I've got one 3 pins and one got ONLY 2 pins (still can trigger flash, and I know only 1 pin is being wired). My 5D housing also Black painted, but also got the bubble on the surface. I'll try to post picture later. I would agree that the Aquatica mounting is very secure, but it will take some time to align with.
  16. I've got a NEW 5D housing from aquatica last week. I'm new to aquatica, but I have been use D70 housing from Sea & Sea, the finishing of Sea & Sea is much superier than aquatica. Some observations: Port both Dome, Flat & Rings: Aquatica: do NOT even have a mark to indicate whether it is on position. Sea & Sea: have both OPEN and LOCK mark clearly. Dome Port: Aquatica: the dome port shape have to screw in, it just HOLD on the Dome NOT FIXED!! have to handle very carefully. Sea & Sea: integrated design, vey strong material. Paint: Aquatica: some bubble on the surface, looks like DIY level. Sea & sea: even after 100+ dives, the housing still looks great. I'm considering send it back to my dealer.
  17. Hi Anyone has the experience with Aquatica 8" DOME + 17-40L? As I know (from Seacam USA page) the red ring and some letters on the lense will appear on the pictures, user have to buy a lense shape and cut the coners in order to avoid the problem. will this happen in aquatica settings? source: http://www.seacamusa.com/1740reflections.shtml Stone
  18. So far, I can only see sea & sea implement this button in their housing.
  19. I found that none of the 20D manufacturer have implement this control, so should be the same for 5D. May be its to hard to implement this function, as the button is too close to the LCD.
  20. I think we are talking about different, i'm refering to the button next to the top right corner of the LCD.
