  1. Hi again Have PM'd you re payment. Strangely your post with your address is there in my email but has not appeared in the Wetpixel thread. A drinking session with Fiona - that would be a heavy night. Been on a few trips with her. Still in touch - she was a neighbour of ours in Coldingham for many years and used to dive with us often off my boat.. Bob Clay has sadly died but you probably heard that already. Agreed Pete was one amazing skipper and is one of the few locals who actually was really interested in everything to do with the sea in his patch - he could read all the signs from water movement, bird behaviour and such like and know exactly when slack water would start and finish. He was pretty outrageous as you doubtless realise and I could tell you a few good, unprintable but hilarious stories. Thanks - yes am on iNaturaist - pretty useful for tricky ID's. Am also on Flickr - flickr.com/photos/jim1 Jim
  2. Thanks Tony - small world. Jack laws was a regular buddy from the early 60's but gave up diving some years back. Still in good shape though @ age 85. Pete Gibson not so good however. Nice Flickr portfolio - enjoyed a peep at that. You didn'y provide your preferred postal method.....? Jim
  3. Sorry, my fault, Tony. Forgot it had been reduced already. Yes will sell for £100 + postage . I am away from home at the moment and will be back Friday p.m. Will then package it up and let you know the final figure. Have you a preferred shipping option? Jim
  4. Yes still avaiable. I was thinking of sticking it on Ebay and have been checking it over again. I find there is a faint scuff mark at the 9 o'clock position about 1 inch from the outer exterior circumference (if that makes sense). Don't know how I missed it before and apologies for that. Am sure it will easily polish out but if it were mine I would not bother because it will never show on photos. Other than that it is immaculate and like new. Price therefore reduced to £175.
  5. Only items remaining are as follows: 1. Sea & Sea compact dome port. Have noted two tiny dings - and I mean tiny! One near the centre and the other (more of a slight scuff really) about 3.5cms from the perimeter. Will easily polish out if you want to go to that trouble. ** Price therefore reduced to £100** 2. Ikelite iTTL adapter £25 3 Ikelite to Nikon-style brand new sync cord £30 NB I have a 100% record on Ebay in over 200 transactions
  6. Sorry to be dim but is a com port another name for a Nikonos-type bulkhead. Never heard of that before. FWIW, I use a 5d3 & 2 Inons in manual mode without any problems
  7. Sea&Sea zoom gear 31107 for Nikkor ED 12-24mm f4G(IF), NX Standard macro port and 4cms port extension now all SOLD
  8. Ikelite DS160 now SOLD
  9. Ikelite to Ikelite unused sync cord and Ikelite double sync cord now SOLD
  10. Thanks. Cost would be £44 UPS 1/2 day service or £35 DHL 4 day service. Package weight is 4.5kg approx. All fully tracked. I may have to leave out the D300 box due to the extra weight - would decide this when actually doing the packing. No insurance but will price this if you wish but you may be able to fix this locally.
  11. Selling for my former photo buddy who is seriously ill. He has not dived for about ten years and most of his gear has hardly been used as you will see by the camera actuations.

  12. Thanks Pomacentridae, very helpful. Got a prompt reply from them as follows: Reef Fishes of the East Indies sent Today at 3:07 AM You will have access to a new, updated version for Android. We had to remove it from both Google Play and the Apple App Store due to update requirements. That's why it stopped working. The new, updated versions are in development and will have more content as well. Please give us several weeks and you will be able to update your versions soon. Stay tuned -
  13. I had the Android version and that also stopped working but earlier than Jan 2020. If I recall correctly, it cost about £35 sterling and I only had use of it for about 12 months. It vanished from Playstore also. I eventually found the contact details of the cpreators and emailed them asking for my app to work or my money back. As expected no reply. What a rip-off; put them down as a load of scheisters. Could you possibly give me their current contact details so I can try again? PM me if you wish Thanks in advance
  14. I would urge caution about going down the Sea & Sea route despite your previous experiences. There are plenty of threads on here about the poor reliability of their more modern models and extremely poor and slow customer support. I go along with Tim's view of Inon but have no experience of Retra
